No you don’t understand how frustrated I am that we always depicted the Apostles as old men, especially when it comes to during-Jesus-alive stuff.

They were probably late teens to early 20s, given the time and the description and some Biblical passages.

They were not ancient old men with long ass beards and wrinkles at the Last Supper.

They were young adult rebels with a cause.

where my punk-rock apostles at

And none of them were WHITE.

I hate seeing gifs and videos of these pet slow lorises going around with people gushing over them.

all five species of slow loris are listed as endangered or vulnerable. these are creatures that should be left in the wild or used for conservation efforts.

slow lorises have a toxic bite. before they’re set out to be pets they have teeth pulled out or removed with nail clippers. since the people in the slow loris pet trade care only about the money and not the animals many die from infections because they just remove them cheap and fast.

they’re transported from Indonesia to other parts of the world in stressful, cramped conditions which can cause anywhere from 30% to 90% of the animals transported to die on the way.

they’re also easily stressed and nocturnal, meaning they’re prone to health issues even if they make it into someone’s home as a pet because how many people do you think get these as pets that also realize that kind of stuff? not many, especially not with those viral videos out there making them seem to be adorable perfect pets.

also, yeah, the slow loris pet trade isn’t exactly legal either.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

Good lord, the fluidity of her movement is mind-bending, jfc

Because strippers invented it.
