I know red fever, yellow fever, latin fever, and every other kind of ‘fever’ are all bad, but even just the wording of the term jungle fever particularly gives me a really bad feeling.
Part of the reason it doesn’t sit well with me is because I’m…

It was at first a bit of shocker to see that my own country descended into such chaos. Most of the time, these things are a far away news even with 2011’s London Riot. However, this is the very first time I’ve actually seen this happen right in my backyward — so to speak.
These pictures are taken by me two hours ago. The police have agreed to leave for now and the protesters have sat in for the long haul.
Just look at the numbers. And then look at how organized they are.
I have very, very little comments about the actual protests itself, but I am superbly proud about how organized and peaceful the protest have been. There are supplies tent including water, pocari sweat, food, and cooling pads (wow), and first aid stations in order to aid the protesters in need.
The protesters have also barricaded pathways for people to leave and also to enter the protest without much of a fuss and kept most major walkpaths cleared despite of the number of people.
On top of that, there are also groups of volunteers that are very slowly working through the crowd to make sure everyone there are hydrated and cooled with cooling pads in this terribly humid and hot weather.
All in all, I have never been prouder to be a Hong Kong-er. Go guys! Fight for Democracy!!
PS: If you are confused about the situation in HK, feel free to send me an ask or two for some clarification. I totally don’t mind shedding some light to the background of this riot
Add oil guys!!
Groups under SM that either wouldn’t renew their contracts under the company, have one or more members inactive for personal reasons, have members who have sued the company, or have members who are in the process of being fired.
They really screw up with their artists a lot don’t they.
These stunning pieces from body vision los angeles include a Tiara septum ring, a Crown and a Toltec, all of which are crafted from rose gold and feature genuine amethyst gemstones.
We spent a long while just staring at these beauties before we sent them off to our client in Pennsylvania. Someone’s face is getting a serious make-over.
Thanks to Dan Steinbacher for taking the great photos!
I still can’t get over this set. Seriously all of my favorites.
So apparently feminism is a hate movement. I’m sorry I don’t remember any feminists going on any shooting sprees because they were rejected by men or sending death and rape threats to blogger who pointed out sexism in video games.
ATTENTION FOR A SECOND, YO:
Real talk, this animal (the Ordovician Helmet crab, aka the Horseshoe crab, aka the Atlantic’s most at-risk shelled animal) is of a species that is close to 450 million years old. They are considered endangered, and often wash up on the shores of Long Island (this big lady crab was at TR park in Oyster Bay)
Note: these animals are often used to extract their blue blood and cure diseases. They help the ocean out big time. And they are one of the longest-surviving species on the planet. They’re washing up and people don’t think to/are scared to save them because of their deceivingly harmless barbs.
Take note, friends. Their barbs are NOT stingers. They cannot hurt you. Their pinchers aren’t pinchers, they’re just little legs that are actually really soft! The barb tail they have is actually what they use to stick into the ocean floor or the sand when waves knock them over or they flip onto their backs by accident. And you can help them out by flipping them back over very quickly and helping them scuttle back into the water if you see them struggling.
This is way important. Just call me the Sarah McLachlan of horseshoe crabs.
save the Kabuto
oh wow I see these guys washing up a lot! I didn’t know they were endangered D:

Don’t fucking bash my generation, we didn’t do, aren’t responsible for, and are picking up the pieces of our asshole parents.
