Story of Haruka and Feebas
Haruka met Feebas when he was young. He finally evolved when Haru is Grade 12, but he was too big to stay at home. In the end, Haru decided to let him live in the sea. Milotic was very sad that he can’t stay with Haru and take a bath with him life before. So Haru stopped by sea everyday to see him.

I know this blog is usually more lighthearted than this, but my local animal shelter, the MSPCA, recently took in 427 birds from a SINGLE home in the area, and they all need help finding new homes. The MSPCA is now housing a total of 501 birds of all kinds (finches, pigeons, quail, chickens, ducks, geese, parrots, parakeets, and more.)
If any of your followers are looking to adopt a bird in Eastern Massachusetts, I hope they will consider adopting from or donating to the MSPCA at Nevin’s Farm to help cover the cost of care for these many birds.Hello everyone, just boosting the signal on this to help out the birbs….Pass it on!!
SOMEBODY LOVE THESE BIRDS.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what the ideal work environment would look like for me. I’d want to work closely with teammates who become best friends, and we’d collaborate on fun projects and be creative on our own schedule. Some sense of direction from a boss, but no direct hovering supervision and no pressure to stick with a company style. Just us being ourselves and designing our own means to an end with freedom for trial and error. Plus opportunities to travel and wear whatever we want to work.
And then I realized: Team Rocket. The dream job I’ve been thinking of is Team Rocket.
ridgebacks love to dig
my sister owns one baby ridgie and we decided he accompanies the bigger dragons out digging and tries REALLY HARD and an imp always tells him he’s doing a good job
then he spends the next few minutes squealing and squirming around
these aren’t even my dragons what am i doing
This is adorable.
always reblog the adorable
A loaf of bread made in the first century AD, which was discovered at Pompeii, preserved for centuries in the volcanic ashes of Mount Vesuvius. The markings visible on the top are made from a Roman bread stamp, which bakeries were required to use in order to mark the source of the loaves, and to prevent fraud. (via Ridiculously Interesting)
(sigh) I’ve seen these before, but this one’s particularly beautiful.
I feel like I’m supposed to be marveling over the fact that this is a loaf of bread that’s been preserved for thousands of years, and don’t get me wrong, that’s hella cool. But honestly, I’m mostly struck by the unexpected news that “bread fraud” was apparently once a serious concern.
Bread Fraud was a huge thing, Bread was provided to the Roman people by the government - bakers were given grain to make the free bread, but some of them stole the government grain to use in other baked goods and would add various substitutes, like sawdust or even worse things, to the bread instead. So if people complained that their free bread was not proper bread, the stamp told them exactly whose bakery they ought to burn down.
Bread stamps continued to be used at least until the Medieval period in Europe. Any commercially sold bread had to be stamped with an official seal to identify the baker to show that it complied with all rules and regulations about size, price, and quality. This way, rotten or undersized loaves could be traced back to the baker. Bakers could be pilloried, sent down the streets in a hurdle cart with the offending loaf tied around their neck, fined, or forbidden to engage in baking commercially ever again in that city. There are records of a baker in London being sent on a hurdle cart because he used an iron rod to increase the weight of his loaves, and another who wrapped rotten dough with fresh who was pilloried. Any baker hurdled three times had to move to a new city if they wanted to continue baking.
If you have made bread, you are probably familiar with a molding board. It’s a flat board used to shape the bread. Clever fraudsters came up with a molding board that had a little hole drilled into it that wasn’t easily noticed. A customer would buy his dough by weight, and then the baker would force some of that dough through the hole, so they could sell and underweight loaf and use the stolen dough to bake new loafs to sell. Molding boards ended up being banned in London after nine different bakers were caught doing this. There were also instances of grain sellers withholding grain to create an artificial scarcity drive up the price of that, and things like bread.
Bread, being one of the main things that literally everyone ate in many parts of the world, ended up with a plethora of rules and regulations. Bakers were probably no more likely to commit fraud than anyone else, but there were so many of them, that we ended up with lots and lots of rules and records of people being shifty.
