Tiger gets a bad baby tooth removed
When a tiger’s first response to having a tooth yanked is not a roar, snarl or swipe with claws, but a test nibble to check that its mouth works as well as it suddenly feels, it speaks volumes about how much the bad tooth* must have hurt.
*You can see, briefly, that it’s black and nasty on the inner side. Yuck.
I’m just awed by the amount of trust in this gif. That tiger totally trusts that the human is going to help with that scary metal object on an already painful area and the human totally trusts that the tiger is just test nibbling and not chomping down on his arm. I flinch when a house cat comes at me too fast and these two don’t even hesitate to trust each other.
Alexandre Isailoff: Sappho, 1889.
I must admire that Sappho wrote love poetry to women that was so gay, they named the sexuality after her.

Anonymous asked: It sounds like he may also have a personality disorder like BPD? People who suddenly seem to switch, or make people feel like they have to be on eggshells around them usually don't mean to be that way but simply can't help it. If you respond with aggression and it makes him worse, or if the reaction changes and isn't consistent then my guess is its a personality disorder and not just you.
We’ve considered the possibilities, including bipolar- however, in my experience people have displayed the behavior without any other condition besides assholism.
I’ve made allowances. I’ve taken it lying down in hopes that he would just chill. I’ve listened to my friend saying “Sorry about him” and “He’s getting better”. The fact of the matter is, when I mean triggering, I’m not being dramatic; it is physically, mentally, and emotionally frightening and difficult to be in his presence sometimes, and I will no longer stand for it.
Thank you, anon, but as they say “a sad past only explains why a villain is a villain, it does not excuse it.”
I have a friend. More like family, mostly because im stuck with him- we openly acknowledge that we dont like eachother, and often keep to our side of the table at dinner and ignore eachother’s existence. However, he is still a part of my family here at uni, and sometimes his behavior is very triggering to me. He’ll be unpredictable, in a good mood one moment and then pissy or even in a rage the next. He’ll slam things for no reason (which frightens me, especially when loud noises are accompanied by anger) and just generally be an aggressive, rude asshole.
I, as per my natural defense mechanisms, will respond with either humor in an attempt to lighten the situation (which doesn’t work because he doesn’t understand humor) or with matching agression. At one point he was yelling at me across a table in a restaurant in front of our collective families- over a complete misunderstanding.
I realized something just now. talking doesnt work. Mediating doesnt work. Ignoring doesnt work. But I have other resources, and i think that this is the point where i have been pushed to used them. I’m going to see how an ice binding works first. If that doesnt cool him down, ill progressively up the ante.
I am not a scared little girl. I am a fucking strong woman, and I am a witch. I will no longer compromise.
What if people who have “near death” experiences are stillborn children? D:
And what if hallucinations were memories from a past life?
What if dreams are our memories from past lives? O_O
What if Déjà vu is a past life experience that we relive for a moment? O_o
This post has fucked my mind more than any other post I have ever seen on Tumblr… Seriously you guys. Fucking. Seriously. D:I’ve always liked the idea of rebirth, it makes everything seem more connected, one big cycle
oh my gosh. brendon. no. i love you
Holy shit, what if you’re crying when you’re born cause you didn’t want to die from your last life?
STOP ADDING THINGS. I’M GOING TO CRY
I was born with my eyes wide open and I didn’t cry…what does that mean? It was a surprise or something?
Click for corvid skull sculpture turnaround gif. This is bisqued, unglazed clay.
The inscription inside reads (very roughly from latin to english): “Remember mortality, and drink from immortality”. I wanted it to be an understated piece with hidden meaning, so I tucked the words away in a little “locked” chamber. It’s a reminder to do great things. Since there’s not much for scale, I can tell you that the rounded part of the skull is almost as big as my head.
I just pulled it out of the kiln today after glazing and it looks gorgeous. I’ll post more pictures as soon as I can.
