We live in a world where it’s more acceptable to dislike yourself and openly say “I am ugly” rather than actually appreciate yourself and openly say “I am attractive” because how dare you feel good in your skin and say it out loud, what an awful human being you are, you can’t walk around thinking you’re good, you piece of shit.

Lovely work to create an tank for Angel fish. These fish have always matched perfectly with driftwood scapes.
my friend left her window open in her bedroom and came back to find this
look at his self-satisfied little face, the cheeky shit
if there was a post to describe australia, this is it
you mean to tell me this isn’t even a pet bird?
that in australia, you have wild birds that just fly from house to house with the express purpose of fucking shit up?
fucking HELL australia, what is wrong with you?
wake up australia
That’s what birds do
They fly around and fuck shit up
Do you have some kind of mysterious nice birds in your weird foreign country
Do birds in America and England fly into your house and make the bed and tidy up the living room a little bit
It’s cold here, so they just bounce off the windows and lie there and twitch spasmodically while you look for the shovel.
Basically hurling themselves at windows is the worst thing birds do
yeah man a kookaburra literally flew into a classroom at my high school and just sat his smug ass down on top of the desk for a good 20 minutes
why has nobody mentioned the fact that in australia there are 3-4 months a year where everybody just accepts that they’re going to get attacked by magpies. It is literally called “swooping season” and these birds will fly down to peck your fucking face, and people get their eyes ripped out and shit, it’s fucking brutal.
My teacher had to go to hospital and have surgery because of swooping season. It was in the parking lot of school and all the kids would do a mad dash towards the car as the magpies tried to kill us.
no but when you’re 12 years old and riding your bike like mad on the way home from school with an icecream bucket on your head with like branches and shit sticking out if it to scare them off and none of this is considered strange
what the actual fuck australia
So…do Australians watch The Birds & think it’s a documentary?
You’re thinking of Birdemic

"Today is the tenth anniversary of the death of the as of yet only known albino gorilla, the springboard that brought researcher Jordi Sabater Pi to the public eye. He had a prolific career in fields such as anthropology, primatology and ethology, in which he was noted for his formidable powers of observation, illustration and innovative theories.
When hunters carried a baby gorilla as white as snow and only two years old to the Zoological Centre of Experimentation Ikunde in Equatorial Guinea, Jordi Sabater Pi (Barcelona, 1922-2009), became responsible for the installation, he undertstood he had in his hands a singluar primate. Genetics had deprived him of melanin, a pigment that offers protection from the sun.
Conscious of the risk to the little furry ball’s life, Sabater Pi paid 15,000 pesetas to the hunters and took charge of breeding on 1 October, 1966. Named Nfumu Ngui (White Gorilla fang in African language Fang), he adapted well to a life in captivity and dealt well with humans. A month later, Sabater Pi transfered the primate to Barcelona (Spain), where, after being on the cover of National Geographic , Snowflake became the best ambassador for the city.
"The discover was a curiosity in his career, yet Jordi was much more than the discoverer of Snowflake. He was a pioneer in the study of primates and introduced the fields of ethology and primatology to Spain", comments SINC Montserrat Colell, professor of Ethology at the University of Barcelona, who worked with the Spanish researcher during the last years of his life.
"The albino gorilla was the best press spokesman for Jordi, even though he found Snowflake accidentally", adds Daniel Turbón, professor of Anthropology at the same university.
The prolific scientific career of Jordi Sabater Pi began almost by chance. When he was still a teenager, he moved with his family in 1939 to Equatorial Guinea to work as a foreman on a farm cottages” (read more in Spanish).
