How that “due date” talk should’ve gone

Dean: So when’s the nephilim gonna be born?

Sam: Around the middle of May. That’s when the worst stuff happens every year, like the time you, me, and Dad almost died in a demonic wreck.

Dean: Oh yeah…remember when all the demons got loose from Hell?

Sam: It was also the middle of May when Hellhounds dragged you off.

Dean: Hell’s so much less scary now, though, isn’t it?

Sam: It sure is. But not back when I inadvertently freed Lucifer in the middle of May.

Dean: We plopped you, and Lucifer and Michael into the cage in mid-May, too.

Sam: You and Cas got sucked into Purgatory around mid-May, too.

Dean: And you were gonna finish the Hell trials in mid-May, but I stopped ya.

Sam: Then all the angels fell because of that a-hole Metatron.

Dean: Right…right.. It wasn’t mid-May when I died and woke up a demon, though.

Sam: True, but it was just after, so I think it counts. Same thing with killing Death and unleashing the Darkness.

Dean: Should we count the Chuck and Amara thing? That was the end of May, as I recall.

Sam: Yeah, but the big fight was really the week before—so, mid-May, again.

Castiel: *suddenly appears* Hey, what month did I turn into a sack of Leviathan goo?

Sam: That was, May, too!

Dean: *meaningful pained glances*

anonymous asked:

Out of curiosity, if I see a crab walking on the beach, should I put it back into the ocean so that it doesn't die from heat?

Good question! Many species of crabs spend time both in the water and on shore – so if a crab is walking on shore it probably has a reason to be there. For the crab’s health, you should leave it where it is.

That goes for other wildlife, as well! From small seabirds to large whales, it’s always a good idea to give wildlife plenty of space so it can keep doing its thing. Many marine invertebrates and fish have a slimy coating that protects them from infection, and touching them can remove that coating. And getting too close to larger animals – like seals and whales – can disrupt their sleep cycles or make it harder for them to communicate with their families or find food.

We’re very glad you want to take care of marine animals, and thank you for checking in! You can learn more about safe ways (for you and the wildlife!) to view marine species here.

The perpetually-offended on tumblr are complaining about people drawing NSFW fan art of the Wendy’s mascot...

And I’m just sitting here thinking, “You must be new to the internet".

Like…it’s been this way for at least 15 years now.  You came here late.  This is something you’re just going to have to deal with, because complaining ain’t gonna do shit
