"evolution is written on the wings of butterflies" - charles darwin
Seeing the microscopic wonder that is a butterfly’s wing always makes me think of Vladimir Nabokov, author and lepidopterist (and not necessarily in that order).
You’ll want to check out Nabokov’s butterfly sketches, whimsical fantasy species presented as gifts to his wife. And don’t miss his gorgeous butterfly-inspired poem, “On Discovering a Butterfly”.
Finally, don’t miss this great video from Smarter Every Day in which Destin goes full microscope on some butterfly scales. Beautiful stuff:
in which Totoro boops Mana Ashida on the head.
Japanese child actress Mana was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.

mac (aroostotle) was one of the first people i remember befriending when the neotag started out. in addition to being a really sweet person, she’s also incredibly inspiring if you ask me! she’s really talented, passionate, and intelligent, but she’s still always so friendly and easy to approach. just an overall awesome neopian! :) - Otarrato
I’m really glad I decided to check Tumblr before bed, this was such an awesome thing to end my day with! I feel so lucky to have met so many wonderful people here over the years who enjoy the same things I do, playing Neopets wouldn’t be nearly as fun without you. Thank you so much!!
oops i didn’t see this until just now haha
we love you mac~! <3
what the FUCK ?!?!
It’s a thing.
It is indeed a thing.

I am clever and funny and nice and i am surrounded by so many beautiful friends who love me and care about me !! I love them a lot and I will not let life get in the way of keeping all of us happy !
please take good care of your toys
and if you break them, either fix them up immediately or just altogether leave them alone.
maybe you think it needs more attention and playtime when it’s broken, but that’s actually just going to hurt it more and more. if you’re not going to help it then leave it the fuck alone.
can you imagine being huddled away in a corner with a little screen
and on that screen it’s showing everything you love slowly falling apart and crumbling more and more and you think it can’t get worse and there’s nothing left that can possibly be destroyed but it just
it just keeps going
and you can’t close your eyes or look away it is there it’s happening and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it…..can you imagine.
