How is this the first time i'm seeing something this amazing looking on Reddit?

There was a save point outside, right? There's going to be a boss fight in here.

Hippo crushing Watermelon is 🔥

Hippo crushing Watermelon is 🔥

Hippos are beasts.

They eat watermelons like I eat gushers.

I've found a value to convert:

10.0ft is equal to 3.05m or 16.01 bananas

That trainer is braver than me... I’d be chucking watermelons from 10 feet away

White blood cell doing its job chasing down and eating bacteria is 🔥

There was a post I'd seen a while back that in essence said: Even if you don't think anyone's looking out for you, your body is looking out for you.

Though I suppose that's a little less valid if you've got an autoimmune disease but The sentiment can be nice

Holy fuck this is amazing.

Few questions:

1) The bacteria appeared to be "running" from the white blood cell. By what mechanism does the bacteria realize it's being chased?

2) It appeared as if another bacteria was hanging around at first. Does that white blood cell remember that there was another bacteria? Or are there so many WBCs that another one will come along and grab it?

3) How long does it take the WBC to kill/digest/whatever the bacteria? Can it take out more than one bacteria at a time?

No wonder I stay sick forever when it takes that long to kill one bacteria.

Perfectly preserved blue whale heart is 🔥 af

No.  Externally, veins and arteries look virtually identical in real hearts.  It has undergone a ridiculous amount of preparation and synthetic preservation (plastination), but the most unrealistic thing is that it has no fat.

Hearts and superior vessels in particular are shrouded in protective fat.  It has been removed here by an acetone bath. I'd guess that someone spent hours, first with a chainsaw and/or machete, then with a big knife, to clear almost all the fat first.

It used to take me 20-30 minutes to strip away most of the fat from the vessels of a sheep heart when teaching my zoology students heart anatomy.  Fat is also very slippery, and vessels dry out like jerky quite quickly.

Edit: As surgeon /u/Aplaidlad points out, living and recently dead tissues and blood vessels are visibly different in color.  I am referring to exsanguinated/preserved specimens like this heart.  In cross-section, you can also see that arteries have proportionally thicker walls than veins.

Okay at the risk of sounding stupid, the colors of the veins and artieries in lower left, thats rhe natural color? Obviously never seen a whale heart.

Those pipes look as clean as a whistle.

No Big Macs and French fries there.

maybe if you're a 5 year old, there's some strong forced perspective going on here

This golden tiger is 🔥

This golden tiger is 🔥

He looks like he could be a cinnamon frosted flakes tiger.

Not too sure. I do know however that the coloration is a result of captive breeding, inbreeding and can simply not occur in the wild.

Looks like he just found the address of Siegfried and Roy and is about to head out on a mission.

Golden tigers are a result of inbreeding and are often times born mentally handicapped or physically handicapped. Here's more info:

Shouldn’t it be hibernating?

Bears don’t always hibernate in the winter. They are slower in the winter but if there is a lot of food available they will continue on with their lives in a lot of cases, the cold isn’t as much of a big deal to them considering the natural coat they wear and thick layers of fat they have to keep them warm. Also they don’t exactly go into hibernation, they go into a state called torpor, the main difference is being that their body temperature won’t drop in this state and that they are able to wake up quickly if disturbed, a hibernating animal wouldn’t be able to wake up even if you touched it.

Blood boogers. Yuck.

Valid point.
