"One of the most interesting things about Elizabeth Turner was her Kiss of Death. Throughout the trilogy, all of the men she locked lips with has died - including Sao Feng in At World’s End, and (if you want to be petty about it) her father, Weatherby Swann. Usually they would die moments after kissing her for the first time. This excludes Will Turner who has kissed her several times before and beat the odds every time. However, even he succumbed to her kiss and died as well minutes after the two were hastily married by Barbossa.
This is most likely a just coincidence and not something that was intentional, but years later it’s still fun to point out to friends and watch a dawn of realization hit their face when they realize that Pirate Queen Elizabeth may have also been the Grim Reaper.”
This Kayaker Encountered a Whale That Waved Back, But That’s Not Even the Best Part of This Video
So, you’re out kayaking, minding your own business, having a great time. And then suddenly, out of the water come not one, but two whales!
That’s exactly what happened to these kayakers in this video. But the awesomeness didn’t stop there. Seeing a couple of whales in the water is a rare enough sight. But one whale decided to go further. In the video you can see the whale sticking his fins in the air, as if he is waving hello. Slowly he slides underneath the kayak and then to everyone’s amazement the whale lifts the kayak out of the water. Holding it on his back for just a moment, he then lets the kayak back down in the water to continue on its way.
This was a wild whale! Was the whale showing off? Was it a greeting? One thing is for sure, thatwhale gave the kayakers that day a memory they will cherish forever. But its a moment that might never happen again if we do not preserve our oceans. Let’s all help care for our oceans and our planet so that we can all have an encounter like this one day. :)

THIS CROW FUCKING UNDERSTANDS WATER DISPLACEMENT. WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO BE TOLD EVERY YEAR BY A TEACHER HOW WATER DISPLACEMENT WORKS. DO THEY THINK I’M LESS INTELLIGENT THAN A FUCKING CROW? FUCKING DONE.
Crows discovered the principle of displacement in the third century BC, when the philosopher Awkimedes, upon noticing the level of his bird bath rose in proportion with the amount of his body that was submerged, reportedly exclaimed “EURECAW!” and flew through the streets of Athens shouting his discovery.
Tumblr will believe anything smfh. The law that’s being described is Archimedes’ Principle and Archimedes of Syracuse(the guy who discovered this) said Eureka, not Eurecaw.
