I don’t generally reblog things. But Miyazaki is an exception, and this is so so so so beautiful. He gets it.

this one goes out to you, amanda

on some occasions, a sloth will be climbing and it will reach up and grab its own arm. this usually results in the sloth falling to its death because it mistook itself for a branch. 

fun fact: sloths actually can fuck you up. my boss is fond of telling the story of how the only two animals that have ever put him in the hospital were a 500 pound alligator and a sloth.

Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.

How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!

13 out of 36…

it’s not like there aren’t multiple things any of those expressions could be, including several that aren’t even listed as options. like the 3rd pic here, i’m pretty sure “joking” is not the correct answer and yet that guy could totally be joking, if he had a more deadpan style. 

"Your score on this test was 30 out of 36.

The average result for adult population is 26 out of 36.”

Yay!

31 out of 36. interesting how that completely does not bear out in my actual social interactions xD

Oh, I couldn’t parse facial expressions this fast in real life - I enjoyed the chance to study them at length and refer to mental notes on probable meanings. Now, if people came with pause buttons and multiple choice answers….

"Tarun Tahiliani founded his design studio in 1990. His distinctive signature has since evolved as a fusion of textile detail, refined luxury, and meticulous tailoring. The Tarun Tahiliani Design Studio creates couture, diffusion, prêt-a-porte and accessory lines, which are Indian in their sensibility, yet international in their appeal. The rich heritage of the subcontinent is reinvented as contemporary high fashion through the genius of Indian craftsmanship and the finest textiles; along with Italian pattern cutting and construction and new technologies such as digital textile printing. His unique combination of historical opulence and contemporary chic also transcend to couture.” [source]
