It had a rib cage 2ft wide, allowing it to eat whole crocodiles, and surrounding the ribcage were muscles so powerful that it could crush a rhino. Titanoboa was so big it couldn’t even spend long amounts of time on land, because the force of gravity acting on it would cause it to suffocate under its own weight. I’m so glad they aren’t around omg me too. I’m scared enough of 26 ft long anacondas. I’m so happy Megalodons, those giant sharks, aren’t alive either Praise natural selection I remember watching Walking with Beasts or something similar, or some British tv show about evolution The subject was something like a 12 foot long water scorpion I was so startled by its sudden appearance and narration that I yelped: “12 fucking feet?!?!  I’m fucking glad it’s extinct!”  Dude, prehistory was home to some fucking TERRIFYING creatures. For some reason, everything back then was enormous and scary. Extinction doesn’t always have to be a bad thing! And Poppy, what you saw was an arthropod known as Pterygotus (it was actually featured in Walking With Monsters). Not only was it as big (or maybe even bigger) than your average human, it had a stinger the size of a lightbulb. REALLY glad that bugger isn’t around anymore. Also, Megalodon deserves to be mention again, because just hearing its name makes me want to never be submerged in water ever again. GOD, I HATE THIS POST. HOW DO WE EVEN KNOW THAT SHIT ISN’T STILL AROUND? LURKING? EVOLVING? WE DON’T. WE DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT SHIT DOWN THERE. THE OCEAN IS A PRIMEVAL HELLSCAPE NIGHTMARE AND WE ALL JUST DIP OUR STUPID FRAGILE UNPROTECTED FETUS BODIES AROUND THE EDGES OF IT LIKE THAT’S NORMAL. FUCK THE OCEAN. this is so relevant to my interests  It wasn’t just the predators. North Carolina was once home to giant ground sloths… THAT IS A GODDAMNED LEAF-EATING SLOTH. We’ve got a skeleton of one of these fuckers at the museum downtown, and man, just being NEAR it is unsettling. DON’T FORGET PREHISTORIC WHALES, SOME OF THOSE FUCKERS WERE TERRIFYING AMBULOCETUS WAS AMPHIBIOUS AND PRETTY BADASS BASILOSAURUS WAS THIS GIANT REPTILIAN CETACEAN THAT PROBABLY SWAM LIKE A DUMB EEL BECAUSE OF ITS TINY FLUKES BUT THIS FUCKER WAS 60 FEET LONG AND AT THE TOP OF THE MARINE FOOD CHAIN AND THEN THERE’S MY FAVORITE, ZYGOPHYSETER, WHICH WAS THIS HUGE EARLY SPERM WHALE THAT ATE SHARKS AND OTHER WHALES IT WAS NOTHING BUT TEETH The reason why the animals in the prehistoric times were so big was because there was much more oxygen in the atmosphere if I recall correctly. Because there was so much oxygen and so few carbon gasses, life on earth was able to grow to terrifying lengths and heights, don’t forget how giant the bugs were. I have never seen so much prime nope in a single post *Goes on Tumblr at 5am to help me go back to sleep for a bit longer* *Never sleeps again* Dammit I was born to late for all the fun

Animals, Bad, and Children: 61below tumblr Follow lovelylilpup prokopetz I've seen a lot of videos going around of urban-dwelling critters coming to humans for help with various problems, ranging from boxes stuck on their heads to young trapped down a storm drain, and it's gotten me to thinking On the one hand, it's kind of fascinating that they know to do that. On the other hand, setting any questions of how this sort of behaviour must have arisen aside for the nonce, does it ever strike you how weird it is that we've got a whole collection of prey species whose basic problem-solving script ends with the step "if all else fails, go bother one of the local apex predators and maybe they'll fix the problem for no reason"? roachpatrol well, come to think of it, we're at the top of the food chain but we almost exclusively hunt and kill prey out in the country raccoons and possums and foxes and crows all succeed in an urban environment because they're opportunistic and observant. and almost none of them would have observed us pounce on one of their species and then start eating it, you know? a lot of them would have observed that we scream and chase them out of wherever we don't want them to be, but other animals are territorial too. but there's a number of situations where humans feed whoever's bold enough to take them up on the offer, and we do tend to pull garbage off of other animals as soon as they slow down enough for us to catch. 'a human got me but nothing bad happened' is a much more frequent thing than 'a human got me and tried to eat me anyway like, we're masters of our environment, we make weird shit happen all the time, we have lots of great food and sometimes we share, and we almost never eat someone. it makes sense for urban animals, over the last century or so, to just keep an eye out for opportunities to use us, and to pass the habit on to their kids. tsfennec It really is a weird, funny thing. Like yeah, technically they're predators, and they get pretty screamy, especially if you try to take any of their stuff... but given the chance it seems like they'd rather help us out and sometimes they'll just randomly give you food, so??? I mean, I guess in fairytales and myths we've got our fair share of stories about dangerous people/creatures who might well kill you or otherwise ruin your life but to whom people nonetheless turn for help in desperate circumstances. So it's not like the perspective is exactly a foreign thing to our own mindset, really It's just that, y'know, we can't actually go make a deal with the faeries when there's something we can't figure out Which brings me to an interesting thought about the ubiquitous rule about never eating the faery food lest you find yourself forever unsatisfied with anything in the human world- and the potential parallels to the dangers of feeding wildlife human food lest they become addicted and too tame and dependent to be safe for either themselves or us. Hmm.) sapphicaquarius Okay, but that last bit with the Fae... makes almost perfect sense Of the stories I've read, the food of the Fae, its origins and effects, are often strange and/or obscure- Just like our food to most animals. The Fae are strange beings that seem to know weird things that give them power or an edge over us.- Just like us to animals. The Fae work and live by strange rules also ofen nonsensical or obscure to us Just like us to animals. The Fae can easily obtain vast amounts of things we consider rare/precious/desireable, and have no problem with dishing it out wantonly for no other reason than amusement.- Just like us to animals. The Fae sometimes are amused by having us around, but only on their terms and IF it amuses/intrigues them.- Just like us to animals. GUYS, I SENSE A PATTERN.... -they have arcane social conventions and the punishment for not paying the correct respects right is banishment, if you're lucky, and death if you're not -they have wild and unexpected parties where you'd least expect to find them, but if you're bold enough to entertain them they'll feed you and caress you and play with you all night time runs strangely in their realm. their homes are summeriands: warm and bright, no matter the season. there is always fruit on their tables. but not everyone who comes in from the cold is let back out again. -their games are cruel and complex and unfair, but if you can beat them by their own rules you will access riches beyond imagining. sometimes they just fucking fuck with you, the fuckheads -they will absolutely steal your children away. when your children return-if they ever do-they will come back strange. they will know things they shouldn't. they won't know things that they should. your strange children might survive, might even prosper, might take wives and husbands and have children of their own but they will always be marked by their time away from your world. the price for pissing them off is always death. sometimes just you. sometimes your whole community if you are very good, and very smart, and very brave, they will grant your wish. oceaxereturns My eyes just got wider and wider the further down I read.

Bae, DJ Khaled, and Food: Internet Sensation 'Salt Bae' Opens Turkish Steakhouse in NYC @balleralert 1.11 Internet Sensation ‘Salt Bae’ Opens Turkish Steakhouse in NYC - blogged by @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Salt Bae’ is coming to NYC! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Turkish chef and butcher Nusret ‘Salt Bae’ Gokce became an instant internet sensation after a video of him chopping and seasoning meat went viral. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The 35-year-old’s debonair meat-prepping expertise soon made him the face of the infamous ‘sprinkling salt’ meme, which is a meme that basically captures Gokce letting salt flow down his forearm and onto the food. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since gaining online popularity, Gokce has landed a few serving jobs with celebs, such as DJ Khaled and even Simone Biles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, what most don’t know is that Gokce isn’t only a master at tossing salt on a few steaks, he’s also the owner of a successful chain of Turkish steakhouses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gokce launched his Nusr-Et restaurants years ago. He has some in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and he just recently opened one in Miami. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, he has now decided to expand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, Gokce had the grand opening of the newest restaurant to be added to the food chain in the United States, and it’s in none other than midtown Manhattan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The New York establishment is located in the former China Grill in the CBS Black Rock building at 60 W. 53rd Street. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The new location is Gokce’s thirteenth restaurant and he has plans to bring one to London if this one does well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Will you be making a visit?

9/11, Anaconda, and Apple: Chick-Fil-A Set to Open Five Story Location in New York City @balleralert Chick-Fil-A Set to Open Five Story Location in New York City-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In NYC, it's either go big or go home. So in true New York fashion, ChickfilA has announced that they will be opening their biggest restaurant right in the Big Apple. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The fast food chain revealed Monday, that their third N.Y.C. location, will be the largest location of their 2,100 restaurants across the country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The restaurant will be located right in the middle of the city’s Financial District. With 12,000 sq.-ft., the restaurant will consist of five levels, with floor-to-ceiling windows and rooftop seating for customers to take in the view of Manhattan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to design manager Nathaniel Cates, while the location will be the franchise's tallest location, it will be quite narrow at only 15-ft. wide, but will pay homage to the events of 9-11 in a major way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “With the restaurant sitting under half a mile from Ground Zero and the 9-11 Memorial, Cates’ team wanted to respectfully pay homage to the significance of the location,” reads the press release. “They drew designs for the front of the building to be stacked fully with glass windows, with elements built into the façade that give a subtle impression of the Twin Towers – one on each side of the restaurant. It’s a feature that acknowledges the significance of location.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The doors of the new location are slated to open early next year.

Ass, Chick-Fil-A, and College: University's LGBT Students 'Fear' Arrival Of Chick-fil-A Some students at Pittsburgh's Duquesne University live in "fear of the amival of a Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurant to their college's food fair, Campus Reform reports. It's not about the chicken DAILYCALLER.COM Chechnya 'Opens First Concentration Camps For Gay M Chechen president's spokesman suggests region has no homosexual people. HUFFINGTONPOST.CO.UK I BY CHRIS YORK jujubiest: memeseverdie: When people are actually being rounded up and sent to concentration camps in this year of 2017 to be beaten and killed for who they are but that doesn’t matter because a fast food chain founded by people with different views than yourself has opened near your college campus  Listen up assholes, a) you can care about more than one thing at a damn time; these students caring about this issue doesn’t mean they care about literally nothing else. Actually, college students are often some of the most active when it comes to volunteer work, fundraising, and supporting social justice. Chances are these students all have at least one other cause they are heavily involved in supporting, if not more. And b) I went to a college that affiliated itself with Chik-Fil-A. T. Cathy was on the board of trustees and the company funded a scholarship at the school. And let me tell you, that fucker took every opportunity to let the LGBT students know that if it were solely up to him, none of us would be allowed. Recipients of that scholarship lived in separate dorms 3 miles from the main campus and had to sign really invasive “pure Christian living” pledges that, of course, included not being queer. They could literally lose funding for their education if they were found in violation of that pledge, on or off campus. That program was one of the biggest sources (if not THE biggest) of scholarship money at the school, and it explicitly excluded LGBT students. But it didn’t stop there. We–the rest of the student body–weren’t allowed to have a GSA for DECADES because of Cathy’s influence, leading to a lot of isolation for LGBT students and glossing over of hate crimes against them. In my senior year I was roommates with the president of the unofficial “LGBT support network.” We finally managed to get the administration to let us meet on campus at all (but not advertise in school event publications or access student organization funding). I saw a lot of shit during that time, including the school making up increasingly obvious bullshit excuses not to let us form an official student organization. My roommate had to have regular meetings with the dean of students–a responsibility shared by all other student organizations, even though we got none of the same benefits–and she used to panic before the meetings and cry after them. They were basically just a way to verbally and emotionally abuse her, keep us “in check,” and appear to be giving us special consideration all the while. And ALL of that shit led straight back to Cathy’s queerphobic ass. Don’t even get me started on the shady shit that went down within the scholarship recipients. Many of them were lovely people, but I swear every time something fucked up happened, it seems like it was someone from that goddamn program. Their shenanigans actually made national news at least once while I was there, painting the entire school in a terrible light. So these students have every reason to be concerned. I wouldn’t want that fucker and his shitty, over-hyped chicken anywhere near my school if I were them, not even in the most casual and seemingly innocuous way. Because he always find some way to bring his shitty views with him and spread them like a virus. !!!!!!
