Everything You Need To Know About UFOs. On July 2nd avid watchers of the skies celebrate World UFO day—the anniversary of the supposed crash of a flying saucer near Roswell in 1947. Helpfully, the National UFO Reporting Centre, a non-profit, has catalogued almost 90,000 reported sightings of UFOs, mostly in America, since 1974. It turns out that aliens are considerate. They seldom disturb earthlings during working or sleeping hours. Rather, they tend to arrive in the evening, especially on Fridays, when folks are sitting on the front porch nursing their fourth beer, the better to appreciate flashing lights in the heavens (see chart).

Interesting!

“Sometimes, it makes me sad that people don’t know about the Subspecies movies and don’t realize that Radu is the most perfect vampire to ever appear in any film.”

Oh man, Subspecies!
I’ve only heard of them through the TGWTG reviewer Obscurus Lupa (who reviewed all four movies as well as occasionally dresses up as Radu in reviews), but ever since I watched the reviews recently I’ve been meaning to give them a go. I love vampire stuff, and the films seem like the perfect mix of campiness and spookiness. Radu sounds amazing.
I’ll try to keep them in my brain so if I want to watch something new and I come across them, I’ll remember them and finally give them a shot.

Bet you didn’t see that coming! Watch these clever cephalopods capture prey in less time than it takes to say “tentacle.”

It’s pretty obvious by now my love of sea life and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. And look at these guys! I particularly love the one octopus that hides inside the two mollusk shells to trick unsuspecting prey.

Cephalopods, especially octopi, are well known for their intelligence. See here: http://www.orionmagazine.org/index.php/articles/article/6474/

They have their own personalities, can solve puzzles easily, and some species can even shape themselves to look like things like flatfish.

Cephalopods are amazing.

Hey, horror fans! The creepypasta wiki is currently running a fundraiser for the 12-year-old victim of yesterday’s stabbing in Waukesha, Wisconsin. You can read more about the incident here, but the gist of it is: this poor young girl was lured into the forest by two of her friends and stabbed nineteen times because they thought it would connect them with Slenderman. (Yes, that Slenderman.) News reports say that she crawled to safety and is currently in stable condition, but she still has a very long road of mental and physical recovery ahead of her. One of her stab wounds missed an essential artery by less than a centimeter. 
Please spread this around. This young woman needs all the help we can provide, and every little bit counts.

Hey I want to point out this as like 35k notes, but the fundraiser is only at 2,000 with 25,000 being the goal that’s 23,000k left to go.
If anyone that has a card and a at least 5 bucks to spend, please donate.
