I’m watching Into the Wild and I don’t understand why everyone is all about it because all I can think is “Fuckin’ white people, gettin’ bored and going off to die in the wilderness ‘cause they ain’t got better shit to do”.
Thanks bro, because thats why he did it, right?No, but this romantization of the wilderness combined with (rich) white guilt about the “decay” of civilization was a futile and misguided effort to find oneself. We see this all the time with shit like Eat Pray Love. You don’t see POC doing this and ask yourself why - that wouldn’t fly. POC hitch hiking? No one would pick them up. Poc having enough time and money to do this? Unlikely. Yeah, he gave away his inheritance but he could have come back to a comfortable life if he wanted. In a society where its hard for a poc to even land a job I don’t find this admirable at all. From a common sense standpoint, why would you go into the wilderness without knowin basic survival skills? To find yourself or some uncharted land? You know what that sounds a lot like? Colonization. And then this dude gets a movie made about his life, like some glorified Boy Scout who’s camping trip went wrong. Sorry, but that’s some white people shit right there. And don’t call me “bro” in hopes you can belittle my opinion of this matter. Don’t like it, don’t read it. Yeah, it was awful that he died but let’s call it what it is and stop romantisizing it. He’s not Therou (sp?). Nature isn’t yours to fuck with. Seriously white.people.shit. Done. Don’t even try to argue with me.

This isn’t a Photoshop job. These birds exist.
I was always attached to NYC pigeons, but now I really do see how inadequate they are. Man, I hate it when others are right instead of me.

This is a tardigrade, also known as a”water bear” or “moss piglet.” It is probably the coolest fucking microscopic life form that you’ve never heard of. Besides looking like miniature, animatronic gummy bears, tardigrades can live at temperatures close to absolute zero. Before you Google what absolute zero is, it’s -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit (lol no parenthetical Celsius conversion for the rest of the world haha). That’s pretty fucking cold. Anyways, tardigrades are tiny little living things that eat shit inside of mosses and whatnot. They can survive in any environment (including outer space), are able to go without water for up to 10 years, and are like a million bajillion years old (they originated in the Cretaceous period for you kids that understand whatever that means).
These are my favorite invertebrates ❤
A settlement located north-west of Clifftop Shacks in the Capital Wasteland. It is unusually full of trees and green plants. Birds can also be heard once inside the gate, suggesting that animal life has since been flourishing here.
Oasis was originally a mine, but after the Great War it became just another part of the wastes. This was until Harold, a special mutational product of the Forced Evolutionary Virus or FEV, arrived.
Harold possessed a tree growing on his head which he called Bob and eventually found himself overwhelmed by Bob and became rooted to the ground during his travels in the Capital Wasteland region after 2241.
Here, he was discovered by several people who began to worship him as a god, and a small and exclusive cult known as the Treeminders began to form in secrecy.
I totally flipped my shit when I realised this was THE Harold.
Black History Month fact #12
The Great Pyramid of Giza is an architectural representation of pi (3.14).
Each side of the Great Pyramid (Pi-ramid) of Giza is about 755 ft long. Each side of the Pyramid of Giza is NOT exactly the same because the pyramid was built to withstand the changing movements of the Earth. That is why the pyramids have yet to collapse.
The perimeter gives you the base. so 755ishft plus 755ishft times 2 gives you about 3020 sq.ft. The height of the Pyramid of Giza is 481.4 feet.
Take the perimeter of base of the pyramid, divide it by 2, then divide it by the height, and you get 3.14.
This fact shows that Ancient Egyptians, or Anu, didn’t just build things arbitrarily; everything had a purpose. Their engineers built structures in harmony with nature. It’s also interesting how we are taught about mathematics. Pi is mostly associated only with circles, but here we see how it fundamentally applies to other shapes as well.
The first architect of the pyramids was Imhotep, chancellor of the Pharoah Djoser of the 3rd dynasty in the 2600s BCE. Imhotep means “the one who comes in peace.”
Khufu, second pharoah of the 4th dynasty in 2500s BCE, built the Great Pyramid of Giza. Khufu’s full name was “Khnum-Khufu” which means “the god Khnum protects me.”
