European wolf (Canis lupus lupus) by Elke Becker

I love when the subspecies name is the same as the species.  It’s literally the same as saying “you know, a wolf wolf.”

Or a fox fox, a rat rat, a gorilla gorilla to name a few

Smart smart man…

Many classic horror icons and other disturbing creatures share common characteristics. Pale skin, dark, sunken eyes, elongated faces, sharp teeth, and the like. These images inspire horror and revulsion in many, and with good reason. The characteristics shared by these faces are imprinted in the human mind.
Many things frighten humans instinctively. The fear is natural, and does not need to be reinforced in order to terrify. The fears are species-wide, stemming from dark times in the past when lightning could mean the burning of your tree home, predators could be hiding in the dark, heights could make poor footing lethal, and a spider or snake bite could mean certain death.
The question you have to ask yourself is this:
What happened, deep in the hidden eras before history began, that could effect the entire human race so evenly as to give the entire species a deep, instinctual, and lasting fear of pale beings with dark, sunken eyes, razor sharp teeth, and elongated faces?

To be honest that last question frightened me more than the picture.

I can’t take this seriously because that is fucking Yolandi Visser.

Death.  Death happened.
When a body decays, its skin turns pale, the flesh around the eyes and cheeks grows shallow, and the gums and lips recede, creating the appearance of a grimace - the features that can be seen in the classical vampire or other ‘undead’ sorts of monsters.
As a general rule, it’s a bad idea to stick around dead bodies, because A: they spread disease, and B: whatever killed them might get you too.

NASA’s Starshade

This animation shows the prototype starshade, a giant structure designed to block the glare of stars so that future space telescopes can take pictures of planets.”

(That last GIF is a prototype,..it’s like we’re using the natural mechanics of flower petals for space..so awesome.)

One day this may be used to take the first picture of another Earth. 

Awesome…  I really don’t have anything profound to say here.  Just awesome…

seriously go vote for laverne cox in this like fuck does a cis man get more attention for a shit portrayal of transwomen than u know, an actual living transwoman

COME ON TUMBLR!

booooooooooooooooost

plus HES A FUCKING RAPIST

Oh cool, nice to know! Proof? Court record?

cool????? wtf

yeah also guess what??? theres no fucking court records because hes a fucking cis het white abled male!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! also hes famous!!!!!!!!!!

"proof" what the fuck as if people talking about him raping them isnt enough.

fuck off

So if people are talking about someone being a rapist, it means he’s a rapist, no proof required? Are you seriously out of your fucking mind?

and are you seriously implying that… “cis her white abled males” are exempt from laws?

If he were a woman I would have undestood, because women get much shorter sentences and lower conviction rates for the same crimes, especially when they rape someone, but even then “no proof required because she is a woman” isn’t enough of an argument.

Where’s your apology and retraction of the statement?

Agh… my brain hurts.

Amazingly, lots of people still believe that they are ”omnivores”, despite the fact that there are no scientific facts to support these claims, and this wrong classification is based on ”dietary habits” or ”observations” that humans generally eat a wide variety of plant and animal foods, not on anatomical design. Truth is, humans have nothing in common with true meat eaters.”True carnivores (and omnivores) salivate about the idea of eating whole prey animals when they see them. Humans do not. We’re interested in eating the body parts only because they’ve been removed from the original animal and processed, and because we grew up eating them, making it seem perfectly normal. It’s amazing how much of a disconnect we’ve been able to learn about the difference between animals and food. As GoVeg puts it:While carnivores take pleasure in killing animals and eating their raw flesh, any human who killed an animal with his or her bare hands and dug into the raw corpse would be considered deranged. Carnivorous animals are aroused by the scent of blood and the thrill of the chase. Most humans, on the other hand, are revolted by the sight of raw flesh and cannot tolerate hearing the screams of animals being ripped apart and killed. The bloody reality of eating animals is innately repulsive to us, more proof that we were not designed to eat meat.Ask yourself: When you see dead animals on the side of the road, are you tempted to stop for a snack? Does the sight of a dead bird make you salivate? Do you daydream about killing cows with your bare hands and eating them raw? If you answered “no” to all of these questions, congratulations—you’re a normal human herbivore—like it or not. Humans were simply not designed to eat meat. Humans lack both the physical characteristics of carnivores and the instinct that drives them to kill animals and devour their raw carcasses.http://michaelbluejay.com/veg/natural.html

Ok, for one?
Of fucking course we don’t share anything in common with “true meat eaters”. Are you blind? It’s because we’re not meat eaters. We’re fucking OMNIVORES.
Herbivores =/= Omnivores =/= Carnivores.
Each fucking subset has evolved differently from the rest and has evolutionary sets that fit their diet and their diet specifically. So while we don’t resemble “true meat eaters” because we were never Carnivores in the first place, we also don’t resemble “true Herbivores” either because we evolved past that. Want to know what we DO resemble though? OTHER FUCKING OMNIVORES.
Second: Actually, humans never ate raw meat in the first place and anyone who says so is a fucking idiot because archaeology has already disproven this. And if we did, it was for a VERY short period and not long enough to fuck with our evolution.
Fun fucking fact: The introduction of meat to our diet directly corresponds anthropologically with THE INVENTION OF COOKING AND ADDITION OF IT TO OUR LIFESTYLE. Therefore while we evolved to be Omnivores and eat meat as a small part of our diet, we never evolved to eat RAW meat.
Third? Jesus fucking Christ. We are not evolutionarily equipped to go out and catch prey with our bare hands.
Why? Because, again, WE DID NOT EVOLVE TO DO THAT.
So instead of needing to evolve the capability to run at fast speeds, long claws capable of rending flesh, and have a mouth full of 20 something sharp as fuck teeth? We developed tools. We developed cooking. We developed group hunting techniques. And since we’re still. Fucking. Here today instead of dying out like evolutionary failures are prone to doing? I’d say its worked out for us in the end pretty fucking well in the end so far.
We have a much higher brain capacity. We don’t NEED to and never did because we are more intelligent, have opposable thumbs and were capable of developing things to aid us before these things were evolutionarily required of us. We were, literally, never meant to or were in an evolutionary position that required us to catch our living prey like Carnivores did.
HUMANS HAVE BASICALLY BEEN ONE LONG STRAIN OF “FUCK EVOLUTION”.
Lastly I just want to touch on this ridiculous thing someone wrote on this post at some point: “Obv. I never said they didn’t. They even evolved to consume milk, well most have. But that doesn’t mean it was physically intended for our bodies originally. That’s the point of this whole post. Not what we’ve “evolved” to do but what our bodies and minds are hard wired for FROM THE VERY BEGINNING TO NOW. And it’s mostly about the mental state it would take that 90% of people don’t have”.
Like… Are you kidding? Please tell me you are fucking kidding. Do you know how evolution works in terms of diet? Food source becomes scarce while another becomes plentiful, species adapts to eat said food source… Or it dies. What we were not originally designer to eat CHANGES as new food sources evolve, and as we are required to adapt and evolve. The more food you adapt and evolve to eat, the more likely your species is to continue surviving as food sources come in and out of availability.
Literally. Diet depends on fucking evolution and evolution is widely dependent on diet in some circumstances. You cannot fucking remove them and separate them and pretend one isn’t necessary to have this fucking discussion. You cannot take a fucking issue about diet, claim we’re something we’re not, and completely erase the evolutionary portion of the fucking argument because IT IS A REQUIRED PORTION.
YOU ARE LITERALLY ATTEMPTING TO ERASE CONTEXT FROM A SITUATION THAT 100% REQUIRES. THE FUCKING. CONTEXT. OF EVOLUTION.
DO YOU FUCKERS EVEN KNOW HOW TO FUCKING SCIENCE?!
Yes, there very much is plenty of scientific evidence that Omnivore is a classification of diet. So is Fruitivore, Insectivore, Carnivore, Herbavore, and several other classifications.
The Omnivore dietary classification is seriously defined as an animal whose diet and lifestyle relies on obtaining protein and energy from both plant and animal sources- which may also include animal byproducts such as eggs and dairy, or things like insects, fungi and algae.
New flash: Humans are not the only fucking Omnivores and the classification is not based solely on the dietary needs of HUMANS, but the observation of SEVERAL OTHER ANIMALS.
Corvids are Omnivores.
Bears (save for a few species) are Omnivores.
Pigs are fucking Omnivores.
Badgers are Omnivores.
Foxes (some species) are Omnivores.
Chickens are fucking Omnivoers.
Here’s a nice fucking worksheet for you, and another one, and oh LOOK ANOTHER ONE.
Your science is fucking bunk.
Get the fuck out.

I totally thought this post was about how silly “raw diets” are. Then I was pissed off at the anti-meat bullshit. But then the reply to that crap… the science… the facts… it’s so beautiful.


Also, just because animals are too stupid to cook and season their food does not mean they are better than us. If lions could grill and slather a wildebeest in A1 sauce you know they would fucking do it.

Human adaptation to eating cooked food is actually the reason we have a vestigial appendix - in proto-hominids, it is believed to have housed the gut flora that aided in digestion of celluloid material (hard plant matter) and other raw, difficult to digest foods.  So, in other words, after the early hominids adapted to using fire (which, as stated, was millions of years ago, long before the species homo sapiens, we actually adapted towards a diet of primarily cooked food… and away from a primarily herbivorous diet.  If you observe chimpanzees, basically our closest relative, they have a significantly larger appendix, because they eat raw food, including such items as leaves and stems (though they prefer fruit).  Incidentally, they also eat meat, with their primary prey being small monkeys, though in comparatively smaller portions.
Gorillas have an even larger caecum (the part the appendix is attached to), with their diet that consists *primarily* of celluloid matter.  Though they will also eat insects.


As an aside, one of the most common mistakes I see regarding evolution is that it has a ‘plan’ or ‘intent’ for a species.  It doesn’t.  There is no conscious or mystical design for a species, it’s a more or less random, mindless process.  Basically, it throws adaptations at the wall and sometimes, if they happen to result in a organism with more descendants, they stick.
