An octopus matching the color and texture of the coral quickly changes to a warning white when attacked by a territorial fish.
Many thousands of color-changing cells called chromatophores just below the surface of the skin are responsible for the transformations. The center of each chromatophore contains an elastic sac full of pigment, rather like a tiny balloon. If you squeezed a dye-filled balloon, the color would be pushed to the top, stretching out the surface and making the color appear brighter—and this is the same way chromatophores work. When the sac expands the color is more visible.  Iridophores have stacks of reflecting plates that create iridescent greens, blues, silvers and golds, while leucophores mirror back the colors of the environment, making the animal less conspicuous.
They can change not only their coloring, but also the texture of their skin to match rocks, corals and other items nearby. They do this by controlling the size of projections on their skin, creating textures ranging from small bumps to tall spikes. The result is a disguise that makes them nearly invisible.

"I drove a tank in World War II, isn’t that interesting? I drove a tank and I loved that tank and everyone in it. I drove it over people and right through houses, and I did it out of love."
Love of country?
"No, love of my tank and of everyone in it. There are no finer conversations than those had in the grinding innards of an iron tank. You have a lot to learn. You will find your tank. It just takes time."

I read this all in a heavy slavic accent and it sounds natural

Destruction and passion come naturally to my people.

"but what if he’s bad at sex and he disappoints you!!"

then we’ll be rational adults and experiment and get better together

wow what an idea: tailoring your sex life to one other person so that you know them and please them perfectly!

What are you worrying about doing the do outside of ” I Do”? That’s just something you ding dong diddly don’t!

McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.
