Researchers Taught This Gorilla Sign Language And He Immediately Came Out As Gay To His Father

Prepare to have your mind blown!

Scientists at the San Diego Zoo have made a tremendous leap forward. After working for over three years with a 270-pound gorilla named Sampson, researchers say he is now able to fully express over 1,500 signs of modified sign language and has even come out as a homosexual to his father!

Wow. Science FTW! Read more.


I put on a dress shirt at 2 in the morning to take some selfies. This is what I do in my free time oh my god I am trash. At least I’m very cute trash. Oh yeah this photoset features a closet door becuz that’s the only spot with good lighting in my apartment jfc. Follow me for random stuff and cute selfies of me.

you’re all in a phase where you’re writing meta 30 layers deep into the set design and about how like serviette folding is 19th century slang for gay sex or something and im still not over layer 1 like sherlock stood up there and said he loved john the same as his wife did and would never let him down. #proof

What’s to Love: Airing last November, Pat McHale’s Over the Garden Wall was Cartoon Network’s first-ever original, animated miniseries. We loved the eerily sweet story of two half-brothers trying to find their way home so much we published a companion one-shot that was quickly snapped up by folks who just wanted more of this world to experience. Now, we’re expanding the world of Over the Garden Wall with McHale and returning artist Jim Campbell with a full-length story.
What It Is: It’s a new Over the Garden Wall story set between episodes 3 and 4 of the animated series! Wirt and Greg are trying to hitch a ride out of schooltown but end up having to walk. Soon, they come upon two girls playing, and wind up having to keep them entertained so that they don’t wake their giant of a father!

¹ disposable boys come and go like bruises do
and you’re stuck on the wrong edge of the process.

² so you’re hurting, and you hurt. there is no telling which comes first. you punch and bite and cling your forged metal claws into his arms and when it’s over you look over the proof of your existence gouged into his skin and the flowers blossoming between the walls of his ribs. it is possible they would last forever. yours do.

³ then a few days later they’re gone and he’s whole and pure, white as you’ll never be like the infallible sun lighting up your world. you go at it again, harder. you dig your fingers knuckle deep into the curling riches of his life, golden like a fairy tale, and you steal it, because gaping wounds don’t close.

⁴ (this is the real thing.)

⁵ this is not the real thing. for all you pride yourself on being a thief you’re kind of a shitty one.

⁶ he heals better than he hurts. you see it in the way his eyes burn bright instead of dark. he’s more seasoned to pain than you think. your bones aren’t thin enough to cut him marrow-deep. your needles and your pills stab and poison but they are temporary and fleeting. you’re disposable and so are your wounds. your rabid teeth give shallow bites. but there are other ways to be whole.

⁷ there are always other ways to be whole.

⁸ so, you go.

Contract Clause Pt 5

Is now up on A03, along with parts 1-4 :)

Over the last two weeks, she and Peeta had managed to fall into a semi-regular routine where they went out socially, went to the studio together to work albeit on separate projects, got caught on supposedly secret ‘dates’ out to places like Arena Beach and Seamer Valley, and had achieved a ceasefire where they agreed to put their past behind them, to be ‘friends’. Mostly, it was working - finally they’d gotten to a place where they could have a conversation with each other without being weird.

Except Katniss certainly felt weird because every time she looked at him, she felt 17 again. 17…but with a hell of a lot more of a dirtier mind.

New Artist: DEAN

Here’s a new artist  to check out: Singer-songwriter DEAN.

The Future R&B singer just released his latest single on July 19, “I’m Not Sorry,” which features Eric Bellinger, and previously released his first solo single “Here and Now,” featuring Motown singer Mila J, on June 3.

DEAN has also gotten attention from other American musicians and artists and has collaborated with Soulection Crew member Esta and singer-songwriter Anderson Paak, among others.

The 22-year-old singer got his start in music at age 16 and by age 18 had a publishing contract as a multi-platinum songwriter, selling over 1 million units.

Influenced by 90s rhythm and blues, R&B, trap music, and UK garage and indie rock, DEAN has created a hybrid sound that is uniquely his own. He said he is inspired by fashion, film and pop culture, with his personal idol being U.S. actor James Dean.

“Fashion is really important to making an artist iconic and it’s really important to the artistry. Just listening to the music has passed. It’s a visible culture and more than the music. Artists need something extra to become iconic,” he said.

He said he is also inspired by artists such as Childish Gambino, Cashmere Cat and Chance the Rapper, and hopes to someday collaborate with them and make a “memorable impact on music history.”

Check out his singles and stay tuned for more updates on DEAN.

Chocolate Belly Builder Shake

Had to design a gainer shake for a friend of mine and this is what I came up with:

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) of butter (unsalted) ~1620 calories
  • 1 cup Haagen-Dazs ice cream, chocolate ~ 377 calories
  • ½ cup of chocolate pudding mix ~ 300 calories
  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream ~ 1642 calories
  • 4 tablespoons of Nutella ~ 335 calories

For a grand total of 4275 calories in just over 1 liter 

PS: It can be kind of heavy so pace yourself :D

My friend keeps asking me for SO much advice since she found out she’s pregnant. I have to admit, it hurts. I feel like crying because I’m so jealous. I can’t even explain the way it feels. This just fucking sucks. EVERYONE around me can get pregnant so easily, yet we have been trying for so long and have gotten nowhere. I’ve been off birth control for over a year and a half! Every month we time it well, but still nothing. I give up. I’m so frustrated. I feel like I will never be a mother.
