What This Man Found In A Bag Of Mulch Will Blow Your Mind. What He Did With It Will Melt Your Heart.
A Florida man opened a new bag of mulch and, to his surprise, he found a baby squirrel inside. We found the man on Reddit, where he is known by the handle “Nadtacular,” but now the Internet is starting to know him because of his compassion. The baby squirrel appeared to be only days old when he found it. It was so young, he initially mistook it for a mouse or rat. But he decided to take care of it, and lucky for us, document his its development.
As you can see from the photographs, a bond developed between the man and the squirrel, which he named “Zip.” There is no definitive answer to how baby Zip found its way into the bag of mulch, but it’s safe to say Zip appears to be enjoying his new home. It’s also safe to say that this man’s selfless act has restored our hope in humanity. Way to go!

Exotic dancing, indeed.
The Gaelic YearsScottish wizards always had a hard time of it when they came to Hogwarts. First, and most obviously, was the fact that they would be missing out on their final year of primary school if they left at age eleven. The pureblood families didn’t mind so much, but Muggleborns were often faced with the hard decision about which was better - full primary Muggle education, or a proper start at their hidden wizard heritage? Most opted to leave the primary schools, which often put their parents in extremely difficult situations.But secondly, there was the additional factor that until 1603, the two countries had existed independent of each other. They had fought against each other at Culloden, Bannockburn and Flodden, assassination attempts had been made on both sides (primarily during performances of Macbeth, where wizards playing the witches, in an act of patriotic defiance, shot out Stunning spells at the audience and once, the watching courtiers), but the worst offence, in the Scot’s opinion, was after the Jacobite rebellion of 1745, when the English victors banned tartan, bagpipes, and Gaelic.Until then, no unified schools had been set up to teach young wizards and witches in Scotland - those lucky enough to be born into a family were taught in the home, while the few Muggleborns were killed in infancy - and, particularly in the Highlands, many spells were performed in Gaelic, the mother tongue of Scotland, there since Columba came over from Ireland to convert them to Christianity. Due to this tragic ban, many clever and innovative spells - including the early forms of basic incantations now used to fortify the soil before any magical plant is moved into it (not created by English wizards until the mid-seventeenth century), and the template for the smokeless blue flames so many lost travelers mistook for will o’ the wisps - were lost. Those few brave witches and wizards who kept Gaelic spells alive were found out by any number of English wizards and had their spells forcibly Obliviated from their minds.After the Second Wizarding War, Scottish wizards campaigned to be allowed to host their own wizarding school.They were declined.(written and submitted by theteaisaddictive. theteaisaddictive melds genuine history with magical worldbuilding to give us a sharp view of how we might read the British wizarding world, so rarely seen from this side in the books. Seeing people deepen the canon like this, personalize it, bring their own understanding to it, and do so in a well-written, thoughtful fashion like this, is one of my favorite things about running this blog. Thank you, theteaisaddictive!)
