A bunch of things I found interesting, amusing, cute, neat, or informative.
one time my uncle bought a tumbleweed so every time one of his students made a bad joke he could roll it across the classroom
Can my field research question just be “which lemur is fluffiest and softest?” because i just want to touch all of them
Yes. Yes you can.
"Potential adaptive values and consequences for pelage density and quality among Lemuriformes"
(It fits rather nicely with this open source piece on dental combs.)
Fluency in Academese for the win.
what happens if u put a werewolf on the moon is a great question probably the best question ever asked
Greetings, Aperture employees, Cave Johnson here with some good news, and some bad news. Good news is, our experiments with portaling a werewolf onto the lunar surface produced very clear, and very immediate results! Go team!
Bad news is, those results were that the poor guy died of hypothermia and asphyxia within seconds, same as all the other test subjects we sent up there. Apparently lycanthropy does not grant one an immunity to zero-atmosphere environments as I had suspected. My assistant, Greg, tells me that I was actually thinking of vampires there, and not werewolves, so…that one’s on me.
However, this brings me to some more good news: Any test subjects who had been quarantined in Test Chamber 32A due to sudden cases of vampirism, you’re in luck, because we’ve got a new test ready just for you! Just hustle on over towards the lone portal surface on the east wall there while we move the airtight paneling into place to begin the test.
Anyway, that’s that…now get back to work, everyone! Except for you, over there by the coffee machine. Break room rules clearly state a 15-minute max, and you’ve been in there for 20. You know the drill. Box, stuff, door, parking lot, adios, you’re fired.
Cave Johnson, we’re done here.
my mom tried to teach our goats to pee in one certain spot by giving them treats when they’d pee in that spot
they think that now whenever they pee they get a treat
so whenever they see my mom
laughed for a solid five minutes
behaviorism gone wrong
Pavlov is laughing in his grave
