“Women are more likely to be attracted to personality and men are more likely to be attracted to physical appearance.”
Woah maybe that’s because we teach women to see men as people and we teach men to see women as objects.
Ding ding ding ding ding.
Apparently people who use a lot of swear words have been proven to be more honest and trustworthy so I guess I’m one of the most honest/trustworthy people ever
I could not live with myself if I didn’t reblog this

Hundreds of stingrays found dead on Mexican beach Eerie scene in Veracruz remains mysterious; some say that fishermen discarded the strange-looking fish, but authorities are investigating
It was an eerie scene Tuesday on a beach in the Mexican state of Veracruz, as roughly 300 large stingray carcasses littered the shore.
The cause remains mysterious, and Mexican authorities are investigating. But some speculate that Chachalacas fishermen, who possibly captured the winged rays in nets, dumped them after failing to get a worthwhile price.
However, Chachalacas fisherman Jaime Vazquez told the BBC that fishermen would not do such a thing, and that in his 30 years as a fisherman he had never seen colleagues discard fish on the beach. He said they would set free any unwanted catch.
What’s also mysterious is how so many stingrays could be captured at once if, in fact, they were.
But local food vendor Adriana Loredo, in an Associated Press report, said she witnessed fishermen dumping the rays.
Which is odd because stingray flesh is edible. Loredo said chopped stingray wings are commonly served as snacks in Veracruz restaurants. Veracruz’s Environment Minister, Victor Alvarado Martinez, has asked federal authorities for help investigating the incident.
Stingrays are found worldwide in temperate seas, mostly in shallow coastal waters. They can measure 6-plus feet and can weigh more than 700 pounds.
They generally hide in the sand and ambush prey, and move across the sea floor with wing-like fins. The poisonous barbs on their tails are used mostly for self-defense.
Their status is listed as threatened, according to National Geographic.
It seemed as if all of them guessed their fate, but not one of them uttered a single sound.
July 17, 1918: The Romanovs are killed.
After a turbulent and much-hated twenty-three year-long reign, Tsar Nicholas II abdicated the throne and passed the title of tsar to his brother, who acknowledged the authority of the Provisional Government. This too was overthrown in the 1917 October Revolution by Bolsheviks who installed their own government, bringing to an end the Russia of old and the 300-year-old Romanov dynasty. Meanwhile, the former tsar and his family - including his wife Alexandra, four daughters Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia, and son Alexei - were relocated to Tobolsk, and then to Yekaterinburg, located in the Ural Mountains.
The remnants of the imperial family were held in the Ipatiev House - “the House of Special Purpose” - as both civil war and world war raged around them. By the summer of 1918, White Army forces were on the move and, to the dismay of the Bolsheviks, approaching Yekaterinburg, Though they were unaware of the family’s imprisonment there, losing the Romanovs to anti-Bolshevik forces who could potentially use the deposed tsar as a rallying point posed too great a risk, and so the decision to execute them was quickly made and transmitted by telegraph, to be carried out by Yakov Yurovsky and a force of ten soldiers and local Bolsheviks.
There is no universally agreed upon account of the exact manner of their execution, but, according to the chief executioner’s version of the events, the family was awakened at 2:00 AM and brought to the basement of the Ipatiev House, supposedly for their own safety. Yurovsky read aloud to the family their execution orders, to their confusion, and then commenced the shooting. Those who did not die in the initial onslaught of bullets were stabbed to death with bayonets or shot in the head. Those killed alongside the Romanovs included a court physician, a maid, footman, and cook. DNA analysis has since confirmed the deaths of all the Romanovs, but rumors surrounding the possible survival of Grand Duchess Anastasia, the youngest Romanov daughter, persisted into the late 20th century.
