Every woman has mastered this. We are actually born with this skill.
You level up when you can do it with long sleeves
I was the only girl on an all-boys varsity soccer team. I had to change on the bus during away games because I didn’t have a locker room at other schools. I was not uncomfortable with that, actually. I did what I had to.
But one day I noticed that like three guys who were seniors were just staring at me as I did this and I must have shot them a dirty look because one of them (who is actually a family friend) was like “I’m sorry, I don’t mean to stare, but we’re still trying to figure out how the hell girls do that” and I just felt bad. They just want to get their girlfriend’s bra off without losing an eye and we can remove the whole thing like fucking wizards
i told my mom about this post and she went ‘wait, you can do it with long sleeves? um, i’ll be right back’
I’M GOING TO SCREAM, I WAS LEAVING THE WALMART AND I JUST HEAR SOMEONE SCREECH “DIRK” AND I LOOK AROUND AND THIS GUY IS WEARING A JAKE SHIRT POINTING AT MY SHIRT AND WE STOOD THERE FOR ABOUT TWO MINUTES YELLING “JAKE!!!” “DIRK!!!!”
I’VE NEVER BEEN MORE HAPPY OMG
ah the mating call of the homestuck
how does it get on the ball
Vampire finch (Geospiza difficilis septentrionalis)
Vampire finches are called vampire finches because they’re little finchy bloodsuckers, just in case you guys were thinking they got that name ironically or something. Nope. They drink blood. It’s not obligate, like vampire bats or vampire moths or vampire dogs, and most of their diet is composed of normal-bird stuff like seeds and bugs. It probably got its start grooming ticks and other ectoparasites off boobies.
Scientists think this because the boobies will sit there and put up with it. Scientists also probably think this because there’s a tick-eater in Africa that “helps” giraffes in roughly the same way, except that it still does eat ticks while it’s at it. It just will also make the tick-bites worse to get more blood or open old sores if there aren’t enough ticks.
There’s not enough fresh water on Wolf and Darwin Islands, where these birds do their birdy thing, so their substantially liquid diet is likely an adaptation that helps them deal with this.

Above: Vampire finch vampirizing a booby’s egg in a super-dignified and really well-thought-out way. Eventually this will get the egg close enough to some rocks that this weird little maneuver will break it open.
Vampire finches feed on any Nazca or blue-footed booby who’s handy, either by pecking directly at the skin or by biting a hole in a blood-feather. They’ll also steal eggs from boobies with poorly prepared or non-existent nesting sites. These are usually inexperienced, first-time nesting couples, and the finches will gang up and roll eggs out of the clutch. It’s hard to think too poorly of the move, even though it’s a really dickish one, because look at them.
They are tiny, and they barely know what they’re doing with this. They’re like drunken frat boys trying to steal a triceratops skull.
lava really pisses me off cuz like
i know it could melt my face off but then i see a picture like this and
i want to dip my hands in it
you know what i always thought was kinda neat

"mommy’s busy go ask megatron"
Here are 10 photos (out of 22) from my series Racial Microaggressions. I have asked my friends on the Fordham University Lincoln Center campus to write down an instance of racial microaggression they have faced on a poster for me to take a picture of them.
