What are thoughts about The Future is Wild?

Oh my stars, I love it. I love it so much, because it makes me want to shriek and laugh myself sick at the same time, and I love speculative evolution, no matter how silly. But let’s be real, it is very silly. 

What I love the most about it are the absolutely ridiculous common names they come up with. CARAKILLERS. THE LURKFISH. D E A T H G L E A N E R S

Nah, 11 months gestation time is only for smaller octopi species. The bigger, cold water species brood for as long as 53 months! This isn't a sprint, ladies and gentleman, it's a marathon. Pace yourself accordingly.


I remember back when I had reached that limit where you have enough followers to receive anon hate, people were telling me how I didn’t have to be so rude when answering anon hate, how I could be so much more responsible, and I had an anon repeatedly tell me the same thing; “you are not an angel”.

The truth is, I am merciless, I am relentless, I am unforgiving. Always have been, always will be. It’s my least flattering trait. I’m a shy, introverted, anxious and depressed girl but I sure know how to hold grudges. At some point I realized I didn’t owe these anons being kind and sweet and gentle as I was faced with their petty, mortal insults.

So this is in light of current debates and discussions from the last couple of days, everything from objectification to homophobia to petty, ignorant plebs. I’m done with being the mature part of the conversation. If you send your ignorant bullshit opinions to me, you’ve stirred the hornets nest and I owe you nothing. If you try to defend and excuse rapist behaviour, objectification, sexualization of minors, sexual harassment and tell victims to just deal with it;

I will show you no mercy, mortals. I will devour you whole.

BREAKING NEWS: For years, marine biologists have been trying to determine why various species of whales breach (propel their bodies out of the water and into the air). However, a recent study performed on humpback whales has proven that this high flying stunt is actually whales’ way of saying “screw you” when they no longer want to deal with what is going on under the sea. Whether its pesky siblings, annoying crabs, or ogling octopi, if the whale is not having it, they’ll throw themselves into the air.

Dear OBTumblr, how do I avoid OBSpoilers? Whenever it's Saturday, I have to avoid you guys. And it hurts me.

Dear Octopus Lemmy,

You pose a very good question. We don’t want you or any other octopuses (octopi?) in the fandom to spend Saturday avoiding us like a bad ex. As a courtesy to our fans, we tag all our spoilerific posts with #OBSpoilers. We suggest installing either Tumblr Savior or XKit and blocking the #OBSpoilers tag. With XKit you’ll have to install the “Blacklist” extension and add the word from there.

With the #OBSpoilers tag blocked, whenever a post pops up on your dash with that tag, the post will be hidden. You’ll have the option of clicking on it to read it if you’d like, and with XKit you can block the posts from appearing entirely. Both of those websites linked above have detailed instructions on how to install, but if you run into issues, ask #CloneClub for help! (It’s is a very smart and helpful fandom.)
