Meet Pickles, aka “Catosaurus.” He was rescued in Boston and he’s over 3 feet long.

GIVE ME THIS CAT

If we’re talking three feet from nose to tailtip, then this cat is actually not thaaaat much bigger than my cat.

Also he has the same stripes on the top of his feet and black fur on the bottom.

Coronal rain

On July 19, 2012, an eruption occurred on the sun that produced a moderately powerful solar flare and a dazzling magnetic display known as coronal rain. Hot plasma in the corona cooled and condensed along strong magnetic fields in the region. Magnetic fields, are invisible, but the charged plasma is forced to move along the lines, showing up brightly in the extreme ultraviolet wavelength of 304 Angstroms, and outlining the fields as it slowly falls back to the solar surface.

Volcano eruption from the International Space Station
A fortuitous orbit of the International Space Station allowed the astronauts this striking view of Sarychev Volcano (Kuril Islands, northeast of Japan) in an early stage of eruption on June 12, 2009. Sarychev Peak is one of the most active volcanoes in the Kuril Island chain, and it is located on the northwestern end of Matua Island.

i’m so upset

I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb

they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!

I can’t

present active boōpresent infinitive boāreperfect active boāvīsupine boātum

Recte!

if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter

do they speak latin because it’s a dead language

Hannah Bunce Watson (1749-1807)

Art by Julian Lozos (tumblrtwitterdeviantart) 

Hannah was a young mother of five children when the death of her husband Ebenezer made her the owner of the Connecticut Courant in 1777.At the time, the Courant had the largest circulation of any newspaper in North America.  As the British had shut down Boston’s newspapers and only allowed loyalist papers in New York to publish, the Connecticut Courant was one of the fewindependent sources of news in the colonies.

In January 1778, loyalists set fire to the mill that produced paper for the Courant.  This could have meant the end of publication for the Courant.  Hannah and Sarah Ledyard, co-owners of the mill, petitioned the Connecticut legislature for funds to rebuild the mill.  A state lottery was established to finance the rebuilding of the mill and the Connecticut Courant continued to publish without interruption.

Hannah’s newspaper is today known as the Hartford Courant and you can follow them on tumblr.
