Early farmers helped domesticate dogs. Around 7,000 years ago, when we began farming wheat and millet, human diets were heavy on the starches, and we fed our dogs the same foods. In order to cope, the canine genome adapted by making extra copies of the gene that digests starch, which therefore made dogs more reliant on us for food. Source

things that happened in episode ten of yuri on ice:
  • viktor implies that yuri is his first real love and that his life has been improved so much with yuri in it
  • to the point now that the ocean doesn’t remind him of russia anymore, but hasetsu, his home w/yuri
  • viktor and yuri have a super cute sightseeing date trip together around barcelona, which is lovely
  • yuri literally buys a pair of gold engagement rings (can you believe???) that he can’t even afford outright for him and viktor as a ‘lucky charm’
  • (i’m just thinking, when yuri was asking viktor about his birthday and christmas, he was just looking for a good excuse to give him this gift he’s clearly been thinking abt for a while. i’m gonna-)
  • they go to a church together and lovingly slip the rings onto each other’s fingers, looking sappy and so happy
  • they walk off with their arms around each other’s shoulders for dinner
  • yuri doesn’t deny that the rings represent his ‘engagement’ to viktor and lowkey rolls with the idea that they’d get married after the gp final (again, can you believe????)
  • and then we get the ending credits (can i just say - what a concept! love the way they did it with all of the photos like the regular credits)…… drunk yuri is quite the mover and shaker. expert, sexy pole dancer. mad hip hop dancer.
  • and Most. Importantly. Of. All. he is the one who approaches viktor and dances with him, taking the lead and puttin on a whole load of charm
  • he literally GRINDS on viktor and throws his arm round his neck, begging him to be his coach
  • and viktor blushes and gasps bc, by god, the boy is smitten with this japanese twenty-something who completely flunked in competition
  • viktor!! the guy who’s meant to be the charming, suave, worldly, experienced one, the guy whom yuri has idolised his entire skating career, is the one who fell for yuri!
  • to reiterate: yuri seduced viktor a whole freaking year before the main narrative begins
  • and this just.. changes everything. viktor being so forward with yuri and wanting to be so physical was just him trying to subtly eek out the yuri he fell for at last year’s banquet. viktor choosing eros for yuri? literally just wanted to see him be sexy again. this whole damn time has been viktor falling more and more for yuri and trying to see his feelings reciprocated (which is happening lil by lil, like a slow-cooked roast)
  • throw me in the bin tbh because my sons are so good together and in love

you antis people say stydia is forced because they let lydia be the only one who keeps looking for stiles while scott wants to give up on him but you could easily go through an entire season with stiles being stuck on his girlfriend practically ignoring the whole pack and his friends or the fact that scott preferred to believe a psycho -whom he’d been told he actually was a psycho (by stiles!!1!!1)- rather than his best friend when he discovered stiles murdered someone for mere self defense
it’s two seasons that plot and coherence have been messed up, good morning princesses

‘No-one can know exactly why or how the young wolf and bear became friends. I think that perhaps they were both alone and they were young and a bit unsure of how to survive alone.’

'It seems to me that they feel safe being together, and so every evening met up for their dinner.’

'It’s very unusual to see a bear and a wolf getting on like this… It is nice to share rare events in the wild that you would never expect to see.’

'When I realised that no one had observed bears and wolves living near each other and becoming friends in Europe, I concentrated more and more on getting pictures to show what can happen in nature. Then I came across these two and knew that it made the perfect story.


Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

In the early 1900s, people loved collecting their family’s and friends’ signatures in autograph books. This evolved into collecting ghost signatures, which were made by signing a piece of paper with slow-drying ink and then quickly folding the sheet over to create a personalized inkblot. Source
