I’m having a huge realization of how great Tumblr is tonight. There are so many cool, awesome people with knowledge and wisdom, and I can interact with them so easily, and all of the ones I’ve talked to have been so nice. It makes me very happy, and excited, because I’m starting realize a whole range of opportunities this can bring to me. Wow.
I have a mythical creature in my house and he made a tumblr recently, you should go follow him and his tumbler cups.
therapsids are a really cool and pretty significant group of animals that are very often overlooked
they were the dominant land animals from the mid-Permian all the way until the dawn of the dinosaurs
they include our direct ancestors; the therapsid group gave rise to the first mammals about 200 million years ago
they represent the link between reptiles and mammals, they’re right in the middle, and that’s remarkably interesting to me
