WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU

pew, pew!

SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR URGENT

YOU CALLED!?
This fish is not actually spitting bioluminescent spit…it’s spitting out its bioluminescent food! Some clever scientist has put some bioluminescent ostracods in a tank with some little fish. When agitated, these ostracods (tiny shirmpthings) secrete chemicals that, when combined, emit light.
Why?
You’re seeing why right here. Just before the fish spits it out, those light chemicals are filling up the belly of the fish. Now, it isn’t poisonous or anything…but the fish wants NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM because the fish has predators too. 
So yeah, if you’re a little fish and suddenly you’re FREAKING GLOWING, your lifespan has just gotten a lot shorter. 
As soon as the fish realizes that there’s light emanating from its belly, it pukes out the glowing juices (and the little shrimp). You can actually see the ostracod in this gif swimming away down toward the bottom of the tank happy as a clam…or a shrimp. 
Evolution is AWESOME.

Animals are amazing. Period.

I’ve seen this gif on my dash several times, but after reading that informative comment, I’ve finally caved in and reblogged.

Like, I can’t believe that there are giants balls of fire millions of light years away because I just can’t imagine the size of the universe but that doesn’t mean they don’t fucking exist.

a comic from playboy magazine, about two men hwo are going to rape a woman.
This from Pornland by Gail Dines, about Playboy, page 11:
TRIGGER WARNING: GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION OF RAPE:
"… one such battle occured over a story by Calder Willingham that appeared in the JUly 1962 issue. Called "Bus story", it focuses on the rape of a seventeen year old girl by an older man. However, as in much of pornography, the story is written in a way that sexualizes the brutality: "there are times to be tender and times to be just a little rough. This was a time to be just a little rough. Left forearm heavily across her breasts and left hand gripping her shoulder so hard she winced, Harrys used his knees like a wedge, grey eyes hypnotic above her. ‘Open your legs’, he said in a cold, hard and vicious tone. Lips apart and eyes empty with shock, the girl did as she was told. A moment later, hands limp on his shoilders, a gasp came from her. Then another gasp".. "
Pornland by Gail Dines, page 22:
"In ‘Bunny Tales’, Izabella St. James, an ex-girlfriend of Hefner’s, writes about waht really went on at the mansion; how Hefner would have uunprotected sex with a number of women, one after the other, but regardless of how women he penetrated, he could orgasm only by masturbating to pornography. St. James discloses that many of the young women didn’t want to have sex with Hefner but "it was part of the unspoken rules. It was almost as if we had to do it in return for all the things we had".."
This does not sound like man who gives a shit about women, it sounds like a man who gives a shit about men’s ability to rape and dehumanize women.
No matter how many “anti-rape” guides or whatever, playboy prints, the fact is that as pornography, is it rape culture and anti-female propaganda.

PETITION FOR DID-YOU-KNO TO PUBLISH THE ABOVE
fucking sick of Hefner-apologist bs it’s disgusting
he HATES women
HATES us
he’s just bloody good at PR

Since Colorado voted to legalize marijuana for recreational use in January, that vote has created more then 20 white marijuana millionaires who the Government has allowed to store their millions in U.S. Banks. 

Keep in mind that there are more then 100,000 black and latino people who are in American prisons for the same simple possession and intend to sell marijuana. 

BUT THEY MAKING WHITE BOYS MILLIONAIRES FOR COMMITTING THE SAME ACT!

Been saying this for a minute
