I knew this had to be Skyrim long before looking at the tags. I have caught myself staring at the sky plenty of times in this game. Just breathtaking.
Himalayan Monal (Lophophorus impejanus), also known as the Impeyan Pheasant or Danphe, is the national bird of Nepal and is found in the Himalayas.
Peacock pheasants are my new favorite birds.
SOMEBODY MADE A HIMALAYAN MONAL PHOTOPOST AND IT WASN’T ME AND I DON’T KNOW IF I SHOULD BE GREATFUL OR MAD AT MYSELF
i always read this with a really bad french accent
Oh god in French accent it’s 10x funnier
On the left we have the lyrics from Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. On the right we rape survivors participating in Project Unbreakable, showing the various things that were said to them by their rapist.
i think this is the most powerful photoset i’ve ever seen on tumblr.
Reblogging until you understand why this song is so vile
The worst part to me is the song is ridiculously catchy and it gets played all the time. I didn’t like the lyrics when I first heard it, it made my uncomfortable, but till someone pointed out to me WHY it made me uncomfortable I didn’t mind. Honestly most of the time I didn’t even think about the words, just hummed along. Now it just disgusts me.
oh shit I did not notice this
That fourth one doesn’t look anything like a badger to me. Have they ever seen a badger run?
Dedicating this post to the word “plethora.”
Chasm… I”ll never live that down…
Most of the words within my vocabulary.
"Angst" blew me away when it was said in class.
Damn you macabre.
Fucking epitome still haunts me.
I’ve been caught out on this so often!
Pariah. I never knew how to pronounce it until I was corrected by a Professor when I was in the States.
I think when I first tried to pronounce it, it was something along the lines of ‘hyper-bowl’.
Words that still get me: chaste, mischievous, and succinct.
Subtle. That one ALWAYS gets me. Oh the irony.
Tired swimmer rescued in Finland
During the first weekend of November, a Finnish man was kayaking on a lake in a thick fog. He saw something floating in the water, and when he got closer he saw that it was a Northern Hawk-Owl. It was clearly exhausted and the man lifted it out of the freezing water onto the tip of his kayak. The owl then crawled to his lap for warmth and burrowed under his lifejacket.
Since his original destination was too far away, the man decided to head for a nearby art museum on the lake shore. Once there he was eagerly assisted by both visitors and a museum guide, who took the bird in to rest and dry up next to a warm stove. At the end of the day the owl had recovered and was released back into the wild.
How the owl ended up in the lake in the first place remains a mystery. It may have got lost in the fog, or have been driven out to the lake by Hooded Crows (if a flock spots a predatory bird they tend to chase it away quite aggressively).
(This is my summarized translation of the article which is only available in Finnish. No copyright infringement is intended, only sharing this to celebrate the brave little owl and all the people who helped him.)
