I though these cakes looked like pillows, and there’s the obvious play on ‘sweet dreams.’ I wondered if I could fall asleep on a cake and have sweet dreams. I didn’t. It was pretty gross really and wasn’t easy to wash off. A few years later, outtakes from the shoot were sold to Getty Images as stock photos. I didn’t know this until 2011 when one of those photos made #13 on the wildly popular Buzzffed.com list of “60 Completely Unusable Stock Photos.” Into 2014, the Getty Image photo continues to make the rounds on Facebook and Tumblr.” i can’t believe i leveled up enough to unlock cake pillow guy’s backstory I can’t believe the “sweet dreams” joke didn’t occur to me : coelasquid: skylorde: livinmokotory: adhdalistair: penisennui: (via Justin Jorgensen) “In 2007 I worked with photographers Williams + Hirakawa to create a concept piece of me sleeping on a sheet cake.

end0skeletal-undead: Hold still. This creature was recorded going 2,569 days without moving.Salamanders play the long game, with many species living surprisingly long lives. But among these enduring amphibians, there is one outlier – the olm, also known as the proteus. It has been well documented that these small white cave-dwelling salamanders can live well into their hundreds, but scientists have now gained new insight into the creatures’ glacial pace of life.In a study which makes sloths look recklessly hyperactive, divers documenting the movements of olms in Herzegovinian caves found that over a decade, individuals tended to move less than 10 metres in total. However, one extraordinarily inert individual was found not to have bothered moving once in over seven years. Olms have no predators, are highly resistant to starvation – able to go without food for several years – are blind and live in complete darkness underground and underwater. They are apparently only compelled to move in order to mate, which they do on average around once every 12.5 years.In the caves in which they dwell food is typically scarce, but when they are able, olms feed on small crustaceans such as small shrimps, snails and occasionally insects.Read the full article here.Photo credit here via Getty: end0skeletal-undead: Hold still.
