Mesembs - Gibbaeum comptonii
Also known as Living Stones and Ice Plant, seedlings of the South African dwarf succulent Gibbaeum comptonii (Caryophyllales - Aizoaceae) grow in clumps characterized by pairs of leaves mostly globular. The sizes of the leaves of a same pair are sometimes different. The asymmetry of the leaf pairs is a distinguishing characteristic of the genus. Flowers are magenta.
Sometimes this species is considered synonym to Gibbaeum heathii.
They’re freaking adorable!
I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.
Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.
Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening
Does it bother anyone else that there are parts of your life you don’t remember? You have done and said things that you don’t even know about anymore. That means you don’t even have the right perception of yourself because you don’t even fully know who you are. However, something that you’ve forgotten about could be a prominent memory in somebody else’s mind. It trips me out.
We all make stupid mistakes and say stupid things now and again, but we wouldn’t all qualify as stupid.maybe we forget those things because they aren’t who we are.
Since Halloween is coming up soon, I figured I would try to make a small guide on how to tell if something is a jumpscare video or not. Please keep in mind that this isn’t 100% accurate, and the best thing to do is use your own judgement.
That said, usually a video contains a jumpscare if:
- It tells you to look closely or to turn the music up, or already has small/poor quality images and quiet music
- If it’s on Youtube, the comments and ratings will either have poor reactions (ex. “wtf is wrong with you!!! that scared my (insert younger family member here)”) or be disabled.
- The most recently circulated one (a flashing/screaming image of Jeff the Killer) is a .swf file, so if you’re sent a suspicious link, hover over it. If it ends in .swf, it’s best to just not open it.
- The most popular jumpscares are “Relaxing Car Ride,” “Scary Maze,” “Subliminal Images and Music,” “Michael Jackson Ghost,” “Kikia,” and “Where’s Waldo?”
Also keep in mind that Youtube now enables automatically-repeating videos, meaning that some screamers may repeat themselves over and over until you close the window (in non-Youtube instances, the site may even make it to where you can’t close the window, meaning that you or someone else has to unplug your computer).
Someone messaged me recently about tinyurls, and how people have been using them to send people jumpscares. If you have a concern regarding a tinyurl, add preview. to the beginning of the url (including the period!) so that it will show you what the link leads to! for example, if the link was “tinyurl.com/6c8nryl”, you would type “preview.tinyurl.com/6c8nryl” (for those who are worried, the url leads to cuteroulette)
Again, stay safe!
I want to see more pictures of the people I talk to on here. I want to see your pretty faces. I want to see your smiles and funny faces. Your happy and sad faces. It’s how we know each other as real people out there. It’s how we start conversations.
I want to see you week to week Or as often as you want to share your pictures. We are all changing slightly every day and I like seeing you. I want to see you doing things you love and things you don’t quite like. Please take selfies and don’t feel shamed into not taking them for fear of people thinking you just want to be told you are pretty. You are! but that is besides the point. I do like seeing you.
So apparently its Postdoc Appreciation Week… so please feel free to spend all week appreciating the heck outta me (and any other postdocs you come across).
okay so if harry potter was born in 1980, and went to hogwarts in like 91, that means he was in his sixth year in 1996
