Simon Harsent - Irene

"On August 28th 2011 Hurricane Irene made landfall over New York’s Coney Island with winds at 65 mph. It hit New York City at 9 a.m. ET bringing with it a storm surge that sent 3½ feet of water into New York Harbor. Although downgraded to a tropical storm, it still flooded low-lying areas and left millions of homes without power all along the Eastern Seaboard."

Deep-sea Dendrogramma creatures found off Australia could 'reshape tree of life'

NO BUT GUYS

SERIOUSLY

THESE CANNOT BE PLACED IN ANY PHYLA

THEY ARE NOT A NEW SPECIES OF JELLYFISH OR CRAP OR SQUIRRELFISH OR SOME SHIT

THEY ARE LITERALLY UNCLASSIFIABLE BY TAXONOMIC CONVENTIONS

ok ok ok  heads up for an extremely excited hooted and half-assed explanation.

You have “The Tree of life”

so it basically goes like an (extremely shitty) diagram:

as you can imagine, it gets weirdly specific. May not worms with piercings that slept with your mum, but worms, and then worms with segments are separate phyla, much the same way as there’s a clear differential between worms with horns and worms that have a central gut and ok there are lot of worm species, anyway.

Ok. So you have humans, which are under several other layers deeper, but our Phylum is Chordata which means we have a spinal cord, or functional approximation thereof.  Of course lots of other animals have them, which is where the tree then branches out to “Things with spine-like thingies that are on the outside (that’s the subphylum) and then “Things with spine-like thingies that are on the outside that are spiders” (class) “Things with spine-like thingies that are on the outside  that are spiders that have pointy bums” (order) “Things with spines that are spiders that have pointy bums and wear party hats”  ( family)  “Things with spines that are spiders that have pointy bums and wear party hats and are called Kevin” (genus) and  “Things with spines that are spiders that have pointy bums and wear party hats and are called Kevin” and slept with your mum” (species)

(Shut up I know there is a great deal of crap in there, I’m laymanning it with hilarity)

The thing is…These beasties? They don’t actually fit into any existing phyla And those fucking phyla get really really broad

Then there’s also the fun fact that, oh, scientists are currently working on the theory that these may actually be a deviation of a species that was kicking round about 635 and 540 million years ago and were one of the first attempts of multicellular life


She’s incredibly sweet, funny, down to earth, genuine, doesn’t take herself seriously in any way shape or form. Which it’s the most honorable quality that I love in anyone. I look for that. And she has that in buckets. I think she’s really gone deeper than I’ve ever seen her. She’s the kind of person who brings in cookies and banana bread. - Andrew Garfield on Emma Stone

it scares me that you never know what someone is thinking or feeling towards you and everything that they say could be one massive lie
