1/13/17 @coldsunnyday The ducks aren’t actually green. They’re untrustworthy creatures, and they’re lying about what color they are. Don’t listen to them.

It’s an optical illusion called “structural color.” Their feathers are black. The fluffy side bits of the feathers (barbs) are also black. The little hooks that keep the barbs all lined up (barbules) are also black. There are microscopic little ridges (tubules) on the barbules that are also black. But the tubules are exactly the same size as a wavelength of green light, so instead of absorbing green light the way a black object should, they reflect it and the ducks look green. 

If you put one of the ducks under a good enough microscope, you’d see that no individual part of it was actually green in any way.

Avian biology generally can’t produce blue or green pigments. Birds that look blue or green are lying about it. Don’t trust them.

Except for turacos. They’re actually green, and very pleased with themselves about it. Look at this guy, here’s a bird you can trust:

Here are some excerpts from my Law of Attraction Planner I thought people would find helpful to copy down and fill out. I would do this every year, as you, your situation, and your goals change.

AWARENESS & SELF DISCOVERY

1. What do I want to experience in life if time and money were not an issue?

2. How do I want to grow?

3. What do I want to contribute to this world?

4. Who am I? Why am I here?

5. Where am I going? How do I want to be remembered when I am gone?

6. If I achieve all of my life’s goals, how would I feel? How can I feel that along this way?

7. What is most important in my life? What do I value the most? What am I most passionate about? 

8. What brings me the most joy & sense of peace in my life?

9. What does a successful life look like for me?

10. What do others admire in me? What unique gift do I want to share with the world?

11. What are my top 10 achievements in life?

GOAL SETTING

1. Choose 50 goals to achieve in all areas of your life.

2. Choose 5 top goals to achieve this year, next year, until you have 5 years of 5 goals/year. Set rewards for each goal.

Autism feel when:

Notices something about myself for the first time, “Oh neat.”

The following weeks every time I do that thing, “Yup, that’s true, I guess I’m unable to not notice this every single time now.”

I’m probably just stupid, to be honest.
But let’s be real, trying on and actually finding a purchasable item is an impossible task.

I just want pretty things to wear why it gotta be so hard
