WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS
*puts up bat signal for science side of tumblr*
I read that this is bioluminescent plankton.
nah man that’s a tiny kaiju
This is actually the bioluminescence from an ostracod, which is a kind of plankton. The fish in the gif is trying to eat it, but the ostracod bursts out this light to scare its predator and cause it to spit the plankton out. You can watch the video that this is from over here.
Thank you science side of tumblr!
Duet - Glen Keane
Here’s Glen Keane’s short by itself. This is so so beautiful - make your screen as BIG as possible.
McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.

CATCH IT BEFORE IT ESCAPES
Where’s a Master Ball when you need one?
I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
Here’s the first part of an amazing interview. Thank you so much to martininamerica for this powerful bit.
