Physalia physalis Despite appearances, the Portuguese man-of-war is not a jellyfish. Strictly speaking, it’s not even an “it” but a “they”. This jelly is a siphonophore, a single animal made up of multiple organisms, in this case, four individual polyps. One forms the buoyant gas-filled head, one catches small fish and shrimp with whip-like tendrils, and two others handle the messy business of digestion and reproduction.

Interesting to hear peoples different opinions on the houses of the Narnia characters- Ok, I pinned this quite a while ago but it's been getting a lot of repins lately so I thought I'd  update my thoughts.  I think I like the picture at the top the best, mostly because I like to compare them to the Hogwarts Founders, with Peter as Godric Gryffindor, Susan as Rowena Ravenclaw, etc.

video: Girl who was paralyzed for 11 days surprises her nurse.  Now that's the type of person who should be a nurse. You can see the genuine care and elation when she sees her patient stand up. Too many medical staff now a days are just uncaring with no bedside manners, no empathy, no kindness. Kudos to this lady.
