Aang’s all grown up
I really enjoyed this.
Our portrayals of adult Aang up to this point had always been so serious. We though this was a perfect opportunity to show that deep down he was still the same fun-loving trickster. P.S. Ryu drew both of these, something like 9 years apart! P.P.S. I *JUST* noticed Sokka’s hair is colored incorrectly in that still. The top part is colored like his shaved sides. Is it too late to call a retake on footage we made in 2004?
This is proof that parlor tricks, when done well, redirect the eye away from reverse Sokka hair.
Indian Flint Knapping Tools
Lithic technology, or stone tools, first appeared nearly 2.5 million years ago in the Oldowan culture of Tanzania. These early attempts at flint knapping evolved over time into a skilled craft, one that was handed down to the indigenous cultures of North America. Although few tools are used, flint knapping is a deceptively difficult craft requiring a high degree of skill and experience to accomplish. Using basic tools, a wide range of flint knapping techniques have developed.

It is with a heavy heart that I post this.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of one of our northern white rhinos, Suni.
Suni was one of the four northern whites residing on Ol Pejeta Conservancy. He was born 34 years ago at the Dvůr Králové Zoo as the first-ever northern white rhino to be born in captivity. Together with one other male and two females, he was translocated from the zoo to Ol Pejeta in 2009.
Our rangers found him on the morning of October 17th, 2014, dead in his boma. Suni was not a victim of poaching and we have yet to establish the cause of his sudden death. The Kenya Wildlife Service vets will conduct a post mortem as soon as possible. In 2006, his father Saút died in the Dvur Kralove Zoo by natural causes at the same age as Suni was now.
There are now only six northern white rhinos left in the world. Suni was one of the last two breeding males in the world and no northern white rhinos are known to have survived in the wild. Consequently the species now stands at the brink of complete extinction, a sorry testament to the greed of the human race.
We will continue to do what we can to work with the remaining three animals on Ol Pejeta in the hope that our efforts will one day result in the successful birth of a northern white rhino calf.
I humbly ask everyone to please, donate what they can to this conservancy, where 3 of the remaining living nothern white rhinos are being cared for. This is their only hope to continue the species. We humans have killed the rest, we should be making every possible effort to fix that. Signal boost this, get it plastered everywhere, donate what you can- let Suni’s death and all the others before him not die in vain. Please, do what you can to help, before it’s too late for them.
I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.
