I always wondered about that whole celibacy thing with you people. How does that work?
This is one of my favorite childhood stories.

We have this book in my library bin for the first grade I teach, and I read it to my students…
…a girl started crying and it was mildly hilarious.
THIS WAS READ TO ME IN PRESCHOOL AND I LOVED IT
I like this version. The original or at least the one that I read in middle school took place during the French Revolution and the man met a young woman who had a green scarf tied around her neck. They fall in love and for like a month he asks her why she wears the scarf. Eventually curiosity gets the better of him and he unties the scarf and her head falls off because she had been executed the day prior to their meeting. Sometimes the woman is his wife, sometimes she’s just a really beautiful woman, either way, this was one of my favorite stories.
On an Island north of Siberia, frozen remains of a mammoth have been discovered with blood that is STILL liquid! The 10,000-year-old beast was found on one of the Lyakhovsky Islands in the Novosibirsk archipelago off the northern coast of Siberia. Researchers from the Northeastern Federal University in Yakutsk poked the remains with an ice pick and, incredibly, blood flowed out.
Since the temperature during excavation was -7 to -10 degrees celsius, the scientist say that “It may be assumed that the blood of mammoths had some cryoprotective properties”. How fucking awesome is that!?
