After a long-fought battle in Australia, a python bested a crocodile and swallowed the reptile whole over a span of several hours in Queensland, Australia.
The snake reportedly fought the croc for five hours in Lake Moondarra. Winning the fight, the python constricted its prey to death. The estimated 10-foot snake then dragged the 3-foot croc ashore and proceeded to swallow it whole in front of a group of onlookers.
National Geographic identified the snake as an olive python and the croc as a Johnson’s crocodile, both of which are native to Australia. After its hefty meal, the python should be full for at least a month.
But like, could you imagine shitting out a whole fuckin crocodile?
Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay
I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:
Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.
I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.
The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’
Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules.
Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them.
I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts.
The violence we teach our sons in teaching them to Be Men is the same that keeps us up at night worrying about our daughters.
yes. yes. yes. yes. yes.

Livin with my bitches! #LIVING
But you walked out on your drug addicted husband so, are you really “winning” Khloe?
What the fuck? Yes she’s winning; she walked out on her drug addicted husband who turned away her support and continued to abuse his relationship with her by continuing his irresponsible behavior and entertaining his drug habit instead of accepting the endless help offered to him.
Khloe is not responsible for his habits, nor is she for his behaviors, nor the fact that he cheated on her. She has endless love for that man but, at some point or another, a person has to look out for themselves.
Being with Lamar was hurting her more than it was doing anything else—especially knowing that her being there for him wasn’t changing his decisions about how to carry on his life. Her presence didn’t really seem to make him a better person when he decided to hook up with his awful friends, cheat on her, and dabble in drugs.
So, yes, this bitch is winning because she took her broken ass heart and demolished trust and was like, “Fuck this, I love you Lamar, but I deserve better. I love you and I will always be there for you, but I will not be your wife, I will not be your romantic partner.”
Khloe is strength and power and resilience so fucking check yourself before you go implying blame on her for his actions.
