Ōkunoshima (大久野島) is a small island located in the Inland Sea of Japan in the city of Takehara, Hiroshima Prefecture. It is accessible by ferry from Tadanoumi and Ōmishima. There are campsites, walking trails and places of historical interest on the island. It is often calledUsagi Jima (ウサギ島, “Rabbit Island”) because of the numerous feral rabbits that roam the island; they are rather tame and will approach humans.  
The one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first."
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness.”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
"how are you doing?"

Do you ever get that feeling where you made a friend online and you’re very close even though you’ve never met each other in person and you just
really miss them
like you miss being able to hang out with them in physical space even though you’ve never actually gotten to do it before
Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.
Thiiiiiiis, people, thiiiis!
1. Kill alpha male types
2. Achieve world peace
I’ve actually read a lot of Sapolsky’s work. He’s one of my favorite scientists in the neuro/socio world.
I just watched the documentary and there is so much more about the troop that isn’t in this photoset—not only does the troop have a culture of little aggression and greater cooperation, but any incoming jerk baboons learned within a few months that their shitty behaviour was in no way acceptable, that the troop only rewarded sociability, and they changed accordingly.
If effin’ baboons can learn this there’s pretty much no reason to believe that our only option in dealing with assholes is to just ignore their behaviour and let it continue.
there really is no excuse.
i dont care if its in spanish or if you’ve seen it already, see it again
I’m serious please watch this. This is one of the best things you’ll ever watch, even if you can’t understand it, you won’t need to, everything will be clear enough.
I LOVE JOKES THAT ARE SO TERRIBLE THEY BECOME FUNNY IRONICALLY I LITERALLY LAUGH SO HARD AT THOSE ITS EMBARASSING
Why couldn’t the man find his map
Because he lost his map
im really pissed that palindrome isnt palindrome backwards
Ah, yes but emordnilap is a word!
An emornilap is any word that, when spelled backwards, produces another word. Examples of emordnilap pairs include:
- desserts & stressed
- drawer & reward
- gateman & nametag
- time & emit
- laced & decal
- regal & lager
And therefore “emordnilap palindrome” is an emordnilap palindrome.
Which I, for one, think is really frickin’ cool.
The floor of a video game store, it is entirely flat
this would fuck me up
im not ok
Imagine a drunk person walking in there
Easy there satan
But could you imagine if it was all flat, except for one dip somewhere in the store. But by the time people find it, they think the floor is flat so they’re just walking normally and they they step in this dip and fall over from the unexpected drop.
So satan has two blogs
Astonishing bravery of boy who risked his life to save baby deer in Bangladesh river by holding it above raging floodwaters
- Boy called Belal defiantly held the young fawn in one hand above his head
- Onlookers were unsure whether the boy was going to appear again
- When he made it to the other side the locals cheered
- Teenager jumped into river in Noakhali, Bangladesh to save animal
A brave boy fearlessly risked his own life and showed astonishing bravery to save a helpless baby deer from drowning.
The boy, called Belal and believed to be in his early teens, defiantly held the young fawn in one hand above his head as he plunged through the surging river.
During the ordeal onlookers were unsure whether the boy was going to appear again.
When he finally made it to the other side the locals cheered as the deer was reunited with its family.
The incident took place in Noakhali, Bangladesh, when the young fawn became separated from its family during torrential rain and fast-rising floods.
Wildlife photographer Hasibul Wahab captured the brave act while visiting on a photography trip.
He said the Noakhali locals lose a lot of deer during the rainy season and that they have to do all they can to protect them.
He said: ‘He was such a brave boy - the river was so full of water and it was high tide so we thought he might drown.
'My friend was even ready to jump into the river to save the boy. But he made it, and when he returned, we thanked the boy.
'There were only five to seven people observe this situation but it was a phenomenal sight.'
describing eye colors isn’t actually v helpful as a description??? talk about the makeup smeared on the left side, the lines under their eyes, the sloppily cut hair obscuring their eyes from view, how bloodshot or sunken they seem in the face, how wide they go at the slightest sound, how glassy and unblinking they seem, how they’re always darting away
all of that tells me a bit more about the character than whatever shade of gemstone they most resemble, seriously
