Koko the gorilla, is a female gorilla who is able to understand more than 1000 signs on the the American Sign Language system and over 2000 words of spoken English.
Koko had a pet kitten, which she received on her birthday on July 1984. It was noted that Koko cared for that kitten as if it were a little baby gorilla. The kitten one day escaped from Koko’s cage and was hit by a car.
When she was told of what happened, this is how she responded.
It was also noted that afterwards she made weeping sounds like a human.
And for anyone whose interested in animal language, here’s an interesting article on researchers translating chimp language
I can’t help it… I just feel so useless.
This is the greatest tweet in the history of tweets
why does this make me feel mad
Because he’s considered powerful, and she’s considered a whore.
i think they were referring to the fact that thEY’RE BOTH DEFYING THE FUCKING LAWS OF GRAVITY AND THE ONE TIME I TRIED HANGING OFF A MONKEY BAR I BROKE MY NOSE
Thank you :) I have a bunch, here we go. Please search up the following movies for triggers before watching.
The Lovely Bones (Watch Here): Really enjoyed this movie for it’s concept of life after death. I could watch it again and again. It’s about a girl who get’s her life taken away at an early age. She watches her family fall apart and then fall back together. Most importantly, her murderer gets the karma he deserves.
The Orphanage (Watch Here): This had some horror elements but the ending just made me so sad. Literally I still have a giant wound in my heart because of it. It’s a black, empty feeling you get. It was unexpected and this movie is phenomenal.
The 4th Kind (Watch Here): For some reason this movie really unnerved me. The way it’s set, the plot, it’s just… a tad bit scary. I was too afraid to look outside my window because I thought I’d see a smiling white owl, oh jesus.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (Watch Here): Another one that broke me into literal pieces. Once again, the plot twist, the ending, the message all remarkable. I think I was depressed for a full week after this.
Legally Blonde (Watch Here): I watch this movie when I’m feeling down and unmotivated to get me back. I love Elle Woods and what she stands for. I love what she does, and how happy and cheerful she is despite people around her trying to bring her down. I love how she doesn’t hurt/mistreat others when they insult her day after day. Instead she works on bettering herself. And she works really hard. Love, love, love.
Peter Pan 2003 (Watch Here): This movie is just a personal favorite of mine. It reminds me of childhood and how I used to obsess over Peter Pan & fairies when I was young. I really, really wanted them to be real. I really wanted to have an adventure. My entire play time revolved around this and this only.
The Uninvited (Watch Here): One of the first psychological thrillers I watched. I really liked it. I’m also in love with Emily Browning and her style. I liked the plot twist and the macabre concepts.
A Walk to Remember (Watch Here): I don’t like romantic movies. I’m not a huge fan of them. Most are pretty cliche & relatively boring to me, but this one strikes me in the heart. I love the soundtracks and I love the plot.
no image has ever described my life quite so well
how do i ask a boy out
roses are red
violets are blue
guess what, my bed
has room for two
OH MY GOD NO
twinkle twinkle little star
we can do it in a car
row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
i can make you scream
I feel like the last one is verging dangerously into serial killer territory
