Armadillo Lizard (Cordylus cataphractus)

This tiny dragon-like lizard is one extraordinary creature. The females give live birth to her young, making this one of the only lizard species that doesn’t lay eggs. Probably most unusual aspect of the Armadillo Lizard though is its defense strategy: When in danger, the lizard will take its tail into its mouth and roll into a ball. When in this position, it is protected from predators by the thick, plate-like scales and spikes on its tail. Sadly these awesome creatures are critically endangered!

An Ouroboros!

The musical number "Paris Holds the Key (To Your Heart)" includes cameos by various historical characters from the time including Maurice Chevalier, Sigmund Freud, Charles A. Lindbergh, Josephine Baker, Claude Monet, Isadora Duncan, Auguste Rodin, and Gertrude Stein.

I’d like to point out Freud slips on that banana peel.

A Freudian slip.

  • Me:

    Talks about thing I like

  • RL friends:

    I don't really care. Let's talk about things I like. They're a lot better. I mean, the things you like suck.

  • Family:

    God, you're a geek. Why can't you like normal things? Now shoo, I have more important things to listen to.

  • Internet friends:

    I know, right? I love that thing too! I'm so excited!

  • Me:

    Talks about feelings and personal problems

  • RL friends:

    Oh, okay, but that's not /that/ bad did I ever tell you about the time that this one thing happened to me and it was 3290259059059x worse?? Why don't we talk about my feelings? They're more important.

  • Family:

    Oh god here you go again with your teenage angst! Please shut up already.

  • Internet friends:

    Oh my god. I am so, so sorry. Are you alright? Do you want to talk about it? I sort of understand in a way, but this isn't about me, it's about you. Just remember that it gets better. Don't give up, please. I believe in you.

  • Me:

    Talks to internet friends

  • Family and RL friends:

    Why do you go online and on your phone so much? God, what are you, antisocial? What's your issue?

  • Internet friends:

    Don't worry, I'm here for you. I wish I could hug you right now.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
