take a moment to realize you have never seen your face in person, just reflections and pictures
some scientists agree that if you saw a clone of yourself, you wouldn’t recognise it as you, because our idea of what we look like is so different from what we actually look like
This gave me anxiety
But if that were true we wouldn’t recognize photos or reflections of other people… -_-
not necessarily, because we’ve seen them in person and we can recognize their facial features as they actually are. a bit of distortion won’t make it so that we won’t recognize them- think of caricatures. however, we’ve only seen the distorted and not quite perfect versions of ourselves in recordings, and that’s what we go off of and recognize. if we saw the original, it would seem foreign.
so there’s a pigeon i used to pass by in my old neighborhood all the time and he was really fat because people would just toss him food and literally he sat in the middle of the sidewalk and people would just step over him, he wouldn’t even flinch. seriously you could sit down next to him and just feed him and he would be chill.
he was there every day and all us locals would affectionately refer to him as ‘lard-ass’
sootonthecarpet asked: In your country they use themes without visible tags in them

I have fruit polos and lollypops be jealous.
omg do many people not know what fruit polos are? they are heaven
In America, we call them lifesavers. They can be chewy or hard candy.
polos aren’t chewy and they also come in mint.
