Disney Thoughts:

Lessons the Disney Princesses teach us that don’t involve men, love, or beauty.

I made this post because I am tired of seeing people bash the princesses because they only serve as love interests and think that they show women that a woman’s purpose is to be submissive to men, or that beauty is the only thing that matters in a woman.

All of the Princesses had personalities and lives without their Princes, and on their own, they are able to teach girls several other important lessons about life in general. These are all characters, and whether or not you believe that because they are love interests that that reduces their character, they still have some sort of trait that is valuable to have for any woman, in love or not. 

And before anyone can argue Ariel’s character or lesson, I want to point out that her dream was to be a human, and it was her dream long before she laid eyes on Eric. Eric was just an another incentive for her to become human. While the lesson she teaches might be the only one based on rash and poor decisions, it’s important to point out she learns her own lesson. She see the consequences of her actions, and apologizes and fights to make things right. That is one of her valuable traits.

Let’s Get Down to Business

This is a wildlife bridge in the Netherlands. Wildlife bridges are designed to help animals cross busy highways in safety. They don’t just protect wildlife from being hit by cars - they also connect fragmented habitats and help populations intermingle and breed. The Netherlands is leading the way in designing these bridges. The country is home to more than 600 similar crossings.

This mugging victim had a six inch knife plunged deep into her back — and she didn’t even feel it. The shocking picture shows the blade sticking out just above Julia Popova’s shoulders and blood pouring from the wound. Incredibly the 22-year-old, who was knifed by a mugger on her way home from work, failed to notice the appalling injury and managed to calmly stroll to safety. The office worker had grappled with her attacker when he snatched her handbag as she walked to her parents’ house in the Russian capital Moscow. But she was so shocked by the ordeal she didn’t know that the thug had buried a kitchen knife in her neck just fractions of an inch from her spinal cord.

 When she got home her horrified parents rushed her to hospital where surgeons managed to remove the blade without damaging Julia’s spine. One medic said: “Shock had kicked in and her body prevented her from feeling any pain. She simply walked home without feeling the knife in her back.”

palau’s jellyfish lake was once connected to the pacific ocean, but when the sea level dropped its population of jellyfish were left to thrive in the isolation of its algae rich waters. no longer needing to defend themselves from predators, the jellyfish lost their sting, allowing snorkelers to now swim with them. the golden jellyfish will spend the day migrating from one end of the lake to the other, a 400 meter swim, and then heading back.
