Ironychan Presents: ten animals that look like they’re supposed to be extinct and nobody told them (pictures mostly courtesy of Wikipedia).

THE OKAPI (Okapia johnstoni) - let’s start with the cuddly one.  The Okapi is the nearest living relative of the giraffe.  It is a shy, inoffensive animal that wanders around the African rainforest, completely unaware of the fact that it looks like a damned cave painting of itself.

THE CHINESE WATER DEER (Hydropotes inermis) - also relatively cuddly, as abominations of evolution go… but then you look at those teeth.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is a saber-toothed deer, and yes, it’s a 100% real animal and not something the Ice Age movies made up.

THE CASSOWARY (Casuarius casuarius) - all those books that assured you dinosaurs were extinct are full of lies.  A cassowary is basically a shaggy velociraptor with the personality of a grizzly bear.  They’ve been known to kick people to death with a real-life slashing claw on the inner toe of each foot - and to top it off, they’re approximately twice the size of the original velociraptor.

THE GIANT ISOPOD (Bathynomus giganteus) - here comes the freaky shit.  The wikipedia link there will tell you that these are giant wood lice that eat carrion at the bottom of the sea.  My theory is that they’re the ghosts of extinct trilobites and they’re plotting our downfall.

THE GIANT WETA (Deinacrida heteracantha) - an enormous primitive cricket that New Zealand came up with in an attempt to compete with Australia in the ‘mutant horrors’ category.  That spine on its ass isn’t a sting - it’s an ovipositor.  It uses that to make more giant wetas.

THE PANGOLIN (Manis pentadactyla) - kind of a cross between an anteater and a pine cone.  This is actually a mammal and it eats mostly termites, despite having claws you could hang a slaughtered ox off of.  They walk on their hind legs, just for the sake of throwing a little dinosaur into the mix.

THE HOATZIN (Opisthocomus hoazin) - a big bird that lives in South America and looks like it was invented by Dr. Seuss… until you look closely and discover that it has claws on its wings and it uses them to climb with.  Much like the cassowary, the hoatzin is tired of being a bird and has decided it’s time to revert to dinosaur-hood and reclaim the planet.

THE GHARIAL (Gavialis gangeticus) - this fucker lives in rivers in India, quietly disguised as an ugly malnourished crocodile when anybody with eyes can clearly see it’s an undercover ichthyosaur.  With warts.  Look at that thing.  Even the turtle is terrified of it.

THE TUATARA (Sphenodon punctatus) - although it resembles a lizard, the Tuatara is genetically unrelated to any living reptile and it has three eyes: two in the normal places and one in the top of its head.  No, really.  And they live basically forever, so personally I think these are the same ones that just stopped evolving sometime in the Carboniferous.

THE COELACANTH (Latimeria chalumnae) - now here I’m being quite literal: these things actually did go extinct millions of years ago and yet there were a few bastards who were asleep at their desks and didn’t get the memo that nature was downsizing.  Thus they lurk in deep waters to this day, staring bug-eyed out at us to remind us that our nightmares can come true.

#john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
"hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
"don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

Bolding mine.

FAIRIES learn to dance before they learn to

walk ;
Fairies learn to sing before they learn to

talk;
Fairies learn their counting from the cuckoo’s

call ;
They do not learn Geography at all.

Fairies go a-riding with witches on their

brooms
And steal away the rainbows to brighten up

their rooms ;
Fairies like a sky-dance better than a

feast ;
They have a birthday once a week at

least.


Fairies think the rain as pretty as the sun ;
Fairies think that trespass-boards are only

made for fun ;
Fairies think that peppermint’s the nicest

thing they know ;
I always take a packet when I go.

Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.
― Louis L’Amour (via psych-quotes)
I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.

holy shit

AWESOME!!!!!!!!

This is science, this is also the reason most scientists are scientists. To be able to play with awesome shit like this. And learn stuff from it!!!! Literally, most scientists are just big kids who never unlearned how to play. Oh my gosh this is so awesome! I love this so much!!!! Makes me want to go back to university studying physics I don’t care how much math it takes I just want to learn this stuff

This, my friends, is the silky anteater. They almost look more like something out of the Frouds’ studios than a living creature! They’re the world’s smallest anteater, and they can be found from southern Mexico down into a large portion of northern South America. Its fur helps it stay camouflaged, as it resembled the fluff on the seed pods of silk cotton trees.
