This is the skull of an elephant. Previously the cavity in the skull was mistaken as a eyehole and thus the elephant skull became the basis of the myth of the legendary creature, Cyclops.
Elephant Shrews make a network of cleared pathways through the undergrowth which they patrol for food. The pathways also make for a quick escape route should danger threaten.
Today, after watching David Lynch's "The Elephant Man", I decided to do something different. I turned my TV's color into 0 and watched "Paul Blart Mall Cop" in black and white. Absolutely incredible what one pallette change does for the experience. It's not better nor worse, it's just different.

Addressing the elephant in the room: Clones
I feel like the cloning research is grossly underwhelming. I expected a bunch of events regarding the social status of clones and how they are treated in the Empire. Synths are one thing, but clones are a whole new can of worms regarding morality.
I always wondered why there was no clone rebellion, considering how they’re even more expendable and cheaper than bots in terms of military costs, but with far greater sentience. How would normies react to clones slowly replacing their race?

Pregnant Elephant's death - Word from Kerala.
Contrary to what some news outlets have been perpetuating, the elephant was not 'fed' the pineapple filled with explosives. It happened to eat the pineapple that was filled with crackers. As to why there are crackers in a fruit, it's a common practice used to kill wild boars that destroy crops when you do farming close to forests. Yes, it is inhumane, and illegal. Hundreds, if not thousands of wild boars are killed every year.
It didn't happen in Malappuram. It happened in Palakkad (my home district). Some politicians try to portray this happened in Malappuram because Malappuram is a place with a Muslim population. They are using the death of an elephant to spew venom and push their narrative of "Muslims = Evil"

"Safoora Zargar denied bail again". This won't evoke any response from media and people, because accidental death of an elephant is more important for a morally dead nation than incarceration of an innocent muslim woman.
Jamia Millia Islamia student Safoora Zargar, arrested on 10 April in connection with the Delhi Riots, denied bail by Additional Sessions Court judge Dharmender Rana after four hour long hearing at Patiala Court in Delhi.
Safoora Zargar is 21 weeks pregnant. Her lawyers argued that she has polycystic ovary syndrome increasing her chances of a miscarriage. Judge Rana said, “Considering the material on record, it cannot be said that there is no prima facie case made out against the accused.”
Safoora Zargar’s lawyers argued there is no evidence linking anything that she said or did with the Delhi Riots in February. Denying the pregnant woman bail, Judge Rana there was prima facie evidence to show there was “a conspiracy to at least blockade the roads (chakka jam)...”
Her lawyers said she was not even in northeast Delhi on 24 Feb. Judge said “mere absence” does not help if prima facie evidence of conspiracy...”evidence of acts and statements made by any one of the conspirators in further

Indian celebrities can express their sympathy for killing an elephant but they can't express their grief for migrant workers death. Why is that?
Recently I've seen some celebrities expressed their grief for elephant killing which was appreciative. But didn't speak up about India's current situation, death about migrant workers and many more. They shouldn't only be limited to their profession. they have huge followers, they can ask their fans to help needy, but they don't and didn't.

Finally discussed the elephant in the room.
I've been a long time lurker, occasionally replying to a few posts, but mostly upvoting support. This will be my first post here.
We've been married for 18 years and have children. I'm 42MHL and my wife is 49FLL. For over 2 years now we have had no physical contact with each other, not even holding hands or hugging. It had been dwindling down for several years before then, with there being months between sexual contact before we completely stopped, and with her turning away when I would try to kiss her.
We have still been living together this whole time, but we would be more roommates living together in the same house instead of a husband and wife. We would have friendly conversations about current events, upcoming appointments, what the kids have been doing, what needed to get done around the house; just the routine minutia that you would talk about with a platonic friend. We would always avoid talking about our relationships and feelings. We never argued either. We always gave each
