They blamed dorsal fin collapse on genetics?!?? While a whale is floating listlessly unmoving to five straight minutes, (probably longer) NO ONE asked why the whale wasn’t moving?!? They asked about his flopped over dorsal fin!
Marine life states:
In captivity, dorsal fin collapse may be related to several factors, including time spent at the water surface, swimming in the same direction in a relatively small pool. The tissue in the dorsal fin gets less of a workout, and less support in the water than it would in a wild whale, and starts to fall over. The same thing can happen to the whale’s tail flukes, which often flop over at the ends. Other causes may be dehydration due to warmer water and air temperatures.
She didn’t say it was genetics, she said it’s because graivty takes it’s course. Which is true, because the fins collapse because thy don’t experience the same amount of water pressure as a whale in the wild.

a magician asks you to pick a card - any card, in fact. you do. they ask you to put the card back in the pack - anywhere in the pack, in fact. you do. they walk away. ten years later, your wife gives birth to the six of clubs. “is this your card?” the midwife asks, in a familiar voice.
what the fuck
What I love most about the kindle is that you can get the kindle app on your phone and computer. It was a life saver when I hadn’t bought a book I needed for class.
There are still reasons to read books. Physical fetishism is a big one. You might get a visceral reaction from the touch, the smell, the weight of a good book. You might also feel emotionally superior or more important while carrying a sophisticated book in a crowd of bookless…
“Ever asked a non-drinker why they don’t drink? Same fucking answer every time. You go, why don’t you drink? And they go, I don’t like the taste of it.
Nobody does. No one likes the taste of it, but we drink because we fucking have to. No one has ever had a shot of tequila and gone, oh, that’s lovely. Next time, I’ll have that instead of pudding, it’s so moreish. We drink because life’s shit and you gotta do whatever you can to get through the fucking day.”
