"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.” - Gary Provost

Feline Comparison: Huge by sindos

why is the snow leopard “ounce”

Ounce is the traditional name for the snow leopard. Although not really in common use anymore it is still an acceptable alternative name for the species. 

I assume since “snow leopard” wouldn’t have fitted into the space it made sense for the person who made it to use ounce instead. 

A fuck-ton of feline comparison references.

There’s a reason why people have phobias of the open waters.

It’s called imagination.

Let’s hope Percy doesn’t have to deal with these buggers. The boy deserves a break.
