do men have resting bitch faces as well or do they not have negative characteristics ascribed to them for putting on a neutral rather than a deliriously happy facial expression

So I wanted to draw this little reference to show the difference between different members of the corvidae family. It sort of got out of hand… And now I think wings are a huge pain in the ass to draw and I never want to see a bird again.

magpies don’t have any blue on them tho?? idk im confused about magpie

it’s showing the eurasian magpie

so that’s like a different kind of magpie from the aussie one?


yep! there are 13 species of magpies that are corvids. the australian magpie is actually not a corvid like the other magpies! it is more closely related to butcherbirds.

NEW RULES TO ADDRESSING ME AS A FAT PERSON

pardonmewhileipanic:

New Rules: 

1. FOOD: If you want to come at me about “how much I eat”, you need to provide an exact food diary of everything I ate in the past week, (not just what it was, but how much and when). Then you also need to provide at least 36 examples of thin people eating the same amounts/foods, and write a 10 page paper on why you don’t attack them, only me, and then provide 8 medically accurate and unbiased documents proving without a SHRED of doubt that these thin people eating the same amounts/things are as healthy/healthier than me.

2. HEALTH: if you want to come at me about my health/that I’m going to die, you need to provide me with full professional doctors papers, PhD and all, as well as MY individual health records, and at least 12 UNBIASED research papers done by reputable doctors (dr. phil does not count) 

3. APPEARANCE: If you want to come at me about how I look to you, I am going to need a minimum of 245 photos of you, from all angles, with/without make up/beards/whatever, and you’re going to need to explain in a 12 page paper, single space, size 8 font, what it is about YOU and YOUR LOOKS that gives you the right to judge anyone else. Remember, I said looks only. I don’t give a flying fuck if you once helped someone move to a new apartment, this isn’t about nicest personality, this is about looks as you made it clear in attacking me for it.

Finally, and this is the most important rule of all, 

4. WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THESE PAPERS, PHOTOS, AND FOOD DIARIES? 

I need you to follow the below diagram, before ever coming to me with any of the above

Thank you. Have a nice day.

The Amazing Connections Between the Inca and Egyptian Cultures 

"The ancient Egyptians (in Africa) and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas (in South America) evolved on opposite sides of the globe and were never in contact.

Yet, both cultures mysteriously possessed the same strikingly identical body of ancient art, architecture, symbolism, mythology and religion.

The Victorian era scholars, faced with this enigma, concluded that both cultures must have been children of the same Golden Age parent civilization, “Atlantis.”

Today, Egyptian/Inca parallels are not only being ignored by American and Western scholars, they’re being suppressed.

Many baffling and unsolved similarities link the ancient Egyptians and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas ― even though both cultures evolved on opposite sides of the planet, separated by oceans” Read More

NO.

NO NO NO NO NO.

For starters, these architectures resemble each other only superficially. Egypt is on a flood plain. Peru is in the Ring of Fire. One area has to worry about floods; the other, earthquakes. Thus their native cultures designed their buildings accordingly, with different shapes, materials, building processes/tools and construction techniques. Only the most superficial gaze sees these stone and adobe constructions and concludes that they’re “eerily similar”, presumably because all stonework is the same? I mean FFS the blocks aren’t even shaped the same or joined in the same patterns, unless you think there’s something spookily similar about people lining stone blocks up into a row, or into pillars with a slab on top.

Secondly, I can’t identify all the sites/artifacts in these pictures, but I see at the very least Qorikancha, Chan Chan, maaaybe Huaca del Sol and what appears to be a skull from the Colca region — meaning that the person who has assembled this photoset has cherry-picked from several hundred miles (and more than a thousand years!) of distinct, disparate archaelogical sites, geographies and culturesof “Pre-Inka” history in order to match a few photos of the Egyptian pyramids, which were built in the same general region. That’s some super-duper disingenuous bullshit right there.

Finally, the Pre-Inka and Inka cultures and dynastic Egyptian mythos and religions are nothing at all alike, unless you’re the sort of person that assumes all religions with multiple gods are the same. Which a lot of Eurocentric Victorians were. 

This photoset and the accompanying article is racist bullshit; it’s the archaeological equivalent saying all brown people look alike because they’re brown. I shouldn’t even be surprised that the article invokes research “suppression” and the concept of Atlantis to explain similarities that don’t even exist, save in a racist’s mind’s eye.

The Olive Fairy Book by Andrew LangIllustration by Kate Baylay

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.

Is it fatphobic to believe that the body represents the mind?

thisisthinprivilege:

It is fatphobic to attach moral or ethical value to size, which it sounds like you’re probably doing if you feel the need to ask us this. It is healthist to attach moral or ethical value to ability or disability, to “physical fitness” or lack thereof, to “health” in any way you define it. It is bigoted and wrong to think that any particular physical characteristic demonstrates some particular mental or emotional attribute. It will always be factually incorrect, because there will always be many many people who have the physical characteristic but not the mental/emotional one and vice versa. If you want a good example of the absurdity of thinking that physical characteristics indicate mental ones, go read up on phrenology.
