Tumblr Thread: The Cold-Blooded Freak Devil Cave Goat

Tumblr looked at this evolutionary dead-end of a forward-eye-facing cold-blooded cave goat and decided: "good." Sometimes tumblr gets ahold of some biology or history knowledge and extrapolates the ever-loving reality out of it like when they went full mythological science on dragon evolution. For another interesting learning experience here's Tumblr's thread on Kudzu, the monster plant waging war with everything.

What happens when you miss your sled at the top of the track? Elena Nikita probably wants to keep this skeleton in her closet.

Now this is a mad tea party.

A man was snorkeling in the Colorado River on Monday, when he was shocked to find two skeletons.

He quickly contacted the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office about the “human remains,” and they sent personnel out to investigate.

The sheriff’s office reported wrote about the incident on their Facebook page Monday, with a video one of their divers took of the scene.

“When Firefighter Foerstner located the alleged remains, he found it to be an underwater tea-party with two fake skeletons sitting in lawn chairs,” they wrote.

Fortunately they were not real bones, but we still don’t know who put them there and why.

There are some clues however, so the Internet can speculate to their heart’s content.

One of the skeletons was wearing a pair of aviator sunglasses, and the the other was holding a sign that contained what appears to be the phrase “Bernie Livin the Dream in the River” as well as the date “August 16, 2014.”

This has some people thinking it is some sort of “Weekend at Bernie’s” joke.

The police told AP they won’t be looking into it any further.

“I don’t think they were trying to set up anything to scare anyone. I think they were gonna try to be funny,” said Lt. Curtis Bagby.

Never before has a bunch of skeletons been so heartwarming.

A new ad from the Ad Council shows people of all different ages, genders, races, sexualities, ethnicities, disabilities and religions coming together behind a digital screen.

The viewers only see their skeletons at first kissing, dancing and hugging with Mary Lambert’s “She Keeps Me Warm” playing in the background, until the real people step out to reveal themselves.

The spot is part of their “Love Has No Labels” campaign, and it already has over 1.5 million views since it was released on Tuesday. It was shot on Valentine’s Day of this year.

From the Ad Council:

Subconscious prejudice—called “implicit bias”—has profound implications for how we view and interact with others who are different from us. It can hinder a person’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment, or get a fair trial, perpetuating disparities in American society. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues.

You will cry. So be prepared.
