Pain is not exclusive to humans.
this genuinely makes my heart hurt
I really dislike when people say animals aren’t smart, or that they can’t feel emotions.
Sorry to rain on your parade but… While true, these are not emotions of sadness. These are emotions of dominance.
This isn’t a bird mourning over a dead bird.
This is a male bird raping the corpse of its rival to show dominance so that the chick birds will come mate with him and other males don’t step in his territory looking for mates.
Birds are fucking brutal man.
At first I thought this was a joke, but now that I see you’re serious I’m actually embarrassed for you. And disappointed, but let’s get to that later.
The pictures here belong to photographer Wilson Hsu, and if you knew the first thing about birds (which you obviously don’t), you’d be able to tell that the deceased bird is a female due to its more desaturated plumage and shorter tail feathers. Here, let’s post the coloured version to confirm, because tumblr has some sort of bizarre fetish for making everything black and white.
There goes your first point.
If you knew the second thing about birds, you’d be able to identify this species as a Barn swallow. And while you are correct in your assumption that the males are fairly territorial, they also mate for life and are fiercely dedicated to their female counterpart. Barn swallows, along with most small birds, are actually physically incapable of any sort of penetrative sex, because they have a cloaca instead of a penis. Mating is done by passing a packet of sperm from the male’s cloaca into the female’s, not by inserting a penis into a vagina. Necrophilia in this species is completely unheard of, and would be a complete waste.
So if we take all this information I’ve just told you, and couple it up with the fact that Wilson Hsu’s entire collection of these photos is uploaded online, which vividly depicts a male Barn Swallow trying to rouse his mate which has just died, we can infer you know literally nothing about the species as a whole, didn’t even bother to look up where the pictures were from, and are deliberately spreading misinformation for the sake of looking COOL N’ EDGY on tumblr dot com.
Normally I wouldn’t get so heated about this sort of thing, but that’s just stupid as hell.
This is part of the reason I absolutely love tumblr.
In my head this totally probes my headcannon. If River is half-Time Lord and had the ability to regenerate, wouldn’t Donna have the ability to regenerate as well? Then it finally hit me.
Amy IS Donna
Donna regenerated into a seven year old ginger girl (this is also my theory of why the Doctor is still not ginger… Donna/Amy stole it). Donna’s regeneration power protected her brain by resetting it, so her brain wouldn’t explode if she heard of the Doctor. This explains how Amy didn’t know about the Daleks or anything else. However, protecting her mind used up all her regeneration power. This is also the reason Amy’s mind is so powerful. For example, she was able to imagine the Doctor back to life.
Now if Donna’s brain is wiped, how did she get to be Amy? Well when she was found with absolutely no idea of who she was and a Scottish accent, the authorities told her her name was Amelia Pond and that her parents died, and that she now lived with her aunt, who in real life was he adoptive mother. This and her mind is why her “parents” look so different from her. She imagined them to look that way, based off what she thought her parents should look like and her “aunt.”
Yes, BUT NOW THEY’RE BOTH GONE
IT WAS GOOD AND THEN YOU DID THAT
I ACCEPT THIS
If you tell me you’re going to sleep and I see you 10 minutes later on Tumblr, I understand completely.

JFC SO ACCURATE AND WE’RE COMING UP ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF MERLIN FUCK
Also, if you want, send me asks on what caused it, I’m not asking for a story ( u may write one if you wish, but for those who don’t want to just put what caused it, whether its deadlines, homework, people in school, teachers, projects, tests, etc.) It’d mean alot
*edit*: Also, if you feel like you’re a disappointment/failure to your parents, or if you parents pressure you with school.
