I have very strong feelings about this show, and feel kinda sad that an entire generation has missed out on it. THUS I made this really crap-ass fake powerpoint to spread the word about Darkwing. WATCH THIS CARTOON IT IS FANTASTIC.

Tiny addition: THERE ARE COMICS, TOO! From 2010 to 2011, the series had been revived in comic form, thanks to Boom Studios obtaining the license. They basically pick up where the show left off, and are just as great as ever. If you’re wary about collecting individual issues, worry not: they’ve collected them into four graphic novels, each covering a single story arc.

So what’re you waiting for? LET’S GET DANGEROUS!

WATCH THIS SHOW AND READ THE COMICS I cannot stress to you all how wonderful it is. It is campy hilarious superhero action at its best. Because it IS a superhero show while also very consciously being a SEND-UP of superhero tropes and just. Also DW and Gosalyn’s relationship is really just superb I will never be over how perfect they are together. Also PS the comics’ huge main focus is on just how much of a jackass Darkwing truly is and him learning to not be as much of an egotistical jerk who always pushes people away. It’s all just beautiful stuff.

Jurassic Jaws: How Ancient Crocodyliforms Flourished During the Time of the Dinosaurs

While most modern crocodiles live in and feed on mammals and fish, their ancient relatives were extremely diverse – with some built for running around like dogs on land and others adapting to life in the , imitating the feeding behaviour of today’s .

Research published today [11 Sept.] in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B shows, for the first time, how the jaws of ancient crocodiles evolved to enable these animals to survive in vastly different environments, all whilst living alongside the dinosaurs 235 to .

The study was conducted by Tom Stubbs and Dr Emily Rayfield from the University of Bristol, together with Dr Stephanie Pierce from The Royal Veterinary College and Dr Phil Anderson from Duke University.

Tom Stubbs, who led the research at the University of Bristol, said: “The ancestors of today’s crocodiles have a fascinating history that is relatively unknown compared to their dinosaur counterparts. They were very different creatures to the ones we are familiar with today, much more diverse and, as this research shows, their ability to adapt was quite remarkable.

"Their evolution and anatomical variation during the Mesozoic Era was exceptional. They evolved lifestyles and feeding ecologies unlike anything seen today."…

I did a paper on this for one of my MA classes and it was the best grade on a paper I got the whole year.

So, I was driving down the street in Cleveland where the Hydra/Fury chase scene in Cap 2 was shot.

And then I saw this sign.

hannes lochner (previously featured) spent two years and traveled over 100,000 km in the kalahari to document the nocturnal world of its animals. he slept in sweltering day heat, was stung by countless scorpions, and spent up to twenty hours a day in the field, which included sub zero night time winter temperatures.

hannes loves big cats, but notes that “due to the extreme rise and fall in temperature, you only get an hour at night and in the early morning to get pictures of the cats actually doing something. otherwise it is too hot.”

he adds, “the kalahari is very harsh and dry. there are extreme arid regions where only the fittest survive. i saw so many lions dying and cubs being left behind because food was so scarce. it is a difficult environment.”

"But I can do 40-inch box jumps now. Action-hero physical stuff. Jumping that high feels really good. You see a giant hillside, and you think, I wanna get up that. You see a building, you think, I could climb that. When you get in shape, the world around you becomes things you wanna jump on and climb up.”-Chris Pratt for Esquire Magazine, September  2014 Issue
