Tear-drinking Butterflies

In the Amazon, it’s not uncommon to see groups of colorful butterflies fluttering around turtles basking along the river. This is because they drink the turtles’ tears—an invaluable source of salt for the herbivorous butterflies.


Do turtles cry a lot!!?????!?!?

"Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace."

MYTHOLOGY MEME / (1/1) Mythology

NORSE MYTHOLOGY is the body of mythology of the North Germanic people stemming from Norse paganism and continuing after the Christianization of Scandinavia and into the Scandinavian folklore of the modern period. The northernmost extension of Germanic mythology, Norse mythology consists of tales of various deities, beings, and heroes derived from numerous sources from both before and after the pagan period, including medieval manuscripts, archaeological representations, and folk tradition.

"Capitalism is created through racism, exclusion and genocide. If Europe hadn’t conquered, colonized, Africa and the Americas, it wouldn’t have had the means of payment and the raw materials to make the Industrial Revolution. If they hadn’t perpetrated the African genocide, they wouldn’t have developed the insurance industry, and other things which promoted the first accumulation of capital in the UK. In consequence [capitalism] is the son of genocide, without any doubt."
