people with extroverted traits can have depression? people with extroverted traits can be writers? people with extroverted traits can enjoy reading? people with extroverted traits do not exist solely for you to slam with your classist (and usually misogynist, and often racist) stereotypes of shrieking california beach bunnies and jock hunks? in fact, people with extroverted traits can have introverted traits, and the distinction is not as clear as you think it is? you are literally recreating the dichotomy of GOTHS VS PREPS that you acted out on neopets when you were eleven years old because you can’t let go of your US VS THEM mentality? stop it?

The Pig Preserve in Tenessee, United States attempts to give back to pigs the natural environment they deserve, This sanctuary takes more of a “hands-off” approach and allows hundreds of pigs to roam the 100 acres of land and forest freely.
It is magical and refreshing to see these creatures in such greenery, next to trees, and with so much free space.
This is the way every pig deserves to live.
Support pigs and their freedom by adopting a vegan lifestyle.

Today I made a HARDCORE PANSY shirt to replace the one my friend made for me which I love (how the fuck do you lose a tshirt?)
The stencils were freehand drawn, then cut out with the blade of a stanley knife, then I used a metallic spray paint. I did not wear a mask. That is how you know I’m hardcore. I should be revising right now.

The Complex Structure of Bucket Orchids
Orchids of the genus Coryanthes have evolved along with orchid bees, and depend on each other for reproduction.
Male bees are attracted to an pheromone laced wax produced under the orchid’s helmet. The wax is stored by the male and are used in courtship. However, the helmet is slippery and bees sometimes fall into the fluid filled bucket below.
Once in the bucket, their wings are wet, which prevent them from flying. The walls of the bucket are smooth and lined with downward pointing hairs, preventing the insect from escaping through climbing. A small opening towards the front of the flower is the only way out.
As the bee climbs through the narrow opening, they must press their bodies against sticky pollen packets. These are essentially glued to the bee’s body as it tries to escape. In order for fertilisation to happen, the pollen from one plant must be transferred to the stigma of another plant.
After the bee flies off and visits another flower, it goes through a similar ordeal. This time, as it exits the bucket, the pollen packet on its back brushes past the stigma of the new flower, thus achieving pollination.

Purkinje neurons play an essential role in motor function. Here the Purkinje neurons reach their arbor-like dendrites into the molecular layer of the developing cerebellum of a mouse. The mostly green cells at the bottom left are cerebellar granule cells, which relay information from the nervous system to the Purkinje neurons.
