The Glasswinged Butterfly. The pretty creature, who is a native of Mexico and South America, does not lack the tissues that make up a full wing, but rather the coloured scales that other butterflies have.

Pluto 

Erryone seems to be flipping their shit about Pluto allegedly being redesignated a planet, but searching the news it appears that this is based purely on a public vote, i.e., it is still the case that the public see Pluto as a planet, but scientifically it remains a dwarf planet.

YES! GO EMILY!!! I cant even count the number of times that i have been told i should have stayed with nursing, and that i wont get by as a teacher and i’ll be lucky if i can even find a job. Fuck that. We can do whatever we want!!

It drives me crazy. I can’t stand people who have no respect for others who want to do anything other than become a doctor or some successful business person who makes more money than anyone ever needs.

And there’s nothing wrong with teaching!  Nursing’s not for everyone and it’s better to figure it out now that when you’ve gone through the schooling and gotten a job.

Pluto becoming a planet again has really taught us that if we complain hard enough about something, we can change things, even on a planetary level
