i’m so upset

I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb

they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!

I can’t

present active boōpresent infinitive boāreperfect active boāvīsupine boātum

Recte!

if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter

do they speak latin because it’s a dead language

whatthefauna:

Swimming penguins are slowed by the friction created by their bodies cutting through the water. However, they can almost triple their speed by releasing tiny bubbles of air that get caught in their feathers. This cuts drag in short bursts and helps penguins launch themselves out of the water up to 6 feet in the air.
