Things that make me happy

With the world ending and all, I thought I would share some nice, wholesome Nathan Pyle's comics. They are cute and make me happy. ^_^

A new thing has made me happy. I have recently discovered that these kind of bats exist. They are called Honduran White Bats. They are teeny, tiny bats with cute, yellow snouts. They nest in leaves and look like little marshmellows. I want one. ^_^

Those are super cute.

Someone please tell the Chinese not to eat them.

Bats are my favorite! They're not as tiny or fluffy, but they look like lil' foxes.

I'll contribute this, just to flesh out the full range of what bats might be:

Night Stalker

Not to worry; this doesn't exist. It's from a book of imaginary future evolution, illustrating what bats might become in a few hundred million years.

Sleep tight!

(With apologies for derailing an otherwise perfectly awesome thread.)

But why did they get *big*?

Is that the same book with the freaky scythe-armed swan monsters?

"Scythe-arm swan monster" isn't ringing a bell. The book is "After Man" by Dougal Dixon.

... Is it weird that I still think they're kind of cute?

Not at all. The ones in the photo you posted are cute.

No, I mean I think your ones are cute. :p

Flooer

In that case, check these out. From the same book, these are "flooers", or bats that evolved to resemble flowers.

OMG, that's so weird. I literally just saw this yesterday! (And have decided that I am getting a pet weasel. Never seen anywhere selling them, but I will make it happen.) ^_^

Actually it says in the video description that they shouldn't be kept as pets, this one just happens to be a rescue.

You can get a ferret though which are just as cute and way more domesticated. They'll use a litter box without any training and can just eat catfood.

But weasels are tinier! ... I know! I'll travel weasel infested territory looking for one that needs rescuing. ^_^

Later:

"It's a shih tzu!" a deranged local woman exclaimed, upon being apprehended at the zoo clutching what was clearly just a stolen weasel. Authorities are still at a loss as to her motivations.

I do find it fun that the people who whine about cultural appropriation are always bored, argumentative white people and pretty much never people from the culture they're supposed to be appropriating. I remember when Ghost in a Shell came out. Americans practically had a seizure because they cast a white person as Major, whereas everyone in Japan was like, "Yeah, they cast her really well. Scarlett Johansson looks just like her."

I think white people like to "protect" other nationalities because it makes them feel superior.  As if these cultures which have likely survived any number of various assaults ending in bloodshed are somehow too fragile to handle another country adopting their holidays.  No, they simply must need a big, strong white person to defend them.

Sometimes, well actually a lot of the times "ethnic" people will say things that are extremely problematic too, and that's always fun because it really throws the protective white people into a state of confusion! Do you educate these poor savages from your state of moral and intellectual superiority or do you just look the other way and let them do things in their ignorant brownness that your white society knows is just really immoral and wrong? Moral dilemma: An everything-hating Chinese man and a Hitler-loving Berber Muslim are going around using a bunch of slurs and creating a forum environment that you, a white Canadian, are really not cool with! What do?? Answer: dock ten points from a random passing Mexican and lecture him a little, that's probably safe.

Reminds me how there was a thing in the news about how everyone was pissing themselves about Matt Damon being the protagonist in The Great Wall and named after a folk hero was Whitewashing... Even though the conceit of the story was literally written by chinese people and it was about a european and his buddies going to China and finding out it was full of creepy aliens with eyeball shoulders.

Fun movie, though. Also *very* Chinese Propaganda.

That's a really young kid, probably too young to have chosen that costume himself.  That means it was probably his dad's idea.  Coolest dad ever.

It seems like guys that look like this tend to be cool like that.  Maybe it has to do with the fact that they really have nothing to prove to anyone regarding their masculinity.

It's all fun and games until a burglar tries to LEAVE without at least 45 minutes of tummy rubs.

Things that make me happy

You think that's bad, try giving a cat a belly rub.  Dogs have only one set of teeth, whereas cats have about five.  Putting your hand on a cat's tummy is kinda like putting your hand in a bear trap.

Back on the subject of bats: The bumblebee bat in Thailand is the smallest mammal in the world. Thailand also has the painted bat, sometimes called the butterfly bat:
