    I was so fond of my 1:1 goose I decided to finish the family with the higher end model.

    I got very lucky at Value Village the other day, I found a Smithsonian Dragonfly! At first I thought it was the Hidden Kingdom dragonfly so that was a pleasant surprise. My shelf of large terrestrial inverts is quickly expanding. The tip of the tail is worn down but other than that great...

    Acquisitions for June and July: Schleich Alligator Boxed Set - Not normally one for Schleich, but at $4 I practically felt obligated to buy them! Papo Barn Owl and Albino(?) Nile Crocodile - I chose the albino since being the juvenile it can double as an albino alligator whereas the...

    I was fortunate enough to receive an amazing Flashforge Finder for my graduation, here's a quick sample of what's been finished so far (a few other things printed that I haven't painted yet). And that Macaw skull has larger aspirations still: I'm thinking of creating a full scale...

    The other day I bought a third (yes third) Squawkers McCaw/Macaw with the hope of hacking/reprogramming it as a summer project. No luck on that yet, but in the meantime I skinned it (and repainted some of the parts to look more like a robotic parrot, rather than like the insides of a robotic...

    For a long while now I've been seeing these lovely display stands (I think they're from a Japanese store on YAJ that makes them by hand, but don't quote me on that), and I've been thinking it would be fun to make one. I actually finished it some time ago but I only just got it set up in a...

    I made a Microraptor skeletal, there must totally be a shortage of those. This is for an upcoming project, keep your eyes peeled in the coming months (especially if you own a 3D printer). If you're curious about the pose it's in the initial downstroke during a takeoff.

    This. I have a slightly personal hatred of Clinton and I'd rather see basically anyone in the white house (besides Cruz because he's a psycho).

    Expect to be seeing something else before this is finished but it's the first extinct thing I've started in a long while so I figured I'd post the plans for it. Unfortunately I don't have a reference for how tall Figmas are at hand.

    Well, as it turns out the thing I was planning didn't work out so well after all, so here's the touched up tailless version. I'm pleasantly surprised to find the balance hasn't been noticeably altered (which is to say it still barely stands up).

    Repainted Safari ltd. Raphus based loosely on the painting by Ustad Mansur but having done it from memory I only realized after uploading these that I goofed a few bits. I opted to keep the tail however inaccurate since I have something else planned with this model in the very near future, but I...

    I mean yah she sounds like an idiot but she's kind of right. What if she really was trying to find her seat? Kicking someone out without first asking them to stop, and without giving them a refund is absolutely not how a theater should handle that sort of situation.

    It's largely the fault of the urban myth created by the "Gaia Hypothesis" and its silly claims of the Earth being a single organized system. The creator at one point tried to justify these claims by coming up with a far fetched story about global warming collapsing the Gulf Stream and creating...

    The only issue is that if we go that far we might as well say the idea of god is in itself just humans applying our own morals onto natural or coincidental phenomena that we didn't understand. I'm not even going to bother answering this recent poll.

    1. It's obviously just a bluff to gain appeal of right wing voters. Cruz however might be serious about his religious extremism. 2. They aren't already closed to all refugees? If anything they need to open their borders more in general, same for most places honestly. 3. It is objective and...

    Both are definitely causing problems, the real question is which causes which currently. As much as it definitely IS RACIST for police to target blacks, in some areas it's not completely invalid. IE if I was a police officer in an area with a lot of gang activity I would be more suspicious of...

    Sorry for taking so long to get these pictures up, I haven't been feeling well this week. It's not nearly finished, the bottom still needs sand (which is more difficult than I'd anticipated) and then I still need to make the flora arrangements.

    After so much time underground I was very surprised today when I saw a crab molting in the middle of its food dish. I was very nervous about it molting in the plum mash so since it had just started I moved it (I used a scoop which is what I read to do). I was very nervous moving it but it seemed...

    I don't see how that changes anything. Was the kid actually having trouble or did the add spell it out? Because the latter is dumb and patronizing but I wouldn't say racist but if you're calling some random kid racist for actually not knowing how to eat a taco that's a pretty dick move on your end.

    Reassignment isn't something life threatening so it shouldn't be covered by government health care, hormones maybe, but reassignment is hardly necessary to trans peoples mental or physical health.
