Tiger gets a bad baby tooth removed
When a tiger’s first response to having a tooth yanked is not a roar, snarl or swipe with claws, but a test nibble to check that its mouth works as well as it suddenly feels, it speaks volumes about how much the bad tooth* must have hurt.
*You can see, briefly, that it’s black and nasty on the inner side. Yuck.
I’m just awed by the amount of trust in this gif. That tiger totally trusts that the human is going to help with that scary metal object on an already painful area and the human totally trusts that the tiger is just test nibbling and not chomping down on his arm. I flinch when a house cat comes at me too fast and these two don’t even hesitate to trust each other.
i want a tiger to give me a test nibble too :[
It’s called a lilac chaser. You’ve seen it before. It’s an optical illusion with a small black cross in the middle, encircled by twelve blurry lilac-colored dots. A green dot animates over the lilacs as though counting the time on a futuristic clock. Stare at the cross long enough and the lilacs disappear, one by one. But the moment you get distracted and look away, the lilacs come back.
The black cross is the work you do. The lilacs are all the things ancillary to your work. They’re the small choices you’ve made around your black cross: the time you wake up, the tools you use, what you have for breakfast, when you check your email, and so on. They’re the various aspects of a daily routine—things that, when fixed in place, disappear with the passage of time.
Deep thoughts and optical illusions for your Monday.
SO MUCH LOVE

Mens Wear Dogs
Before I strut out the door each morn, I often plan my look by how well a dog can rock it (depending on the breed of dog, of course. I just can’t relate to an Afghan Hound), so the single-serving tumblr mensweardog is perfect for me. Each post describes a complete outfit, in detail, down to the shades, shoes, and accessories, that combined make one desirable hound. You just wish you dressed as well as men’s wears best friend.
Calvin and Hobbes IRL
The power of imagination is sometimes too great to confined by three perfect squares and when it comes to Calvin and Hobbes, even sweeping majestic landscapes are barely enough. Redditor nite4awk allowed Bill Watterson’s creations to finally explore the earthly realm in scenes nearly as gorgeous as the artists’ own masterpieces.
ohgod i love this photoset
