Before I get into it, just know the pictures just serve as visual representations, not actual pictures
Okay so anyway, evidence for this theory is the following:
THE FACT THAT HUMANS ARE SO HAIRLESS:
Only two kind of habitats give rise to hairless animals, an aquatic one and a one below the ground (a naked mole rat for example)
.The suggestion that humans have become hairless to prevent overheating has been rendered false because hair can act like a defense against the sun.
This is why camels retain their fur even in the hot dessert environment.
OUR FAT CELLS
We have ten times the number of fat cells as expected in an animal our size. Only two types of animals have large fat cells: hibernating and aquatic ones.
In hibernating it’s seasonal fat, but in aquatic it’s all year round. It’s unreasonable to think that we evolved this feature in land because large fat pockets would have just slowed us down.
Primate babies are always born slender, but human babies start to develop fat even before birth.
WALKING ON TWO LEGS
So we’re the only mammals that have developed bipedalism. This is a surprise, because walking on 2 legs vs. walking on 4 legs is very disadvantageous. It’s slower, unstable, our organs are vulnerable to damage.
One theory is that if our habitat was flooded, we’d have to walk on two legs to keep our heads above the water.
The only animal who has ever evolved a pelvis like ours, the swamp ape, used this method.
We have conscious control over our breathing. Ever other land animal doesn’t. Mammals like dolphins and seals also conscious control because it tells them how deep they are going to dive and they can estimate how much air they need to inhale.
Our body is so wasteful of salt and water. Think of tears and our way of sweating. Other land mammals don’t have this. Water mammals do however.
Okay anyway I hope you learned something.

A local brony is outraged when he purchases an activity book for little girls and discovers that it was not made for grown men
oh my GOD
my jaw was on the floor this entire video
Oh man I’m crying here.
"you could say in a really childish way"
YEAH BECAUSE ITS ALL FOR KIDS.
"a lot of us bronies have taken the time to memorize these cutie marks"
good for you man.
"I thought it was really insulting to me"
here, let me get a jug to capture your white male tears.
This guy is such a dubass. I understand that a lot of “adults” love this show, myself included, but to call a coloring book for KIDS insulting and dumb because it doesn’t cater to your needs is really stupid. Of course they’re not going to put a lot of detail in those coloring books, they’re for kids. I know when I was younger and first started playing pokemon I loved the coloring / activity books, because it let me answer trivia about my favourite Pokemon and stuff. Am I going to go buy a Pokemon coloring book for kids and flip my shit because how dare they not mention how insanely complicated IVs and EVs are ? Shit, these books as clearly stated by the little sign that says “for ages 4 and up” or whatever are design for children, not grown people. If you love my little pony that’s perfectly fine. Sorry but memorizing the cutie marks is not a fucking achievement dude, since there are fucking clues to what basic shape it is in the pony name such as “Applejack” it has the word APPLE in the fucking name. Now I wonder why that is, maybe because it’s for kids ?!
Kids my sister baby sit love my little pony, they have dolls and all that, of course they don’t know the individual names they just call them “pony” which is why the names are so simplistic. They could have called twilight sparkle supernova or andromeda or whatever, but that would be way too complicated for kids of the age group it’s design for. Don’t be such a spoiled dick-head about shit like this, those books are fun for kids, they’re designed for kids, and that’s perfectly fine. Get someone to make a coloring book for you or make your own instead of bitching and whining and giving everyone else who likes the show a bad reputation.
A student studying Arabic was detained, arrested, and questioned for carrying ARABIC FLASHCARDS at the airport. He wanted to sue the TSA agents but the judge ruled that some of the words he was studying (like “bomb” and “target”) warranted “further investigation.” Whatever that means.
We still have government officials institutionally supporting Islamophobia and cultivating a fear of the middle east. Why criminalize a language? Associate language with violence, “do you know what language Bin Laden spoke?” Fuck that noise. American presidents, the elite in this country have slaughtered, killed, and supported the genocide of native americans, kidnapped and enslaved africans, stolen mexican land in the name of manifest destiny, put japanese and their descendants in concentration camps just because they looked asian and continue to institutionally oppress poc domestically and internationally. And they spoke english.
Dont come here telling me that arabic is a language of terrorists, because the biggest terrorists I know are english speaking white men. Goodbye.
This is pretty serious stuff. Bayer might be about to overturn the EC’s decision to ban the pesticides implicated in killing off the bees! If they win this case, it could be truly disastrous for both the bees and our own future. Please share, and please see the SumOfUs link (no affiliation) to make a donation to help the campaign to save the bees.
Early in 2013, the European Food Safety Authority stated that three specific neonicotinoid insecticides (imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam) pose an acute risk to honeybees, and the European Commission proposed a two-year ban on them.
This is due to go into effect on Dec 1st – and the ban was introduced because of mounting scientific evidence that these insecticides, produced by Syngenta and Bayer, have been the agents responsible for Colony Collapse Disorder – a major problem threatening both the bees and the safety of our own food supply!
However in a horrifying twist, and despite huge public opposition, Syngenta and Bayer are now suing the European Commission over their “right” to continue to produce the pesticides which have been implicated in the massive die-off of millions of bees. Yes, their “right”. Because as we know, corporations’ sole agenda is to make money. They cannot let a trivial thing like nature get in their way.
These insecticides continue to be produced and used on a vast scale in the USA and in other countries and are huge moneymakers for the chemical corporations…
This threw up a few red flags when some of the links led to wiki pages but I looked up the lawsuit and it seems to be legit. Bayer is trying to lift the ban on pesticides that have been linked to the death of millions of bees in Europe. This is, unquestionably, terrible enough on its own, because bees are amazing little insects and deserve all our love, but if all the bees in the world go extinct, human life as we know it will change drastically. Produce will virtually cease to exist. That is a big freaking deal.
In addition to the donation page listed above, SumOfUs also has a petition going around that is still in need of signatures to help stop this. And it needs to be stopped. We cannot risk losing any more bees.
Bees get a pretty bad rap, but honestly? The scary, stingy things you’re afraid of? Most likely wasps. Bees, particularly honeybees and bumblebees, are just these fluffy little cuddle balls that fly around and pollinate stuff. They won’t sting you unless you’re a direct threat to them, because if they sting you, they’ll die. Don’t be scared of bees. Be scared for bees.
I’ve done as much looking around as I can because I know Tumblr is a cesspool of misinformation, and this looks as legit as it gets. Please tell people, sign the petition, and donate if you can.
And in the meantime, if you’re a gardner, please try to encourage bees to come to your garden. You can use the tips listed here. There’s also some information about different kinds of bees you might run into, in case you’d like to learn more about bees and why they’re wonderful.
Thanks for reading, guys. Please share this.
REALLY FUCKING IMPORTANT, REALLY REALLY FUCJING IMPORTANT
