I feel really bad for the sea lion that Seaworld forces to approach his/her natural predator.
Is it bad that I’m laughing extremely hard at how the orca just annihilates the sea lon in the 2nd gif?
all I can hear is NYOOM
You wanna know something cool? Recent studies of orcas seem to show that during the seal breeding season, they knowingly limit their intake of seals. In fact, there are documented cases of orcas gently grabbing seal pups and pulling them into shore to keep them safe from being eaten.
Why? You might wonder.
The case studies seem to say that the orcas know that no baby seals growing up means less seals next year. They are so intelligent that they’re aware of their own impact as a predatory species on their prey and actively work to conserve the number of that prey species for the future. Maybe we could learn something about moderation and conservation from these animals.
They should really be granded nonhuman personhood like they were in India.
Intelligence of Orcas. Well said.
I WAS GOING TO PUT THIS IN THE TAGS, BUT HOLY SHIT I HAVE JUST SEEN THE METAPHOR!!
There was a calm moment of “…Wait. Did she just metaphorically pick up masculinity and leave femininity behind in its place?” And I was impressed with that symbolism.
But then the metaphor got better. Because here, Mulan is swapping one for the other. Yet, by the end, when she comes home at the end, her father tucks the flower behind her ear and then her man shows up with the helmet— BECAUSE MULAN IS AWESOME AND KICK ASS AND SHE HAS BOTH FEMININITY AND MASCULINITY AND BEING COMPLETELY ONE OR THE OTHER TOTALLY DOESN’T SUIT HER.
ALSO, at the end of the movie, to defeat Shan Yu, she uses the fan, a feminine symbol to wrench the sword, a masculine symbol, form his hands and save the day. :)
Disney can be surprisingly brilliant at times.
The above are some of the reasons this is one of my favorite Disney movies. See also: the “princess” rescuing the “prince”
-You play Smaug, you play the dragon.
-Yeah, the dragon, which is great thing to be able to say.
-And especially you do voiceover.
What if colleges only made you pay the percentage of tuition that you failed, so if you got an average of 86 for the year you’d only have to pay 14% of the tuition, but if you got a 94 then it’d only be 6%. That way we’d be rewarding the success and even if you flunked the semester, you still wouldn’t have to pay for ALL of the tuition
You are the future.

Jensen’s shoulders are one of life’s gifts.
Why does he insist on hiding them beneath stupid clothing?
I either have a fiercely strong opinion or I don’t give a fuck at all
how do boys look good without makeup
Because society hasn’t told boys they look bad without it
does that look like the face of a man who cannot play the drums for 24 hours straight
“Okay your job is to keep the pandas in their pen.”
