PERFECT RAINY DAY → Music for sitting inside, for drinking tea in the comfiest sweaters. Music for falling asleep to the sound of raindrops and waking to the smell of wet pavement.

“Back seat drivers don’t bother her any more.”
This is Sarah the cheetah riding front seat with her handler Cathryn Hilker from the Cincinnati Zoo. This cheetah along with several others serve as ambassador cats for public demonstrations at local schools. These big cats ride up front and unrestrained in order to keep them calm and reduce the stress of transit.
Not seen in the picture are the companion dogs that are raised with the cheetahs from birth. The companion dogs help to keep the cheetahs calm in otherwise stressful situations such as a room full of visitors. They also serve as being one of the cutes things ever concocted on this planet.
underthevastblueseas: Underwater Rivers?
A group of amateur cave explorers discovered a river in Mexico with banks, trees and leaves just like an ordinary river, but with an additional metric shit ton of “WTF,” because they were hovering 25 feet over it in scuba gear when they discovered it.
While underwater water doesn’t seem possible, the “river” is actually a briny mix of salt water and hydrogen sulfide. It’s much more dense than regular salt water, so it sinks to the bottom and forms a distinct separation that acts and flows like a river.
Deep sea lakes look like normal lakes, complete with sandy and rocky shores. Scientist call these lakes “cold seeps,” but they’re a hotbed for life, because apparently waterfront real estate is a hot commodity under water, too. The “rocky” shores are actually made up of hundreds of thousands of mussels. Even weirder, the lakes under the waves have waves of their own.
