This is another info graphic I did advocating for snakes. When spring comes around snakes start to come out of hibernation and sometimes will end up in people’s backyards. Snakes around this time are killed left and right, whether it is completely harmless or venomous. I want to urge people to learn about snakes and also to leave snakes alone!

Snakes don’t “hibernate” actually they’re just less out and active

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

Black Girls Rock: Twin Dancers Are Accepted to American Ballet Theatre’s Prestigious Summer Program

Twin sisters Nia and Imani Lindsay have been accepted into the prestigious American Ballet Theatre’s (ABT) Summer Program on scholarship. The young girls have been walking since 8 months and have been dancing ever since. At 10-years old the two are trained in jazz, ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, and tap dance. They are also fluent in English, Spanish and French.

While they reside in Canada they made a trip to New York City to audition for ABT’s Summer Intensive program and found time to sit down with Cipriana of Urban Bush Babes to discuss their big news, bullying, their beautiful natural hair and why they love Misty Copeland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ply4Rjz_UZM

Such an inspiration! I am so insanely proud of these girls.

booping snakes: endless fun

oh goooood it`s so cuteeee

also: can someone explain what the nose hole things are for??? cuz their tongues do the smelling … cuz the snakes my brother has don’t have those …

The ridge of holes are, I’m told by my fiancee, ‘heat pits’. They detect infrared radiation, so snakes can ‘see’ heat.

FUCKING AWESOME

I hold a galaxy in a jar
An entire universe in my hands
Shining with life and beauty

I hold a galaxy in a jar
Swirling within its confines
Desperate to share its inspiration

I hold a galaxy in a a jar
Beauty that has long been forgotten
Inspiration that has been ignored

I hold a galaxy in a jar
Full of hope and wonder
Containing potential of a wonderful future

I hold a galaxy in a jar
And I pour all that I am into the world 
And put the galaxy into you

why do so many people think spiders are evil and out to get you
look at this fucking nerd run away in an overly dramatic cartoonish way just because something touched its butt

It’s hard to tell due to the grainy image quality, but that sort of looks like a wolf spider with an abdomen covered in babies.

"AH, something touched my butt! EW!"
