Absolutely, pick-your-teeth-up-off-the-floor, mouth-gaped, didn’t-see-that-coming scene happens in the first episode of 7B. It’s right up top. It happens pretty fresh in the first episode… and it is an exciting ride.

cute animal facts to cheer you up:
  • cats “headbutt” people because they make them feel safe, or they trust them.
  • when puppies play fight, boy puppies will often let girl puppies win.
  • the grizzly bear’s name comes from the word “grizzled” which means ‘streaked with gray hair’.
  • wombat poo is cube-shaped to stop it from rolling away…
  • dogs will sneeze to tell other dogs that they’re playing, so when they’re playing rough it doesn’t turn into a fight.
  • gray squirrels bury nuts all over the place, and often forget them, growing new trees. this makes them more ecologically friendly than red squirrels, who store nuts in piles on the ground which don’t take root.
  • infant pygmy marmosets babble to develop their language skills, similarly to the way human babies babble.
  • two-toed sloths cannot shiver to stay warm like other mammals due to their low metabolic rates and little muscle tissue.
  • yawning is infectious because it supplies a method for the most sleepy to forcefully communicate their need for rest and thus ensures that the group rests/sleeps together.
  • baby dolphins have spines on the sides of their tongue. the spines zip up to make a straw so that they can drink the mother’s milk without getting salt water in it.
  • when a rabbit is happy it will sometimes jump in the air twist it’s body. this is called a binky.
  • the red panda uses its long bushy tail not only for balance, but also as a blanket during chilly winter nights.
  • baby japanese macaques make snowballs. they do not use them for any survival purposes, they just like to have fun.
  • manatee calves nurse underwater from teats under their mothers flippers.
  • baby elephants will suck their own trunks for comfort.

I’m sure that doesn’t matter, I’m sure it doesn’t matter at all.

Each Pluto generation is lacking in a trait that will be highlighted in the next Pluto generation. That highlighted trait in the next trait will also lack in its own way and a new generation will be created. This shows that the transformation and change that Pluto represents is always dynamic.

Those with Pluto in Cancer focused on the family as a stable unit, failing to realize the individual talents each family member uniquely had. Due to this, those with Pluto in Leo had a strong focus on expressing yourself and having fun. However, they failed to realize that life is not just fun, but also work, which is highlighted in the Pluto in Virgo generation. The Pluto in Virgo generation was skilled in utilizing creativity into productivity, but they did not realize the beauty of taking a well needed break to enjoy the beauty of life. Those with Pluto in Libra enjoyed the beauty of life and socialized to their heart’s content, only to feel an unsettling shallowness. This shallowness is addressed when the Pluto in Scorpio generation sought to find the darker, uglier, yet intimate side of life. However, they drowned in the darkness of it all, and the Pluto in Sagittarius generation found light in the darkest of corners. Those with Pluto in Sagittarius are optimistic, but also idealistic, for they do not know their limits for they did not truly see reality. The Pluto in Capricorn generation however, does know their limits, and uses this knowledge to make practical establishments. However, due to the the confinement and restrictions of their establishments, the upcoming Pluto in Aquarius generation will break these establishments down to start something new and innovative.

Deported gay Afghans told to ‘pretend to be straight’
New Home Office rules would send gay asylum seekers back to Afghanistan, where homosexuality is illegal
By Emma Graham-Harrison

Gay Afghans can be deported to their home country, where homosexuality is illegal and “wholly taboo” and they must pretend to be straight, under new British government guidelines for handling asylum applications.

The new guidance for a country where not a single citizen lives an openly gay life has been denounced by human rights groups as a violation of international law, and criticised by the Home Office’s own Afghanistan unit.

“The Home Office’s approach seems to be to tell asylum seekers, ‘Pretend you’re straight, move to Kabul and best of luck,’” said Heather Barr, a senior researcher at Human Rights Watch. “Living a life where you are forced to lie every day about a key part of your identity, and live in constant fear of being found out and harassed, prosecuted or attacked, is exactly the kind of persecution asylum laws are supposed to prevent.”

The document, dated last month, clearly lays out the multiple risks to LGBT Afghans from their own families, from Afghan laws, and from Taliban insurgents who consider homosexuality a crime punishable by death.

‘You’re just trying to get it as big as possible’: Capitals do photo day right
Justin Williams and Andre Burakovsky sported matching poofy 'dos.
By https://www.facebook.com/scott.s.allen

“I used the hair dryer a little to blow it up and then it was just kind of sitting there by itself,” Burakovsky said of his ‘fro, which rivaled the height of Williams’s ‘do. “You’re just trying to get it as big as possible. When I got it kind of big, I thought, ‘All right this is pretty good.’ It looked stupid.”

Like Jayson Werth and Bryce Harper on Nationals photo day at spring training, Williams and Burakovsky looked a little like Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly’s characters in the movie “Step Brothers.” That wasn’t a coincidence.

“There’s something in that for sure,” Williams said when asked if the duo’s look was inspired by the movie. “Burky’s nickname, sometimes it’s Dale. So, um … there’s a little something to that, yeah.”

Burakovsky was asked if he plans to keep his poofy look.

“No, absolutely not,” the 22-year-old replied.

“His hair looks like that every day, so I didn’t notice much difference,” joked Capitals forward Tom Wilson…

…wait, sometimes Andre gets called Dale?

We should not underestimate how many Trump supporters held views that were sexist, racist, xenophobic and Islamophobic, and were thrilled to feel that he had given them permission to say so. It’s an old trick: the powerful encourage the less powerful to vent their rage against those who might have been their allies, and to delude themselves into thinking that they have been liberated. It costs the powerful nothing; it pays frightful dividends.

“It’s the way people think of my family in this town. It’s the way they think of me. Just one of those lowlife Chambers-kids.” — Stand By Me (1986)

In a particularly heart-wrenching scene, Phoenix sits at the trunk of a tree, the campfire flickering in the foreground, and has a breakdown because he thinks he’s worthless. It was a tough one to get right. Reiner asked the actor to think of a time when an adult had let him down. “When someone that you really looked up to, and really loved, wasn’t there for you,” he said. The next take, he got it. Reiner never did find out what Phoenix was thinking about. “He kept crying after that scene and I had to go give him a hug. It is a hard scene to play and then snap out of.” (x)

Hair removal, at its core, is a form of gendered social control. It’s not a coincidence that the pressure for women to modify their body hair has risen in tandem with their liberties, Herzig argues. She writes that the effect of this hairlessness norm is to “produce feelings of inadequacy and vulnerability, the sense that women’s bodies are problematic the way they naturally are.”
