Ever seen the hairy tongue of a nectar-feeding bat lap up its liquid lunch in high-speed video? You’re gonna like it.
It’s the first detailed analysis of these prickly papillae at the tip of bat tongues, showing how they expand to catch the most of their sugary snack. Yet another example of amazing evolution, particularly in a class of life that one can argue was not really intended to hover and fly while they eat (AKA “mammals”)

You guys! Bat tongues! Seriously!
All right, we get it. Your life is beautiful. Your life takes place in picturesque urban and rural settings. You eat lovely breakfasts on weathered tables adorned with cloth napkins and perfectly chipped plates. You eat at the local dive where the poutine comes in a paper basket with a checkered…
This morning, Timehop reminded me of one of the best things I’ve ever read about Tumblr. Thanks, Will.
In the back of my mind, I keep a list. It’s a list of industrial designers who never attempted to clean the things that they designed.
At the top of it today is the man (and I’m sure it was a man) who designed my refrigerator, and unaccountably thought it would be a good idea to attach the meat drawer (the meat drawer!) in such a way that I have to use a screwdriver to take it off the shelf it’s attached to before I can put it in the sink to wash it. And since the screws in question are located at the back of the drawer, I have to take the shelf out of the refrigerator first.
There’s a reason we keep most of the meat in the freezer, and save the meat drawer for tortillas, cheese, and bread—you know, things that don’t ooze blood.
My latest contract in a long series of contracts is ending in two weeks, which means that I’m going through the “looking for work” dance again. (A point can be made that I’ve ALWAYS been going through the “looking for work” dance, and that I’ll simply be ramping up my efforts in this regard, but that’s not entirely accurate, and anyway, I’m digressing from my point.)
If anyone who reads this has a line on a job, I’d be grateful for the opportunity to chat.
Tumblr, this is MightyHunter. He’s looking for a job. Maybe you know of one he would enjoy?
Hi guys I’m obsessed with this shit lately because I don’t want anyone to have unhappy, unsupported boobs like I did. Even if you think your boobs and bras are fine, try it. It will make a big difference in comfort, support, and shape, even if you have small boobs or big boobs. A proper fitting…
This is a funny, foul-mouthed guide to finding a bra that fits.
