Palaeontologists really like bones. I guess you could say they dig them
The human brain is an amazing organ. It functions 24 hours a day from the day we are born and only stops when we are taking an exam or fall in love.
This is a dark house, very big.
I made it myself,
Cell by cell from a quiet corner,
Chewing at the grey paper,
Oozing the glue drops,
Whistling, wiggling my ears,
Thinking of something else.
It has so many cellars,
Such eelish delvings!
U an round as an owl, I see by my own light.
Any day I may litter puppies
Or mother a horse.
My belly moves. I must make more maps.
These marrowy tunnels!
Moley-handed, I eat my way.
All-mouth licks up the bushes
And the pots of meat.
He lives in an old well,
A stoney hole. He’s to blame.
He’s a fat sort.
Pebble smells, turnipy chambers.
Small nostrils are breathing.
Little humble loves!
Footlings, boneless as noses,
It is warm and tolerable In the bowel of the root.
Here’s a cuddly mother.

This is my ruler and notepad tattoo. I believe that tattoos can be used for functionality as well as memory. I’m a designer, so I use the ruler for buttons, zippers, and trim widths. Usually the notepad has an address or to-do list on it. :)
You know what, this is actually fucking genius.
if i had a dollar for every time an adult asked me about college then i’d have enough money to pay for college
The Expeditions Trilogy
Don’t lie, these were three of your favorite movies in childhood. Unfortunately none of them had great financial success at the box office, which left them as stand alone films. Apparently had El Dorado done well there were going to be more Miguel and Tulio films featuring them visiting other marvels of civilization conducting various con jobs. Atlantis was going to have an animated TV series and Disney World attractions that got scuttled after the movie performed poorly. Treasure Planet apparently almost got a sequel too but that’s all we know about that. Thematically, all they have in common are expeditions to hidden places for legendary secrets, but dammit if they don’t fit together perfectly. One thing is for certain though, no one should have to watch Atlantis: Milo’s Return.
The Road to El Dorado (2000)
Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)
Treasure Planet (2002)
A dead bat still hanging from the ceiling of a cave.
Fun fact: When the muscles in a bat’s feet/legs relax, the foot closes. (Contrast to our hands, which open when the controlling muscles relax.) This is why bats can sleep—and die—upside down.
I think ranetree's statement on human hands is a little bit misleading because not every muscle in our hands relax when we open our hands. Human hands open when extensor muscles ( on the back of the hand and along the outer side of the forearm to the elbow) flexwhile the flexors (in your palm and along the inner side of the forearm) relax.
To build on the fun fact: Chiropterans (i.e. bats) and avians have evolutionarily converged upon the tendon-locking mechanism in their feet because of similar selective pressures. They need to spend the least amount of energy possible while in their resting position - hanging for bats and perching for birds. A somewhat analogous thing happens in our hands when we completely relax them - the fingers curl in towards the palm without any muscles actively controlling them.
