all during this chapter my stats teacher kept saying “if you ever get confused, just look at this diagram and i promise it will explain everything, this chapter IS this diagram, all your answers lie within”
99.9% of all creatures that have ever lived are dead. That’s a lot of bones buried beneath the surface world and most of them will never be accurately identified. Several dinosaurs have only ever existed due to improper skeleton assimilation, fitting the disparate joints together like a prehistoric jigsaw puzzle without the convenient cover photo to know what you’re making. Of course, it’s possible we actually got it right by accident. So it’s not a stretch to assume that the horrific amalgamations of the Forgotten Boneyard could, in fact, exist somewhere deep within the bedrock, crunching beneath our feet. Some of these pieces are available for purchase at etsy.
"i don't follow the 5 rule sorry: ray holt, snakes, boy meets world, remus lupin (pothead remus lupin), poetry, the fosters and jude and Not Liking Brandon, pokemon, the green brothers and nerdfighteria and enthusiasm and bravery, curtecrew, selfies and reblogging people's selfies and complimenting them on specific things in the tags, the mountains goats, hufflepuff house"
"judging a teacher on their students’ test scores makes as much sense as judging a farmer on his crop without accounting for drought, freezes, or disease."
well yeah fair point, very true, but i feel like you’re ignoring the fact that judging a student based on those same scores is pretty much the same thing.
idk i feel like sometimes teachers blame us a lot for reflecting badly on them without realizing that we have lives and stuff too. like i made a 30 on my last math test, that makes my math teacher look like shit, but it wasn’t because i’m out to make him fail; it was because i had a panic attack the night before and couldn’t sleep.
i feel really guilty when i fail things b/c i know it affects my teachers’ lives — and not just on an emotional level; in georgia there’s new legislation that’s causing teachers’ careers to be dramatically affected by test scores — but like?? i’m doing the best i can with what i’ve got.
A boomslang’s diet includes chameleons and other arboreal lizards, frogs, and occasionally small mammals, birds, and eggs from nesting birds, all of which they swallow whole. During cool weather, they will hibernate for moderate periods, often curling up inside the enclosed nests of birds such as weavers.
