In larger scale societies, we are accustomed to diversity of belief, we even applaud ourselves for our tolerance, not recognizing that a society not bound together by a single powerful belief is not a society at all, but a political association of individuals held together only by the presence of law and force, the very existence of which is a violence.

I’m a woman in her 30s. I don’t have kids, I don’t have a husband; it’s on purpose. It’s all apart of my master plan: I care about my future and I don’t give shit about my legacy.

When I first moved to San Francisco in 2004 I took pictures constantly. I had graduated the year before with a degree in photojournalism and then had quickly decided I didn’t want to pursue that field. Upon moving to San Francisco I got a boring office job downtown to pay rent and spent the rest of the time exploring and making friends. I carried a Canon PowerShot Elph everywhere. The camera had fewer megapixels than most of today’s phones, and these pictures were saved at a fairly small resolution size to accommodate slower loading speeds on the internet. I still love a lot of these photos and wanted to revisit them. thecoldestwinterwas.tumblr.com

I see people get confused about legs (especially about birds), thinking ankles are knees or strange things like that. So I did a quick and super simplified comparative anatomy guide for a few kinds of vertebrates! I left out reptiles because… meh, maybe next time. People get less confused about them
Next I’ll do one post all about birds and how they have the same bits as us because vertebrates are basically all just weird looking versions of the same thing
Fun fact about me: my first job in uni was drawing pictures for a textbook! It was super fun but didn’t pay much.
