This was my cry thing when I was young. Ranger Rick and his team try so hard to save nature, but Rick got to this loon too late. It was because the loon swallowed a sinker made of lead, poisoning and killing it.



Incidentally I think showing animals dying or other consequences is the best way to spur someone to action. Especially if it's on the Discovery channel so you get to know the animal and it's family and life before it bites the dust. To my knowledge it's the only time the magazine went this far. There was another time where Scarlett was about to get run over by a truck (see next issue to find out what happens, kids!), which led to a delightful sarcastic online article about how manipulative it was.

Totally totally lost at coolkid's pic. "Jurassic Bark" was one of a few Futurama episodes I hadn't seen. So I watched it. And I cried. I think it got some imaginary awards for making TV critics cry. Forget it being sad by association of its episode, it's sad just by itself.

Cry some more!

Lost again. This is like Scrubs sad worthy. Speaking of Scrubs, this will cheer you back up.

A little backstory on that girl before she started school reveals that her mom had been suffering from a lung tumor that eventually develops into full on cancer. She spends approximately 7 months visiting a doctor, and doing everything she could to slow the infection down. Eventually her treatment gets too expensive to keep paying (she says that one month of treatment could feed the girl for an entire year) and she checks out of the hospital, deciding to live out the rest of her time with her daughter at home. The night before the girl starts school, her mom succumbs to the cancer, and her daughter tries to finish that 1000 paper crane challenge before that to save her, ultimately running out of time for both

I just collapse into a mess of tears every time I watch this episode.
To those that don't watch the show, the character pictured, the Ice King, is a princess kidnapping (yet more and more sympathetically portrayed over time) maniac who has a crown that gives him magical ice powers. It was revealed later on in the series that the crown actually also keeps him immortal while chipping away at his sanity, and that he was once a perfectly sane man who drove his lover away with his increasingly erratic behavior. He lived through a nuclear apocalypse (The show is set a long amount of time after said apocalypse, I believe around a few thousand or so years) and, before he was fully transformed into his current state, had helped one of the show's other characters, Marceline, through the post-apocalyptic landscape not long after the war, when she was still a child and could not fend for herself from the weird mutated monsters attacking. (Marceline is also immortal, in a teenaged body and seemingly mind too, as she became a vampire at some point or was possibly born as a vampire) The episode which this title card belongs to centers on Marceline's desperate (and ultimately failed) attempts to try and bring back the Ice King's memories of when he was sane and still known by his real name, Simon. What really helps drive it home is that she's had to watch him lose his memory and mind and go more and more crazy as the show goes on, yet she used to see him as her father figure and it appears from this episode that he may never gain any recollection of his past life, real name, or former personality, even as he directly stares at artifacts from his past. There's this really sad musical sequence towards the end that just destroys me every time I see it, but every time I try to look for it on YouTube, I either find a cover version of it or it's shortly taken down afterwards. So take me posting this as a bit of inspiration to you to try and watch the full episode somewhere on the internet or whatever now that you have some backstory on it. I-if you want to...


Also, that image that didn't do anything to me when I was younger? Didn't cry, but it definitely gave me feels. I'm a softie now, aren't I?
