Displayed in the Saint-Étienne church in France is the figure of René de Chalon, Prince of Orange. The prince died at the young age of 25 during the siege of Saint-Dizier in 1544.
Rather then memorialize him in the standard hero form, his wife requested (or René himself requested, or possibly both) that he be shown as “not a standard figure but a life-size skeleton with strips of dried skin flapping over a hollow carcass, whose right hand clutches at the empty rib cage while the left hand holds high his heart in a grand gesture.” (Source)

a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)
That’s exactly the appropriate response.

There comes a point where you should just let go of people who clearly don’t give a fuck. It becomes easier each time.
Lions Save Kidnapped Girl
if lions are coming to rescue someone, you have to know what you’re doing is wrong. you know, in that moment before you’re torn in to tiny little pieces by said lions
apparently its been proven that animals will react to the cries of children regardless of what child it is. like wolves will react to human baby cries and even deer will react to human baby cries. they’ll try to find the child to help it. its some motherly instinct thing that all mammals share or something like that.
im not sure where i heard this but i think it was from psychology book my friend was reading.
There was one little boy who fell into the gorilla pen at a zoo and he just laid there and cried and this HUGE alpha male gorilla (or whatever the dominant gorilla is called) went over and actually stood watch over the little boy to make sure none of the other gorillas attacked him.
It has to be a mammal (deer won’t react to baby birds, for example) but yes this is true ^^
so basically it’s the same reaction we get when we see baby mammals
everything now makes sense
Rule of thumb-
If you’re going to sit around and cry about South park offending you every week- Don’t fucking watch it.
