crazy shark

400-year-old Greenland shark is the oldest vertebrate animal

She was born during the reign of James I, was a youngster when René Descartes set out his rules of thought and the great fire of London raged, saw out her adolescent years as George II ascended the throne, reached adulthood around the time that the American revolution kicked off, and lived through two world wars. Living to an estimated age of nearly 400 years, a female Greenland shark has set a new record for longevity, scientists have revealed.

And you’ll never guess how old she has to be before reaching sexual maturity…

Are you gonna be mine?
My wave, my shark, my demon in the dark
The blue tide pulling me under
Or are you my soul, my heart, pull everything apart?

Myan/Team Crazy Mad Aesthetic post based on this lovely FAHC Mermaid AU by @a-simple-note ; I love this AU to bits (especially my gay sharks) and wanted to make something fun for it :)

I finally brought this shark plushie from Ikea back home! And I’m thrilled to announce that this sharkie was named Puck Shield in honour of @airplanesandcookies fic “Bitty Secretly Knows Everything About Football” (sorry I’m on my phone now and will provide the URL later). Go Puck Shield Go!

Austin, Connor and Trevor Bartz, three brothers living in New Brighton, Minnesota, love to create snow sculptures in their front yard every winter. They created a detailed 12-foot-tall sea turtle!
The boys begin their work by piling up snow into a crude pile, which they then carefully sculpt into their desired form over the course of several weeks. This year’s sea turtle sculpture took them 300 hours!
They’ve been assembling epic snow sculptures for the past 4 years

What Lies Within

What is it behind the sharp, pointed edges and those cracks on your armour, Uthvir? The most important question is not what you are. It is who you are…

Uthvir and Squishy/Desire are @feynites​‘ characters from the Looking Glass. My early St Valentine’s gift for Fey & all Uthvir’s fans. A small prayer for happiness, although whatever will happen, needs to happen… :)
