this giant baby

Okay like three of my friends now have told me “I didn’t know the guy on the cover of their books was a man. I thought he was a giant baby”

Is this like? A common thing with people who haven’t read the books?

Edit because someone pointed out that people are also surprised by the fact that he’s the principal—I’ve been hearing that too!! And one of my friends said “I thought captain underpants was a fellow student” can you imagine

ok there’s a lot going on here but look at how big that bunny is?????

Star Trek Character Ages

Over the past few days my sister and I have been doing very important research; we looked up the ages of all of the Star Trek characters. Quite possibly one of the most nerdy things I have spent my time doing, but, the results are quite interesting in some cases. So here you go tumblr.

*note: all of these ages were calculated using either birth years found on memory alpha or memory beta, so they may not be 100% correct, but I tried to be as accurate as possible.*

Here’s your Friday panda cub update from Jennifer A.! #ZAPandas #OnlyZooATL

The building has been extra quiet with two fewer pandas. Even the newest twins have been just quietly making it through their day, eating and sleeping, and eating and sleeping. They are beginning to show a bit more personality and interaction both with Lun Lun and with us. We are continuing to get regular body temperatures for each girl in addition to stimulating them to eliminate urine and feces. During these times when we have to handle the cubs, we are beginning to see quite sassy little personalities. Both cubs are beginning to try to swat the thermometer away when we put it under their little arms. It’s pretty cute now, but it won’t be soon when they get a bit stronger.

You know what needs to be talked about more?

Fuckin dragon trainer Newt.

Newt working with the biggest dragons there are and giving them names like Harold, Tom and Sally.

Newt who becomes LEGENDARY among later dragon trainers. Using positive reinforcement, bonding with and getting to know them, having the healthiest and best trained dragons on the front and focusing on his scaly babies to try and forget what they’re being used for.

Even years later Charlie Weasley is telling stories about it like “no you don’t get it they say he slept in the dragon caves and the dragons LET HIM. He bonded with them in a way no one knows how to replicate!!”

A picture of Newt Scamander. With his hair cut short and his eyes shadowed and dark from lack of sleep, still grinning ear to ear with three massive dragons nearly bowling him over with affectionate headbutts.

Just.
