So a new species of snake (Pseudocerastes urarachnoides) was recently discovered in southern Iran.

Its common name is the spider-tailed horned viper because its tail is literally a fucking spider. This salty motherfucker has a spider (well, a VERY convincing spider-shaped lure) for a tail. I’d try to get on its level but I don’t know if that’s even possible.

Spider snake. Snake spider. Nature isn’t even in the neighborhood of fucking around. 

"C’mere bird. Come on down and get this fucking spider. Come on down and fly down and get this fucking spider you god damn flying douche rocket bird."

When my husband [Carl Sagan] died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me — it still sometimes happens — and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again.

Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don’t ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous — not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance… That pure chance could be so generous and so kind… That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space and the immensity of time… That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me and it’s much more meaningful.

The way he treated me and the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other and our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don’t think I’ll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful.

Kamikaze and the Sniper by kungfubellydancer
I went to Matsuricon 2014 and I managed to capture this special moment on camera; this is an illustration of an actual still from the video! You can watch this precious thing happen as a Sniper cosplayer has his hat chewed on by Kamikaze my bird at http://youtu.be/mL6sEGbHN6c?t=1m17s but also watch the whole thing! I believe I heard people refer to this sniper as Citadel (?).

I look like a Disney prince :D
This was seriously the friendliest cockatiel I’ve ever encountered.
