Moose at the Kostroma Moose Farm in Russia.
The farm began in 1963 as an attempt to domesticate moose for milk production. The moose on the farm have free range of 36000 hectares of protected Russian wilderness for part of the year, but freely return to the farm for food and to give birth to their young. The moose living there are extremely tame and are happy to be handled and milked, and even enjoy a spot of petting from the farm workers.

The Brain Scoop: Where My Ladies At?
This was an incredibly difficult video for me to write and record. I haven’t been this uncomfortable or nervous about an episode since we decided to launch the Wolf series. I did it because I know my fellow female creators are with me: these comments are not easy to ignore, and they do have a negative impact on our desire to make videos and blaze trails.
Things can be said about women being more sensitive than men, or that men deal with these comments too, or that we should just accept that they’re going to happen.. but if I do, I’ll quit. If I accept that this is just part of the deal, this is what it is and always has been, it’s a requirement of my job to toughen up and barrel through, I won’t be able to continue. The remarks are enough to make me want to throw my hands up and retreat to a tiny cabin in the middle of nowhere. If the compromise is that I need to become desensitized, I would probably just do something else instead.
Let’s not create that kind of environment for our peers. Let’s be supportive, encouraging. Focus on the content, not the presenter. Ignoring the fact that these comments are uncomfortable is dismissive and counter-productive: let’s have less tolerance for both those comments, and the apathetic attitude attached to how they affect our community.
And, please: check out the women in the video description for more fantastic channels to subscribe to.
This is an atypical episode of The Brain Scoop, but I am so glad she made it.
I know I left out a lot of plot and world setting stuff and other characters but tumblr only lets you upload 10 slides and this was mainly a joke/something to do.
(Also some things I left out because spoilers.)
(And to see if I could spell Sette’s last name from memory)

Frummagem! It’s a real word from old thieves’ cant, presumably derived from the notoriously lethal habits of a certain Sharteshanian gang :3 “Didja see the tongue lollin’ out Mikhel’s blue gob? For sure and for certain he were frummagem’d.”
Unsounded is one of my favorite things! Read Unsounded! Read it now!
It took me forever to scan & edit all the images but thank goodness, I’m finally done with it (because wanted to post the scans before I might kick the bucket due to a heart attack within the next few days)! ಥ‿ಥ
This is the entire set of cards from the Tezuka Osamu World Star System Playing Cards set, which is extremely rare and rather hard to obtain these days.
~Stop Reposting Art, Zac Gorman Edition~
These are all comics created by the totally awesome Zac Gorman, as you can clearly see in his signature on these. You can find these Zelda comics as well as other game-related art at his gaming tumblr Magical Game Time, and if you want some super rad merchadise you can find his store here.
Thankfully his signature is intact on these so for anyone interested, he should be easy to find. BUT, that also leaves zero excuse for the person that decided to repost these comics and leave them unsourced. As of right now, this post has over 60k notes on it, meaning Zac has lost out on tens of thousands of potential supporters. Posting art without a source could literally take countless potential customers/clients away from artists. ARTISTS HAVE BILLS TO PAY LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, and need as much exposure as they can get to do so!
In this case and in many cases, Zac has not one but TWO tumblrs that these comics could have been reblogged from, but instead someone chose to repost them and rob Zac of the attention he deserves. It may not seem like a big deal, and you might think “it’s the internet so deal with it,” but every person has agency over their own actions and they can CHOOSE not to repost art. So yeah, don’t be a jerk just to get notes.
I’ve been seeing this A LOT lately (including this photoset a few times in the past few days) and really people, if you see some nice art (or any other media) without a source, for crying out loud, think twice about reblogging it. You can reverse image search via google; it’s not that hard. If you don’t want to do that much, then don’t reblog. Come on.
