If I offend or upset you, I am completely open to criticism. I really appreciate interacting with you all, and if I screw up, you don't owe me anything, but I would be grateful for the opportunity to learn. I am well aware that I do insensitive or just bad things at times. I am human, but being flawed doesn't make my behavior ok. I promise that I will listen carefully, not get defensive, and do work.

important crustacean news! Ghost crabs use teeth in their stomach to growl at their enemies
www.newscientist.com/article/2215997-ghost-crabs-use-teeth-in-their-stomach-to-growl-at-their-enemies/

"X-ray fluoroscopy videos revealed that the rasping sounds coincided with the movements of the teeth in their foreguts, known as gastric mills"

the article also notes other mechanisms ghost crabs use to signal each other–maybe the kind of nuanced sociality needed living close by each other in burrows

The sky looks like underwater right now

The wizards glared, but their feline familiars purred, curled into each other in their little nest, all whiskers and fur.

They had been rivals since day one, and that was not about to stop now.

Except their familiars had fallen in love, and a litter was due any day now.

So for the sake of that, the wizards shared a residence, and tried to out 'grandparent' the other.

The familiars were fine with this, as long as nobody yelled.

What leads to the belief that traditionally male clothes are gender neutral?

Like its never a mixture of feminine and masculine. Feminine is always seen as the outlier. Trousers are gender neutral apparently.

The Seikilos Epitaph is the world's oldest surviving complete musical composition (including notation), from the 1st or 2nd century AD. This Ancient Greek musical notation was found inscribed on a memorial monument in a Hellenistic area of what is now Turkey.

An English translation of the lyrics:

"While you live, shine
have no grief at all
life exists only for a short while
and Time demands his due."

And this same sentiment has carried on in song through to the 20th century:

This weather mostly sucks. At least it's still bright out. Hopefully we'll get a bit more sun tomorrow for the batteries.

When I was in elementary school our teacher told us to pick our favorite ocean mammal

I picked the blue whale, because I had recently learned it was the largest thing that ever lived, and that seemed cool

Then she told us we would be drawing our chosen animals

tfw you're a Cuban greater funnel-eared bat and assumed extinct but really you've been evolving in complete isolation from other bats for 50 million years and then some scientists start bothering you

Don’t convince others you’re not a racist. Convince others not to be racists.

Hey folks with insomnia- and I mean "not getting more than 8 hours of sleep a WEEK" insomnia:

What do you guys take, if anything? Suggestions to help? My roommate is suffering BIG TIME. They haven't gotten more than 6 hours of sleep in nine days.

Someone asked for good things to read that aren't opaquely neoliberal trash on race

a thread of free resources:

So since I shared that article on ICE I have a lot of white people in my mentions saying this is parallel to the Holocaust, etc (I say white cause y’all are the only ones who name everything but your whiteness in your bios)

True.......

but have you ever heard of the police blacksites in Chicago? The freedom square protests? the reason why Chicago public schools now have a mandate to teach the John Burge cases in schools?

I suggest you look it up

If I somehow ever end up with inheritance or a solid income stream, at least half of that is going straight to trans folks, the lgbtq+ community, and poc /establishing a scholarship fund in my backwards-ass hometown for those folks.
