Be Like, Beautiful, and Fucking: trustedwings tumblr Follow adventureisouttheremydear So like do caterpillars know that they re gonna be butterflies or do they just build the cacoon and be like wtf am l doing frauleinninja this post has fucked me up more than any other on this site trustedwings Okay but no, do you understand what happens to a caterpillar once it's in its cocoon? It completely turns into goo. That's right, GOO. The damn thing dissolves and the reforms into the butterfly. Even crazier, the wings of the butterfly are already inside the caterpillar, ready to go, just waiting to float around in some goo and then be a beautiful butterfly. The craziest part?!? A study was done where some caterpillars were exposed to a certain smell and then given an electric shock so eventually the caterpillar associated the smell with the shock. Well after those little hairy noodles came out of the their cocoons as butterflies, they exposed them to the smell again and the butterflies reacted super negatively, as if they were being shocked. A.K.A. not only is there wings floating around in that goo cocoon, there is also a brain, the same, unaltered brain as the caterpillar. The butterfly can recall its days as a caterpillar even after basically being turned into soup. And then it all somehow gets its shit together to be a stupid majestic little beast, and I can't even remember where l put my damn phone Source:lumpiagirl Holy moly. | 19 Posts That'll Make You Say "Fucking Whoa" goo cocoon

 twilight but bella is accidentally super stoned every time edward does
 something weird and supernatural so she never actually notices or figures it out
 by herself, but she points it out every time and scares the hell out of him
 the cullens have had several code reds, all because edward's new lab partner
 keeps brushing up against him unintentionally and going "woan, dude. you re
 like, super cold"
 eventually, after months of them hanging out and her repeatedly missing key
 things he gradually makes more and more obvious
 he is literally sitting underneath the sun and sparkling, and she just squints at
 him, gives him a silly thumbs up, and then a high five shortly after
 he just gives up and tells her
 rosalielesbianhale
 edward being so fed up with keeping the secret from bella so they're lounging
 in the sun, with edward just waiting for it to click, for her to realise that he's not
 human
 bella spends so long looking at him with edward completely frozen in place
 waiting to see what her reaction will be. he's prepared for fear in her eyes, for
 her to scream, to distance herself from him or possibly run away. what he is not
 prepared for is her lazily trailing her finger down the length of his forearm and
