the great bear rainforest in british columbia is one of the largest coastal temperate rain forests in the world, with twenty five thousand square miles of mist shrouded fjords and densely forested islands that are home to black bears with white fur.
neither albino nor polar bear, these rare black bears (there are fewer than five hundred) are known as kermode bears, or what the gitga’at first nation call mooksgm’ol, the spirit bear — a word no first nations person spoke of to european fur traders lest they be discovered and hunted. to this day, it remains taboo to hunt a spirit bear, or to mention them to outsiders.
the white fur in these bears is triggered by a recessive mutation of the same gene associated with red hair and fair skin in humans. though it remains unclear as to how the trait arose (or disappeared), it is especially pronounced on certain islands, and is known to confer a day time fishing advantage over the black furred bears (consider the first photo).

SKETCH OF THE DAY
Re-Imagined Doug characters as if they attended college. #bluffingtonstateuniversity
that sketch of patti mayonnaise is everything i’ve ever wanted to be
this is perfect.
This post just made me cry this is very important I need everyone to watch this , a very important topic.
(WHAT ARE YOU MIXED WITH ?!) as if being black isn’t good enough
this is why you should wash your vegetables/fruits when you get home
I constantly feel like I have the same conversations about the same things but with different people. It’s an endless cycle of nonsense that I honestly could care less about. Or maybe I’m just an asshole.
One time my mom did this and it was one of the best days of my life.
this is exactly what ive been trying to say.
I saw this on Facebook, though it was worth a share.
I came back from a hard walk down to the grass market to find that you had put cups of water all around my room, and writen on my door “revenge kenny” with tooth paste.
This was a mild inconvenience.
So upon finding this we at 18/3 started plotting on how to return the favour.
So i put it to you Chris.
I WANT TO PLAY A GAME.
As you can see from the following photo I have taken your door handle and the 4 screws to hold it ont the door.
I have also taken all the cups of water from my room and placed them outside your room, following this I took the water which we used to clean the tooth paste off my door and filled some of the cups with it.
In several of these cups are hidden the 4 screws.
My game to you is you must drink EVERY cup of water/toothpaste to then find the 4 screws. You may be thinking you can just empty them out and find the screws that way rather than drinking them. However unless you actually drink them ALL, I will not give you the clue as to where your door handle is hidden.
The choice is your Chris…
Stay locked out.
or drink it all.
HOLY SHIT IS THIS GUY ACTUALLY SATAN???
I got to “Dad” and had to scroll down and reblog for a break because I laughed so hard I nearly threw up twice.
