WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU

pew, pew!

SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR URGENT

YOU CALLED!?
This fish is not actually spitting bioluminescent spit…it’s spitting out its bioluminescent food! Some clever scientist has put some bioluminescent ostracods in a tank with some little fish. When agitated, these ostracods (tiny shirmpthings) secrete chemicals that, when combined, emit light.
Why?
You’re seeing why right here. Just before the fish spits it out, those light chemicals are filling up the belly of the fish. Now, it isn’t poisonous or anything…but the fish wants NOTHING TO DO WITH IT because the fish has predators too. 
So yeah, if you’re a little fish and suddenly you’re FREAKING GLOWING, your lifespan has just gotten a lot shorter. 
As soon as the fish realizes that there’s light emanating from its belly, it pukes out the glowing juices (and the little shrimp). You can actually see the ostracod in this gif swimming away down toward the bottom of the tank happy as a clam…or a shrimp. 
Evolution is AWESOME.

Did I mention there’s a time jump between Seasons 5 and 6 Because apparently that’s a thing that’s happening, during which time Kurt and Blaine will have decided they’re too young to get married and Blaine will have returned to Lima to date Karofsky. Look. Karofsky’s story was as subtle as a kick to the dick, but there was a sweetness to it. But if you think for a single second that Blaine Anderson would date the guy who physically and psychologically tortured the love of his life, you are bonaners. BO.NAN.ERS. Sigh. Another of course, I guess. Of course these writers will handle their most beloved couple’s final episodes with the grace of a tyrannosaurus rex at brunch. Finger sandwiches? Fuck that noise. Not when you can eat the whole head off a live cow! By Accurate Infographic: “Glee” Season 6 Shitshow Matrix by Heather Hogan | September 16, 2014 (via jenndesq)
