Another positive bunny post! It’s been crazy rough handling life right now, but then I remember all the times I’ve done it before (with even more stress). And then I think “hey, I’ve made it before, and I can do it again”. Except this time, I’ll do it even better.
Thank you positive Bunny post. I needed you in my life tonight
"Anne Bonny and Mary Read were pirates, as renowned for their ruthlessness as for their gender, and during their short careers challenged the sailors’ adage that a woman’s presence on shipboard invites bad luck."
I’m not entirely sure that the statue really needed to have a tit out.
How dare women try to have nipples.
Actually I’ve seen this before and I can tell you— it’s because these women were bad ass pirates and when they killed someone they’d expose one or both breasts so that when their victim died, (s)he knew that they were killed by a woman.
ACTUALLY Anne Bonny purposely wore loose fitting clothes and displayed her breasts openly at all times during battle - mainly because men were distracted by them, and she took pleasure in killing said men while they were too busy staring at her breasts. Mary Read dressed mainly as a man (after posing as her deceased brother, Mark, for the entirety of her childhood) and both ladies cross-dressed from time to time, hopping between ships. They were known as the ‘fierce hell cats’ due to their ferocious tempers, and were key elements to Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham’s crew - they were the only two known female pirates in the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. IN FACT, when the ship was captured by the British Navy, Anne and Mary were the ONLY TWO pirates who fought while the males of the crew hid - they were all tried to be hung as pirates but Bonny and Read were both pregnant and were pardoned.
Calico Jack was a lover to Bonny, and as he was to be hung, Bonny’s final words to him were, “Had you fought like a man, you need not be hung like a dog.” Bonny and Read were possibly two of the most badass fucking pirates and they were FEMALE. The more you know.
Totally had an ale named after Anne Bonny and it was delicious. But not quite as delicious as this amazing story of lady pirates.

A tutorial to make digitigrade hooves using old high-heeled shoes, some skills and a bit of patience & dedication - from littlerockarcheopteryx's imgur album, many thanks to foreveranonymousfa (tumblr blog) for the link - a similar tutorial for paws (but useful also for hooves) can be found at this tumblr blog.
A video of some hoof-shoes in action can be found on Kanti Kane's youtube channel - quite realistic - but such hoof-shoes are probably not too handy for rough terrain and surely need some exercise (and caution) to be worn…
Scientists have revived a giant virus that was buried in Siberian ice for 30,000 years — and it is still infectious. Its targets are amoebae, but the researchers suggest that as Earth’s ice melts, this could trigger the return of other ancient viruses, with potential risks for human health.
The newly thawed virus is the biggest one ever found. At 1.5 micrometres long, it is comparable in size to a small bacterium. Evolutionary biologists Jean-Michel Claverie and Chantal Abergel, the husband-and-wife team at Aix-Marseille University in France who led the work, named it Pithovirus sibericum, inspired by the Greek word ‘pithos’ for the large container used by the ancient Greeks to store wine and food. “We’re French, so we had to put wine in the story,” says Claverie. The results are published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences1
Larger than some bacteria, this virus — seen in a cross-section under a transmission electron microscope — was still able to infect amoebae despite having spent 30 millennia in a frozen state. Julia Bartoli & Chantal Abergel; Information Génomique et Structurale, CNRS-AMU
Climate change could mean bigger meaner viruses
Don’t know if I reblogged this yet, but yes I am the hooping kitty cat in this massive YCH Rave Auction by Oce.
This was a doodle I did way back about 4 months ago that I decided to color digitally while working on how I want to use Painter Tool Sai. She’s a water bender/sorceress? I don’t know you tell me.
Hulahooper in a skirt. This is just me messing around with Sai. And to prove I can still draw humans
