Corky II and GrannyCorky II and Granny
Killer whales live longer in the wild than they do in captivity.
This statement rings with power. It is the argument that any anti-captivity activist will bring up. It’s made SeaWorld so uncomfortable that they have lied about killer whale longevity in the past. And it is one of the few arguments that actually suggest…perhaps killer whales just aren’t suited for life in a tank.
One of the greatest examples of this truth is the differences in the captive and wild populations’ outlier. The outlier is precisely how old the species can possibly get. The wild orca’s outlier is a J pod Southern Resident female named Granny, who is over 100 years old. SeaWorld’s outlier is Corky II, an A pod Northern Resident, who is 48 years old. This is a whopping 50+ year difference; Granny is over twice the age of Corky, which obviously points towards the fact that wild orcas simply live longer.
(tutorial) Believable Villain Recipe (tutorial)Lurking in the darkness of every shadow is a devilish villain out to take over the world and wreak havoc. Ugly and spiteful, filled with hate and disdain. The monster that deserves out hate, the one with no heart, no soul. Who never steps into the light.
The Villain we all love to hate...
Except that I always rooted for the villain. I did. Even as a tiny girl in pigtails and pettycoats watching Jungle Book and Peter Pan. Why? Why did I always want to see the bad guy catch a break?
Because I believed, in my heart of hearts that he needed a hug.
Now I know that is an unusual way to start a tutorial, but hey. I have a point. I promise. To create a story that people can truly connect with, you can't create a black and white world. Why? Because nothing in our world is that simple. Even in our children's stories there is a little bit of grey. Was the Big Bad Wolf really evil for wanting to feast on the three little pigs? Or was he desperately hungry? So maybe in Little Red Riding Hood
Speak up, Speak out ( Take back the night)Little things happen in everyday life. Things that present me with the opportunity to witness, explore and analyze humanity. While often these experiences leave me feeling disgusted and down trodden, there are many times I am instead hopeful and inspired.
Today I was reminded of the strength and perseverance of man, or woman as it were. In the last year and a half I have had the chance to attend 5 Take Back the Nights and tonight, a speak out. With a million words and a pen at my disposal I cannot quite find a way to frame the feelings I have about these events.
The first one I went to was overwhelming to say the very least. I had a small idea of what to expect but no real concept of exactly what it would be like or the major impact it would have on my life.
At the first one I felt awkward participating in the march. Instead I took my time carefully inspecting each of the t shirts which were displayed for the clothes line project. I read every word and studied each image ca

In World News
There are some huge spiders in Africa. Yeah, there's one that's the size of a small puppy. The Goliath Bird-Eating spider is really big. And I just read Black Pepper's episode, and this will make it the second episode in the world that has a spider article. Whatever. Anyway, these spiders need to die. In fact, all spiders need to die. Even Venom. He's not out of the question.
In U.S. News
We've got a massive outbreak of Ebola, and it's a problem. Is it a problem here? Well, it might be. There aren't that many people who have Ebola in the United States, but it's spreading a bit rapidly. The U.S. should send this stuff over to Russia, and solve this Putin problem biologica

Why Twilight is Better than HP rebuttalsPart One (http://www.eatliver.com/twilight-vs-harry-potter/)
1. Why should the boxsets even fucking matter, what lots of people are actually looking for is how good the plot, characters, and everything else that makes a decent story.
2. Harry Potter had come before Twilight, so HOW can a book series that CAME AFTER Harry Potter be a rip-off? And finally, the author has admitted that she likes Harry Potter, and took some details.
3. Same here as numbero uno, but just take the boxset thing and replace it with the logo thing.
4. Both series have been accused of promoting evil by many church groups. Finally I think Harry Potter has a better message than Twilight, which could just be plain summed up by namy haters like, "Bella meets Edward and lots of pretty boys, Bella wants to kill herself because Edward broke up with her, Bella gets engaged to Edward, and then she pops out a hybrid baby out of her vag and a battle happens and happily ever after." On the contrary, I cou
INFP and INFJ, Extraverted and Introverted FeelingThe difference between INFP and INFJ is their feeling function.
Fe: The Extraverted Feeling function means that they want to know
what value it means to others in their friendship and how they
can please others.
Fi: The Introverted Feeling function means how the situation suits
to their needs and what it means to them.
The INFP would rather be at peace than be the one giving the orders.
The INFJ would rather be there showing support and giving guidance
when it is needed.
Here is a video about talking about this issue between INFP and INFJ
while talking about the difference between Extraverted and Introverted
One Beautiful Hell of a Book of LifeReel FX Animation Studios' second AND Jorge R. Gutierrez's first animated feature film, "The Book of Life", is the animated movie I've been excited for this fall, because once I saw the first trailer for this, I got hooked. Not only was the animation nothing anybody had ever seen in any animated feature in the past and most likely will ever see in the future very much, but this was (again) the directorial debut in the feature animation field for Gutierrez, whose work I loved when he created the underappreciated "El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera", and has done some character design in the past for Disney. But now that Reel FX and acclaimed producer Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, Hellboy, Blade II) have come to support him in his adventure to the big screen, what does everyone say about this?
Well, really... everything.
It's a great story of epic proportions and one of the most original tales ever! It's an onslaught of cliched writing. Its characters are eterna
