anonymous asked:

Are there any birds that eat humans? Where can they be found, and by hat are some things I should know?

Well, not to rain on your parade, but the the first and most important thing you need to know on this subject is that there are no birds that primarily predate on humans. 

We’re very big, very heavy, are very relatively good at defending ourselves, and have a tendency to hang out in groups. Not only that, but we have the audacity to cover most of our vulnerable points with stuff, and we’ve built these extremely non-bird-friendly zones in which we like to live. How unconscionably rude of us, amirite? 

Golden eagles have been recorded taking down sika deer and other medium-sized ungulates, and African crowned eagles have been known to attack children, so there is no question that large birds of prey could kill a human. Carrion birds and scavengers would undoubtedly eat bits off of an already-dead human (sky burials are a good example), but, again, we are not the chosen prey of any extant bird species.

As for extinct birds, even early modern humans were likely preyed upon by strictly non-avian predators. There are Maori oral traditions of the Haast’s Eagle - the females of which could reach up to 15kg (compared to the largest wild birds of prey now at ~9kg) - that state that they “seized and carried off men, women, and children”. However, while they were large enough to hunt their chosen prey, the (also extinct) moa, carrying off adult humans was likely outside of their capabilities

So, tl;dr: humans are really annoying to eat. 0/10, would not recommend.

  • jake and amy: *interact*
  • me, externally: aww. you see, the jake/amy relationship is one of the most healthy relationship that's being portrayed on television right now. there's never any unnecessary drama and any issues that might arise are often quickly ironed out by communicating with each other. i love this relationship because it inspires me to be better- it doesn't bring out the worst in me, the screechy fangirl i used to be. i'm not crazy anymore. it doesn't mean i love them less, if anything, i love them more. they have a respectful and realistic relationship that doesn't require me to constantly scream for.
  • me, internally: *through my tears* LOOK AT HER, JACOB. LOOK AT YOUR FUTURE WIFE!!! listen to anything and everything she says and offer her the world because you will one day put a ring around that finger and she will bear your children and you'll take the kids to school and wave them goodbye JUST SAY YOU WON'T LET GOO O

The Japanese voice work for RWBY is so good. It makes me happy that they’re getting such solid performances over there considering how big the show has gotten in Japan

Imagine:

During Edward’s first visit to Central after he and Winry announce their engagement, he makes an offhanded comment about not knowing how to dance. And Roy overhears him and offers to teach him. Edward is skeptical, but after Roy insists that Winry will appreciate it, he begrudgingly caves. But, the one caveat Roy has is that it has to be after hours, preferably an hour or so after everyone goes home.

Edward thinks to question it, but instead figures that it’s Mustang who sometimes appears to have no rhyme or reason for how he does things until the last moment, he’ll just suck it up and go along with it.

And if worse comes to worse and Mustang disappoints him (what he’s banking on, in fact), he’ll badger him until he gets a drink for having to put up with him.

So he goes to Central Command around 7pm and finds Roy… and Riza. The perplexed expression on his face is enough for Roy to right away explain that it’s better to learn from watching first before trying, and that the Lieutenant graciously offered to help him. And that’s when Edward realizes why he had to meet him so late that night.

Edward again is skeptical because the Lieutenant never seemed to be the type to dance, but for her sake and Winry’s, he would go through with it.

Roy moves the needle to the record that’s on the phonograph he stole from Fuery’s supply room to start the music, gets into position with Riza

And they absolutely kill it.

hi listen not to be rude but you're being rude just because you don't like the new band or whatever doesn't mean go and try to hate no one told you to listen to them or like them so don't make a hateful post about it because you're only being childish and you should be better than that and i'm not saying suport them but i am saying grow up and deal with it you're not gonna like everything in life and you don't have to but don't post hateful stuff and be ignorant and rude that's just stupid

Omfg you’re making me laugh so hard right now… 

Hunny, I’ve been trying to deal with the fact that white people are claiming or using things from Asian people all my life now. And the fact that now there is goddamn white people trying to make it into the kpop industry astonishes me. We don’t need them, not now, not yet. 

I had to watch white people portray Asian roles in movies and shows all my life!! AND IT’S STILL HAPPENING. I had to watch Asians be a background role and even be portrayed as nerdy or had to teach a white male karate. AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN AN ASIAN PERSON MAKE IT HUGE IN AMERICA’S MUSIC INDUSTRY.

My point is, we don’t need them. They’re gonna flop anyways.

Oh and “deal with it you’re not gonna like everything in life” … yeah ok, then YOU deal with that fact that I don’t like this situation either.

anonymous asked:

if you're not completely over the hogwarts sorting discussion yet- how would you sort the rest of the wolf 359 crew??? (i started listening because of you and now i'm hopelessly hooked)

eiffel—100% beautiful emotive gryffindor, all his decisions can be traced back to what he feels is right, and his intuition is the guiding force of the show. his moral compass is so bright and so strong aliens noticed.

minkowski—classic hufflepuff, from anal-retentive start to protective mama-bear finish. the crew is her crew, and she is going to get them home. (most really military types are hufflepuffs; a structured community that demands your loyalty and hard work is a siren song.)

hera—hard to sort an AI, but I think I would put her in slytherin. of the original crew, she’s the one with the most ambition, a drive to prove herself worthy of the mission she’s been given, and she’s most offended (and vindictive) when others hurt/slight her. she’s extended that protective selfishness a little to doug and the crew, but mostly she makes decisions for herself.

hilbert—as I said, he’s an excellent example of a dark ravenclaw, all his decisions are based on furthering his knowledge and understanding of the world (his research!) even to the point where it hurts people. plus, he is deeply confused and irritated when others don’t see the absolute truth in what he’s saying.

lovelace—look @ that slytherin go. she starts out just wanting to protect herself, further her own goals by any means necessary—then slowly that expands to the rest of the hephaestus crew, to the point where she’s viciously clannish and protective of all of them, instead of just herself.

kepler—my first inclination is to say dark gryffindor, because it would make sense, as a foil for eiffel and lovelace, and as a believer in the goddard Mission. but I could also be convinced of slytherin, given how protective he is of his own ego and importance, a generous helping of ruthlessness.

jacobi & maxwell—also slytherins. will do what they have to for each other and their fucked up boss, for no other reason than because he is Theirs. (jacobi joins goddard to prove himself and his abilities. maxwell joins for the opportunity to play with goddard’s toys and work on the cutting edge of AI research. they’re both largely self-driven choices.)

How to identify a Heathers song

Check for one or more of the following:

— There are at least four key changes, usually into really fucking weird minor keys (like SErIOusLy w hat the f UCK learning them on piano is a bitch?)
— it makes you want to cry for some reason (sadness, anger, joy, whatever LET THE WATERWORKS COMMENCE)
— you can’t play it around your parents because swear words are swear words no matter how gorgeous the harmonies (holy SHIT holy SHIT holy SHIT holy SHIT holy SHIIIIIIIIIIIT)

If one or more of these apply, you are listening to Heathers song. Go get a slushie.

So here I am trying to study for my anatomy exam and all I can think about is 

  • Lucifer sitting at the piano
  • Lucifer playing the piano with ALL HIS HEART for the WOMAN HE LOVES
  • Lucifer singing Eternal Flame. FOR CHLOE.
  • Chloe watching Lucifer play the piano
  • Chloe listening to the lyrics he is singing
  • Chloe tearing up a bit because she knows the song is about them, more specifically the way Lucifer feels about her
  • Chloe smiling because she just can’t help herself because SHE LOVES HIM and she knows she can’t stay mad at him

My heart is so full right now. I’m smiling just thinking about this scene. It’s going to be beautiful.

Mama, idk what to do. My parents don't listen to me, they're always favoring other people, and tbh if I have to do therapy right now it's because of them. They have the right to get mad at whatever and tell me to shut up and whatnot, but they won't hear when I'm upset and wanna talk. It all has such deep roots and they refuse to face it. I'm considering spending some days at a friend's without warning just for my sake

That sounds like a good idea but remember that taking a child in without the parents knowing can be a felony in some places, so take care. Also Maybe you should consider family therapy then if nothing works. Parents can be disgustingly stubborn sometimes, because they often think they’re in the right because they’re older. I wish you all the best and please stay strong! I love you and if you need anything I’m here

anonymous asked:

Did you notice in 7x16 after they find Michonne, Rick kneels down and caresses her face?? I didn't notice the hand at first because I was too busy staring at Rick's concerned expression but it's there and I'm so deep in my feelings right now I miss them so damn much😭😭 and that caress is so gentle too like I know this is free but I want my money back I shouldn't be feeling this much. Can we just get a spin-off show of the Grimes Family please

I actually didn’t notice this. 👀 But listen. A Grimes Family spinoff is literally all I want out of life. The more I think about this show, the more I realize that is the only thing I’m watching for. I mean, yeah, I like Maggie and Aaron and Gabriel and Jesus, but without Sasha and especially Glenn, the rest of Team Family are just kinda there. Give me Richonne in like a Full House setting and I’d be so good.

      OKAY so this panel, you see this right here is why I believe there is something about Temari that Gaara has always liked versus Kankuro, and I never could figure out what it was until I passed this as I'm going through iconning and it hit me, she reminds him of their mother. Now, this pure speculation but with the standoff against Kankuro and the threat to kill them if they got in his way, he listens albeit begrudgingly.

       INSTINCTIVELY he listened to her because of this and he never understood why. These days when he thinks about it, he can understand why somewhat, but the connection to his sister always being there despite him knowing is still a weird concept to him.

“Beating up a kind man is violence, but beating up a bad guy.. that’s justice.”

“Now, as I look at my family’s faces, I wonder if I’ll see them again. When you become a police officer, sometimes there are criminals like this, that you will risk your life to capture, because he’s not the usual bastard out there. Right now, I see in my mind my son and my wife’s faces. I know I might not see them again… If we die, who will protect our families? Who will protect them?”

anonymous asked:

i remember seeing fall out boy in concert after loving them my whole (albeit relatively short) life and even though we were in the nosebleeds, before it even started i was crying and listening to patrick, alone, on the stage with a piano singing disloyal order of water buffaloes with just the piano and his voice and everyone waving lighters, i felt something grow lighter in my heart and i didn't shake it for weeks. it was magical.

That sounds beautiful oh my god…. I saw them in concert but sadly they didn’t play that song. :( :( They were still incredible live, though… LIKE SO GOOD.

a few more Akaoi HCs

my reasoning behind these is still ‘why not’

~ I have a million ideas about how they could meet but I like to think about them becoming roommates when Akaashi starts college and just not getting along at all in the beginning, despite their friend circle (namely Bokuto, Kuroo, and everyone that comes with it) being pretty much identical. Akaashi just wouldn’t tolerate Oik’s bullshit at all and the latter thought of Akaashi as kind of a killjoy. That all changed once they got to know each other better and realized just how wrong they were about each other though. They ended up as good friends before they started falling in love.
~ now that they’re much closer, they understand each other pretty much without words. They’re both really perceptive, and they let their guard down around each other very easily.
~ they watch a lot of space documentaries together! They also like to visit the planetarium.
~ Akaashi is a blanket hogger par excellence. Oikawa is just cold. Poor guy.
~ touch either of them without consent and you will get fucked up
~ look, Akaashi has tried liking Ushiwaka, but it’s really hard when most of what he knows about him is via Oikawa, so now he harbours kind of a second-hand grudge …
~ Oikawa’s family absolutely loves Akaashi. It’s hard not to, really, but his sister’s taking it to the next level. (”I’m gonna plan the wedding!” - “IT’S BEEN THREE MONTHS GIVE US TIME”)
~ Takeru, too, loves Akaashi, mostly beause he now knows where to get blackmail material.
~ the first time they uploaded a selfie to Instagram they basically broke the internet. I imagine Oikawa to be really popular because like. Look at him. Tell me he wouldn’t be. So it’d be kind of a big deal. (completely unrelated, but my headcanon social media alias for him is definitely toorurun)
~ one time at a carnival Oikawa really wanted an alien plush so Akaashi went and pretty much destroyed the shooting gallery. Turns out he has scary precision. He could probably kill a man. That day, Oikawa made a mental note to never get on his bad side.
~ Akaashi tries to watch everything Oikawa’s currently hyping, even if he doesn’t like it at all. The amount of terrible soap operas he has sat through just to know what Oikawa was crying about is ridiculous. It’s worth it though, because in the end he gets to see his boyfriend happy.
~ this works vice-versa too - Akaashi doesnt get nearly as hyped up about things as Oikawa does, but i’s obvious when he’s excited about something. Most of the time Oikawa has no idea what he’s talking about (it’s mostly school-related stuff, I imagine Akaashi as like a photography major so there’s lots of stuff Tooru’s never even heard about, who knew taking photos could be so damn technical), but listens anyways because damn, he’s cute when he’s excited.

  • You: Awww, Vilde and Magnus are so cute together! I ship them!
  • Me, an intellectual: I love Vilde Hellerud Lien, my beautiful lesbian princess.
So this happened in business class today
  • Girl in my class: You're white you shouldn't be listening to kpop
  • Me: *stares at them for a good 45 seconds, trying to stay calm* are you fucking serious? So because I'm white I can't enjoy music? Sure I don't know what they're saying but that's what translations are for, okay? Telling someone they can't enjoy something because of their race, is like telling someone who they can and can't be with. Would you tell a black person they can't listen to country music or a mexican they can't listen to pop? No you wouldn't because it's racist. and what you're telling me right now is racist and also considered bullying.
  • Other Girl: Do you watch kdramas?
  • Me: Yes.
  • Girl #1: Well if you watch kdramas and listen to kpop then why don't you move to South Korea?
  • Me: Just because I listen to kpop and watch kdramas doesn't mean I want to move there? If I told you, you can't listen to rap because you're white you'd get offended. Exactly what's happening to me, you may think you're doing nothing wrong but you're seriously acting as dumb as a rock, now please leave me alone unless you have common sense coming out of your mouth.
