Things I learnt today: During WW1, MI5 used Girl Guides to send secret messages. They used Girl Guides because they quickly found that Boy Scouts couldn’t be trusted and weren’t efficient enough.
the boy scouts were too gossipy, so they used girl guides as spies instead this is probably the best day of my life
OH VAMPIRE LAKE

In the World of Darkness, there are vampires of the Gangrel clan that live at the bottom of the ocean and gradually go deeper and deeper. They end up looking like those freaky fish only freakier because that is or was a person.

Bwahahaha! that’s amazing.
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?

It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the
Eye of the tiger
