Baby Groot is done! It was a gift for a friend’s sister, but I might make another for myself. It’s too cute!

This was a quick project (roughly 5-6 hours) and I’d recommend it for beginners or advanced beginners. The only hard part was sewing. I thought the head and arms would be difficult, but they were quite easy. I used 12mm eyes instead of the 9mm it recommends and it was made with vanna’s choice yarn in barley.
Make your own baby groot!

"you can’t be just friends with people of the gender you’re attracted to"
myth actually true. i, as a bisexual, can confirm that i have no friends.

pansexuals spend their lives in solitude, with only rocks for company

meanwhile asexuals are friends with everyone. literally every single person on the planet. i do not know how i remember so many names

Goblin shark (Mitsukurina owstoni)

The goblin shark is a rare, poorly understood species of deep-sea shark. Sometimes called a “living fossil”, it is the only extant representative of the family Mitsukurinidae, a lineage some 125 million years old. Various anatomical features of the goblin shark, such as its flabby body and small fins, suggest that it is sluggish in nature. The goblin shark has been caught in all three major oceans, indicating a wide global distribution.

John Oliver: ‘Our Drug Laws Seem a Little Draconian and a Lot Racist’

Clocking in at nearly 18 minutes, the comedian’s recent segment on the broken prison system could be one of his most inspired rants yet. Touching on everything from prison privatization to the inherent racism in the legal system to the fact that America has the “greatest number of prisoners of any country in the world” (an amount equivalent to the size of Slovenia’s entire population), John Oliver doesn’t hesitate to talk about “fact[s] that need to be spoken.”

This time, the “Last Week Tonight” host even got the help of America’s favorite Muppets to drive home his incredibly important point.
