I believe blogging is either for:

a.)people who just want to attention from random anonymous people with nothing better to do with the internet so that they'll feel appreciated
(consisting of 0.1% of the tumblr population)

or

b.) the random anonymous people with nothing better to do with the internet
(consisting of 99.9% of the tumblr population including me)

As a part of the latter, I shall help you waste time with all the cool/ silly/ funny/ interesting/ informative things I happen to reblog. Procrastinate and enjoy.

A beautiful specimen of Mottled Prominent (Macrurocampa marthesia) hiding out on the side of my garage after yesterday’s rainstorm. You can really see the green coloration we typically see up here in the Northeastern US.

Purrkour is a great Unreal Engine 4 powered cat parkour game where you frolic, pounce, and claw your way through an expensive pad, in pursuit of every cat’s dream – getting someplace really high.

Much like Catlateral Damage, there’s a great amount of fun to be had from smashing up your owners apartment, with paintings, vases, bottles and glasses all ready to feel your feline wrath.  In Purrkour, You’re also given objectives, such as claiming cardboard boxes for your own or collecting kitty coins in hidden or hard to reach areas.  To manage these objectives you you’ll need to use your purrkour skills, including a comical looking jump, wall running and climbing up walls with your claws.

Purrkour was created for the rpgmakerweb Indie Game Contest and is still early in development, with plans to further develop the parkour systems and add new content and levels.  It’s already thoroughly enjoyable though - It’s such good fun being a bad cat.

Chambered nautilus (Nautilus pompilius)

The chambered nautilus, is the best-known species of nautilus. The shell, when cut away, reveals a lining of lustrous nacre and displays a nearly perfect equiangular spiral, although it is not a golden spiral. The shell exhibits countershading, being light on the bottom and dark on top. This is to help avoid predators, because when seen from above, it blends in with the darkness of the sea, and when seen from below, it blends in with the light coming from above. The species has about 90 tentacles with no suckers. The oldest fossils of the species are known from Early Pleistocene sediments deposited off the coast of Luzon in the Philippines. Its diet consists of small crustaceans, carrion and small fish. photo credits: montereybayaquairum, Ingrid Taylaraqua
