Over a year ago, just as we were on the verge of removing a nonsensical and poorly performing card I’d written for Cards Against Humanity back before we knew how to write well, “Swooping” took on a new significance thanks to Urban Dictionary. I found the card safeguarded by a self-referential paradox further guaranteed by its cultural dissemination: the more people were confused by “Swooping,” the more people looked it up on Urban Dictionary and upvoted it in an effort to make sense of the card.
In the spirit of giving this holiday season, please help me keep this mediocre card in the game by continuing to upvote it. Thank you for your time, and long live the Paradox.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY VAMPIRES HItLER HAD IN HIS ARMY!?
|—||Stephen Fry (via wholelottaquotes)|
I feel really bad for the sea lion that Seaworld forces to approach his/her natural predator.
Is it bad that I’m laughing extremely hard at how the orca just annihilates the sea lon in the 2nd gif?
all I can hear is NYOOM
You wanna know something cool? Recent studies of orcas seem to show that during the seal breeding season, they knowingly limit their intake of seals. In fact, there are documented cases of orcas gently grabbing seal pups and pulling them into shore to keep them safe from being eaten.
Why? You might wonder.
The case studies seem to say that the orcas know that no baby seals growing up means less seals next year. They are so intelligent that they’re aware of their own impact as a predatory species on their prey and actively work to conserve the number of that prey species for the future. Maybe we could learn something about moderation and conservation from these animals.
They should really be granded nonhuman personhood like they were in India.
Intelligence of Orcas. Well said.
