"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""

pansexualfacts:

Fact: While pansexuals are not attracted to pans, animals or inanimate objects, 94% of interviewed pansexuals report attraction to ancient Greek Pandora, stating ‘that whole releasing evil thing? Kinda hot, if you ask me’ in unison.

I want a movie about a kid who just so happens to be born a Classic Gothic Hero, but in modern day. His name would be like Byron Dangerfield or something. 

Whenever he has EMOTIONS, there are claps of thunder and lightning. Every time he leans against a piece of furniture, it turns out to open a secret passageway leading to some dark secret, until eventually he’s just like “REALLY, GUYS?” All bad dreams are prophetic, even if it’s just that Starbucks will be out of pumpkin spice syrup the next day. Every girl he talks to swoons a lot and has a tyrannical heavy-browed father who are all played by the same actor. Ravens flock around him.

There are inexplicably paintings with moving eyes and moving suits of armor everywhere he goes, even McDonalds. Every time he moves to a new apartment, there is ALWAYS a screaming woman chained up in the room above his, and she invariably sets the place on fire. He’s so over it.

WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

*puts up bat signal for science side of tumblr*

SCIENCE SIDE TO THE RESCUE
This is actually two separate organisms! The larger one is a cardinal fish. What you’re seeing in this gif is the moment after it has just eaten a little bitty crustacean called an ostrocod. As soon as it gets eaten, the ostrocod emits a sharp burst of light through the use of two chemicals. The cardinal fish, which lives in the super dark deep part of the ocean, basically goes “OH SHIT NO NO NO NOW THINGS THAT WANT TO EAT ME CAN SEE ME” and spits out the ostrocod. It’s a little hard to see in this particular gif, but you can watch the full video here and several times, you can see the lil babby ostrocod swimming out of the bioluminescent cloud. (The link also has more detailed information about the biology.)
