The opposite of albinism called melanism, a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black.

nature & real talk

Holy shit that’s majestic.

Yes, the powers of Photoshop are indeed majestic

So far the closest thing we have to melanistic lions are the black-mained Asiatic lions (Panthera leo persica), and it’s not known whether lions are even able to be melanistic!

The only melanistic big cats we know of are jaguars…

…and leopards.

We do, however, know of abundism in other big cats! What’s abundism you may ask? Well, it’s basically when places that normally have a lot of melanin end up producing an abundance of it. So an abundistic tiger looks like this:

And an abundistic cheetah looks like this:

And just for good measure, here’s an abundistic leopard:

This has been a PSA!

I never see masses of whites trying to move into 3rd world nations and demand to be ‘natives’ or the government of that land hint at the same.

Embarrassing

That point in a piece of fanfiction where you can tell something embarrassing is about to happen so you start fucking around on tumblr because you’re a huge baby with a crippling overabudance of empathy.

I do this with every media I consume. I pause movies and have to walk around and prepare myself for second-hand embarrassment sometimes.

This is mE

Secondhand embarrassment. I’ve got it. 

I sometimes mute movies or tv shows to avoid it. Especially if I know it’s coming. 

I TOTALLY DO THIS.

That’s old man jenkins

issues i have with the children’s tv show franklin

cljavjr:

donrickles:

  • all of franklin’s friends have names like “bear” and “owl” but franklin’s name is franklin.
  • all of franklin’s friends parents have names like “mr. otter” and “mrs. otter.” does that mean that otter’s name is otter otter?
  • bear has a sister named beatrice bear which means that bears name is definitely bear bear.

consider: everyone in the show is actually referring to everyone else by last name as a sign of deference. bear is called bear but his sister is called by first name because bear is older and therfore requires more respect. the reason franklin is called by first name is because no one respects him

PSA: journalists aren’t supposed to put names in the headlines if the person isn’t a public figure. It’s not a matter of maliciously not giving credit

As someone in a journalism course, I can confirm this 100%. It’s like, one of the first things they teach us.

Why?

Because headlines aren’t supposed to be too long and by including a name you’re taking up space that could get people interested in the story.

That’s why public figures names are included because they draw people in, but other people’s names don’t have that recognition

Thank you! This was starting to drive me insane. Unless you are as well known as Beyoncé your name won’t appear in the headline.

Stop yelling at copy editors!

I was literally about to write a post on this. 

I keep seeing people complaining that individuals aren’t getting credit due to their names not being in the headline, but it really just is a policy centred around being pithy to generate story interest and nothing more. 

Plus…the person’s name is in the article if you actually read it.
