Saving dolphins is expected, but this guy saves a shark!!!
Thank you sir, for showing us there’s still some hope for humanity!

I had a look at the original video and news articles about this. Apparently the man was fishing and accidentally hooked the great white shark, but cut it loose; then he realized the poor thing was beached. What you don’t see here is what’s possibly the most awesome part: he realized the shark still had his hook in its mouth and went to the effort of removing the hook.

From the mouth of a live, distressed great white shark.

Which he then got back into the water and set free.

His name’s Shane Cox, and he’s a pretty damn awesome Australian for that.

People who have monsters recognize each other. They know each other without even saying a word.

That’s the only way you become “the one” — it’s because somebody is willing to pretend you are.
Why-Oh-Why

Q: Why is “Oh my God” used as slang by so many people that claim not to believe in God?

A: For the same reason people say “fuck that” when the light turns red while they have no real intention of putting their penis inside the traffic light.

I want to spend a day in the mind of Neil Gaiman, honestly. 

You really don’t. It’s weird in here. Also I think that thing over there in the corner of my mind is moving.

Don’t look. Maybe it won’t see us.

None sing as purely as those in deepest Hell; it is their singing that we take for the singing of angels.

Urban spaces have spirits, and cities have souls. Some are dangerous, menacing, but also seductive; others are marked by beauty and excess; others again by their dreariness or spookiness. These are contagious qualities that are said to seep into the character of the people living in such cities. […] Some urban spirits are global in reach, others mainly local or regional. They are reproduced in everyday stereotypes and mythologies. None of these are of course true in any sociological sense but the proliferating fantasmic and mythical qualities of cities and urban spaces are effective realities that shape the behaviour, cosmologies and desires of people in cities, or of those who visit them, imagine them, or describe them in narrative or imagery.
