I really liked the way the second panel turned out.
My sting ray fell out of the chandelier
i don’t even know the context of this but this is the best post i’ve seen in a while
I told my dad that someone reblogged this and he wants it to be known that he was the one who started the whole ‘sting ray in the chandelier’ thing
I may have taught this spider to knit.
I was finishing the last 20 rows at the park, when this little spider wandered over to me, It climbed up my knitting bag, and walked all up and down the piece, then climbed onto my hand and watched me for a couple rows.
After the second row it started waving it’s front four legs as if to get my attention. Once I was looking at it, it started pulling silk from its spinneret, and fiddling with it. I don’t know if it was knitting or purling as it was quite small scale, but every few seconds it would stop and look up at me to see if I was still watching. After a little bit I moved it to one of the vines overhanging the archway I was sitting in, and it went about its business.
This wasn’t the only unusual thing that happened at the park today, but it was the most unusual.
Maybe it thought you were a spider
I’m gonna level with you that’s the fucking cutest shit I have ever fucking heard of okay I want a little spider that knits not sits menacingly above my bed at night threatening to fall into my mouth.

THE LARVAE (AND ADULT FEMALE) OF THE TRILOBITE BEETLE
The trilobite [beetle] genus (Duliticola) belongs to the family Lycidae, commonly known as net-winged beetles.
This family is a pretty interesting one, because many of its species display huge physical differences between their males and their females. Trilobite beetles are no exception. While the females are easily recognisable – that incredible form is retained from when they were larvae [see Wikipedia neoteny] – the males look entirely different. They pretty much just look like plain old beetles, with long, winged bodies and a pair of thick antennae.

PEACOP IN HOT PURSUIT MEOOOOOW
someone requested resources/tips for dealing with paranoia, there’s very few resources i’ve seen for this sort of thing, having dealt with it myself i know it’s pretty tough to deal with. here are some tips from my own experiences and a few websites (i’ll include links later in the post)
- get enough sleep. i know it can be hard to get sleep sometimes, i’ve had terrible insomnia my whole life and its still a daily struggle to get enough rest, but getting enough sleep makes so much difference. if you struggle with sleeping here are some resources
- for help with nightmares,
- avoid drugs, alcohol and caffeine, i don’t want to sound like your middle school health teacher here but drugs and alcohol can really hurt you badly if you have any sort of mental disorder or if you’re on any medication. caffeine can trigger manic episodes and cause complications with adderall and other ADHD/ADD medication. even drugs that are used casually without any harmful effects can cause a bad reaction if your brain chemical balence is abnormal or if you’re on any medication.
- eat well and drink lots of water. this is just a general health thing, if you’re not eating/drinking enough your whole system is out of wack
useful things to try during a paranoid episode, a lot of these are used in cognitive behavioural therapy, one of the most successful therapy techniques currently being used. if you have/could get access to a therapist/mental health professional ask about this method because a trained professional can really help in some cases.
- recognize patterns of thought, think back to previous paranoid episodes and see how your thoughts develop and if they stem from a trigger of some sort. try and remember this pattern so you can recognize it in the future and use that realization to comfort yourself and remind yourself that your thinking isn’t rational
- write down a list of evidence to challenge your harmful thoughts. basically make two columns, write your thought down and then write evidence that supports your thought and evidence that doesn’t support it. something like this
- this website is a really really excellent guide to self-help cognitive behavioural therapy
- seriously click on this http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/psychosis.htm
hopefully this was helpful, here are the resources i used as well as just useful sites to visit
