These walking pinecones are called Pangolins and they exist. 

They also resemble a sandslash. 

Also the most hunted animal in the world. Poached for their shells and meat, used in “medicine” and eaten, respectively.

Aww, here’s an article (x)

SAVE THE SANDSLASH!

ROOT CANAL PROCEDURE

A root canal is a procedure done to help repair a tooth that’s been severely decayed or infected. 

A root canal procedure is performed when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected or the pulp becomes damaged. During the procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.

A mass extinction are period on Earth’s history where an abnormally large number of species die out simultaneously or within a limited time period.
Here are the 5 biggest:
Ordovician-Silurian mass extinction:  During this time most life was in the ocean. Sea creatures like the trilobites, brachiopods and graptolites were wiped out. Almost 85% of them were completely gone. What happened was there was an ice age that caused a climate change. Sea levels fell and the chemistry of the ocean was messed up.
Late Devonian mass extinction: This was a series of extinctions over the course of a million years, and not a single event. Life in shallow seas were impacted. Much of the sea bed became devoid of oxygen. Changes in sea level, asteroid impacts climate change have also been blamed for this mass extinction.
Permian mass extinction: This mass extinction has been nicknamed the great dying. A staggering 96% of species have died out. All life on Earth today is the surviving 4%. There were at least two separate phases of extinction spread over millions of years. Marine creatures were particularly badly affected and insects suffered the only mass extinction of their history. Many causes have been proposed for the event: asteroid impact, flood basalt eruptions, catastrophic methane release, a drop in oxygen levels etc. 
Triassic-Jurassic mass extinction: Climate change, flood basalt eruptions and an asteroid impact have all been blamed for loss of life. Many types of animal died out, including lots of marine reptiles, some large amphibians, many reef-building creatures and large numbers of cephalopod molluscs. Roughly half of all the species alive at the time became extinct. Strangely, plants were not so badly affected.
Cretaceous- Tertiary mass extinction: This is famed for the death of the dinosaurs. Many other organisms perished however such as flowering plants & ammonites.This extinction was due to flood basalt eruptions affecting the world’s climate, combined with drastic falls in sea level. Then a huge asteroid or comet struck the seabed near the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. 
Many propose that the next big extinction won’t be because of natural disasters but because of man made ones.

JOINTS IN MOTION

As said by IFL science

Cameron Drake of San Francisco has created a collection of magnificent images showing joints in motion. He was aided by orthopedic physician Dr. Noah Weiss and the finished product is completely amazing. If you’d like to know more about the project, please check out Drake’s blog.

Famous Failures

I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.

"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."

I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.

WATCH IT HERE

"Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did."

— Robin Williams, Jack (1996)
