So a new species of snake (Pseudocerastes urarachnoides) was recently discovered in southern Iran.
Its common name is the spider-tailed horned viper because its tail is literally a fucking spider. This salty motherfucker has a spider (well, a VERY convincing spider-shaped lure) for a tail. I’d try to get on its level but I don’t know if that’s even possible.
Spider snake. Snake spider. Nature isn’t even in the neighborhood of fucking around.
For millennia, cultures around the world have celebrated the origin myth of of a giant animal—such as a turtle or elephant—supporting the world on its back. Beijing-based artist Ruilin Wang reinterprets that image in DREAMS-ark, an evocative series of large-scale sculptures that depict whales carrying entire landscapes on their backs.

Paul McCartney’s “Apple Jacket”
McCartney’s “Apple jacket” is in no doubt recognisable to the world as Paul’s casual jacket from 1967 straight through the Beatles career end. The jacket made it’s debut on August 24, 1967 in London (TL), during the bands meeting with the Maharishi. It is seen continuously in literally dozens of images straight through to 1969.
Those appearances include the rehearsals for and the final cut of the film Magical Mystery Tour, as well as the hugely important May 11, 1968 trip to New York with John to announce the formation of Apple, Ltd (2ndR). (Hence, the name/color.)
