So, I was looking at a baby charmander art and was thinking, “They can’t have that flame tail in the egg, can they?” I mean, it’s possible that the flame develops when they’re ready to hatch. But then, what if instead the mother or father has to light the charmander’s tail when they’re first born?
Casual reminder that in one of Leonardo da Vinci’s many notebooks containing innumerable artistic and scientific sketches and notes of incomprehensible important, there is a sketch of two penises with legs and tails walking towards a crudely drawn anus.
The sketch was most likely done by Leonardo’s apprentice Salai, who was not only very likely one of Leonardo’s lovers, but who was also infamously mischievous. Better yet, the anus is literally labeled “Salai.”
So either Salai drew these while Leonardo wasn’t looking just to annoy his boyfriend, or Leonardo himself put actual time and energy into drawing these. Either way, the human race is truly blessed to have made such a discovery.
There are dick drawings like the ones you see on desks in school in Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks. Please cherish this information.
In the midst of exploring Renaissance Italy history for reasons, I have found a wonder.
This is a Klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus), a small species of antelope. They primarily live in mountainous areas, and it’s hooves are designed like that to allow it to stand on even the tiniest outcrop of rock.
its on its widdle tippy toes
the underside of their hooves is also quite rubbery and allows for better grip— it’s reported they can land safely on rock as wide as a dime.
also they mate for life and always stay by their mate. one will keep watch while another eats and are generally the cutest little things

I have two friends who taught themselves to read by playing video games.
What matters is that kids read and that they think reading is fun. It doesn’t matter as much what they’re reading. If they read regularly and enjoy reading, they’ll eventually read “worthwhile literature,” too, and they’ll have good enough reading skills to do it.
