i was standing next to the copier in the teacher’s lounge and a student came in to ask another teacher a question and about three seconds later, another student lunged in and smashed a glass bottle on that student’s head
the teachers wrestled the students away from each other and they’re both physically fine, but the teacher who forced the kid with the bottle away had to lock the door to the teacher’s lounge
so she and i and my co-resident stood in silence with this student and waited for about two minutes for someone to come and get him, none of us moving, just breathing
it was the scariest and most intense moment of my life
Looks like Target’s stocking the new Starfleet maternity uniforms
I CAN’T STOP MYSELF I MISS THEM OKAY

BUT I MISS THEM

The Lake Monsters of America
People love to fill in mysterious areas of nature with myths of monsters. Early maps had voids of knowledge marked with warnings that “Here be Dragons,”sasquatches are believed to be prowling the thick forests, and legends tell of strange creatures that might be concealed beneath the surface of our lakes. Here we present our map of American lake monsters (view it large here), showing the spread of cryptids that might be lurking in the depths of the waters of the United States.
You’ll see a good share of serpent-like animals of the Loch Ness Monsters variety, such as Isabella of Bear Lake in Idaho who was spotted by a Mormon pioneer in the 19th century and even had Brigham Young himself send a hunting party after the possible plesiosaur. There’s also the famed Champ of Lake Champlain, possibly the most famous of American lake monsters, and the Lake Dillon monster in Wyoming that some think is being suppressed by a secret society. However, that’s just where the fun of this fauna folklore begins, as there are also legends of monolithic turtles, webbed hominids, a goat man, a winged alligator snake, a horse-headed alligator, a giant killer octopus, and an eel with a pig head. Just for kicks, we’ve included some illustrations of the more curious entities on our Lake Monsters of America map.
