    here’s a picture of a baby cedar waxwing begging for food from a robin. neither of these species are nest parasites, so it’s not possible the cedar waxwing was ‘adopted’. this is essentially the bird version of tapping a random person on the shoulder at the grocery store and going “MOM”


    I love that the robin’s body language is basically WHAT THE FUCK WHOSE KID IS THIS

    Robin is bathing which make’s it even funnier. More like the equivalent of a strange kid barging in while you’re taking a shower and demanding you make them mac n cheese right now

    Problems for a villain who’s fallen in love with the hero

    • How to make a plot villainous enough to attract they attention but tame enough they won’t get hurt
    • Would calling their cell for a random chat because like villain-creepy or stalker-creepy? Or both?
    • Okay so when they wink at me after a great comeback, is that just their charismatic arrogance or do they maybe like me back?
    • My newest villain monologue was gonna include this bit about my rough childhood but idk that feels like a fifth date fight subject
    • Should I update my outfit again? I think they like my new boots but the cape didn’t get the reaction I was hoping for

    6. their mentor just died (of natural causes don’t look at me like that). If I went to the funeral out of costume would they recognize me?

    7. It’s our one year anniversary fuck how does one celebrate an anniversary of rivalry and one-sided devotion

    8. Where’s your enemy when you just watched a sad movie and need a hug

    9. It’s mid january what the shit are they doing out here without a scarf and gloves and would it be weird if I offered them mine

    10. I will kill one person for every ten minutes you’re late - hope you can make it! Love, Devoted to you, Yours forever, - me

    11. They look tired maybe we should take a break. Yeah I’ll just turn around, you haven’t seen the last of me, bla bla bla…. Feel better

    @shadow-schemer you get it 😂

    Tama is boss


    Sad update everyone, Tama recently passed away… An estimated 3,000 people, including railway officials, attended Tama the cat’s funeral on Sunday, days after she died of heart failure aged <>16. [x]

    For those who haven’t read articles about it, the local shrine elevated her to a god. She’s now the Eternal Stationmaster and patron god of the station.


    Now I’m crying thanks

    and a new cat was hired right?

    yep! her name is Nitama (essentially ”second tama” or “tama II”) and she served under Tama as an apprentice before being appointed her deputy

    she works very hard

    Everytime this crosses my dash, I reblog. It is the law.


    I’m crying at 11pm over train cats

    Nitama, already now a mature cat (born 2010), has a protege named Yontama (fourth Tama, b. 2016).  There is no information available for either the physical befellment or tragic self-disgrace which has removed Santama from contention.


    ^Nitama majestic, and below with Yontama




    a legacy

    okay but actually what happened to santama (or sun-tama-tama, which is her name because it’s a pun on santama) was that she was basically sent to train for the position in okayama and they liked her so much they refused to send her back

    “Sun-tama-tama” (a pun off of “Santama”, lit. “third Tama”) was a calico cat sent for training in Okayama. Sun-tama-tama was considered as a candidate for Tama’s successor, but the Okayama Public Relations representative who had been caring for Sun-tama-tama refused to give the cat up writing, “I will not let go of this child, she will stay in Okayama.” [25]

    As of September 2018, Sun-tama-tama is working as the stationmaster in Naka-ku, Okayama and appears occasionally on Tama’s Twitter account.

    Every time I see this post there’s new info and it gets better

    You are only allowed to scroll pass this after you pay tribute to the great Tama Station masters.

    you cannot pass without reblogging guys. i’m sorry, i don’t make the rules.

    ⚔️ 𝗡𝗲𝘄 𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗺! Urnblade Weapon (scimitar), rare (requires attunement) ___

    This item appears to be a small cremation urn. While grasping the urn, you can use a bonus action to speak its first command word and cause its lid to unseal. When you do, a curved blade of dark smoke pours from the mouth of the urn. Speaking the command word again reseals the urn and causes the blade to disappear. If you are proficient with shortswords or longswords, you are proficient with the "urnblade". You gain a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon, which deals necrotic damage instead of slashing damage.

    𝙎𝙝𝙖𝙙𝙤𝙬 𝘼𝙡𝙡𝙮. While holding the urn, you can use an action to speak its second command word to animate your body’s shadow, transforming it into an undead creature. When you do, your body’s shadow detaches from you and becomes a shadow in an unoccupied space that you can see within 10 feet of you.

    On your turn, you can mentally command the shadow if you aren’t incapacitated. You decide what action the shadow takes and where it moves during its next turn, or you can issue it a general command, such as to attack your enemies or guard a location. The GM has the shadow’s statistics. This shadow doesn’t cause a new one to appear when a non-evil humanoid dies from its attacks.

    The "urnblade’s" bonus to attack and damage rolls becomes +2 while the summoned shadow exists. In addition, if you are the target of an attack and are within 5 feet of the shadow, you can use your reaction to command your shadow to become the target of the attack instead.

    The shadow disappears when it drops to 0 hit points, when it’s farther than 120 feet from you, or when you use an action to dismiss it. When it disappears, your cast shadow returns. If the shadow drops to 0 hit points, there is a cumulative 5 percent chance that the urn turns to dust and is destroyed. ___

    “JUST MARRIED,” Fernando, seated, and his husband, both members of Los Angeles’ Blue Max Motorcycle Club, get pulled over as they leave their wedding ceremony, December 1969. Photo c/o @onearchives. In the mid-twentieth century, the Blue Max Motorcycle Club, along with many other gay motorcycle clubs, provided an alternative to gay bars, which were constantly at risk of police raids and harassment. #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #queerhistorymatters #haveprideinhistory (at Los Angeles, California)

    fun fact: motorcycle clubs in the U.S. were founded and run largely by gay men who missed the homosocial camaraderie of being in the U.S. military during WWII. the lifestyle and aesthetics of those motorcycle clubs gave rise to many of the stereotypical/classic gay “looks” (leather, chaps, etc) and indeed to the gay leather scene itself (both the gay male leather/biker scene and the lesbian/dykes on bikes leather/biker scene)

    Just to add to this - the classic “metal look” that heavy metal rock came to be associated with (leather, studs, tight fitting clothes) was introduced by Rob Halford of Judas Priest, an openly gay man who says he was simply wearing the look from the gay leather subculture on stage, and people started imitating him.

    So the two “iconically heteo” fixtures of masculinity - biker gangs and heavy metal music, are both actually just gay culture that heteros unknowingly adopted.

    do the spiderverse kids all have. slightly different meme cultures

    <>miles: look I can fit my whole fist in my mouth

    <>gwen: freaky flexing. but alright


    <>miles, through his fist: I’m sorry what did you just say

    ok but remember Peter B’s world is most like ours

     so both Miles and Gwen would have slightly off memes and distress him when he has a hard enough time remembering his own world’s memes


    <>Miles: It’s “strange flex but cool bean<>s.”
    Peter: Am I tripping on something? Is this a stroke, is this what a stroke feels like?


    <>Miles: *makes a mistake* This is distressing. Siri play Take on Me.

    <>Gwen: you absolute heathen. It’s ‘This is tragic, google play All Star.’

    <>Peter: whAT the fUCK




    noir: strange flaunt, but alas


    You’ve done it - you found something that fits the format but holds the meaning “fuck Nazis”.


    spiderham: hmm disappointing, jukebox play what’s new pussycat

    One of the baristas at a nearby Starbucks makes me lose my mind every time I’m working there by saying things that are not outside the spectrum of normal human words but are just slightly off-the-wall.

    <>Barista: Welcome to Starbucks, home of delicious, what deliciousness can I put in motion for you today?

    <>Customer: … Can I get a trenta pink drink please?

    <>Barista: Go big or go home, we here at Starbucks appreciate your commitment, what else can I get started for you?


    <>Customer: Nitro cold brew with shots of espresso please.

    <>Barista: Brave of you to commit to staying awake for three days, anything else today?


    <>Barista: *slams open drive-thru window* HI HOW ARE YOU?

    <>Customer: …I’m pretty good.

    <>Barista: Are you ready to be even better? Because you’re about to be. *hands them their coffee* 


    <>Barista, realizing that a drink was made wrong: *slams open window* SO how do you feel about surprises?

    <>Customer: ….they’re okay.

    <>Barista: Great because I’m about to give you one.


    <>Barista: You have two drinks so I am going to hand you two straws which means, FANTASTIC news, these straws double as drumsticks. / You have one drink so I am going to hand you one straw and, promise not to tell anyone, this straw doubles as a magic wand.


    <>Barista: Here are those cake pops, I plucked them fresh from the tree myself.


    <>Barista: *slams open window, holding drink* Amazing, fantastic, delicious, you are a very lucky man/woman!


    <>Barista, realizing drink is being delayed or remade: Looks like it’s gonna be just one minute so they have time to put the extra love in.


    <>Barista: I’ll be with you in one hot second. *beat* WOW that second sure was hot!

    Anyway she has a few dozen catchphrases she rotates appropriately and it’s both distracting and fantastic to listen.

    She sounds like a fuckin riot and I want to tell her she’s doing amazing

    remember when president nixon’s advisor literally admitted on tv that they lied about the “war on drugs” to jail black people and got away with it

    The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

    a singular scuit. just one. 

    an edible cracker with just one side. mathematically impossible and yet here I am monching on it.

    ‘scuit’ comes from the french word for ‘bake’, ‘cuire’ as bastardized by adoption by the brittish and a few hundred years ‘biscuit’ meant ‘twice-baked’, originally meaning items like hardtack which were double baked to dry them as a preservative measure long before things like sugar and butter were introduced. if you see a historical doccument use the word ‘biscuit’ do not be fooled to think ‘being a pirate mustve been pretty cool, they ate nothing but cookies’ - they were made of misery to last long enough to be used in museum displays or as paving stones

    ‘triscuit’ is toasted after the normal biscuit process, thrice baked thus the monoscuit is a cookie thats soft and chewy because it was only baked once, not twice

    behold the monoscuit/scuit

    Why is this called a biscuit:

    when brittish colonists settled in the americas they no longer had to preserve biscuits for storage or sea voyages so instead baked them once and left them soft, often with buttermilk or whey to convert cheap staples/byproducts into filling items to bulk out the meal to make a small amount of greasy meat feed a whole family. considering hardtack biscuits were typically eaten by dipping them in grease or gravy untill they became soft enough to eat without breaking a tooth this was a pretty short leap of ‘just dont make them rock hard if im not baking for the army’ but didnt drop the name because its been used for centuries and people forgot its french for ‘twice baked’ back in the tudor era, biscuit was just a lump of cooked dough that wasnt leavened bread as far as they cared thus the buttermilk biscuit and the hardtack biscuit existed at the same time. ‘cookies’ then came to america via german and dutch immigrants as tiny cakes made with butter, sugar/molasses, and eggs before ‘tea biscuits’ as england knew them due to the new availability of cheap sugar- which is why ‘biscuit’ and ‘cookie’ are separate items in america but the same item in the UK the evolution of the biscuit has forks on its family tree

    According to the great British baking show, the difference between biscuit and cookie is how hard it is/whether or not it snaps:

    A ginger bread man is a biscuit

    Chocolate Chip is a cookie
