today there was a question on a test that was asking like “What is interesting about courtship behavior in scorpionflies?”

and i could not for the life of me remember what it was that was interesting about scorpionfly courtship behavior so i wrote “they bring in a real scorpion, just for kicks”

this is a real life decision that i made and have to live with

Woman speaks out against misogynistic abuse and is met with misogynistic abuse from men who believe misogynistic abuse doesn’t exist and that she should stop making them look bad.

What. Is. Her. Name.

Thanks to a follower for finding this: Her name is Venus Green.
From this article: 
In July 2009, Green’s grandson, Tallie, was shot and wounded. Tallie said he was shot at a convenience store, but police insisted it happened inside Green’s house and that the shooter was either Tallie or Green.
"Police kept questioning him. They wouldn’t let the ambulance attendant treat him," Green said. "So, I got up and said, ‘Sir, would you please let the attendants treat him? He’s in pain,’" Green said.
Green said the officer said to her, “Oh, you did it, come on, let’s go inside. I’ll prove where that blood is. You did it.”
Police wanted to go the basement, where Tallie lived, but Green refused on the basis that the police did not have a warrant.
"I said, ‘No, you don’t have a warrant. You don’t go down in my house like that. He wasn’t shot in here.’" Green said the officer replied, "I’m going to find that gun. I’m going to prove that you did it."
A struggle ensued between a male officer and Green.
"He dragged me, threw me across the chair, put handcuffs on me and just started calling me the ‘b’ name. He ridiculed me," Green said.
An officer went into the basement and Green locked him inside.
"She locked the door, the basement door. She basically took matters into her own hands," Nilson said.
"This was my private home, and if I latched it, that was my prerogative because he had no search warrant to go in my basement. So, I had to right to latch it," Green said.
Green said she suffered a separated shoulder in the scuffle, and she sued the Police Department for assault and violations of her rights.
"I was once a block watcher, department head of a high school. (I’ve) been around education for over 50 years. (I’m a) law-abiding citizen, I’ve never been arrested, I paid my taxes, owned my home, my husband died 34 years ago. (I) raised my son and I have been brutally abused," Green said. "I feel like the Police Department needs to go back to school."

imageshe’s a small black/white/orange tortoiseshell/calico, no collar, friendly but skittish, distinctive triangular spot on her nose like a jack-o-lantern. she was lost near the corner of 20th and mission street. she has a funny meow that sounds like she’s gargling.

if you’ve seen her, please get in touch with me through my submit box!

i started interning in a lab at my school where they’re researching parasitoid wasps, even though parasites kinda freak me out, and i told my mom about it in an email and later i was thinking about how i would explain to her the difference between “parasite” and “parasitoid”

so i was gonna be like “if a vampire drinks your blood (and you don’t become a vampire bc that doesn’t work with this analogy), it’s a parasite. but if a vampire keeps drinking your blood until you have no more blood and you dead, it’s a parasitoid. so basically you can survive parasites but not parasitoids”

and then i was thinking “oh right, mom likes anne rice novels, vampires are parasites, this truly is the perfect metaphor” but then i realized. i remembered. my mother literally named me after anne rice vampires. i’m afraid of parasites but also named after (fictional) parasites. or are they parasitoids? I DON’T KNOW, I HAVEN’T READ ANY ANNE RICE NOVELS. did i end up working in this bug lab because of my fate??? my fate to always encounter parasites because of my namesakes’ unseen influence, even though parasites are horrifying??? IS THIS MY CURSE??????????

nah i mean i’m not usually too put off by spoilers in the first place, plus i have tumblr savior on my pc, but in this case it was a spoiler of a thing that hadn’t even been translated yet? which is pretty uncool to post tbh… but it was just tumblr’s fault for recommending it to me :’)

there was a spoiler on my dash and i ignored it at first and then scrolled up to see who posted it so i could be peeved at them

AND IT WAS A RECOMMENDED POST. BY A STRANGER.
