the lady at the sandwich shop today was like “that’ll be 4.20 luv, would you like it toasted?” and i nodded and said “blaze it” and the guy working the sandwich toaster lost it
Just to show my parents that I’m not the only one.
I guess I’m not the only one
"jace it is just a rubber duck"
"katniss put the squirrel down"
"percy get over here you hyperactive little turd"
"augustus stop you are giving mommy feels"
"loki, you’re adopted"
Early Samurai Champloo concept sketches of Mugen, Jin, FUU and random characters buy the incomparable KAZUTO NAKAZAWA ( Character Designer/animation supervisor). Joy.
One of our favorite games to play at the store with our managers is “dead lizard”.
The chinese water dragons, when calm, allow themselves to be laid on their back and will just lie there very still.
So when it happens, we call a manager over in a worried tone and go, “Look what happened!! :(“
As the manager starts to worry, we flip the dragon back over, he wakes up and he gives this face like “‘sup?”
This is very much a stress response, and has nothing to do with relaxing.
This is the same response I got while wiping GUSHING PUSS out of a water dragons heavily infected bleeding eye socket.
Closed eyes, frozen posture. This is passive appeasement. He/she is sending you signals (in water dragon body language) that it doesn’t want to fight you (even though you are the aggressor in the situation) and to please leave it alone.
also worth noting that since CWDs don’t have diaphragms, when turned on their backs their internal organs put pressure on their lungs and they suffocate. THAT is why they go into a “trance” when you put them on their backs.
i’ve seen dozens of ignorant people doing this and i always need to say something. this lizard is passing out from lack of air, as well as trying to be as inoffensive as possible.
reptile behavior is almost NEVER what you think it is because they are not mammals and do not act like mammals!
Reptiles are not like other kinda of animals let alone pets. If you are going to be in the business of selling or owning reptiles then FUCKING EDUCATE YOURSELF.
So glad to not be the one calling this bullshit for once.
Remember guys: A calm, tame lizard is a CONFIDENT lizard. They will be entirely neutral to your presence, active, and not focused on you. If your lizard closes their eyes when touched or handled, squints, “goes to sleep” or otherwise goes still, you’re fucking up. Just because they’re not biting you or feeling safe enough to run for their lives doesn’t mean they’re calm.
the dumbest thing is when parents say “this isnt how i raised you” like ?????? yes it really is you literally raised me and here i am
A gift I’m working on for Vertaki on dA of her character named Morpheus. :)
This video reel makes me wonder how often really spectacular practical effects have been misidentified as “shitty cg” by people who like to cry about anything that doesn’t look like Harryhausen Dynamation.
Because I’m very sure I’ve heard those sort of comments directed towards a lot of the creatures showcased here when they appeared in their respective films.
my mind is being blown apart
