saw your nipple, pretty hot. nice boobs tho.

Oh god oh no you saw my nipple - well, not even a nipple, just a freaking slight silhoutte of one - and because it was showing you really just couldn’t hold your barbaric self anymore and just hád to come all the way to my inbox and anonymously bother me - who just wants to surf the internet in peace without being harrassed by idiotic creeps like you - with the fact that you got turned on by the slight sight of a body part that everybody owns but is in my case a bad thing because I am a woman. You know, of course because I’m a woman, a nipple is suddenly a sexual thing right so whenever it’s showing a little we must point that out to her, and it then is totally okay to be a perf like that becuase when a woman is showing such body parts she’s also obviously asking you to come and perf around.

Come here you freak and let me bite your head off so you’ll leave me alone

I’m going to build and program my own 3D printer tomorrow I am so exciteddd



this man who is going to help me is the kind of man who’s prejudged, narrow minded, values status a lot and is like “women and technology, hmmm” and like “but that person studied at a university so obviously makes a better candidate” etc.

I am someone who’s not easily intimidated or impressed or stuff like that but this really makes me feel like I have to prove myself and I’m actually pretty nervous despite the fact that I know I’m good in stuff like this and it just

It shouldn’t be this way in the world, meh

Living with Wolves' Garrick Dutcher:

"For the sake of our beautiful state and all of its wildlife, let’s hope that Idaho soon corrects course." 

Idaho Department of Fish and Game continues burning precious dollars on failing programs, while gaining increasingly widespread negative publicity as the black sheep of the nation. As fewer people take up hunting, those who enjoy Idaho’s nature in a nonconsumptive way steadily increase. IDFG’s one-dimensional revenue stream from hunting and fishing licenses and tag sales cannot keep pace with fiscal challenges. It’s time to realign economic realities with income-generating constituencies.

Can a Husky howl?

Yes! Huskies are one of the dog breeds that actually howl more often then other dogs. Huskies are known to communicate less by barking and more in talking, singing and howling noises. 

Anonymous asked:
what age do wolf pups usually howl for the first time?

About two weeks of age, wolf pups begin to stand and walk, and their vocalizations starts to include growls, whimpering and squeaks, and high-pitched attempts at howling.



Ravens and wolves form social attachments with each other and take huge advantage of each other.

Both animals eat meat. When wolves killed a prey, ravens eat from the left over cadaver and scavenge it. Also, ravens lead wolves to preys or cadavers. The ravens fly and the wolves follow. Ravens also alert wolves to dangers.

They also play with each other. For example the ravens dive at the wolves and then speed away or peck their tails to try to get the wolves to chase them, or wolf cubs chasing after teasing ravens.

Dr. L. David Mech wrote in ‘The Wolf: The Ecology and Behaviour of an Endangered Species’: "It appears that the wolf and the raven have reached an adjustment in their relationships such that each creature is rewarded in some way by the presence of the other and that each is fully aware of the other’s capabilities."

Also very interesting: Bernd Heinrich wrote in ‘Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures with Wolf-Birds’: "Ravens can be attracted to wolf howls. The wolves’ howls before they go on a hunt, and it is a signal that the birds learn to heed. Conversely, wolves may respond to certain raven vocalizations or behavior that indicate prey. The raven-wolf association may be close to a symbiosis that benefits the wolves and ravens alike. At a kill site, the birds are more suspicious and alert than wolves. The birds serve the wolves as extra eyes and ears."
