400-year-old Greenland shark is the oldest vertebrate animal
She was born during the reign of James I, was a youngster when René Descartes set out his rules of thought and the great fire of London raged, saw out her adolescent years as George II ascended the throne, reached adulthood around the time that the American revolution kicked off, and lived through two world wars. Living to an estimated age of nearly 400 years, a female Greenland shark has set a new record for longevity, scientists have revealed.
And you’ll never guess how old she has to be before reaching sexual maturity…
I want literally EVERYONE coming out to Maggie. James tells her about him being the guardian, Winn comes out about something, Kara comes out to her about being supergirl or about who she likes, J'onn talking to her about M'gann, and Maggie just being like “gUYS IM NOT A THERAPIST IM JUST A LESBIAN THERE IS NO CORRELATION”
the savagest person to have ever set foot on this planet (he just literally wrote a response to sherlock critics in sonet form to the guardian and that’s honestly the coolest thing anyone has ever done)
If world leaders were hipsters... they might look a like this
At least in the eyes of Israeli illustrator Amit Shimoni, who reimagined both current and former leaders as their most hipster selves and gave them alternative biographies in a series of portraits for a book titled ‘The Hipstory postcard set’ published by Laurence King.
