literal “L. O. L.”
This is Cacoa. She can detect my seizures, helps me through my anxiety attacks, and helps me sleep. She’s even woken me up when I’m having one of my flashbacks/night terrors (I have PTSD). I never trained her to do this.
One of her quirks is her love of boxes. I was in the ER due to severe nausea and abdominal pain and they gave me this vomit bucket that I didn’t use. Since they were going to have to throw it away because I touched I decided to bring it home. We’ve had the bucket for two years now. If it goes missing Cacoa freaks out while searching for it. It’s her favorite box ever.

Technically the vampire squid is named the vampire squid from Hell (Vampyroteuthis infernalis) so maybe it’s fitting that they’re dwellers of the deepest oceans. It is an odd little creature in that it’s the only surviving member of its family which hold traits from both squid and octopi and thus it isn’t really either. Apparently they get their name because they have red eyes and, depending on the lighting, either a black or red “cloak” between their tentacles. The bony spines in each tentacle (visible as the white dots above) probably help some too.
All the cool things about vampire squid are also related to the deeps they live in. Their blood for example is literally blue and much more capable of transmitting oxygen than our weak, red blood. Their blood is the most likely reason for them being able to not only survive but thrive in the hostile, oxygen poor conditions of the deep ocean. If they are threatened, instead of ink they spray a bio-luminescent mucus that makes the attacker literally see stars in the eternal darkness down there. And, to be perfectly honest, the squid themselves are bio-luminescent, their bodies emitting weak, bluish light in strips from head to toe.
The Vampire squid first appeared before dinosaurs, about 300 million years ago. It has not gone through many changes during that time and is considered a living fossil.
In order to protect itself from predators in the deep sea, the Vampire squid is able to turn itself inside out and give off a spiny appearance
Simon Dale is a photographer by trade, but a hobbit home builder by night. The artist has an affinity for creating homes that are from natural material, and Dale’s own version of a ‘Hobbit‘ House are just that– a small residence that has a green roof and is partially underground.
The home is entirely sustainable and was built with straw bale walls that are covered in lime plaster. All else has been recycled scraps to craft the wooden roof structure and other elements. Of course the electricity is all gained via solar panels, and The entire floor plan and building section for the space were hand sketched onto a piece of paper.

While some say the body should be treated like a temple, others insist that it’s a playground for physical pleasures and sensations. But to photographer Carl Warner, the body is a landscape. Manipulating images of various voluptuous nude bodies, Warner constructs sweeping vistas composed of limbs and abdomens. Evocative of the rock formations in the American Southwest, the body landscapes are dreamlike and sensual. Take a look at some of Warner’s body landscapes after the jump.

#actors who are actually their character
the greatest casting ever.
Even better when you think about how Dan got a place for himself in NY to continue his career, Emma went to a school in USA, and Rupert bought a fucking ice cream truck.
Follow your dreams Rupert
I didn’t know this. So I looked it up and - HE ACTUALLY DID.
‘I keep my van well stocked. It’s got a proper machine that dispenses Mr Whippy ice cream and I buy my lollies wholesale – 50 for a tenner – so I never run short.
I’m not allowed to sell my merchandise. I’d need a licence for that. ‘I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free. They’ll say, “Ain’t you Ron Weasley?” And I’ll say, “It’s strange, I get asked that a lot.”
It makes it even better that he just GIVES the icecream away. [Source]
rupert is the hero we all deserve
you go man with your truck
I know some of you may have been turned off by the overly-hyperbolic posts about CISPA making the rounds; but the above is legit. If you haven’t signed the petition yet, please do. It needs about 25,000 signatures by next week.
Be aware that you will need to create an account with whitehouse.gov, which is a bit of a nuisance, but once you have it, it’s very easy to sign future petitions—petitions which actually have a chance of going somewhere.

This army officer in Belarus took care of that squirrel when they brought it to him, weak and about to die. He hand fed it back to health every four hours.
He is now a taxi driver and they are inseparable. The squirrel is in his pocket no matter where he goes.
