Black Leopard’s Reaction When He Sees His Favorite Zoo Keeper
#SPNFamily ( VanCon 2014 [x])
you know those people that can literally carry on a conversation with anyone are amazing like wow how do you do that
Being here at the Eastman School of Music is simply an incredible experience. I’m so grateful and fortunate to have been given the amazing opportunity to study at the top conservatory in the US. It’s amazing not just being around some of the best musicians in the world, but some of the most supportive and encouraging musicians I’ve ever met. It’s all surreal to me still, having worked so hard for so long to get here. It’s a bit bizarre because part of me is saying,”I made it! I’ve finally done it! It’s over!”. But the other part of me knows that I’ve only just begun, that I’ve barely scratched the surface of what I’m capable of and what I’m going to learn musically. Every day I’m constantly learning how little I previously knew, and not in a bad way, but in a humbling and enlightening way.
This is why I love QI
Anglophilia probs: I’ve never been able to find QI on BBC/BBC America. :’( Yay for YouTube!
My personal favorite Stephen Fry / QI quote: “The short answer is no. The long answer is f*** no.”
what if when you killed someone you gained their best trait
#you think you’re killing someone for their brain and you get their nose instead #you think you’re killing someone for their strength and you get their baking skills instead #you think you’re killing someone for their cunning and you get their ability to parallel park
write a goddam book
Ludovic Florent's series “Poussières d’étoiles” (Stardust).
This is fucking gorgeous
It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing
Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course).
Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.
EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND LOOK AT THIS CAT.
