This is a real dinosaur foot.
It still amazes me that these things were REAL and that we’re finding things like this. Skeletons are one thing but this foot is freaking wild.
tHIS IS REALLY COOL OK
It died giving the finger.
There are two kinds of people on Tumblr.
Except it’s not a dinosaur foot, it’s an Upland Moa foot. [x]
13 Photos From Taiwan’s First Same-Sex Buddhist Marriage
Huang Mei-yu and Yu Ya-ting wed Saturday in a traditional Buddhist ceremony. Their union still isn’t recognized by the Taiwanese government, though support for gay marriage is mounting across Asia.

Buddhist Master Shih Chao-hwei performed the ceremony, giving the women his full support: “I am certain you will lead a life of happiness together, especially after you have overcome so much difficulty and societal discrimination,” he said. “You have blessings not only from the Buddha, but also from those whom you may or may not know who are in attendance.”

Luckily, under the Affordable Care Act, treatment for chlamydia will be cheaper. And if there’s a nearby Planned Parenthood, people with chlamydia can get treated at little to no cost. That is, if Republicans stop defending the organization willy-nilly because maybe babies.
And it’s obvious Rep. Steve Stockman is a little confused. Most cases of chlamydia are contracted by people engaging in an activity they enjoy — having some kind of sexual contact. They typically have engaged in unsafe sex, though you can still can precautions and get an STI.
Signing up for the Affordable Care Act, last I knew, wasn’t anything like sex. Yes, it’s boring, it takes awhile, and you just sort of sit there until you’re done.
Wait… Maybe Rep. Stockman is just having really terrible sex. Anyhow….
Signing up for the Affordable Care Act is something that people do once, and it is the law. Having sex is something people usually do more than once and there’s no law saying you have to have sex. But if you do, and get an STI or pregnant, the ACA will provide treatment or prenatal care. Planned Parenthood too — they provide counseling on all options with unintended pregnancy.
Finally, he also misunderstood the idea of “popular” — unless he knows of people personally who do the sexy times on the regular thinking, “Ooh, I hope this is the one who gives me chlamydia!”
Pygmy Hippo Calf Learns to Swim at Edinburgh Zoo
A baby Hippo isn’t born knowing how to swim: the little ones have to learn from mom. Adana the Pygmy Hippo calf, born at Edinburgh Zoo on October 27, is getting more than just get feet wet as she splashes around with mom Ellen in their indoor pool! An endangered species, there are likely fewer than 3,000 Pygmy Hippos left in West Africa, and so the birth of a healthy newborn is great news for the European Breeding Program, which seeks to conserve the species through captive breeding.

Why are we so ashamed of periods? … Women’s bodies are incredibly sexualized in our media and in our every day experiences. So much so that even mentioning menstruation sends a lot of people into kindergarten levels of EW. And why? Because for a moment, you have broken the spell. And suddenly, you are no longer a magical mannequin unicorn fairy existing purely for the sexual fantasy of other people. Suddenly, you’re a human being! (X)
I feel that the only way to stop those possessed by the spirits of the book is through the act of…bodily dismemberment.
