These are the things you will learn about death:
You will learn that you can stay up all night and the baby bird you found at the base of a tree will still die. It won’t matter how many worms you dig out of the ground and mash into a paste—feeding it every hour with the medicine syringe your mother used to feed you that pink bubblegum penicillin with. It won’t matter if you make it a nest—a discarded piece of fake fur your mother gives you wrapped around a heating pad set on low.
You will still wake up in the morning, plastic cup of dead worms dangling from your hand, and learn for the first time that loving something isn’t enough to keep it alive.
You will learn that death comes for everything. It comes for the leaves in the fall and it comes for your best friend when you are only sixteen and it comes for your Grandmother when you are still too young to lose her. You will learn that death will take people you never met, but whose loss will still gut you. You will learn that there are no exceptions.
You will learn that death seems to never wait and then it waits forever when you are convinced it is just around the corner.
You will learn that the only thing you can do in this life is live so hard it hurts—kiss people in dark parking lots and spend an afternoon driving to nowhere sometimes and make things with your hands that have purpose and make some things that don’t and learn to enjoy the silence of your own company and the silence of someone else’s.
Most of all, you will learn that part of death is letting life be wonderful, even when it is horrible and seeing how everything can be both beautiful and painful, if you just close your eyes, let go, and live.
My Adopted Cat Is The Best Climbing Partner Ever
Most pet cats will become timid or defensive when outdoors, but not Millie – after being adopted by her mountain-climbing owner Craig Armstrong, Millie has become a feline hiking and mountain-climbing legend.
“She literally loves to climb things… if there’s high-ground she’ll seek it out,” Armstrong said in an interview with Bored Panda. He had nothing but praise for the tenacious little athlete: “Generally she does best on slabby routes where she can scramble from ledge to ledge. She’s an incredible athlete but steep juggy routes just aren’t her thing. When bouldering, though, she’s done some pretty amazing gaps and dynos.”
“I go on a lot of weekend climbing adventures. It never seemed odd to me, just seemed like something I’d do with my pet, take her places,” explained Armstrong. Ever since Millie climbed up onto his shoulder at the Furburbia adoption center in Utah, Armstrong knew they’d make a good team.
There are, of course, pros and cons to taking your cat hiking – “We camp in my truck; She peed in there one night, but she caught a mouse in there one night, too.” Armstrong hopes that they can become a team in other aspects of his life as well; “I’m still waiting for the day we come across a group of pretty ladies and they love Millie and invite us to their campfire that night.“
He also had plenty of advice for owners who might consider hiking with their own cats. “Get them used to their name and to you as a safe place. In talus fields or thick woods she’ll get distracted and climb trees or explore tiny caves and under boulders and stop following sometimes. It’s taken a lot of practice and many trips to get Millie to the point where she follows me down a trail past areas like thickets that would have distracted her otherwise.”

In the spirit of summer and most of you college attending followers surviving finals (hopefully), these are a series of questions that can bring about varied responses. From serious debates to amusing sarcastic rants; do you often wonder or ask people what they would do in a doomsday scenario?

ah, look at the predator being predated. humans are pathetic
Not so tough without your complex tools, are you?

Are you trying to say that you’d stand there if a big fucker like that charged you? Would that elk detect your veganism and simply pass you on by?
Give it a try, and have someone record it.
