As someone who loves snakes, I really love Snake. Of course that also means I really love his snakes, and as someone who’s always been kind of a biology nerd, I thought to try my hand at classifying them. This was honestly really fun to do, and I hope some of you enjoy it!
…. says Keats.
Starting with my personal favorite, Emily is without a doubt a kingsnake, and if we want to go further she’s most likely a red milk snake. The distinctive pattern, bands of yellow and black on red, are actually a trademark of many kingsnake species. This clever disguise is used to mimic the venomous coral snake, keeping predators away.
Some fun kingsnake lore, these constrictors got their name because they hunt and consume other snakes when given the opportunity. They even hunt rattlesnakes, and have a high immunity to their venom.
Next we have Oscar, who is most definitely a red-tailed green ratsnake. Don’t be fooled by the name, their tails are typically not red, but a light brown. Oscar was also very easy to identify, the tail and the cute blue tongue really gave it away.
Interestingly, this species is known for having quite the attitude when kept in captivity, which I find translates well into Oscar’s cheeky personality. These snakes are also exceptional hunters, waiting in treetops to strike birds in mid-flight.
My second favorite noodle, Donne, is a tiny little thing called a blind snake. At first I thought he might be a worm snake, but the length and lack of eyes made me reconsider (blind snakes have very small rudimentary eyes that are barely visible, especially from a distance). These little cuties are harmless, and indeed small enough to sit on the human ear, at only 8 cm long (they can grow up to 16 cm, but not usually).
This dazzling noodle here is a corn snake, but not just a corn snake. Goethe is partially albino! If the striking fluorescent orange coloring and pretty pink eyes weren’t enough, he’s got a lovely pattern that certainly screams “creamsicle” to me.
Unlike Oscar, corn snakes make lovely pets with even temperaments, second only to ball pythons (though I guess I’m a little biased).
Unlike Goethe, Keats is completely albino… which made pinpointing him a little difficult. It also doesn’t help that he has no patterning whatsoever. So, going by the shape of his face and his total size, I’d say Keats is most likely an albino gopher snake.
This one was a little tricky, despite his pattern it was difficult to pinpoint what Wordsworth could possibly be. After mulling it over, I realized he’s a corn snake. Though the pattern might look a little different, it follows the same rule, and the head and pupil shape match.
A good rule of thumb, if the pupil is round and the head is small, it’s most likely a constrictor. Venomous snakes tend to have slit pupils and skinny necks (and big fat heads). This helps identifying to some degree.
Wilde is a big ol’ snake most people know, a boa constrictor. As far as they go, he’s certainly tiny, but his face and body shape are near identical (the pear shaped head is pretty indicative of large constrictors).
Despite being fairly small for a boa, Wilde is still a hefty snake, and would probably weigh upwards of 20-27 kg. That’s a lot to hold on your shoulders!
Unlike the rest of Snake’s snakes, Webster stands out in that he’s the only venomous one here. His pattern, bright yellow eyes, and slit pupils all indicate that he’s a copperhead. Another difference between venomous and non-venomous snakes, the fangs are only prominent in venomous snakes (non-venomous snakes don’t need to pump venom, so their teeth are smaller and hook-shaped). Despite being a pit viper, copperhead’s venom has a low potency, and the snake themselves are considered none aggressive.
Despite searching through almost every arc and skimming through the ovas, the only panels I’ve found of Bronte were of absolutely no help… I can’t even fathom what he might be. He is… a mystery.
The Cannibal House — This is the house of Armin Meiwes, a notorious German cannibal. In 2001 at the age of 39, Meiwes searched for a volunteer to be “slaughtered and consumed” on a website called The Cannibal Café. Bernd Brandes, a 43-year-old from Berlin, responded to the advertisement. The two met on March 9th, 2001, in Meiwes’ house in a small farming village near Rotenburg, Germany. After Brandes consumed sleeping pills and alcohol, Meiwes amputated Brandes’ penis with a knife. They attempted to eat the penis which was fried with spices and wine; however, this plan failed as it was too burned. Just after, Meiwes poured Brandes a bath (in the bathtub featured above), where he lay bleeding for three hours. Eventually, Brandes was dragged upstairs to the slaughter room where he was killed after Meiwes slit his throat. The body was hung on meat hooks and was later hacked into pieces. This entire gruesome ordeal was filmed on a two-hour long videotape.
Over the next 10 months, Meiwes consumed approximately 20 kgs (44 lbs) of Brandes’ flesh and stored body parts in his freezer. Eventually, Meiwes longed for another victim, and placed more advertisements on the internet. In December 2002, police arrested Meiwes in his home after receiving a phone call from a man who was concerned by the new ads. Meiwes was convicted of manslaughter in January 2004, and was sentenced to eight years in prison, as it was ruled that Brandes was a voluntary participant in the killing. In May 2006, this sentence was revised to life imprisonment for murder due to a retrial. Meiwes conducted several interviews in prison, and has stated that he believes there to be approximately 800 cannibals in Germany. He has since become a vegetarian and is reportedly feeling sorry for his crimes.

gemini: actual two-faced assholes who often say the opposite of what they mean… worst thing is they’re not even self-aware of it
cancer: if you go to their house they’ll make sure you leave with 20 kg of extra food and if you dare to say no they’ll flip their shit
leo: they don’t ever stop talking and they’ll tell you a story but continuously miss the point of their story so 45 minutes into the conversation you still don’t know brenda wants to borrow your pencil
virgo: either complete obsessed know-it-alls who are in denial of being one or extremely oblivious and stupid

Sisi is 6 years old, weights 20 kg and is around 55 cm tall. She is very friendly to people and most dogs, doesn’t like small dogs that bark and are agressive towards her though. She has a very high prey drive (which cost several rabbits and three roe deer their lives) and cannot be let off leash when in the woods. She enjoys running, swimming and sniffing, her nose is always on the ground. She is a very independent dog and usually only listens to one person.
chemical makeup of most humans: Water (35 L), Carbon (20 kg), Ammonia (4 L), Lime (1.5 kg), Phosphorous (800 g), Salt (250 g), Saltpeter(100 g), Sulfur (80 g), Fluorine (7.5 g), Iron (5 g), Silicon (3 g) and trace amounts of 15 other elements.
Another chemical got on my list: Aflatoxin B1, one of the most toxic chemicals that I’ve worked with.
Aflatoxin B1 is an aflatoxin produced by Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus. It is one of the most potent carcinogen known.
In animals, aflatoxin B1 has also been shown to be mutagenic, teratogenic, and to cause immunosuppression. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the worldwide maximum tolerated levels of aflatoxin B1 was reported to be in the range of 1–20 µg/kg in food, and 5–50 µg/kg in dietary cattle feed in 2003.
I did some calculations way back about how much Disney ducks should weigh based on both real ducks and human anatomy… Can’t remember the exact results but it was more than 20 pounds that is… not a lot.
I love tiny ducks tho. Especially whenever they sit on tables.
Not Anzu, who wakes up in Ryou’s empty room, and not Yugi, who is woken shortly thereafter by Anzu.
And must have been awake at least once since he went to sleep and talked to Yami in Yami’s Soul Room, because the Puzzle is on his bedside locker now:
headcanon: he rolled over in his sleep and hit his head on the Puzzle
Given that the puzzle seems to be about ~12 cm wide and not quite as tall, and the density of gold is 19.3 g/cm^3, the Puzzle, with an estimated volume approaching 500 cm^3 probably weighs around 9 kg (or around 20 lbs for those of you who still haven’t adopted the decimal system of revolutionary France). So (a) how is Yugi even carrying this around on his fucking neck the whole time and (b) I’m surprised he didn’t give himself a black eye trying to sleep with it in his bed in the first place.
(Also please note his hair spikes left spiky indents on his pillow!)
Anzu, to her credit, is genuinely worried about Bakura as a friend, like, he gets overlooked by the writers (and therefore the characters) but the Yugi-tachi really do care about him.
okay even though Yugi’s face here is low-key screaming “why should I care?” like he was really hoping if Anzu knocked on his door in the middle of the goddamn night it wouldn’t be for this shit again
But he gets dressed and OBVIOUSLY puts on his Duel Disk™ and they set off..
Meanwhile, in another room of people not getting enough sleep:
Look I know all eyes are on Mokuba here and how sweet it is that Mokuba would try to stay up with his brother and how even sweeter it is that he can’t but doesn’t leave and just falls asleep right there and how sweetest it is that Seto would pause what he was doing to take off his own coat to at least make him comfortable although it would be a lot sweeter if he just took him to fucking bed and went to fucking bed and you just know this happens like every four days jfc Seto sort your shit out but ANYWAY I just want you all to know that the blimp on-screen is 3-D and rotating and this suggests very strongly to me that Kaiba is monitoring the blimp actively while doing his Ra-research (Rasearch?) and honestly that means that the chances are really high that he knows Yamis Malik and Bakura are having a duel to the death on top of his airship and just doesn’t give one single shit about it
What does he give a shit about?
Not only is Kaiba’s Virus Combo unlikely to work, Kaiba finds out -somefuckinghow since there isn’t THAT much writing on the Ra card - that Ra has a second special ability, wherein
Which is a pretty fuckin good ability, tbh.
and idk maybe it’s not fair because I’ve seen this show before but I really feel like Someone should have even for a moment considered that this huge-ass deity of almost-unknowable power might have a special ability or two that, even if Someone wasn’t able to use, Someone could have at least prevented his opponent from using for a turn or two since SOMEONE knew full well that his opponent has a Resurrection of the Dead card in his hand right now… *coughBakurahasadeathwishcough*
!!! It was you who stopped!!! Yami Malik has been TRYING to continue this already but you were too busy bitching at your ~partner~!!!
yes, let’s just continue this already!
Yami Malik, in a move that I’m Sure could not have been predicted by even the wisest of sages, says that yes, the ultrapowerful avatar of the gods themselves has more than one Special Ability and that he will now use one that even Original Flavour Malik will be surprised by…
and honestly wtf Malik, how does your mental illness know more about your deck and your keystone Monster than you do?
Yami Malik admits that even if he uses Resurrection of the Dead on Ra, since Magic Cards only work on God Cards for a single turn before being, one presumes, immolated by the incandescent light and heat of the glory of the all-powerful, Ra will have a brief sojourn back in the world of the living
he says, looking into the camera like he’s on The Office
Malik tries not to panic, pointing out that even if Ra does return for a turn, what can it do? It’ll be on the field,
Bakura may or may not try not to panic, but if he’s trying not to panic, his face tells me he is succeeding about as well at that as he is at playing this card game.
Yami Malik’s face, meanwhile, tells me that the animators need to lay off the drugs
only you and some nerd downstairs with tiny belts on his arms
Yami Malik calms down enough to explain that using this ability, the player
as ATK to Ra. Usually this would be a meh to pretty great kind of deal, but thanks to how the duel has gone so far, with Yami Bakura losing most of his LP (mostly to himself), and Yami Malik not only losing none, but actively gaining more than the same amount again, it’s currently a FUCKING AMAZING deal.
Knowing what kind of absolute and utter geeks even the serial killers on the blimp are, Yugi and Anzu find the Yamis M and B in the very first place they look, the CARD GAME BLIMP DECK PUN INTENDED™
or rather, they find an ominous purple cloud, which Yami, quickly taking over from Yugi, points out is one of the key giveaways of a Dark Game, and suggests to Anzu,
“um bitch I don’t even HAVE a room your #duelistprivilege is showing”
Actually what she says is,
“That’s not fair! … I exclude everyone when there’s an emergency!”
This is an interesting line and I’m trying to think of places where Yami or Yugi would have specifically tried to keep Anzu back. I think Yami does try to put himself between danger and everyone/anyone else, and I think there’s a couple of occasions where the boys generally try to protect Anzu specifically, like in the souls-in-cards game against Yami Bakura. As a non-duelist (generally) and often the only girl, I bet Anzu does get frustrated!
Yami goes on to say that he now knows he’s supposed to obtain his lost memory and says,
… wait does that mean that up until this point you were cool with it??
fun facts - With a wingspan up to 3m. (10′) and weighing 5-9 kg (10-20 lbs) the American White Pelican is one of the largest birds in N. America. Manitoba is home to aprox. ½ the Canadian population, with many of them congregating at St. Andrews Lock & Dam just north of Winnipeg.
