Shut the fuck up about Pluto
When we learn new facts, we have to reconsider our systems of categorization. Science adapts to new information—in this case, the increasing number of other Kuiper belt objects we’ve discovered, including ones bigger than Pluto. They’re not new planets, so neither is Pluto. Not to mention the orbital behavior.
It’s still there. It’s still called Pluto. It’s just a Kuiper belt object.
Science adapts to new facts. This Pluto nostalgia isn’t cute and it has an undercurrent of anti-science, anti-intellectual backwardness. Get over the outdated models you learned in first grade and learn something new about the goddamn solar system, because the solar system is exciting and we learn amazing new things about it literally every single day.
The universe doesn’t give a fuck about your grade school nostalgia.
Let me reach out to everyone that I follow and say in total seriousness: I really love your text posts. Make more of them, so I can feel even more like your friend.
Oh no. I’ve been worrying about this birthday thing all day and now I have a stomachache.
hide-and-seek-in-the-dark asked: Kelp, a gay flag, a nudibranch, an octopus, and an actual sharknado (because why not).
This would totally work on me in real life. Maybe not so much the sharknado, though. I generally try to avoid those.
awrrex asked: Naaaaaan, small knicknacks make from aluminum and candlewax, 5 pairs of otoliths, a rainbow flag, and a couple of really long nemerteans laid out in the shape of a pentagram.
don’t hurt BEES. they just want to pollinate flowers and make honey. hurt WASP’s. fuck them and their old money, big mansions, and country clubs
Wasps are ecologically important predators and pollinators. Respect wasps, fuck WASPs.
What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:
- I am unable to do that
- I am too stressed out to do that
- I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
- My body will physically not allow me to do that
- I am on the verge of a panic attack
- I cannot do that
What people hear:
- I am unwilling to do that
- I am just shy
- I am overreacting
- I am lazy
- I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
- I need a push
- I don’t want to do that

Anonymous asked: Any fetishes?
I don’t really know. I’m kinda boring, but I’m willing to try a lot of things, I suppose.
