i’m that friend that has to walk behind the group when the path isn’t big enough. i’m that friend that gets cut off in the conversation. i’m that friend that gets left behind when i asked for them to wait for me. i’m that friend that doesn’t get invited to hang out alot. i’m that friend that if i want to go to the mall or some place with a friend i have to be the one to invite people to make sure i get included. i’ll always be that friend.
I wanted to double check that “The Cherry on Top” was a short novel or novella and I found this on uphillwriting.org. I think it’s very informative and hopefully you guys will find it useful!
when you genuinely like and care for someone but can’t express it without being weird
That gif is terrifying. If it can crush that can so easily, imagine what it could do to a human body
prinsith-cunt said: Among several mammals, including lions, mice and monkeys, females will either spontaneously abort their fetuses or abandon their newborns when times prove rocky or a new male swaggers into town. Other mothers, like pandas, practice a postnatal form of family planning, giving birth to what may be thought of as an heir and a spare, and then, when the heir fares well, walking away from the spare with nary a fare-thee-well.
also “Pandas frequently give birth to twins, but they virtually never raise two babies,” said Scott Forbes, a professor of biology at the University of Winnipeg. “This is the dark side of pandas, that they have two and throw one away.”
I knew about the mice and what not inducing their own natural abortions, but I did not know that about the pandas! Thanks for the info! - Paige
Horses as well! Only the mares don’t just suddenly have an abortion, the stallion who takes over their herd will nag and basically abuse then so that the previous stallion’s foal is not born. They get really quite violent about it, I believe.
And in the case of lions, if a cub or cubs are born and new males take over the pride, the new male/s will kill the cubs because they are not their own. The lionesses will try to protect their cubs (to the death even) but sometimes they fail.
