If Andromeda were brighter, this is how it would look in our night sky.
They’re all out there, we just can’t see them

Peregrine Falcon

These incredible raptors were almost completely eradicated from North America. The now illegal pesticide DDT was sprayed on farmland, finding its way into the food chain. By consuming their natural prey, adult falcons suffered poisoning. Pesticides also caused the thinning of their egg shells rendering breeding pairs unsuccessful in reproduction. With the help of humans Peregrine falcon numbers have steadily brought them out of the danger zone..

These predatory birds are the fastest members of the animal kingdom, reaching speeds of 200 mph during their high speed dives. Peregrine falcons ‘punch’ their prey in one wing with a clenched foot, saving the falcon from injury, while stunning or killing their prey mid flight. They then capture their rendered flightless prey mid-air.

Peregrine Falcons are a global species, existing on every continent except Antarctica and New Zealand.

  • I'm in my father's class at my high school. He said this today:
  • Him: As some of you may not know, I'm a feminist.
  • class: *laughs*
  • Him: No, really, I am.
  • Class: *laughs again*
  • Him: Why is that funny?
  • Asshole: Because you're a man, and you shouldn't think that way.
  • Him: Well why not?
  • Asshole: I dunno that's just the way that is.
  • Him: I'm a feminist because of my wife. She and I have the EXACT same job. Yet, I make more than her.
  • Class: *laughs*
  • Him: Why is that funny? Shouldn't women be paid equally as men?
  • Same Asshole: No, they're supposed to be in the kitchen.
  • Him: *slams fist on asshole's desk* Why?
  • Asshole: Because that's how it is.
  • Him: Why?
  • Asshole: That's their job.
  • Him: Why?
  • Asshole: *can't come up with another answer*
  • Him: I'm a feminist because my wife has the exact same job, gets less pay, and with that, I can barely support my three children. If she got paid as much as me, life would be a bit easier for all of us.
  • *note, my mother is a teacher like my father*
  • Him: Women gave birth to us, and now, here in the state of Michigan, they can't even have their own rights? It's 2014 people! Grow up or get out of my class.
  • Class: *silence*
  • Him: Now.. Louis XVI

"

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

"
