This was the most realistic and saddest thing I’ve ever seen in a kids movie.
They didn’t use any words through this sequence, and you still knew exactly what was going on and it was a hundred times more powerful for that silence.
I love how majestic the bald eagle looks from the side
but from straight on it just looks scared and confused

Women On Death Row.
It is indeed rare for a woman to be given the death sentence in the United States. Of the 3,487 persons on death row in the U.S. as of June 2004, only 49 of them, or 1.3 percent, were women.
Of the 49 women who were on death row in 2004, 55 percent (27) of them were convicted of killing their children, their husbands and/or boyfriends or both, according to Victor L. Streib’s research in “Death Penalty For Female Offenders, January 1, 1973 through June 30, 2004.” Seven of those 27 women who killed family members killed more than one victim.
Few Women on Death Row
There are approximately 50,000 women in prisons in the United States, only 0.1 percent of them are on death row. In comparison to men, death sentencing rates remain very low, with only 566 total executions carried out against women since the first recorded execution in 1632 — or less than 3 percent of the total executions.
Very few women enter the capital murder system, and fewer still are ever actually executed, according to the Death Penalty Information Center:
- Women account for only 1 in 10 murder arrests.
- Women account for only 1 in 50 death sentences imposed at the trial level.
- Women account for only 1 in 71 persons presently on death row.
- Women account for only 1 in 92 persons actually executed in the modern era (since 1976).

Liquid is the classical state of matter with a definite volume but no fixed shape.
cats are liquid
How the fuck do cats work.
FUN FACT: I read in the books about cats that i have, and as long as their heads fit through a space, they can manuveur the rest of their bodies to fit as well.
Isn’t that what their whiskers are for? To judge if their head/body will fit?
Yep. It’s also why they generally don’t like being wet, their fur and whiskers cling to their body and it’s like being touched all over/losing your sense of space.
