It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing

Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course). Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.


AWHH. KITTY.

WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU

pew, pew!

SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR URGENT

YOU CALLED!?
This fish is not actually spitting bioluminescent spit…it’s spitting out its bioluminescent food! Some clever scientist has put some bioluminescent ostracods in a tank with some little fish. When agitated, these ostracods (tiny shirmpthings) secrete chemicals that, when combined, emit light.
Why?
You’re seeing why right here. Just before the fish spits it out, those light chemicals are filling up the belly of the fish. Now, it isn’t poisonous or anything…but the fish wants NOTHING TO DO WITH IT because the fish has predators too. 
So yeah, if you’re a little fish and suddenly you’re FREAKING GLOWING, your lifespan has just gotten a lot shorter. 
As soon as the fish realizes that there’s light emanating from its belly, it pukes out the glowing juices (and the little shrimp). You can actually see the ostracod in this gif swimming away down toward the bottom of the tank happy as a clam…or a shrimp. 
Evolution is AWESOME.

Men affectionately holding hands with each other (the norm in many parts of Asia and Africa - Showing this type of affection does not cause others to question the sexuality of men displaying this type of affection) - photographer unknown

"It’s an Asian thing (and an African thing), not just an Indian one and completely endearing that men are so very close that they hold hands, in fact cuddling, snuggling and generally finding physical comfort amongst their own kind is the ABSOLUTE norm. Much like we women do in other parts of the world (curiously the women in India seem to refrain from any touch in public) they are affectionate with each other. But I would say the use of hands themselves, are definitely more the point of contact. They literally play with each others hands, hold them as they walk down the street, intertwine them when they are snuggled on the train, tweak them while they watch cricket and linked pinkies as they walk amongst temples.” (Source)

No matter how many times I see this, I never fail to be impressed by that last sentence.


And that everyone, is how it’s done
