3D Camo

Those things growing out of this giant Australian cuttlefish (Sepia apama) are its skin papillae. It can extend and retract its papillae at will, helping it alter its texture to better blend in with its surroundings.

Both papillae expression and color change are controlled by visual, not tactile, cues. This means that these guys don’t need to actually touch anything to decide on their camouflage strategy.

Just by looking, they are clever enough to decide what sort of color, pattern, and texture is needed to virtually disappear.

There are an increasing amount of threatening conflicts in the world, in case you haven’t noticed, but I’m sure you did. Here some quotes from wise wen on the topic:
Friendship is the only cure for hatred, the only guarantee of peace. (Buddha)
You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place. (Jesus)
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

Raining Spiders

In the southern Brazilian town of Santo Antônio da Platina, hundreds of spiders can be seen hanging from telephone and power poles.

The species of spider are Anelosimus eximius, which are classified as social spiders. They weave a massive web which allows them to capture bigger or more prey than an individual spider’s web would.

holy fuck NO

The Turkish company Pugedon has recently introduced a vending machine that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and our furry friends. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well.

This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food. So, with a little financial investment, the simple machines do a lot of good. They provide a steady source of sustenance to the animals, many of which rely on caring residents to regularly feed them. It also encourages people to make a habit of recycling and help conserve our environment for future generations.

Put these everywhere

EVERYWHERE.
