If your quarry goes hard, leave no home to go to

What's brought you my way, drifter?   Submit   I have a lot of opinions on things. They evolve constantly, as do my interests, though they are glacially slow to do so; therein, I have no idea how to tell you what to expect. I love discussion, especially when someone involves is impassioned on the subject. I post clouds in masse, when I'm in a poor place. I speak out constantly on discrimination, especially in the case of LGBT folk and disordered folk, including my own personal struggle in both arenas.

Remember that people just want to own their own existences, to have the autonomy to increase their happiness and decrease their own suffering more than others have that control or right. Be kind, open, pliant, and alert. Fight, in whatever respect, only after this and only with discipline thereafter.

Check out the awesomely long tails on these roosters! These regal specimens are Onagadori or “Long-tailed” chickens. They’re a breed of chicken from the Kōchi Prefecture of Japan who evolved from common domestic chickens who mated with Green Junglefowl. Also known as the ‘most honorable fowl’ in Japan, they’ve been carefully bred over the centuries to achieve their spectacular tails, which grow to lengths of 12 to 27 feet. It takes these chickens at least three years to molt. Onagadori breeders take tremendous pride in their chickens and provide special hutches with perches well above the ground, which helps keep their tails clean and in good condition.

If Rapunzel had been a chicken, she probably would’ve looked a lot like one of these awesome birds. These extraordinarily fancy fowl have Special Natural Monument status in Japan, which means they’re considered to be living monuments of Japanese culture and, as a protected breed, it’s illegal to take their eggs out of the country.

today I learned that in the 1600s the Pasha of Algiers made it a capital offense to remove one’s thumbs from one’s girdle while having an argument, in an attempt to limit brawling. as a result, street fights are reported to have become a combination of shouting vicious insults, headbutting each other, and trying to punch one another with their elbows. i am imagining five or six enraged men furiously trying so hard to kill each other with only their elbows, and i am laughing so hard i am fucking wheezing

Either eliminate brawling, or invent slapstick, so either way, win.
