The Potoo - Either the most unphotogenic or the most ridiculous looking bird in the world.
unphotogenic? these are my favorite pictures of any bird ever
This look like a Hayao Miyazaki creature.
OMG I’m still laughing HELP.
you adorably ugly little things
Wait—these aren’t Muppets? From The Dark Crystal, maybe? Nope, according to Wikipedia, these really exist, are native to Central and South America, and subspecies include the Great and Common Potoo.
“This gorgeous Hälssen & Lyon calendar is made of brewable tea. Each day is made of fine pressed wafer thin tea leaves.”
How wonderful :)
INTENSE WANT WHERE CAN I FIND THIS

I was reading hyperbole and a half’s blog entry explaining their experience of depression and decided to make another sketchy comic based on my experiences with anxiety, which is another mental illness I think people tend to misunderstand quite frequently

"Social media is not going away. As new platforms emerge, libraries will need to choose the channels that work for their communities. But whatever platforms they choose, they must have some kind of plan that outlines their goals and embrace philosophies that support interactivity with their communities. I think Bizzle summed it up best, “Successful libraries will determine what platforms most effectively reach their target audience and aggressively build sustainable presences there."
This is about Facebook but its still very good.
FB seems like the best spot to reach library patrons (at least adult public library patrons), so this is important stuff to keep in mind.
Star Trek “TOS”. One of my favorite vintage shows.
I like those two guys in engineering, one’s coming down the stairs and the other is leaning on the rail? They’re like “ok man, do you want anything from the mess?” “Get me pizza rolls.” “Dude, I’m not using one of my protein rations on that, grow up.” “Aw come on!”
“No!” “Okay, fine… get me a sandwich. But for the love of god, make sure the damn thing tessellates the cheese.” “I’m never asking if you want something again.”
"Hope is not about proving anything. It’s about choosing to believe this one thing, that love is bigger than any grim, bleak shit anyone can throw at us."
