ya’ll i’m gonna cry
this is a choanocyte (think itsy bitsy unicellular sponge) of genus Salpingoeca attached to a diatom (little wondrous living glass sunlight factories). choanocytes are mostly sessile (they live attached to something solid), but these little dudes live attached to to diatoms, which drift in the open ocean, and filter bacteria in a pelagic niche that is out of reach to many other filter feeders. that diatomaceous strand is smaller than the naked eye can detect- and look at how small the choanocyte is in relation to that
isn’t it a wonder?
the picture belongs to the incredible microscopist dr. ralf wagner. go look at his stuff

Mother: *sits calmly, looking at her…

The meanest thing my boyfriend has ever said to me was when we were playing Mario Kart and he asked if he could take my controller.

When I asked why he wanted it, he replied “Because I want to watch Peach win for once.”

Mario Kart destroys relationships.
