“They also have the ability to construct new words referring to novel objects or animals in their environment - prior to this study, only humans were recognized to have this ability.”
humans barely even have that ability
Oh my god that’s terrifying
**is fascinated** That’s some really interesting research and I hope it adds to further laying the groundwork for similar studies on a variety of other animals (I’d especially like to see such for meerkats, maybe done by the Kalahari Meerkat Project, or dwarf mongooses), as also more studies into the language(s) of prairie dog species.
Yes, it just goes to show that we can’t be so quick to judge other animals when we don’t have all the information! :)
Have a picture of Bucky and Clint sparring or fighting or whatever. Because why not.
Bare-chested because of reasons.

As grahamkahler said, Snow Law is in effect. Portland Oregon
Okay. But let’s talk about Thor for a second. Thor does not get enough love and (Loki forgive me) he is honestly one of the best fucking characters Marvel has. And it’s shown so simply and so beautifully right here. He is so fucking chill about everything. Obviously, he doesn’t live in space, he lives in Asgard. But he knows everyone thinks he’s kinda like an alien, and he just goes along with it because why not? These humans are funny in their lack of understanding, but it’s an endearing kind of funny. Just like in the first movie, where Darcy tells him to smile so she can take a picture of him and he has no fucking clue what she’s doing or what a phone is and it could kill him for all he knows but he just fucking smiles and keeps eating his delicious pancakes because he’s just so chill like that. And if you look at his face in the first gif, it’s very serious and concentrated but the moment Darcy starts talking to him he loosens up and is like “Muscles? Ah, yes I suppose I am quite muscular. Oh, she’s inquiring about Asgard. But she called it space. She seems confused as to my origins, but it’s not of import. I like space, that’s a good name. I shall call it space too.”
And that little head nod he does back to her in the last gif. I’m dead. Deceased. Murdered from Thor cuteness.
He’s just.. ugh, Thor doesn’t get enough appreciation. There are so many little things he does that go ignored but no more. His complete adorableness will be appreciated.
So Jeremy Renner is sporting MCU Clint Barton hair and a lot of this fandom is excited about that because Avengers 2 filming begins next month, but. Is anyone here actually ready and capable of seeing on-set pics of him in the uniform holding the bow because holy fuck, y’all. It’s literally about to happen.
