This is the most accurate gif of Florida I have ever seen.
”What the fuck?”
She’s not even scared, she’s just mad and confused.
baby gators are basically confused sharp bunnies who wander into other people’s pools for a dip and some sunbathing and might gnaw on u. mommas are the scary ones.
confused sharp bunnies
i’d argue that you don’t even have to worry about mommas. alligators are literally stoners. like don’t fuck with their stuff and they’ll just chill and leave you alone.
Except during mating season - then you need to be careful if you hear frantic pounding on your door unexpectedly. Could just be Mama Gator lookin’ for some lovin’.
Alligators are not exactly stoners, though they are cold-blooded and so are more active in the warmer months (March-September, which coincides with mating season and nesting/hatching season).
The summer before I went to college, a snorkeler went out of protected areas on the Wakulla River — they found pieces of him the next day.
It is important to know that 1) they are territorial, particularly in mating/nesting season; 2) they can move faster than you think — yes, you can outrun them, but only if they don’t win via the element of surprise; 3) to them, kids and pets look like snacks, so don’t let them play at the edges of gator-infested waters. (Note: almost all freshwater in Florida can be assumed to be gator-infested, and it’s hard to tell whether you’re too near a mother’s nest until you’re on top of it.)
No, alligator attacks aren’t a frequent occurrence, but even a 5-ft gator can hurt you badly. So keep a generous distance, please.
Mornin’ kids! Doing anything festive today? I’m planning on red beans and rice and an as yet to be determined baking project while enjoying beers with friends. Maybe homemade donuts? Hmmm…
As I have a non-party school function tonight, I’m probably going to make do with a king cake from Frida’s.
So my daughter just pointed out something that I never thought of…
In The Many Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh, Gopher appears when Pooh is stuck in Rabbit’s front door. Gopher hands Pooh a card. “Here’s my card … I’m not in the book!” (A holdover from days when you’d find phone numbers in “the phone book”.)
And he isn’t in the book.
He’s Disney’s original character, and he is not in either Winnie-the-Pooh or The House at Pooh Corner.
Well played, Disney, WELL PLAYED.
In order to protect their dominant market share, Keurig makers Green Mountain Coffee Roasters has been on a bit of an aggressive tear of late. As with computer printers, getting the device in the home is simply a gateway to where the real money is: refills. But Keurig has faced the “problem” in recent years of third-party pod refills that often retail for 5-25% less than what Keurig charges. As people look to cut costs, there has also been a growing market for reusable pods that generally run anywhere from five to fifteen dollars.
Keurig’s solution to this problem? In a lawsuit (pdf) filed against Keurig by TreeHouse Foods, they claim Keurig has been busy striking exclusionary agreements with suppliers and distributors to lock competing products out of the market. What’s more, TreeHouse points out that Keurig is now developing a new version of their coffee maker that will incorporate the java-bean equivalent of DRM — so that only Keurig’s own coffee pods can be used in it.
Friends don’t let friends use pod coffee makers.
FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS USE POD COFFEE MAKERS.
The word “pod” alone should make you run and flee.
It’s easy to make a single cup of coffee — you just need a single-cup pour-over filter system. You need to buy filters, yes, but a packet lasts a long time. (Mine is Melitta’s "Ready Set Joe" system).
More than anything, I think that the relationship between Cap and Widow is one that becomes a friendship and that is way more interesting than a romantic relationship. We don’t really know yet if she’s really even capable of that. Black Widow has so many trust issues that the last thing on her mind is like, “Man, I wish I had a boyfriend.” Steve Rogers is an attractive guy but I think she’s learning how to be herself —whoever herself is. This friendship is the catalyst that helps her to understand other events with Fury and helps her to understand what she wants because she’s probably never really asked herself that. That’s what we see more of developing; between the two of them is a friendship that allows her to be self-reflective.
no matter what the academy has chosen, this is tonight’s best picture.
I see the Hawkeye Initiative is still going strong!
I think public schools should only use organic, non-GMO, glue–instead of worrying about free school lunches, no one ever thinks about the animals.
spicyblue asked: Do you think Clint can shoot arrows with his feet? If not, do you think he tries when no one is looking?
I think Clint drinks. And when he doesn’t have adult supervision while drinking, Clint has done all sorts of stupid things.
Or if the adult supervision is Nat. Who kind of enjoys watching him try to figure out if he can do things while wasted.
The answer is mostly no.
Clint says this counts.
[From Giant-Sized Avengers #3, 1975.]
Is he in a bubble bath? Why- I mean- What-
Never mind. It’s Clint. The answer is always, simply, “Clint.”
Also I’m pretty sure with that ‘stance,’ he’s about to get a bowstring to the kneecaps.
Is anyone else bothered by the fact that Sam is apparently hearing Clint’s voice in his head?
Is anyone genuinely surprised, though?
