Imagine swimming in the ocean and having this swim up to you.
Happily, the chances of that are remote, since the Sloane’s Viperfish (Chauliodus sloani) lives in depths up to 2,500 meters.  Sloane’s viperfish is a dragonfish of the genus Chauliodus, found in all tropical and subtropical oceans. Their length is between 20 and 35 cm.
As a species, Sloane’s viperfish holds the world record for largest teeth relative to head size in a fish. It has teeth so large it must open its mouth to make the jaws vertical before it can swallow prey. When the mouth is closed, the teeth overlap the jaws. It eats large prey by lowering the internal skeleton of the gills, allowing the prey to pass into the throat without interference. It can impale prey on the teeth by swimming at them with the first vertebrabehind the head acting as a shock absorber. Sloane’s viperfish is approximately 28 cm (11 in) long. Its head is about 2 cm (0.8 in) and its teeth are just over half this length.

ISN’T THAT THING FROM FINDING NEMO????

I didn’t give up because I stopped loving you, I gave up because it hurt too much.

People Bring Me Down… Not The Other Way Around

People wonder why I am slightly depressed. Hmm. I wonder why? Maybe it’s because people always put me down!

Take for today, as an example. I was talking to a couple of my friends, and they didn’t really like my English skills. But when I said that I wanted to be an English Major… They laughed! Oh yeah, thanks for destroying of any self confidence I might have had guys!

And of course my parents aren’t any help at all. With the whole I-want-to-go-to-Princeton thing and Oh-Savahna-You-Are-Not-Doing-Too-Well-In-Your-Studies thing… I feel sort of like no one is there to encourage me in life. No one at all. They all just leave me, and it feels like they don’t care.

Lonely. Not Depressed.

My loneliness suffocates me. I can’t talk to anyone, because almost no one wants to listen. Those who do, stay for only so long before moving on. It’s hard to live, when all I want to do is go to sleep and never wake. The people who surround me remind me often of my imperfections, and it hurts, even though I know they don’t mean to. When I go to bed at night, it’s only the stories in my head that help me fall asleep. Dreams haunt me at night and people hurt me by day. The never ending cycle is maddening. I wish someone would hear me, but no one ever will. Even if people hear me, they wouldn’t understand. They would all think that I’m depressed. One point for me, I think bitterly. No one understand, and I don’t know if anyone ever will.

The people that I am able to talk to, they may be able to understand. But they wouldn’t be able to help. They aren’t near me. I need someone, to hold me. To never let go. Even though I think that love is a foolish emotion. I yearn for it. I crave it. I am a living paradox. And I hate it. I hate myself, sometimes, I want to kill myself. But I can’t cause myself pain. Sad right? That my inability to hurt myself causes me even more misery. I’m just a coward. A bloody coward. And I hate it.

For some reason, I’m getting the feeling that it’s not normal for siblings to steal your wallet from you.

That awkward moment when you accidentally tun into the same person from a previous chat, you guess correctly and they sign off.

That sad, sinking feeling when the one you like’s world won’t change after you’re gone.
I want a hug from you, but I don’t know how to ask.

I love you. But you don’t love me, do you?
