Crows can be so floofy, expecially when they are babies

Does anyone have a scan of the Hierophant? 

Do not remember where I got these images. They were saved to my desktop.

Laurent Gongora attached 24 metal elements to the rock behind the Cascade de Vaucoux in France’s mountainous Massif Central region to “redraw” the shape of the waterfall.

Ultimate grand supreme? You should get over yourself

rarabattleaxe:

I struggle to understand why it’s so frowned upon when one has a high opinion of themselves.

Like, why is it a massive fucking crime to admit that you like yourself?

It’s obviously much more of a desirable trait to put oneself down, which is such a stupid social concept.

But sorry, I ain’t about that life. ✋

People should stop calling themselves ugly, and start admitting that they think they’re pretty or cute….because I *know* you think you are, and don’t say you don’t because why in the fuck would you post pictures of yourself if you 100% hated them….

There’s something awesome about a thing that’s so cute, it transcends cuteness to become nightmarishly creepy. That’s precisely the case with these impressively freaky pears, photographed last year at a supermarket in Beijing, China.

The pears are shaped like this by placing them inside special molds when they’re still very small. As they grow they fill the mold and take on its shape. They were marketed at the grocery store as “happy/joyful doll pears,” but we think they look like they’re patiently waiting for you to try taking a bite out of them, at which point they’ll start screaming bloody murder, or worse, turn you into a creepy pear-doll-person too.

They look like buddha pears to me
