Roman Emperor Caracalla was assassinated on this day in 217, four days after his twenty-ninth birthday. Born Marcus Aurelius Severus Antoninus Augustus, Caracalla was the son of Septimius Severus, with whom he co-ruled the empire from 198 to 211.  He infamously had his brother Geta killed that same year to secure sole rule for himself. Though viewed as one of the nastiest Roman empires (in addition to fratricide, he authorized numerous massacres and persecutions), Caracalla also commissioned one of the great works of Roman architecture with the enormous bath complex in Rome that carries his name.

Faithful Unto Death, Sir Edward John Poynter
The Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, England, has a painting of a Roman soldier faithfully standing guard in ancient Pompeii. The painting was inspired by an archaeological discovery in Pompeii of an ashen-encased Roman soldier in full military gear. The volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD covered the city in lava, capturing the people and their culture in a moment of time. The painting Faithful Unto Death is a testimony to the sentinel’s continuing vigil even as his world was being engulfed in fiery death. [x]

So everyone knows this little guy from finding nemo, right? Remember when nemo first met him, and he said: “See this tentacle? It’s actually shorter than all my other tentacles, but you can’t really tell.”
And in octopuses, one of their tentacles is actually their penis, and is structured slightly differently from the rest of their tentacles.
Guys.
Pearl was showing off his dick.

I thought Pearl was a girl.

I can’t wait for the day that I get a small apartment in a big city with someone that I love. Like nothing excites me more, I find myself thinking about it at 3 am, my mind races, thinking about how we’ll decorate it. Be able to come home from work, make dinner together, hug them from behind while we wait. Eat and watch our favorite shows, go to bed and not have to worry about being apart because we have each other in our arms every night when we drift off to sleep.
