Little Carlos doodle.  It’s just something he says but I always found his “A scientist is self sufficient” and “A scientist is always fine” to be pretty lonely.

Exams in 2 weeks and struggling to stay motivated but I HAVE to do this.  It’s unbelievable to think that this time next month I’ll be done with my 2nd year of university & be half way through my degree. 
If I had put in a little extra effort from the beginning, maybe I could’ve actually gotten into the programme I originally wanted to do. But everything happens for a reason and I’m happy with what I’m studying now. :)
This is why I get so mad now when some kids are all “oh, blah blah djfh..I don’t need to study/I only need to get [this much] in the final exam to pass overall” like don’t you realise what you could be capable of?? why would you not want to aim higher?
Anyway sorry for rambling but if anyone is even reading this, don’t be like me. Give 120% in everything that you do because nothing worth having comes easy. You can’t just want 100% but only study for 60%. Remember: short term pain for long term gain :)

Due to popular demand, two new galaxy bats are up in my store. One is made of anti-pill fleece and the other of minky. The galaxy fabric is a printed cotton sateen.

You can find them in my Etsy store.

Tooth of a predatory marine snail
The predatory marine snail Conus ermineus lives in a shell between 2-4 inches in length. Like the barrel of a gun, Conus snails possess a battery of venom-loaded, harpoon-like teeth located within their throat with one tooth “loaded” and ready for use. When prey is detected, the snail rapidly fires the tooth and injects a potent cocktail of neurotoxins that paralyzes small fish almost instantly. The snail then retracts the tooth, reeling in the prey before swallowing it whole. Conus snails can fire these venomous harpoons in any direction (even backwards), and some of the loaded toxins can be fatal to humans.

thekhooll said:Roll-It Experimental Housing

Students from University of Karlsruhe, Germany, Christian Zwick and Konstantin Jerabek have designed this unique experimental revolving house called Roll It, based on the concept of “mobile and space-efficient construction”. The design offers flexible housing in a minimum space. The cylindrical house features a very unique interior setting which changes its functions depending on the orientation. The workspace in one position becomes bedroom when rolled 180 degrees and the kitchen becomes bathroom. The center of the structure can be used both for sports activities as well as for lighting control.” [via]
