This GIF shows how the toucan releases heat using its beak to cool itself off.

The toucan beak isn’t just beautiful, it’s also an adjustable thermal radiator that the bird uses to warm and cool itself. When the bird is hot, the blood vessels in their beak open up to allow more circulation to enable heat to escape. Birds can’t sweat so they have to come up with some life hacks to get the job done.

Why should kids be taught to hate the police? Because there are 2.3 million people in jail in the US right now and every single one was put there by a fucking cop. Some people talk about good cops and bad cops, but a good cop, a cop doing their job properly, still puts nonviolent drug users in jail for many years, totally ruining their lives as they lose their jobs, houses, cars, romantic partners, access to college, and become substantially less employable upon release. A cop doing their job properly still gives homeless people tickets for vagrancy which they obviously can’t pay and when a warrant is issued as a result an officer doing their job properly arrests those homeless people. An officer doing their job properly peppersprays and arrests environmental protesters so that logging companies can clear-cut old growth forests. An officer doing their job properly is evicting a family from their home as you read this because the parents’ jobs were shipped overseas so that the bosses could make eight figures a year instead of seven. Those people will become homeless, vagrancy tickets will be written, warrants will be issued… And then there’s the “bad ones”.

Karl Marx can see the fundamental contradictions in capitalist economies, but can he see why kids love cinnamon toast crunch?

The answer is no, Karl Marx cannot see why kid’s love cinnamon toast crunch. Marx is too busy trying to understand the cereal as a commodity created by alienated labor to realize the obvious truth: its because there are cinnamon sugar swirls in every bite!

The industrial patriarchy has maintained itself in power by means of the most incredible violence, as we have seen in previous chapters. Witch-hunts, torture, and genocide have been regular features of the patriarchy’s arsenal from the age of Constantine to the age of Richard Nixon. These tactics have been effective. I personally doubt, therefore, that mere good intentions, education, and above- ground organizing will ever be enough on our part. Do we really think that such things can stop a civilization that wiped out the witches? Or murdered the Indians? Or sent Jews and Gay people to the ovens? Or bombed Vietnam into the Stone Age? Or infiltrated domestic protest groups and assassinated their leaders? I doubt it. I doubt that we will ever stop the patriarchy until we fan out like viruses in the body politic, when the time is right, carrying our secret weapons, and striking without warning against ruling institutions, and the politicians, industrialists, warlords, and academics that run them. Many will undoubtedly disagree, but without a revolutionary underground, I fear we will again perish like burning faggots.
