"Are you lonely?"
"It’s been a lifetime of loneliness. I decided early on that I better get used to it. I go to movies by myself. If the movie theater is completely empty, I’m even happier. I learned early on that if I wanted to go to restaurants, I better learn to go by myself. One benefit to being big is that people don’t bother you. I’m shocked that you came up to me. Nobody’s ever done that. When I started to go to therapy, it took me several sessions before I even spoke a word. I’d just sit there and cry. And honestly, you caught me on a tough day. I was sitting here feeling really bad about myself. Because I went to the doctor today, and I was sure that I’d lost weight. But I’d gained some."
Sometimes I think I am going to be alone (romantically) for the rest of my life…and more and more often I think that if that happens it would be ok
"I found him in the trash. I named him Shadow because he followed me everywhere."
how game of thrones should end
#khal drogo just #descends from the heavens #on a flaming stallion #punches everyone in the face #and sits his fine dothraki ass down on the iron throne #until daenerys shows up #then he stands #dusts the seat off a bit #and steps aside for his khalessi
At first I was like “but Darnerys…” And then the hashtags made it all better!
A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN
yes hello i am here to learn geometries
That crow is more prepared than some of my students.
You’ve all just like, completely skipped over the possibility that this crow has seen people using pens in this room, found one, and is trying to return it. There’s been videos of crows picking up sweet wrappers and stuff and placing them in bins after seeing humans put their litter in bins. I really do believe that this crow is trying to return the pen and that is ADORABLE AS HELL.
THEY ARE SO SMART I LOVE THEM
Crows are thought to be self aware by some scientists. Its perfectly possible the crow wants to return the pen to humans. Knowing it belongs to humans.
Corvids. Who KNOWS. :)
Another cool crow deal: Once, when trying to assess if crows could reason and use tools, scientists had two crows who didn’t know each other each take a wire from a table (one was hooked, one was straight) and try to grab meat from a bottle with it. The crows could see each other, though they had separate bottles. Only the straight wire worked for this, so they hypothesized that if crows could reason, the second trial would have the two crows fighting over the straight wire. The second trial started and, to the surprise of the scientists, the two crows both went for the bent wire, one held it down and the other unbent it. They both got meat out of their bottles. They came to a peaceful solution without verbal communication. Crows are probably smarter than we are.
I once saw an experiment in which the crows had the possibility of getting food from a little machine just by recognizing/memorizing and selecting specific images on a computer screen.
And while on average the dogs had to play the game about 20/30 times (i think??? don’t quote me on that) before becoming familiar with the system the crows were able to understand it almost immediately just like a human child would.
And yeah, they do seem self aware. There are a bunch of eyewitness to something that could be described as a crow funeral. Apparently it’s kinda eerie because a bunch of crows just place themselves on a tree near their dead ‘buddy’ and stay there in silence for a couple of minutes before flying away without a sound
Crows are actually human souls
Ugh I love them so much
This is how I felt at the beginning of Dangerous Liaisons
