20th-century-man:

The Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco / open to pedestrian traffic only, during its opening in May 1937 (top) and on its 50th anniversary in May 1987 (bottom).

In 1987, the weight of the 300,000 people that crossed the bridge caused it to sag by 5 feet.

this is horrifying

biomedicalephemera:

Twenty-three year old Viennese woman, before and after contracting cholera
One mid-19th century report describes cholera victims who were “one minute warm, palpitating, human organisms - the next a sort of galvanized corpse, with icy breath, stopped pulse and blood congealed - blue, shrivelled up, convulsed”. Cholera causes profuse vomiting and diarrhoea, dehydrating the body so rapidly and severely that the blood thickens and the skin becomes deathlike and blue.

they’re finding out dolphins

talk about other dolphins when they’re not around.

dolphins even dolphins gossip

a lot of things are smarter than me

probably dolphins and definitely octupi

they don’t have brains

they don’t get counterproductive in their remembering

they don’t gossip contemplate “working it out”

they don’t “remembering”  still they

open pickle jars

lobsters like humans

carry their babies to term, nine months but lobsters

are very unlike humans really

they don’t gossip and they can’t open pickle jars and they

can’t ask please for a little bit of privacy at the grocery store please

lobsters unlike humans

don’t have “central nervous system”

imagine feeling your brain throughout your body

what is heartache to a creature like that?
