Miranda. 22. Useless wastrel who daydreams in sequins, comic book expressions and musical numbers.
Prone to posting feminist quotes, various and varying babes, items of the literary and comic nerd culture and the more than occasional tentacle.
Any reaction images/gifs I post (unless they are of my face) are almost definitely not mine.
Influenced by 16th Century Baroque opulence and Gothic design, Adam Wallacavage’sShiny Monsters show at the Philadelphia Art Alliance, is as sumptuous as it is unusual. His current solo exhibition is an installation project consisting of multiple gallery spaces that showcase his exquisite and bizarre chandeliers. Some of his recent works in the show featuring toys and Hello Kitty iconography are inspired by pop culture and Wallacavage’s love of vintage Americana.

Limbs of the Cephalopoda
Whether squids, octopuses, and nautilus have “arms” or “tentacles” is often simply a matter of semantics, but the most accepted definitions (from what I’ve found) tend to define the “arm” as a tapered limb, with two rows of suckers along its entire length. “Tentacle” is typically a length of tapered limb with no suckers, leading to a distal club-like appendage, covered in suckers.
One exception would be limbs in the nautilus - they have up to 90 un-suckered limbs, but their limbs are called “tentacles” by those who study them, even without the terminal club.

That’s the Hawaiian bobtail squid! The first time I saw them in the lab where I worked with them for a summer, they were having sex.
But if you think that’s cute, you should see the babies. Here’s some pics I took of them:
