this mother fucker is the voice of nemo


shit i think i want to fuck nemo

this little fucker goes to my college— I’ve met him. To make matter worse, he’s sweet and shy. And hates it when people whisper “fish are friends, not food” around him. 

oh my god

“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”

Ground ZeroSeptember 11 is a day of reflection for Americans and people around the world. It is a day we all look back and remember the horrific events of the terrorist attacks that killed almost 3,000 people, including over 400 emergency workers that responded to the call of duty. It is also a day we look forward, with lessons learned and a hope for a safer future. 
Ground Zero, the site of the World Trade Center twin towers collapse is a memorial to those that were lost, and also a symbol of recovery and renewal, as new buildings are constructed to attempt to replace what was lost. Immediately after the event, scientists from the USGS and NASA quickly found ways to collect much needed data on dust contaminants and other dangers that recovery workers would experience. The image below shows thermal hotspots at Ground Zero revealed by the Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) instrument on September 16, 2001. The instrument was flown over the area on a De Havilland Twin Otter aircraft by NASA to obtain temperature readings for emergency responders. The data analysis showed temperatures greater than 425 degrees Celsius (800 degrees Fahrenheit) in many areas (orange pixels) and greater than 700 degrees Celsius (1300 F) in a few spots (yellow pixels). Temperatures had significantly cooled by September 23. Dust studies revealed substances typical of building construction, including gypsum, glass fibers, and concrete. Chrysolite Asbestos particles were found in samples at generally less than one percent weight. During the process of rebuilding, deep excavation of the bedrock has revealed new insight into the geology of New York City. At the site of the future Tower 4, ancient glacier features from 20,000 years ago were uncovered, including a 40 foot deep pothole. The Earth Story pauses to remember the September 11, 2001 losses with you. -AmyReferences:http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/fs-0050-02/fs-050-02_508.pdfhttp://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2001/ofr-01-0429/thermal.r09.htmlhttp://www.nbcnews.com/id/26844329/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/ice-age-geology-revealed-ground-zero/#.UjCHXBsqjzYImage credit NASA and USGS

There are some people out there that still believe that animals are just dumb beasts, but the unlikely animal friendships I’ve gathered here will prove that they are capable of feeling love and compassion just like we are.

Confused husky pup

He’s not expressing confusion, he’s tilting his head for better sound localization. While having an ear on each side of the head is good for lateral echolocation, tilting the head so that the ears are offset gives it vertical depth.
