An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.

My friend who worked at Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska had as similar story.  Rare fish were disappearing, they suspected theft, and so set up a camera. An octopus was unlocking the top of its tank, walking across the suspended walkway, unlocking the other tank, eating his fill, re-locking the other tank, then re-locking its own tank.

Pleas, juts want a know where the WALLETS have gone!  I have TICKET TO A DISNER LAND IN it and I want a go space mointam THANK MAAMS

Swans are terrifying beasts.  I think people who haven’t encountered them personally think that they’re just ordinary waterfowl, a prettier version of geese.
They are not.  A territorial male swan is big, strong, mean and terrifying.
…What I’m really saying here is that I once had to fight a swan off with a canoe paddle, and if you’re going “seriously? you were swinging a canoe paddle at wildlife?  you’re a terrible person” you do not understand swans.

"OH MY GOD FROZEN DISNEY ONLY EVER DOES MOVIES ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE THEY’RE SO RACIST I HATE THEM"

Disney only does movies about white people.
It’s disgusting

How they never have

any people of color

from any other cultures

And they totally glorify the white man

And totally marginalize their plights

And overall refuses to give children of color characters to relate to

Those racist bastards.

Oh look a couple of characters of color sprinkled in a sea of whiteness! Some even come with their own racial stereotypes! Good for you Disney! Good for you Disney Fans for finding these! Now us minorities will shut up with our scraps!

Disney may not only do movies with white people, but

^this movie relies on indigenous stereotypes and a bastardization of what a “spirit animal” is. The voice cast is mostly white. Also, the main character spends most of his time as an animal.

^This movie pushes the “strong independent black woman” racist trope and thus not affording Tiana the treatment many of the white princesses are given. The Prince is racially ambiguous which is problematic in the discussion of how black women are treated as love interests onscreen. Also, the main character spends most of her time as an animal.

^ this movie completely misrepresents the agency women had in China, as well as the roles ancestors played in the lives of Chinese families. It is also definitely racist in its depiction of Mongolians (the Hun Army), and there is criticism about white washing some characters (Yao and the Emperor particularly). The main sidekick is constantly making Asian jokes. The Emperor is a “wise asian man on top of the mountain” stereotype tied up in a Confucius bow.

^This film had a voice cast that was 98% white and 100% not South American.

^This film had a voice cast that was 99% white (Lea Salonga sings one song as Jasmine but that’s it). It contained racist lyrics such as “where they cut off your ear/if they don’t like your face/it’s barbaric/but hey, it’s home”. Jasmine is the epitome of an exotic beauty and her lead animator admitted to designing her face based on his white daughter. Jafar is a complete racial caricature of a “sneaky Arab”, complete with darker skin and more angular features than Aladdin and Jasmine. 

^This movie took the life of a real woman, a woman who endured rape and kidnapping, and turned it into a movie where she falls in love with a man who was in reality hugely instrumental through his writings in the colonizing and murder of her people, a man she met when she was a child. Her appearance is incredibly anglicized and she is the epitome of a “noble savage” stereotype. Also the entire film is totally infused with racist stereotypes of indigenous people “being one with nature.”  

^This one not only uses racial slurs throughout the entire film, it also totally relies on racial stereotypes. Esmeralda is sexualized (both through her relationship to the three main men in the film and her dance in the festival scene), and her people are shown as an entire group whose livelihood is achieved through mummery. Also, Quasimodo, having two Roma parents, is completely whitewashed so as to be an acceptable leading man for the film. Also, white white white voice casting (even for the POC characters).

^This is one film that did much better than others, though I have definitely read critiques about the misuse of the word/idea of “ohana”. In addition, Lilo is voiced by a white actress and you gotta admit that the film is just as much, if not more, about Stitch as it is about Lilo. Merchandising of the film has certainly taken that route— you’re much more likely to find something Stitch than Lilo.
I mean nice try I guess but you’re still super wrong. 
Btw yeah they totally did “marginalize the plights” of the characters in many of these films.

I’m going to forever reblog this for every single time I see the “but Disney has POC Characters” argument.'Cause guess again.
