The kakapo is a critically endangered species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of the super-family Strigopoidea endemic to New Zealand. It has finely blotched yellow-green plumage, a distinct facial disc of sensory, vibrissa-like feathers, a large grey beak, short legs, large feet, and wings and a tail of relatively short length.

The total known population is only 126 living individuals, as reported by the Kakapo Recovery programme, most of which have been given names.Because of Polynesian and European colonisation and the introduction of predators such as cats, rats, ferrets, and stoats, the kakapo was almost wiped out. Conservation efforts began in the 1890s, but they were not very successful until the implementation of the Kakapo Recovery plan in the 1980s. (x)

There are ways you can help save the kakapo population through donations, adoptions, voluteering, becoming a supporter, or buying merchadise.

THIS IS AN ACTUAL PHOTO OF THE SURFACE OF MARS. PLEASE NEVER FORGET THIS.

"Has juvenile humor landed on Mars? The Internet is buzzing today (April 24) over a phallic design etched into the Red Planet’s surface nine years ago by NASA’s Spirit rover, with some folks suggesting the robot’s drivers drew it on purpose out of boredom, mischievousness or some combination of the two.

But the truth is much more prosaic. The phallic shape naturally resulted when the six-wheeled Spirit, which was declared dead in 2010, made a turn, as NBC News’ Alan Boyle points out. NASA’s currently active Mars rovers — Spirit’s twin Opportunity and the much larger Curiosity — have also made similar tracks on the Red Planet.

The photo of Spirit’s tracks, which was taken by the rover itself, exploded into a bona fide meme after a forum on the popular social-news site Reddit discovered it on Tuesday (April 23). Penis graffiti on Mars? In retrospect, it’s surprising it took so long.” (X)

i had a crush on this guy and i decided to pull a Pavlov on him by offering him whenever i saw him  this brand of candy he seemed to really like and after a while whenever he saw me he got excited for a second then you could see his expression shift to wondering the why the hell was he so happy to see me and i swear it was the evilest thing but also the most hilarious i made a guy like me by conditioning him into associating me to a candy he liked

Ocean Atlas. Huge Underwater Sculpture in Nassua, Bahamas 

Installed at the beginning of October, Ocean Atlas is the latest underwater sculpture by Jason deCaires Taylor. It depicts a young local Bahamian girl holding up the ceiling of the ocean. During low tide, the water will reflect a mirror image of the sculpture on the underside of the sea’s surface.
