“The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it."

Chuck Palahniuk

"Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

Frida Kahlo
this always happens at the beginning—
you begin to think of the possibiities.
it’s not just being touched by them that makes your belly quiver—
it’s the kind of life you might have together.
it’s wondering if you’ll be that young hip
couple who go to rome and venezuela
and take avant garde pictures to post on facebook.
it’s wondering if you’ll be the couple
that detaches themselves from reality
and lives within one another’s creases—
who wake up and talk all day and reside
in each other’s softness, drinking tea by a fireside
somewhere in the countryside.
or you could be that couple in the city,
who go to coffee shops, who hold hands
under umbrellas, who surprise each other
with tickets to the next best west end show
and don’t give a soft damn about who’s watching.
you might also be that tired couple with bags
beneath your eyes. you’ll be standing at the
back of a queue in some supermarket in
some city with a toddler who won’t stop eating
the food you haven’t paid for yet.
and if you can imagine, with all of these
scenarios, that you’ll look at this person and
remember that quivering feeling in the bones of your bones
and that aching in your belly,
then you stay. you tell them i don’t care where we’re
going baby, but i’ll race you there

(INDIGNANT HUFFING) NOT ALL M……ale lions

the more i think about it, the weirder this comment seems. how does this man know that being a male lion is more stressful than being a female lion. has he lived as both a female and male lion before. is this man an Animorph

I

male lions rights activist

as a big cat fanatic and a zoo veteran: 
male lions are lazy fucks. they CHOOSE to fight cos they’re BORED.

As a professional Ethologist who specializes in apex predator and primate behavior, I can fully support this lazy lion notion.See this gorgeous guy? 
This is Zero, the most photographed lion in National Geographic history (so I’ve been told). While his huge frame and two-toned mane make him an intimidating sight, he is essentially the biggest baby I observed while in South Africa.
You would hear these deep roaring moans echo across the reserve… and it was Zero, whining for the girls (Maggie and Lisa) to bring him food. The lazy bum would just roll around in the river bed moaning and groaning until the females would show up with a kill. 
Sure, he could fight if there happened to be a rival male in the area. And his ‘mock charge’ display was intimidating enough to keep just about everyone* out of his way… but 99% of the time this guy was all about moaning (for food), mating, and mane-flips.
* - The only animal not run off by Zero’s display was a honey badger, who - true to form - did not care.

I love this post.

I go to a women’s college. We have a walkway where bricks can be purchased by alumnae. Most just say names or class years/mascots. But this one. This one is special. It speaks to me.

Do you think its possible
that some people
are born to give
more love
than they will ever
get back
in return?

52 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war.
The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that World War 3 had begun, and 2 of the officers agreed to ‘blast the warships out of the water’. Arkhipov refused to agree – unanimous consent of 3 officers was required and thanks to him, the world was saved from being scarred badly.
His story is finally being told the BBC is airing a documentary on it.

might just save the god damn world.

The Disney Channel used to air these little shorts about geniuses and historical people. At the end Genie would say, “Great minds don’t think alike. They think for themselves.”
