Literally thought that was just a beard until I read the title

Must be its new bed until it grows up.

I fully expect a follow up post in the coming months.

I stayed the fuck out of this sub in the early days cos I thought /sub/eyebleach was going to be full of posts that were as awful as pouring bleach on your eyes

Ha ha yes

HA

D'oh!

Dad with ALS gets up from his wheelchair and congratulates his son at his Air Force graduation.

I told myself I wouldn’t cry... and I failed

more info: Dad is an Army veteran himself. He requires a breathing machine and power wheelchair due to his ALS.

Quote from source: "I decided when it was time to tap my son out that I wanted to get out of my power wheelchair and take a few steps and walk to my son. I was overwhelmed with pride for my country, for my son."

Edit: More photos from son's graduation https://imgur.com/a/jjV4oNd

Ah, yes. The case of me browsing reddit at my desk before work and I'm already crying. It's gonna be one of THOSE days.

How sweet is this?

“Why you don’t smell like cat? I fix”

very

Very sweet

Sup?

Sup?

"You're big."

I love inchworms and little caterpillars like this! Always try to keep them out of harm's way when I come across them.

Ello.

Diver gives a Zebra Shark some scritches

Do you think fish like pets? I mean certain fish?

I love how there are so many comments here acting like this guy is just an underwater janitor and doesn’t know what he’s doing. Most SCUBA jobs at aquariums require at least a Bachelor’s in Marine Biology or a related field plus years of experience diving and the accompanying certifications (I think I’ve read that most require a level of “Rescue Diver”). Their responsibilities can range from cleaning the windows to performing spot checks on the health of the animals (which it kind of looks like what this guy is doing...looks like he’s feeling the abdomen at one point). These guys do what they do because they LOVE their job. I really doubt he’s going to do anything to jeopardize the health of any of the animals.

I’ve come to the conclusion no matter who or what you are you can’t pass up a good belly rub

As a former aquarium diver, I can say this is true.  I had to train for a full year before entering the shark tank.  It was quite the privilege.

A lot of the aquariums don't even pay divers to work there.  It's volunteer in a lot of places...there's a waiting list sometimes up to 2 years for a spot.

I had to have my open water, advanced open water certs, CPR/First Aid and had to take a series of navigational tests to make sure I could handle my equipment efficiently (to not knock over displays, etc) in a pool setting before even starting training.

We cleaned all the glass of algae, replanted flora, did basic tank maintenance, spot checked animals for health, hand-fed all the fish (with the exception of the sharks), retrieved animals for health checks for the biologists and we prepared ALL of the food for the animals every day.  And, of course we'd pose for pictures with kids from inside the tank and that was a lot of fun.  Also, in some tanks we'd wear a full-face communicator mask and could talk to the guests from inside the tank and tell them what we were doing and who we were feeding and what, etc....they LOVED it and so did I!

It was a dream job for sure.

Here I am diving in the Amazon River tank!

There is something so satisfying about this pic

For me it was the cat being the same color as the sandstone

Can we just take some time to appreciate the great camera work here. The cat as the focous with the statue as a fitting background. Too bad there's people there.

And being so happy looking!!! Sun is shining, he's colour coordinated, it's a beautiful day.

Oh hello!

First, I would open that door constantly! Second, I love how their forhead markings are completely different yet similar.

Da heck it’s a gif with sound

Maybe they are all white kittens and the owners marked them to keep them straight. On the forehead would prevent them from licking the spot.

Props to the two apex predators who attempted the leap
