"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
The Australian Reptile Park has released a 20-second clip of the newest tiny addition to its king brown snake family taking its first breath and people are losing their cool over how cute the baby reptile is.
The video was shot by the park’s head of reptiles and venom, Billy Collett, and captured the youngling in what looks like a mid-yawn. We wonder how long before this newborn loses its “cuteness” — king brown snakes are one of the longest venomous snakes in the world. (Source)
this is too amazing not to reblog
name one native american intellectual off the top of your head, name one native american actor or actress off the top of your head, name one native american senator, one native american news anchor, or an author or a tv personality or a singer or a poet or a comedian, name a single native american teacher you’ve had, can you? probably not
ok so now think of one native american cartoon character you know of or a sports team relating to native americans whether it’s their actual name or their team logo, or a town you live in or near with a “native” name bet a lot of these things came to you right away i bet you didn’t even have to think
needing native representation in media, education and government are not decoy issues, the commercialization and appropriation of native cultures are not decoy issues, the lack of native representation is institutional oppression at work
White people specifically need to reblog this, I don’t CARE if it makes you uncomfortable–that’s the point. Listen to Native voices about Native issues PLEASE

“MOTHER WHY HASN’T THE DUKE CALLED AGAIN?”
Someone painted this.
Someone out there sat down and said that they were going to paint this.
Somebody planned this out and then did it.
What a time to be alive.
actual portrait of me
Why does everyone say that they played someone ‘like a fiddle’? Fiddles are actually pretty difficult to play? Why not say ‘I played him like a recorder’? ‘Like a xylophone’? ‘Like a triangle’?
I think it’s got to do with detail and subtlety. If you play someone like a fiddle, that’s like, Iago or some shit. If you play someone like a triangle, you just told them there was free food somewhere when there wasn’t.
I’ve once read the following exchange:
“You played me!”
“Like the cheap kazoo you are.”
Which in my books is a pretty epic burn if we’re going to be making musical comparisons.
Writing that one down for future use tbh
