Let’s Review 130 Illustrated: Bulbheads to Forest Bathing

If there are no dominant males in the school of Asian sheepshead wrasse, larger, older female wrasse will change sex. The transformed fish will use its bulbous head, which turns red in the breeding season, to gain control over other males, attracting a harem of females in the process. It will then mate with these females dozens of times a day. Best Wildlife Photos Of 2018 Bored Panda

20 Of The Cutest Puppies Ever  

Who knows what goes on in the head of a pet, but they are here to be our pets. It is literally what they are made for and they are that fully and completely. We lose sight of that as people. Our point in life is to use all of our time completely. There are no do-overs or restarts. You just have the time you have and you better use all of it being all the you possible. Life is for living. Don’t cheat yourself.

Meet Stuckie, a Mummified Dog Stuck Inside a Tree for Nearly 60 Years –   As the tree narrowed, the dog became stuck. He never caught his prey and no one pulled him out. Unable to escape, he remained in the accidental trap and perished. Twenty years later, loggers found the immobile canine. Instead of pulping the log, they donated it whole to Southern Forest World.

Never Yet Melted » Ramesses II’€™s 1976 Passport    Pharaoh Ramesses II’s Egyptian passport, issued in 1974 for passage to France nearly three millennia after his death. In order to leave the country, Egypt required anyone leaving the country, living or dead, to have the proper papers. Seemingly the first mummy to receive one, Ramesses had his occupation listed as “€œKing (deceased).”

5 of the richest companies in history   Known under the initials VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie), the Dutch East India Company would be worth about $7.8 trillion today. Founded in 1602, it accomplished globalist capitalism some 400 years before everyone else did.

Shinrin-yoku   This word translates to “forest-bathing,” which sums up the activity fairly well. It’s getting outdoors to de-stress, relax, and promote well-being. While the concept is familiar, we clearly don’t place enough importance on getting outdoors to honor it with its own term. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend about 87% of their time indoors, which is clearly too much. Meanwhile, being in nature is associated with a slew of benefits, like improving memory, reducing stress and anxiety, and even lowering inflammation. Scotland has the right idea—doctors in Shetland can now prescribe nature to their patients. 7 amazing Japanese words English needs to borrow

    I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the Daily Mail is a big fan of Bored Panda. Which is good. It gives them, and the reader, a well deserved break from their fifty or so Never-Trump articles.

    “…to gain control over other males, attracting a harem of females in the process. It will then mate with these females dozens of times a day.”

    Now there’s a set of behaviors I fully endorse!

    And to top it all of with a massive bonus, it would drive the FemiNazis batshit insane!!

    Tracking these data down and scrutinizing the “study” will keep me busy the better part of the day. Thank you, Gerard! Please note that it’s raining, or else I would be outside preparing to plant the fall garden.

    And fyi, 13% of 24 is 3 hours and 12 minutes, which in Mississippi in late July, or Minnesota in late January, seems like plenty of time outdoors.

    Poor Stucky. We forget that a fair percentage of animal deaths are accidental.

    Egyptian bureaucracy: the Absolute State! Can’t loan an artifact without some idjit bureaucrat getting his hands into it. ‘FI were the next president or secretary or whatever over this, in Egypt, I’d fire this guy but not without first parading him down the lobby, and ripping the gold buttons off of his suit jacket as he marches.

    Maps. You have to love em. They’ve taken on new forms since the digital revolution, but I especially love them when they re-organize our perspectives. My home seems to be in the least important spot on that oceanic map.

    You miss the point: those Phormerly Phemales are the dream and aspiration of every crewcut cigar-smoking dyke with a Diesel Dixie tattoo on her forearm, handrolled tampons and a kick-start vibrator. It ain’t about gettin all the chicks, it’s about puttin down the Patriarchy.

    Older dominant female Asian sheepshead wrasse — the new face of the Democrap Potty, already attracting female politicians from East to West coasts, Schumer and Booker honorarily included, a single school of fish, a single family of pornicians insisting on incesting.

    Happy Custodian Day: Take a moment to watch this once or twice. In this short clip you would probably be accurate in estimating that this simple and happy guy takes pride in his work and the people around him appreciate him for it.

    That clip put a smile on my face this early Sunday morning!
