thinking about how the “apartment with friends or/and partners” fantasy is a direct product of growing up in a place that doesn’t feel safe or like home, and then when you meet people who feel like home you want nothing more than for a place you live to feel like this
I want to add that I am not saying “wanting to live with someone is a product of trauma” I am saying that when you live in an unstable environment during a crucial time it can feel like home isn’t real or you will never be safe unless you are alone. And I am saying that there is such bravery in the act of rebellion that is loving people so much you want to spend life with them. And I am saying finding people who make you feel safe is the most wonderful thing in the world.
hey boss, just "accidentally" stabbed my "hand". got any cursed blood facts?
great news anon, as a human your blood is already among the most cursed on the planet!
see, most people don’t realize this, but mammal blood is actually completely unique among vertebrates. if you put a drop of mammal blood on a microscope slide next to a drop of lizard blood, you would be able to tell them apart instantly!
how? simple- mammalian blood cells don’t have a nucleus!
the nucleus is a dark mass at the center of a cell that tells it what to do and lets it reproduce by splitting itself in two- and every other major vertebrate group on the planet has nucleated blood cells.
BUT NOT MAMMALS. (these cells are NAKED somebody please GET THEM SOME PANTS.)
at some point in their 200+ million years of evolutionary history, mammals discovered that if you force your red blood cells to drop their nucleus and turn into pink cheerios, they can focus on carrying oxygen and ONLY carrying oxygen! this means that mammal blood is much more efficient than fish or reptile or even bird blood at carrying oxygen liter-for-liter, though at the cost of lugging around some extra internal organs and having to make new blood inside of your bones. what a steal!
maybe that’s why all the stock photo blood researchers are making that face.
thinking about how fiona’s bit in the first shrek movie about how ogres are so ugly and unlovable, which is overheard by shrek, is the perfect example of how self-deprecation can really harm not only the people around you who love and care for you, but also people who share the same characteristics that you are mocking in yourself
I need to do a better job of reminding myself of this.
sometimes I think about how al capone donated to charity in an attempt to improve his image
this is how I see ‘philanthropic’ billionaires today
This is very unfair to Al Capone, who donated a much higher percentage of his income than any billionaire ever and was reputedly a good tipper.
you know what, you technically aren’t wrong
I accidentally found out one of my friends has a huge dick, and in a panic I blurted out “congratulations on the pipe, man.” What’s my next move after this
no you’re good. thhats the end of the transmission

It’s interesting to note that that the garments that have a cross over style when worn correctly are all worn with the left breast over the right.That is because these countries tend to wrap right over left when they are wrapping the dead.
Here are what some men’s fashion looks like if anyone is interested.
