So here’s how this goes:
I have a hatchling rack that is currently holding around 60 baby ball pythons that we have hatched this year. The way I feed them is to go down the entire rack and drop either live pinky rat or a fuzzy mouse into each tub. Once I drop in the last one, I start back at the beginning and check to make sure they’re eating and if not I remove the rodent. So I get back around to checking on this baby and she’s not only cradling her fuzzy mouse while it sleeps, but when I try to take it she gets pissy and protects it from me. This is ridiculously adorable.
Okay, so i normally would never reblog snakes because i have a phobia of them, but this.. this right here.. i dunno man this is pretty freaking cute okay
The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
