The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?

This time last year I was unemployed, broke, and suicidal.
Today, I just got the keys to my first house.
Give it time.
Needed this today
when you hear people preach that it gets better, they aren’t joking. if it’s not better yet, it will be.
this post could literally be saving lives rn and that is why i love this website.
when someone tells you to sit with your legs closed
1. Literal: bringing or giving light.
2. Figurative: mentally illuminating; providing insight.
Etymology: from Latin lūcifer, ”light bringer”.
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is, “It’s okay.” It’s okay for me to be kind to myself. It’s okay to be wrong. It’s okay to get mad. It’s okay to be flawed. It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to move on.
THIS IS THE CUTEST THING EVER
they both look a little nervous about what the other one might write
then just the biggest smiles when they are reassured yet again how much they just love each other

interviewer: so do you have any special talents
interviewer: you cant make that face in real life
interviewer: shit boy!!

This right here. This is why we need to make this movie a commercial success even if some of us find the story formulaic. If it underperforms or outright fails, it might be a long time before we see a film like it again. If it all.
Please watch it please
The last movie i remember with a Mexican protag that was animated was Los tres caballeros from 1987
And even THAT doesn’t really count
But isn’t Channing Tatum one of the voice actors? How is it a Mexican movie with white voice actors?
ah, yes, how foolish of me, clearly 3 white voice actors (one of whom plays an non-human god, one of whom plays the only significant white character in the movie) cancel out the rest of the Latinx and Mexican voice cast, and the Mexican director (who is also the writer), and the Mexican character designers, and the Mexican producer, and the fact that is a movie about Mexican characters set in Mexico based heavily on Mexican culture and customs
pardon my snippiness but i can only take people trying to discredit this movie because of one dang white dude so many times
