Found all around the world, including off the coast of Australia, the tripod fish can live in depths of up to 6 km below the surface. The purpose of those super-long fins is to elevate the tripod fish to about a metre above the seabed, where the ocean’s current is strong. This means that small prawns and crabs are ushered right into the tripod fish’s gaping mouth, and all it has to do is stand there.Read more about the tripod fish in Bec Crew’s latest blog for Australian Geographic:http://bit.ly/1dkIFvV

"Satan got Adam and Eve to think for themselves. Really he is the good guy in all of this, and God is the clingy jerk that wants everyone to do what he wants."

Emei Moustache Toad (Vibrissaphora boringii)

…a species of megophryid frog endemic to parts of  China. It is usually found in moist temperate forests/grasslands, rivers, gardens, and other suitable areas. Like most amphibians the Emei moustache toad feeds mostly on insects, worms, and other small invertebrates. Currently the Emei mustache toad is listed as endangered this is due in part to urban development,habitat loss, and over collection for the pet trade.

Those Poor Wives

historical-nonfiction:

According to Polish anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski, the natives of the South Pacific coined the phrase “missionary position,” because the newly arrived Christian missionaries were shocked that people in the South Pacific had sex in several positions, not just one.

A leopard slug! I never see them in Florida, but where I’m staying right now in MD they are incredibly common to the point of being nuisances.
Some say that banana slugs are the largest North American slugs but Leopards can in fact grow larger!

Fun fact: The leopard slug is not a real leopard, even in part. It’s really entirely a slug.

Description: A formidable leader, Saladin, sultan of Egypt, is respected by his enemies and idolized by his followers.

I love how he looks like he’s shouting his own name with his hands in the air as he runs over that peasant.

if you go to hell for being bad why wouldn’t satan reward you for it why does he make you suffer wtf id be like hell yeah motherfucker you my nigga lets party

i started to laugh and then i realized that this is actually a really valid question

Alternatively, if Satan punishes sinners, why isn’t he considered good?

If the Pope dies, is he being promoted or fired?

We’re becoming self aware
