what was my life before lgbt books? seriously. my life and reading experience has improved by 100% since i started seeking lgbt books. i didn’t realise how much i needed them until i got them. support lgbt authors and books, you guys. there’s so many of them. but people look at YA and think the only books you get are about straight white people. but that’s not true at all. books with diverse characters are there. they just need more support and exposure so they can reach more people.

Donkey shit upon you!
SCIENCE NEWS! There’s life way, way below Antarctica — chilling out in a subglacial lake. Just a few weeks ago, a team of scientists confirmed that half a mile beneath the Antarctic ice sheet, a bunch of tiny, single-celled organisms are alive and well… in a lake boasting sub-zero temperatures and no access to sunlight.
The discovery is groundbreaking, leading some to wonder if there might also be life on a similar place — Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons.
John Priscu is one of the lead scientists behind the study. In a talk at TEDxBozeman, he explains what it’s like to be a scientist drilling though thousands of feet of ice while living in a tent in Antarctica.

part two to ‘Polish cases are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be’ (part one here). Though I feel like people may question the title after reading the locative slides…
If you don’t really get the locative, don’t worry. You’ll find yourself in good company, and until it kind of sinks in, my recommendation is to just add -u or change the ending to -u. Polish people will completely understand if you say ‘w teatru’ or ‘w kartu’ (or at least, I should hope they would!) and are likely to correct you (so you will learn!), and you will actually get it right a fair amount of the time.
once again, corrections are encouraged!
first attempt at scientific illustration. I got to draw Draco Volans and sit with a real individual between my hands (dead, of course, but still) I’m still an amateur at this, but I’ll learn. Hopefully.
Go look them up, they’re awesome.
i hope u find someone that mindlessly plays with your hands and lightly strokes your legs and massages your back and plays with your hair and i hope that u feel like you’re home when u look at them

a nonthreatening guide to forming cases (including strong/weak adjectival endings), as requested by snowflakemelodies
corrections and additions welcome!
The meteorite that is believed to have wiped dinosaurs off the planet millions of years ago also decimated the evergreen flowering plants of the time, but the harsh conditions that followed the killer impact favored fast-growing, deciduous plants, and helped ancient forests bloom, according to a new study, published in the journal PLOS Biology on Tuesday.
Scientists believe that a chunk of rock, measuring six miles in diameter, hit the Yucatán Peninsula in southeastern Mexico some 66 million years ago and triggered various natural calamities such as tsunamis, wildfires, earthquakes and volcanic explosions that led to the extinction of dinosaurs. Now, the new study, conducted by researchers from the University of Arizona, reveals that the properties of deciduous plants helped them cope with the varying “post-apocalyptic” climate conditions on the planet.
“When you look at forests around the world today, you don’t see many forests dominated by evergreen flowering plants,” Benjamin Blonder, the study’s lead author, said in a statement. “Instead, they are dominated by deciduous species, plants that lose their leaves at some point during the year.”
I like to think she wears a jumper because a bakery is the only place warm enough for her demonic skin.

LOL this is great.
actually it’s hunting lmao puffers eat snails
