Three forms of terrestrial mammal locomotion:
PLANTIGRADE: “sole walking”—animals walk by “planting” the full soles of their feet on the ground
DIGITIGRADE: “finger/toe walking”—animals walk with all or most of the length of their toes (“digits”), but not the full soles of their feet
UNGULIGRADE: “hoof walking”—animals walk on only their nails, usually hooves (as in “ungulates”)
This just hasn’t been my week.
The house we were saving up to purchase got broken into and stripped for copper, ruining the wiring, plumbing and hvac systems, causing it to not be a viable option for us anymore. This is the second house this has happened with for us, and apparently copper stripping is a major issue with vacant rural homes right now.
It makes me SO ANGRY that some jackass would ruin an entire house for a few hundred bucks. What a disgusting waste.
Also, got referred to UK oral surgery, with a high risk of a sinus rupture. I’ve had a sinus rupture before, so I’m more than a little scared over that entire mess. Not much scares me worse than doctors. Nothing quite as scary as saying “Oh hey…I don’t know you, and I know you can eff me up for life, but come ahead with that scalpel bro, I trust you.”
