• knight: so how does the whole summoning thing work? i'd think harnessing the power of the gods would be pretty tricky.
  • summoner: that's not quite accurate. it's less "gods" that i summon so much as...
  • summoner: well, it's hard to describe easily. manifestations of the aggregated beliefs and commonalities of our cultures, represented through a shared symbology that i can tap into.
  • knight:
  • knight: so, memes?
  • summoner: i don't - what?
  • knight: you summon memes.
  • summoner: no, no it's completely different from - i don't summon memes!
  • knight: hey, Y U NO SUMMON ME? haha

shulk for worst newcomer, hate his name, voice, and sword so much

Another GIF from the Korra season 3 finale. 
More beautiful animation- I love how she twists as she takes off that rock pillars’ top. 
There were some insane  awesome shots in both episodes and great choreography for the action sequences.

This GIF shows how the toucan releases heat using its beak to cool itself off.
The toucan beak isn’t just beautiful, it’s also an adjustable thermal radiator that the bird uses to warm and cool itself. When the bird is hot, the blood vessels in their beak open up to allow more circulation to enable heat to escape. Birds can’t sweat so they have to come up with some life hacks to get the job done. [video]

This is absolutely fascinating. It seems so obvious that the beak would be a good way to radiate heat out, but I’d never even thought of that.

That is awesome!

historical-nonfiction:

Some crabs near Danno-ura in Japan have patterns on their shells bearing an uncanny resemblance to a face of a samurai. When caught, these crabs are thrown back in commemoration of the Heike samurai clan, who lost a naval battle there in 1185. The patterns on the crabs’ shells are inherited, and it is believed that the patterns evolved because fishermen tended to throw back crabs with patterns resembling faces. Crabs with patterns most resembling a face had a better chance of survival. Eventually, the pattern of the face of a fierce, scowling samurai evolved.
