Well this is lucky. Apparently for this FossilFriday I’m starting with ammonites in stuff.
This is a look at one of our favourite ammonites, prior to the outer matrix being polished. These ‘Cannon ball’ nodules (rocks) are thought to be exclusive to the Yorkshire Coast, found nowhere else in the world. They rarely contain fossils, but when they do, they typically contain an Eleganticeras sp. ammonite. This fossil here is featured as found. When prepared, the outer pyrite coating of the nodule will be polished, to achieve a golden mirror effect.
So i stumbled upon these deleted blogs i found while looking through Google docs (the link of one below). For a moment i thought it was just another one of thoes phan ship blogs, but then i started reading it. i use to think dan and phill were just best friends that people shipped. Now i don’t even ship it… I believe it’s cannon.
If you want proof of phan, read this. Warning: If you don’t want to feel bad for invading their privacy, don’t read this.
I surmised all of the deleted blogs here. think Phan Is Cannon. Here’s why:
1 Phil is literally 28. twenty eight. nearly 30. I think that’s the age to be in a committed relationship with somebody, possibly even married. They still live with each other. Two grown men flirting with each other. I wouldn’t say that’s what you call a ‘platonic friendship’
2 There was a video made called the “valentines video” (pretty sure we all know about it). It was a video created Phil and uploaded to lessamaizingphill for Dan on valentines day saying he loves him and he is his valentine, proving that they are/were dating. It got un-privated by a YouTube glitch but they quickly deleted it. Dan and phill said that the video was just an April fools joke, but there is so much disproving that

There are several things that don’t seem to make sense about the Valentine’s Day Video being a prank, when you take a moment to think about it.
1. If it was a prank and they decided not to go through with it, why keep it up on Phil’s side channel for a year and a half?
2. Why delete the video after it had leaked, when adding a simple annotation saying that it was a joke would’ve saved a lot of drama and gossiping? phanlentine.tumblr.com 130/134
7/8/13 Valentine’s Day Video - Context and Commentary
3. Why did they initially go directly to the fans that found it and ask them to keep it quiet, rather than making a general announcement to all their fans that this was a prank?
4. Why so much zeal in hunting down the copies of it that still circulate?
5. For someone who usually cannot act his way out of a paper bag, how did Phil manage to pull off the “smitten and in love" look so well?
6. Why did so much work go into a simple prank video?
7. Why include references that no one would have understood at the time?
If we assume the Valentine’s Day video is real, why would they claim that it’s a prank? This is entirely guessing, but here are a few possibilities: 1. They were no longer a couple when the video leaked and didn’t want to dredgeup the past 2. They want their relationship to remain private because their fans tend to beinvasive (like, some people have set up entire blogs analyzing the Valentine’sDay video, I mean what?) 3. They worry about the drama it would cause if their relationship was public andthey broke up 4. They think it will affect their careers 5. They aren’t out to their families and/or friends 6. They feel that the video was so intimate they’d rather people think it’s fake 7. They’re caught in a “spiral of lies” and don’t want to own up to lying for solong.
I’m not aloud to give a link or a copy of the video, but the valentines video is still out there.
So if it wasn’t an April fools joke, it was a real valentines video from Phil to Dan. Don’t think that’s a sign of 'platonic friendship’ either.
3 Back in 2010, before Dailybooth.com was taken down, there were alot of photos proving phan, especially the comments between dan and phill (read in link below)
ALSO THESE YOUTUBE VIDEOS: (sorry for the playlist thing)
(X)the cactus thing (Phil literally confirms phan on camera)
The Materiel de 75mm Mle1897, the first piece of modern field artillery. Manufactured by France in quantity, it could fire a shell every four seconds without the need to reaim thanks to its hydraulic recoil system, a first at the time. It was greatly liked by the troops and was commonly known as the 75, or soixante-quinze in French.
In this four-minute video, Mel Robbins helps you find the cause of “every single problem or complaint in your life.” Motivation, she explains, is “complete garbage,” and you know you’re about to get carpet-bombed with the truth after she says, “It’s total bullshit, frankly. Are we allowed to swear on this show?” Is there a police chief in the audience who can rein in this loose cannon?!
Anyway, this video has over eight million views on Facebook, and gives precisely zero helpful advice. Robbins begins by saying, “At some point, we all bought into this lie that you’ve gotta feel ready in order to change.” On it’s face, this isn’t controversial. It’s true that we can’t always wait around until we feel excited to make a change. Nobody’s elated the day they quit smoking. But this vast oversimplification of the problem assumes everyone who struggles has the petulant mind of a child. “Sure, the doctor says I should start watching my cholesterol or I’ll die, but I’ll wait until I feel like it.” Most adult people have complex reasons for procrastinating, ranging from too much stress to clinical depression. This probably can’t be solved using the same line applied to a child who won’t make his bed or stop teabagging people on Call Of Duty. It’s as if human behavior is not easily reduced to a single simple bromide like “YOLO” or “JUST DO IT.”
According to Robbins, the fact that you’re a dumb baby who waits around until you feel like saving your marriage isn’t your fault. It’s your dumb baby brain: “The way that our brains are wired, and the fact about human beings, is that we’re not designed to do things that are uncomfortable or scary or difficult. Our brains are designed to protect us from those things.” Now, the brain is a pretty complex pile of meat. What are Mel Robbins’ qualifications for making such a sweeping statement about it? Well, she’s a CNN commentator, life coach, author, and “motivational speaker” – which, using Mel’s own definition, translates into “bullshit speaker.”
