These tiny shrimp-like crustaceans called ostracods have an incredible defense mechanism: when eaten by a translucent cardinalfish they release bioluminescent chemicals in an attempt to ILLUMINATE THE FISH FROM THE INSIDE. Not wanting to be eaten by predators itself, the cardinalfish immediately spits out the ostracod. [VIDEO]

There is no good and evil there is only power
Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008. It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there. It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them. A larger work gets talked about from time to time. It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories. Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
I am reblogging Ducks to send you the link to Todd Korol’s photo series on the Alberta oil sands. It even comes with a scarecrow. My sketches are very loose, and suggest things that are bigger, but it is something else to see them, and it is rare for me to see a set of images that evokes the place so clearly. I think it is a good compliment to getting a bigger picture. (Link)
Today is National Coffee Day, but here, from our Tumblr Archives, is a contrary view on some alleged drawbacks to its enjoyment.
The women’s petition against coffee : representing to publick consideration the grand inconveniencies accruing to their sex from the excessive use of that drying, enfeebling liquor, 1674.
"Our men, who in former Ages were justly esteemed the Ablest Performers in Christendome; But to our unspeakable Grief, we find of late a very sensible Decay of that true Old English Vigor; our Gallants being every way so Frenchified, that they are become meer Cock-sparrows, fluttering things that come on Sa sa, with a world of Fury, but are not able to stand to it, and in the very first Charge fall down flat before us. Never did Men wear greater breeches, or carry less in them of any Mettle whatsoever."
The mens answer to the womens petition against coffee : vindicating their own performances, and the vertues of that liquor, from the undeserved aspersions lately cast upon them, by their scandalous pamphlet, 1674.
