Guys, let me tell you about orcas.
Orca whales are mean motherfuckers. They cruise the oceans with only two things in mind: one, having sex, and two, eating every poor fuck they find out there that’s smaller than them. They are such badass motherfuckers that even great white motherfucking sharks don’t dare fuck with them, which in my books, places them above the sperm whale as Biggest Badass of the Ocean. And why don’t sharks bother them, you may wonder? Because orcas fucking learned that if you flip a shark over they go into a sort of coma, so now they do it intentionally so they can eat the motherfucking sharks. Not only that, but orcas have also learned how to hunt sperm whales and motherfucking sea birds.
The orca whale lives in a matriarchal pod. Every pod has unique hunting methods and whatnot, which is passed down from parent to offspring- these scary fuckers have formed civilizations. And what do they do for fun, apart from hopping around on the water’s surface and grinning like crazy mofos? They hunt for fun, going so far as to tip over ice floes and beach themselves just for the thrill of killing.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Orca whales are too damn cute and smiley looking to be heartless predators of the sea. Well, let me counter-argue with this photo:
THOSE ARE NOT THE TEETH OF A CREATURE THAT WANTS TO BE YOUR FRIEND.
Now I have that Michael Jackson song stuck in my head.
I want to take a moment here to celebrate the seal in this .gif. Look at this badass. You know they’re running scared as shit from this multi-ton oceanic death machine—this fucker that eats goddamn GREAT WHITE SHARKS like it saw Jaws and thought, Yeah. I could do better—and yet when the orca comes sliding up toward the seal’s ass, what does the seal do? Desperately dig for a hidden reserve of strength? Simply give up? Hell, no. That seal turns around and BITES THE MULTI-TON OCEANIC DEATH MACHINE ON THE NOSE. Fuck you, asshole!
Anyway, the reason I love orcas is because they’re the raptors of the ocean. COMING 4 U LIVE FROM THE ATLANTIC
Holy 2 1/2 twisting yurchenko
Prettiest Amanar I’ve ever seen.
She remains one to be watched- especially as she is the right age for 2012, being 1996 born
The tumbling is insane! If you thought Shawn Johnson was impressive, this just blows… your… mind. Her choreography reminds me of Dominique Moceanu, no? So, I find it interesting that she was born in 96.
WOW. And yeah this is TOTALLY like Dominique Moceanu’s ‘96 routine…especially the little foot thing at like 0:43. And all of the cutesy choreography for that fact. Who used this floor music? Tasha Schwikert? It was someone back in 2004ish.
It was def Tasha Schwikert.
I was waiting for this to show up on Tumblr because I was too lazy to put it up myself.
#1 SHE IS SO ADORABLE OMG
#2 She’s gotten neater and more polished since the last time I saw her.
#3 DEM TUMBLING PASSES
#4 I really hope she does great things for Japanese women’s gymnastics because tbh Koko is okay and I’m really happy for her 2009 successes, but I do not find her gymnastics remotely interesting at all ever.
A QUAD TURN ON BEAM! A BEAUTIFUL ONE! AND CHECK OUT HER LITTLE YEEEEESSSSSS! AFTER SHE DOES IT!
I saw this earlier. UGH. HOT SHIT.
That control is fucking amazing. The sad thing is that FIG will NEVER give it the difficulty rating it deserves because of their dumb ass artificial capping of D scores for non-acro. Dance elements are usually based on a different skill set but but they are still FUCKING HARD.
I was so done when they gave Sanne Wevers’ double L turn on the beam an E. The fuck. There are like one or two people in the world AT MOST who can even do a single L turn on beam properly. And they lowballed Lauren Mitchell’s triple wolf turn the same way.
Granted, they might be discouraging that because it’s ugly. Of course, they refuse to downgrade the fucking side somi so I’m not even trying to hear it.
