The mind flayer, also called the illithid, is an evil and sadistic being, humanoid in appearance, but with a four-tentacled octopus-like head. These beings are feared throughout the Underdark for their telepathic abilities and usually are not without two or more slaves, mentally bound, to each individual mind flayer. Although they cooperate to achieve a goal, they will back away at the first sign that it is not something that will be self-profitable.

They are capable of speaking Undercommon, but prefer telepathic communication and will attempt to mentally dominate any non-slave, non-illithid they meet. 

They feed on the brains of sentient creatures and are thus feared. Their natural psionic abilities also make them respected in the eyes of the drow, beholders, duergar, and the other dominant races of the Underdark.

More Illithids from the slew of sketchbook scans I did today. I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of drawing them.

June 2014: The hottest June ever recorded.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have announced that according to the latest global temperature readings, June 14’ is a record breaker: the hottest June ever recorded. Not only has it won first place, it is the 38th consecutive June with a global temperature above the 20th century average.
So what figures are we dealing with here? NOAA focuses on three main temperature readings: Land temperature, Ocean temperature and an amalgamation of the two, Land & Ocean temperature. The results for June are as follows:

•The global land surface temperature was 0.95°C (1.71°F) above the 20th century average of 13.3°C (55.9°F), the seventh highest for June on record.
•For the ocean, the June global sea surface temperature was 0.64°C (1.15°F) above the 20th century average of 16.4°C (61.5°F), the highest for June on record and the highest departure from average for any month.
•The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for June 2014 was the highest on record for the month, at 0.72°C (1.30°F) above the 20th century average of 15.5°C (59.9°F).
The ocean temperature was a particularly astonishing record; marking the first time that the monthly global ocean temperature anomaly was higher than 0.60°C (1.08°F). Notably, large parts of the western equatorial and north-eastern Pacific Ocean and nearly all of the Indian Ocean were record warm or much warmer than average for the month and this is with neither El Niño nor La Niña conditions present during June 2014.
Aside from being the hottest June on record, it was also the 352nd consecutive month with a global temperature above the 20th century average. The trend to a warmer world is now incontestable. The last month with below-average temperatures was February 1985.
29 years ago and counting….

spiders.

they’re like tiny 8-legged cats
how can anyone hate them

Spiders are huge derps, pass it on.

My dad used to work as a mechanic in Arizona and he said that wild tarantulas would just wander into the shop and try and cuddle with the mechanics under the trucks. Spiders really dig car exhaust smell for some reason and they would be like “ah yes this human smells nice let me sit on your face while you’re working or perhaps climb into your pocket and see what you have” and the mechanics would keep shooing the spiders out but the spiders would follow them back like “No why would you leave me human friend??”

THAT IS SO CUTE

reblogging for the story, eeee

spiders are the derpiest things though like have you ever played with a spider and a laser pointer, because I thought my lizards chasing the laser was adorable but leT ME TELL U, BLACK WIDOWS CHASING LASERS IS FRICKEN ADORABLE

So I hate spiders but this makes them seem a bit cuter lol

Yeah no I still aint fucking with no spiders

NOPE. NO FUCKING THANKS YOU CAN KEEP ALL THE SPIDERS

"Innuendo" is created by five students at the Utrecht School of Arts in the Netherlands.

Created over a span of five months, it’s a creative exercise in sensuality and fertility without any human imagery using nature. 

Watch.
