Science fiction. Life in outer space. Random musings. Reblogging. Animated .gifs. Cute animals. Maybe some computer programming nerdery.

I like monospaced fonts.

I'm still a Tumblr newbie/trying to figure out how this particular social network works.

I found a way to make the Battleship movie mildly tolerable for a few minutes:

Genus: Atopodentatus

…an extinct genus of unusual marine reptiles that are known from the early Middle Triassic of southwestern China. Currently the genus Atopodentatus houses only a single species A. unicus, which was discovered in Yunnan, China. A. unicus is noted for its bizarre upper mandible which has teeth running along its jawline and up a vertical split in the middle, giving it a zipper-like appearance. Due to A. unicus’ unusual dentition it is thought that is was likely a filter feeder, sifting invertebrates out of the ocean floor.

Classification
