Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)
The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.
If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves
Its cool to see after ten years that 2-D still gets to ride shotgun.
have some cute pitbulls!
Rebloghing the original cause my friend’s name was taken off and das rude.
See, I appreciate the sentiment and I love bully breed dogs but.
Perpetuating the idea that they aren’t more prone to potentially dangerous behavior than other breeds is misleading and harmful to both the dogs and the people who bring them into their lives.
People who don’t know about the behavioral traits their dog may be prone to (or are vehemently opposed to the idea that their dogs may have the traits at all) generally don’t take care to ensure that proper socialization and breed-specific training is achieved—aka bad news for both people and dogs.
I know you probably aren’t trying to be rude, but really? You’re going to start this on my post about how pitbulls are happy dogs and how I love them and turn it into “but this is a dangerous stereotype”? Proper socialization is crucial for every breed; a dog brought up to be antisocial will react in nature with its upbringing when stressed or triggered.
A person who does not know how to take care of a dog or is not committed to a dog’s upbringing should not have a dog in the first place, and it certainly does not and will not matter to them that I am “perpetuating” the idea that all dogs are capable of being brought up correctly. On an even playing field, pitbulls are no more aggressive than breeds such as the beloved golden retriever.
I could go on about how pitbulls/bully breeds/”vicious” breeds are often owned by people with long standing criminal records, how there are bad breeders that encourage dog-fighting traits in their litters, how there are so, so many people that don’t understand their breeds/dogs regardless of how aggressive society views them to be (I’ve seen so many problematic dogs as a result), etc. but I won’t. Nothing I say here will change the preconceived notions people already hold in their heads, but please stop saying that because I love pitbulls I am pushing an agenda of ignorance.
just found my new phone case
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
Reason number 93845792384729384 to love Mara Wilson. You go, girl!
people say lmao a lot nowadays but no one says rofl anymore and its weird cause back in the day rofl and lmao used to be interchangeable and if you were a risktaker youd combine them into roflmao but now everyones dropped rofl. its probably for the best but i cant help but be nostalgic.
is this why the show was taken off nick?
So this is what air benders can do. Sucking the air out of people’s lungs. Just as cool as lightening bending if you ask me
No I don’t think you guys understand this is frightening
Airbenders are pretty much the most powerful benders. A firebender has to create fire. A waterbender is most powerful on the open seas as much as an earthbender is on land. But air is literally everywhere.
The Air Nomads weren’t dangerous because they chose not to be.
you’vE GONE TOO DEEP
Hey, HOLD UP.
While I agree that Airbenders do have a lot of power at their exposure, they aren’t the only ones.
Waterbenders can bend any type of fluid containing water, even blood inside the human body! That’s pretty fucking metal.
They can also take the water vapor out of the air, use their own sweat or even drain the water out of every living thing nearby.
Imagine that ^^ happening to a person..
Next we have fire, the element of destruction. Like Airbenders, they can use the air around them, and transfer it into energy. Firebenders can bend or generate anything fire/ heat related. That means lightning, flames, or extreme heat that has the potential to shape its environment (such as melt molten rock and metal.) Even fire breath!
Next we have Earth. Earthbenders can bend anything related or comprised of Earth, such as metal, rock, dirt, sand, etc. EVEN LAVA. Anything mineral related? You got it. Admittedly, minerals- although extremely easy to come by, are not as present as water or air. But there sure is enough to make use of, and we can’t say Earthbenders aren’t powerful!
This guy just stopped a volcano.
Not only are they powerful, but they are also graceful.
And I mean look at this! Avatar Kyoshi Earthbends a freaking continent in HALF!
In conclusion, fear all benders.
