An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.

An octopus in Germany was annoyed by a bright light shining into his tank, so he climbed up over the rim and squirted water at it to short it

Fuckin’ octopuses, man.

Hello! I was wandering through my fic bookmarks and I happened upon Between the Shadow and the Soul, and I was wondering if you were planning on finishing it someday. It's just a curiosity, because it's one of my favourite thorki fics ever and you're a talented writer and I will always hold it dear. :)

Bless your socks! It’s really gratifying to see this question this week, as I’m in a bit of a writing funk because of how demanding my life is right  now, and what little time I have to work. So thanks for this!

I know I have been promising a new chapter for ages, and it’s all but done, I just have not been in the right mindset or had much time to work on it. (I also have a stupidly overdue gift fic for Sleepy Hollow that was a casualty.) My time is usually spread thin, (I have 3 little ones, and 2 have autism) but in addition to normal stuff my aunt fell ill and then died at the start of this year, and the ensuring grief and depression derailed most of my creativity, and when I started up again, I was working in RL stuff when I had time in my crazy schedule to write.

But! It’s been totally plotted, down the the last scene, and I can’t let it sit. So, my long winded answer is yes, I will finish the fic. Because I have it plotted. And I will endeavor to get the next bloody chapter up.

Nah, I’m just old. And tired. And sick. Please excuse the bags. #nomakeup #nofilter

My Uncle did my hair. New highlights :) also, I look old in this picture. Maybe it’s the specs.

History Lesson || Why Women Of Color In The 1800s Were Banned From Wearing Their Hair Out In Public 
BGLH writes:
“Did you know that in late 18th century Louisiana, black and multiracial women were ordered to cover their hair in public?” My sister asked me.
“WOW. Really?” I replied.
I’d probably heard of this in one of my black studies classes in undergrad, but who remembers everything they’ve been taught? Besides, this information felt instantly relevant and I was absolutely intrigued.
With a little digging I found that there was in fact a “law” of sorts that demanded women of color in Louisiana to cover their hair with a fabric cloth starting in 1789 as a part of what was called the Bando du buen gobierno (Edict for Good Government).  What these rules were meant to do was try to curtail the growing influence of the free black population and keep the social order of the time. The edict included sections specifically about the changing of certain “unacceptable” behaviors of the free black women in the colony including putting an end to what he and others believed to be the overly ostentatious hairstyles of these ladies which drew the attention of white men, and the jealousy of white women. These rules are called the “Tignon Laws” A tignon (pronounced “tiyon”) is a headdress.
