Jellyfish Lake in Palau. Apparently the jellies have lost their ability to sting because of lack of predators in the lake and you can swim with them!
WAIT BUT THAT’S NOT EVEN THE COOLEST PART: These jellyfish carry small populations of algae inside their bodies and derive much of their nutrition from the sugars that the algae produce. The jellyfish follow the sun across the lake each day and rotate continuously, so that the algae are always getting maximum sunlight exposure for photosynthesis. Then at night they dive to deeper parts of the lake so the algae can absorb nitrogen. It’s one of the best examples of endosymbiosis in action and it’s KICKASS.

#can we just stop and appreciate Harry’s face in this scene? #I mean, he’s literally waiting for someone to say something about Hermione’s blood status #she’s the only Muggleborn in the slug club full of purebloods and well known people #and Harry’s there just like “say something I dare you” #and if you look at her face, you can see the actual hesitation and somewhat fear of what will happen next after telling of her parents occupation #Harry truly is acting like Hermione’s big brother, which I absolutely love #i just adore this scene
I love that Neville looks genuinely interested in what hermione’s talking about.
Harry: I wish a mofo would talk shit right now
Say something, make my day
hell YEAH, reference
Two women in other parts of the country wanted to pay an overdue bill for someone in Detroit. This is their project.
I cant help right now, but hopefully some of y’all can.
I have this Really Important headcanon that after the war, Harry takes Grimmauld Place and converts it into a children’s home for Hogwarts students who can’t or shouldn’t or don’t want to go back home for the summer holidays because of Serious Reasons because like. if he hadn’t had to go back to the dursleys every summer. if tom riddle had been able to stay at hogwarts all year instead of returning to his horrible life. if beaten down, neglected, destitute, depressed, miserable kids who see hogwarts as A Way Out could just be removed from those toxic melancholy destructive environments even more permanently
He calls it the R.J. Lupin House and takes volunteers from both the existing Hogwarts staff and the general Hogwarts-oriented wizarding community for caregivers etc. during the summer months. sometimes there’s summer programming for education or just for funsies and sometimes there isn’t and it’s just a place for kids to live and be themselves as they deserve to be. and Harry holds lil Quidditch matches for the athletic kids and Neville is among the first to volunteer and that’s how he gets his start on the track to becoming a full-blown professor
do you ever cry
Take my love, Take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don’t care, I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell ‘em I ain’t comin’ back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the sky from me
There’s no place I can’t be
since I found Serenity
But you can’t take the sky from me
If there’s an Einstein-Rosen bridge, then there’s something on the other side. And advanced beings could have crossed it!
#this was such an important scene for me#a scientist acnkowledging that magic is as real and valid as science#it’s just a matter of understand how it works#if you want to know why i love jane foster here’s a big reason#she believes#she doesn’t dismiss magic as ridiculous or made-up or nonsense#she believes it exists and she just needs to learn how it works#it’s amazing that she is so open to any possibility as long as she understands how it functions#i love jane foster so much#she matters so much (tags via dammit-mcu)
This isn’t the age of spies. This is not even the age of heroes. This is the age of miracles; and there’s nothing more horrifying than a miracle.
THESE ARE PAINTINGS. I THOUGHT THEY WERE UBER HIGH RES STILLS BUT. I THINK THEY’RE PAINTINGS?
That last one tho. he just casually merges into the NOPE lane.
