biomorphosis:

Aye-aye is one of the strangest looking primates. They can only be found in the north-eastern parts of Madagascar. They are nocturnal and usually at the altitude above 700 meters of rain forest trees.

It has specifically designed middle finger which is used for extraction of food from trunks, braches and hard shells. Aye-aye taps a branch with its finger and listens if there is any sound of moving insects or larvae inside. If the movement is detected, aye-aye will make a hole with sharp teeth and use its middle digit to scoop the prey.

The ancient legends of Malagasy considered it the symbol of death due to its scary looks and eerie call. They believe that if the long pointed finger is pointed to any person, death befalls him/her. This leads people to kill aye-ayes on sight. Aye-aye is listed as nearly threatened species with 1000 left on the wild  and it is currently under protection.

reminder for bisexuals

lyricalred:

today is bi visibility day. as such, bisexual people will be completely visible for the next 24 hours. this is a bad day to engage in bank heists, ghost impersonations, covert operations for vague yet menacing government agencies, and other common bisexual hobbies that rely upon our powers of invisibility.

Where can I get a hat like that? I already have a niece like that.
Anonymous

If you’re looking for this particular hat, I bought it in a local store but you may be able to find it online. Barmah hats squashy hat-in-a-bag. It is very stylish and comfortable, but not so good for hot weather or windy days.

For cutting down on fluorescent light migraines, I imagine any wide brimmed hat should do. I’m still experimenting a bit with what works best for me; a bandana pulled down low to cut off peripheral vision works even better than a hat, but restricts my vision more. My migraines are fairly mild, so what works for me may not work as well for other people.

My first attempt at making a zine!
In all honesty, the drawings are not very good and there are some spelling mistakes and stuff, but y’know. Live and learn. Hopefully I’ll make one once a month (that’s the goal). Anyway, enjoy!

OMG LOOK AT ALL THIS SWEET ADVICE

Is there anything a natural 20 can’t do?

This is a poster idea I developed to show off the amazingness of tabletop rpgs.

"You attempt to pickpocket the man, but accidentally pull down his pants instead."

"You reach out to push the orc off the bridge, but instead lightly caress his back. He is uncomfortable."

"You try to stab the guard, but you stab your crotch instead. Roll fortitude."

"You say your name is Bob and not Jim. Your lie is misinterpreted and they now believe you are a serial killer."

"You swing your axe, but it slips from your fingers and sails across the room."

"In an attempt to dodge the incoming arrows, you jump into the swarm.”

"You bull rush the enemy but miss and jump off of the cliff."

"You try to land on your feet but you land on your sword instead."

"While providing first aid, your hand slips and you stab him in the heart. He dies instantly."

I CANT BREATHE

"You cast Ghost Noise. Instead of children’s laughter, it creates loud, continuous fart noises."

"Intimidate backfires. You pee your pants."

"You smother and kill your companion while bandaging his wounds."
