this has been a PSA

Jesus fucking christ

This is exactly the kind of shit I was talking about. I had a rant some weeks ago about people ‘hiding’ comments in their tags, and the response was mainly two things: Either people did it just because they preferred it that way for whatever reason (which in the end is really their business), or this, which is something that until I made that post I had no idea about. I didn’t know this shit was a thing. I had no idea people actually posted shit like this, because it just seems so fucking unreal.

This is bullshit, and the person who posted this is bullshit by extension.
This is some fucked up elitist mentality that only some thoughts are “worthy” of being made. That if your response doesn’t live up to their standards then why the fuck are you posting it? Keep your mouth shut because what you have to say isn’t worth hearing! This of course is further ingrained by the use of excessive caps and emoticons in the original post suggesting that anyone who makes a response like that is a child or an idiot, because there’s no faster or lazier way to discredit the other side than to imitate them with fevered, emoticon-littered writing.

Well I say fuck that. I produce my own content (and I don’t mean compiling TV gifsets) and I want to see everything everyone has to say. Even if it’s just AAAA THIS SCARED ME or WOWOWOW THIS IS SUPER CUUUUTE WOW, seeing that kind of response means a lot to me. It means I evoked that kind of response. That’s very flattering! And for people to want to censor others because they think their thoughts aren’t important or worthwhile enough to be read, frankly, that’s disgusting. No one should be pressured into feeling like they have to shut up especially on a subject and medium like motherfucking Tumblr. It’s like telling someone “GET OFF MY POST”.

And I mean let’s think practically about this, too: It’s not like every time someone reblogs your post AND ADDS TEXT a man comes to your door and sits you down and reads it out loud off a telegram. What happens is that the little list that shows “so and so reblogged your post” has one additional line of text on it saying “AND ADDED: [COMMENT YOU DON’T THINK WAS WORTH YOUR TIME]”. I would say it takes one extra second to scroll past but the amount of time spent scrolling that additional line is so insignificant I couldn’t even measure it. Most people who address this spend way more time complaining about it than they ever would spend being inconvenienced by having to read what people thought of their post (god forbid)

So in summation this whole toxic, bullshit mentality of “Hey plebeians who have the privilege of looking at my stuff! Here’s how you are and are not allowed to respond to it!” is awful and so arrogant I almost didn’t believe it was real
If you want to sort of stash your thoughts away in tags, I can’t force you not to by any means
But you should never feel like you have to hide your thoughts because they’re not ‘good enough’.
Especially not here.

for real, yo

Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better! 

(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)  

I love that this is on the Smithsonian’s tumblr

Whoever does social media for the Smithsonian is awesome.

very cute QUAIL making QUAIL NOISES

IIM TEARING UP I LOVE QUAILS SO MMUUCH

I never knew any quail besides the California Quail of home and this bird was odd to me, I’ve never seen a quail like this one before.

So, doing a little digging, I found this is a Bobwhite Quail, a species common in eastern North America but also sighted as far south as Mexico and the Caribbean. The male has high-contrast white and black facial markings while the female (shown here) has low-contrast, ruddy copper facial markings.
