Peace be upon you. Please know that my prayers are with you as you face the bigotry and hatred of those who do not know the difference between actual Islam and the twisted and ungodly actions of extremists such as the ISIS group. Please know that I love you and I hold you in my heart. I pray that you will be safe from danger and violence at the hands of those who cannot look far enough past their own vitriol to see you as their brothers and sisters, fellow countrymen, and children of the same God. May God give you strength, comfort, and peace in the face of prejudice. May your faith and hope be deepened. May you feel the presence of the Almighty constantly encircling you.
Bismillah al-rahman al-rahim. Amen.
Amen, amen.Source: notalwaysluminous

I can’t even hear what this dude’s saying but look at how ineffectually angry this bird is.
I’ve had days where I’ve wanted ti shriek like this at people too.
As a side note, I love that barn owls are used to often in art, and considered the most beautiful species, yet they make a noise like Satan’s chalkboard.
So much for owls saying hoot :U
"Are we ready, little one?"
*SCREECH OF MURDEROUS RAGE*
I’ve got nothing but love for folks who call angry, screeching predators ‘little one’.
i just want you all to know i played this with my window open out here in the country and when it stopped another owl answered
It’s easy to understand why many cultures believed owls were bad omens

That’s Sugilite. Guess who provided her voice?

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
ALS is an awful, terrifying disease. And as annoying as internet fads can be, the fact is that the Ice Bucket Challenge has raised a ton of money for ALS research. Keep that ball rolling.

Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish.
THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS
Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.
Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.
this continues to be the best reply to a criticizing comment on this site
