I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going
'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'
Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.
and I think Tony is just realizing that he literally died and was scared back to life by the man to his left
and steve, being the senior citizen, is simply nodding off
Also, the dude behind the counter just nonchalantly making shawarma for the goddamn Avengers like they come in every day.

OH MY GOD WHAT
New favorite bug! This is a wasp mantidfly. It uses mimicry to look like a wasp, but in reality is actually harmless to humans. It’s most like a praying mantis in behavior despite the obvious anatomical differences.
basically all the cutest bugs smashed together
It’s also important to talk about the life cycle of these guys
They’re related to lacewings and antlions, but their larvae are brood parasites of spiders, usually wolf spiders.
In its early stages, the mantidfly larva is highly mobile and hunts down a spider to latch onto. It needs a female host, but it may settle for a male and transfer later, when the host mates.
It hangs out and sucks on spider body fluids until its host lays eggs, at which point it crawls right into the spider’s egg case as it’s being formed, and molts into an entirely different, legless larva with a new set of mouthparts.
The mantidfly grub changes from spider-sucking parasite to egg-eater, cracking open every spider egg and slurping out its contents while the mother spider continues to carefully guard the case.
And then a mantis-headed fake wasp comes out!
The cutie-patootie in the middle picture is in a YouTube video, too! Go watch him munch on a fly!
back to use Painter, still my Favorite tools.
Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
