Monday morning is brought to you by …
This morning I laid to rest a very important person in my life. This young man had a very special soul and was truly one of a kind. Everyone that I know who had the chance to meet him was instantly captured by his big cheesy smile and his live life to the fullest personality. In the five years that I got to know him he taught me so much about life and friendship. He became a lot more than just a resident to me and my coworkers he became like a family member, a child when we would teach him things and when he fell ill and we cared for him, or a brother when we would goof off and how we knew how to push each others buttons. His condition caused him to loose the ability to do most stuff on his own but he didn’t care he kept that big grin on everyday. I could not have asked for a better person to be brought into my life and I’m glad I got help him in the last years of his. He will be missed by a lot of people but we know he is done with the health issues and he is happy to be with his mother again. We love you a lotta EN.
Let me tell you some things about this bitch. This is a mantis shrimp. This thing is 6 - 12 inches and as you can see, it’s all colorful and shit. Mantis shrimp have 16 cones which means it has 13 more cones than humans. So these things can see things we don’t even know exist. They could see so many different colors and possibly could have different senses like when some animals can see heat. These bitches are pretty bad ass because their claws move so fast the water literally boils around it. They’re also so strong that aquariums aren’t usually allowed to have them because if they hit the glass it will shatter and it will eat all the other fish/snails. When the mantis shrimp strikes it’s food you can see light and steam being made from how fast it’s claws can move. The claws move as fast as a bullet being shot out of a 22 caliber rifle even though it’s underwater.
This is the only thing I’ve learned all year in biology and I thought it was cool.
Thanks for the pen, Presbyterians! I used it to draw a sloth in a suit. Since god forgot to somehow.
