some muggleborn like “i want to be an astronaut when i grow up!”

wizard kids like “wtf is an astronaut”

"oh you know…the people who go to the moon"

implying that magical children would know literally nothing outside of the wizarding worldimage

Washoe was a chimp who was taught sign language.

One of Washoe’s caretakers was pregnant and missed work for many weeks after she miscarried. Roger Fouts recounts the following situation:

"People who should be there for her and aren’t are often given the cold shoulder—her way of informing them that she’s miffed at them. Washoe greeted Kat [the caretaker] in just this way when she finally returned to work with the chimps. Kat made her apologies to Washoe, then decided to tell her the truth, signing "MY BABY DIED." Washoe stared at her, then looked down. She finally peered into Kat’s eyes again and carefully signed "CRY", touching her cheek and drawing her finger down the path a tear would make on a human (Chimpanzees don’t shed tears). Kat later remarked that one sign told her more about Washoe and her mental capabilities than all her longer, grammatically perfect sentences." [23]

Washoe herself lost two children; one baby died shortly after birth of a heart defect, the other baby, Sequoyah, died of a staph infection at two months of age.

more about Washoe:

after the death of her children, researchers were determined to have Washoe raise a baby and brought in a ten month chimpanzee named Loulis. one of the caretakers went to Washoe’s enclosure and signed “i have a baby for you.” Washoe became incredibly excited, yelling and swaying from side to side, signing “baby” over and over again. then she signed “my baby.”

the caretaker came back with Loulis, and Washoe’s excitement disappeared entirely. she refused to pick Loulis up, instead signing “baby” apathetically; it was clear that the baby she thought she was getting was going to be Sequoyah. eventually Washoe did approach Loulis, and by the next day the two had bonded and from then on she was utterly devoted to him.

*information shamelessly paraphrased from When Elephants Weep by Jeffrey Masson.

Even more interestingly, after Washoe and Loulis bonded, she started teaching him American Sign Language the same way that human parents teach their children language. It only took Loulis eight days to learn his first sign from Washoe, and aside from the seven that his human handlers learned around him, he learned to speak in ASL just as fluently as Washoe and was able to communicate with humans in the same way she could.

More creepy bits for sixpenceee I don’t know too much on the backgrounds of these pictures. Where they came from, if they’re true, real or what not but I will say that the Jim Sullivan album and disappearance IS real, I downloaded the U.F.O. album, that features some hauntingly beautiful songs like Highways, Johnny and my personal favorite, Sandman. It’s a sort of old timesy twangish country/rock sound that just sticks with you after it’s finished. This was the ONLY album released, he left his wife and child(ren?) in LA to find his fortune in Nashville, but never made it.

I cant help right now, but hopefully some of y’all can.

I signed up. If you’re concerned with this situation and have the means to please consider doing so as well. Raising awareness is good, but it only does so much if everyone expects “someone else” to be the one who takes action. This is a concrete way to directly influence the issue if you’re in a situation that allows you to afford it.

The Characters who play out certain parts in our dreams are not imaginary. Your mind is not inventing those faces. They are real faces of real people that you have seen during your span of life but you might not know or remember them. The priest in your latest dream could have been a cop who might have fined you for a traffic violation when you were in college. Now what about those grotesque faces you see in your nightmares ? The lady who has three eyes. The man who had a burnt face with vampire teeth. When did you see them?

The next time you see an infant looking at an empty space and crying for no reason, look away.
