Guys, let me tell you about orcas.
Orca whales are mean motherfuckers. They cruise the oceans with only two things in mind: one, having sex, and two, eating every poor fuck they find out there that’s smaller than them. They are such badass motherfuckers that even great white motherfucking sharks don’t dare fuck with them, which in my books, places them above the sperm whale as Biggest Badass of the Ocean. And why don’t sharks bother them, you may wonder? Because orcas fucking learned that if you flip a shark over they go into a sort of coma, so now they do it intentionally so they can eat the motherfucking sharks. Not only that, but orcas have also learned how to hunt sperm whales and motherfucking sea birds.
The orca whale lives in a matriarchal pod. Every pod has unique hunting methods and whatnot, which is passed down from parent to offspring- these scary fuckers have formed civilizations. And what do they do for fun, apart from hopping around on the water’s surface and grinning like crazy mofos? They hunt for fun, going so far as to tip over ice floes and beach themselves just for the thrill of killing.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Orca whales are too damn cute and smiley looking to be heartless predators of the sea. Well, let me counter-argue with this photo:

THOSE ARE NOT THE TEETH OF A CREATURE THAT WANTS TO BE YOUR FRIEND.


Reblogging for excellent commentary.

Why has nobody mentioned what’s happening in the original gif?
This is how orcas hunt - or, it’s one of the ways they do. They have a ton of tricks and techniques they use to fuck up everything below them on the food chain, and that gif portrays my personal favorite.
Orcas will literally BEACH THEMSELVES to grab unsuspecting seals (or whatever else happens to be splashing around in the surf) and snarf them down like hot dogs. Yeah, that’s right. This is a 6-ton apex predator, crashing right out of the fucking water to snatch their prey right off the beach. Any other animal that size would get stuck there and die, but do you see that fucker? He fucking wriggles right back into the surf. An orca can get all the way up onto dry land and still manage to wiggle their way back into the water to fuck up more shit on another day. There is literally no other sea-dwelling creature of comparative size with that ability - most sea animals lack the muscular strength to move without enough water supporting their weight.
Orcas have also been known to eat moose. Yeah, that’s right. Fucking MOOSE.
You don’t fuck with orcas.


!!!

That technique of hunting was first observed in dolphins.  When dolphins chase after fish, the fish will beach themselves in hopes of escaping the dolphins.  Dolphins then try to stun the fish by slapping the water near them with their tails, and when that doesn’t work they “hydroplane” on the water and beach themselves to catch the fish.  Only a few dolphins - found off the coast of Australia - have mastered this kind of trick without hurting themselves and it is considered fairly new.

Back at the camp, Haru, ‘Bella, and Astrid were trying to coax Jack down from the trees. The drider seemed to be spooked by Rin’s earlier hostility. It took Hiccup attempting to drag himself towards the tree for Jack to finally come down. 

"Why do you think Rin would attack you like that, Jack?" Astrid asked when everyone settled down, "I mean, he was nervous around your kids, but he looked ready to kill you!” 

Hiccup bit his lip and looked anxiously up at Jack. He had a pretty good idea of what might’ve happened. Jack wasn’t always a good guy, after all. Hiccup squeezed his mate’s arm reassuringly before asking, 

"Jack… is Rin one of the people who wandered into your territory before?”

The others looked attentive, not quite understanding why that was so important. Isabella fidgeted nervously with her hands; she didn’t like it when her friends fought. Astrid’s eyes narrowed thoughtfully; she was pretty sure what Hiccup meant, but didn’t want to jump to conclusions. Haru’s hands clenched in his lap. He also had a pretty good idea of what was going on. Jojo was the one who said what no one else wanted to. 

"It would make sense for Rin to attack you if you raped him first." He pointed out coolly, "It’s not like you had a reputation for being gentle with your victims.” 

It took a while but eventually Jack made his way down from the tree with assurance that no one would try to kill him.  He was still pretty shaken when he got down and would not let go of Hiccup who he had locked in a bear hug.

When the questions came up Jack paled even more than usual.  Even the comforting squeeze on his arm by his mate did little to calm him down.  But in the end it was Jojo’s statement that really hit the drider hard, making him cringe.  Hiccup turned and glared at Jojo but the mouse morph only kept his gaze on Jack just like the others.  Soon Jack gave a shaky sigh and pulled back from Hiccup and looked up, although he refused to meet any of the gazes of anyone.

"Yes," Jack said, clenching his hands tightly.  "I’ve encountered him before in my territory…"

3 weeks ago, before Jack met Hiccup…

Jack had received word from his children that a human - possibly a newbie champion but it was hard to tell - had wandered into his territory, so Jack decided to investigate.  When he saw the human - Rin - he looked worse for ware than the drider thought: he had bags under his eyes like he had barely slept in days, his clothes were ripped and covered in dirt, no armor and no visible weapon on him.  Jack also thought he heard his stomach grumble from lack of food.  Jack looked down at his arms, a few non-poisonous fruits in his arms, and thought he might as well give the newcomer a few and point him towards Owca where they could feed and shelter him.

However when he got close Rin only freaked out.  Jack offered him food that the human knocked away from him (“It could be poisoned!” he yelled at him) and proceeded to either try and run away or attack the persistent drider (“I’m only trying to help you,” Jack would say).  Jack figured that Rin must have encountered another drider - one of the corrupted ones and got spooked - so he was very distrusting of him, but Jack could not leave him alone in the forest with horny imps and tentacle monsters wandering around.

Jack and his children caught up to Rin who had managed to get a hold of a chest containing the clawed gauntlets and tried to fight back.  Jack was quickly getting irritated and was tempted to leave the human to his own demise, but one of his children got too curious and got too close for comfort to Rin.  He lashed out and kicked the 2 week old drider hard, almost killing him.  That instantly set off Jack’s parent instincts and he attacked Rin.  He was not hard to take down and soon Rin was trapped under Jack’s drider body, looking up at him in wet eyes filled with fear.

"You will pay for that…" Jack growled and…

Jack trailed off from there, looking down at the ground out of guilt and shame.  Hiccup had a shocked look on his face, yet he understood to some extent why he resorted to violence.  Everyone else had either looks of disgust, shock, fear or a combination of them all for the drider who sat before them.  The children all sensed their daddy’s distress and cuddled up with him, cooing softly.

"I understand why you would want to hurt Rin if what you’re saying is true," Astrid started levelly, "But there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed. Even in Mareth…" 

Sometimes Hiccup really hated how truthful Astrid could be. She always had a strong moral compass and always had a clear understanding of why people did what they did. It wasn’t always nice to hear what she thought. Hiccup could feel Jack tensing with his entire body. He was aware that he’d done horrible things, and he was trying to make amends for them, but sometimes the road to redemption looked so long. Astrid wasn’t exactly helping, but she was right. There were some lines that shouldn’t ever be crossed. 

"We should look for Rin." Hiccup suggested quietly, "Well, you should look for Rin. I’d only slow you down.” He amended with a half-smile.

He could talk to Jack in private when everyone was gone. The drider definitely needed someone to be there for him now. 

Even though Jack kept his gaze on the ground he could still feel the looks of everyone on him and it felt like rocks being piled on top of him while he was underwater with how heavy and suffocating it was.  The drider was even sure that Jojo was shaking his head in a judging manner and that Isabella thought even less of him than before.  Soon Jack let out a shuddering breath, but he was far from relieved.

Then the drider stood up, his children watching him curiously.  ”I will go look for him.  He can beat me up, kick me, do what he wants if it will make him feel better, even though I know it won’t be enough…”

The entire time Haru watched Jack silently before he stood up next to him.  ”I will go with you,” he said, gaining everyone’s attention.  ”It’s best if it is only the two of us.”  When everyone looked at him in confusion including Jack, Haru looked down in shame.  ”It’s my fault that he is here in the first place.  I need to take some form of responsibility for what happened.  And while it was not as bad as what you did -” Again, Jack flinched when Haru looked up at him, making the drider want to look away but he didn’t “- I hurt Rin once before, so I know how you feel…”

"I’m not going to do the ice bucket challenge, I’m very sorry. It’s not going to make a difference if I do it or not. Everyone knows about the ice bucket challenge by this point. So instead I wanted to do what, it seems like a lot of people who do the ice bucket challenge don’t do, which is: talk about ALS, explain what ALS is."

he’s also going to donate $1,000

how can people even hate him? he’s amazing.

If you do not love this man I am judging you.

Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!

Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics. 

A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.

With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!

Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.

So here are some buzz words~

Natural colors!
Art Nouveau!
Handcrafted wares!
Tailors and dressmakers!
Streetcars!
Airships!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!

Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction!  Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

(((Character art by me; click the cityscape pieces to see artist names)))

i am so into this wow

sign me the fuck up

I want a solarpunk future. *_*

Wow.
