anonymous asked:

Your wolf/coyote comparison photo set reminded me of something I've always wondered about. I live in the east, where some of our coyotes are massive and often live in huge packs (I've seen more than 10 in a pack, which is crazy), and they obviously (as you mentioned) have some wolf in their bloodline. So, since grey wolves, red wolves, and coyotes can and do mate and produce viable young in the wild, wouldn't they all be the same species? Just curious what you thought :)

to be honest i don’t know a whole lot about taxonomy so i don’t think i can give a good answer here haha. but i know the way people classify species is kinda complex since there’s no clear line we can look at that separates one species from another. the concept of ‘species’ is something humans made up to make it easier to study and categorize organisms. plants/animals/fungi don’t adhere to any definitions of a species, they just do what they do, and we do our best to group them together based on what makes the most sense to us.

my guess as to the reason wolves and coyotes are considered different species is that they are so distinct as far as appearance, behavior, lifestyle, body language, etc that it outweighs the fact that they can interbreed/produce fertile offspring. 

someone who knows more about this topic, please feel free to correct me or explain further!

I believe these are my first ever gym selfies 😅

They’re not as cute as @murd3rp3ach’s, but I needed proof that the sweat is from my workouts and not trying to get off the couch.

(Also, I usually don’t go to the gym, but I didn’t have self-defense today, so I had to make due).

  • Sakuya: You look like you’re on a diet, Tosaka. That’s a great idea! How’s the fruit plate?
  • Hiyoko: Oh, are you negging me? Let me try! You look like you’re going to spend your life having one epiphany after another, always thinking you’ve finally figured out what’s holding you back, and how you can finally be productive and creative and turn your life around. But nothing will ever change. That cycle of mediocrity isn’t due to some obstacle. It’s who you are. The thing standing in the way of your dreams is that the person having them is you.
  • [Sakuya stares at her in horror.]
  • Hiyoko: Okay, your turn! Ooh, try insulting my hair.
  • Sakuya: I think I need to go home and think about my life.
  • Hiyoko: It won’t help.

Amid the Chaos, Chapter 3


Down the ranks of young Death Eaters they went. Flat to flat, home to home, and Zabini and Nott were by her side the whole way. She never saw Goyle again, but had a run-in with Cassius Warrington who had smiled kindly at her while informing Nott and Zabini that Adrian Pucey had been dealt with—whatever that meant—and that no one was suspicious of their actions so far.

She had made the mistake of getting her hopes up and asked, “Are you trying to get me away from here?”

They went silent and turned, giving one another harsh looks before Nott sighed and shook his head. “Granger, just … no. That collar around your neck is magically keyed with Tracking Charms and a plethora of other unpleasantries I’d rather not discuss. It’s bonded to your magic to keep it repressed. Which means that the only way to get it off of you is to bond that magic to something—someone—else. You have to get married. You’re going to get married tomorrow, and … you’re going to be really fucking upset when you see who its to.”

And she was.

To say that Lucy was terrified for the fates of Natsu and the other two dragon mutants was an understatement. But it was the closest she could get to describing the piercing and twisting knot in her heart as Wendy pressed into her, tightly clutching Lucy’s hand as Erza rested a scrutinizing gaze on her.

“Erza,” Lucy began, but Erza cut her off.

“There’s another one?”

Lucy exchanged a look with the growling Natsu, who paused in giving childish glares to the stunned Gray. He jerked his head in a motion that she supposed was a confirmation. “Yes. Gajeel. And this is Natsu.” She pointed to Natsu. “And this is Wendy.”

“Wendy…?” Erza prompted.

“Marvell, I think,” Wendy said shyly. “I’m…I don’t really know if that’s what it really is..” She tucked her bony frame closer to Lucy, practically hiding against her, and Lucy wrapped an arm around her comfortingly.

Gray, clearly untrusting, glared at Natsu. “And you didn’t think to call the police about this? Why the hell would someone leave them here and simply sell the place?”

“There’s a fourth,” Lucy said suddenly, cutting him off. “But she’s not like them. She’s kind of…connected? To a tree that’s in the center of the building. Mavis. Anyways, they’re not bad, Erza, Gray, they’re just…lost. Hm, Wendy?”

Wendy said nothing, only lowered her gaze and mumbled something under her breath that they couldn’t hear.

Natsu blinked for a moment, tilting his head as if listening for something. “Hold on, I'mma get that Iron Freak down here… OI! GAJEEL!

HEADS UP!!

I WANTED TO POST THIS TO LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT THIS IS GOING ON, SO THAT THEY CAN STAY SAFE AND LOOK OUT FOR ONE ANOTHER, BECAUSE THIS SHIT IS FUCKED! 
 APPARENTLY NAZIS AND OTHER RIGHT WINGERS ARE USING THE GHOST SHIP FIRE TO HELP AUTHORITIES CLOSE DOWN ART SPACES AND OTHER VENUES, THERE’S A LINK TO THE ORIGINAL POST AT THE BOTTOM, BUT HERE’S WHAT THEY’RE SAYING-

“REPORT ALL "ARTSPACES” AND ILLEGAL VENUES TO CRUSH THE RADICAL LEFT.

The Ghost Ship fire is proving to be a much bigger even than a simple fire. It’s being used as the justification for police and fire departments to shut down many similar spaces and venues across the country.

These places are open hotbeds of liberal radicalism and degeneracy and now YOU can stop them by reporting all such places you may be or may become aware of to the authorities, specifically the local fire marshel.

Watch them and follow them to their hives. Infiltrate social circles, go to parties/events, record evidence, and report it. We’ve got them on the run but now we must crush their nests before they can regroup!

MAGA my brothers and happy hunting!“
