Dinosaurs, yeah!

Paul Sereno, UChicago’s devilishly handsome bad-boy of paleontology, shows how the bones of the Spinosaurus reveal it as one of the first semi-aquatic dinosaur, as well as the troubled saga of locating the bones in the first place, and the cultural impact of returning the fossils to their origin in Morocco.

Check it out!

GIF ANIMATION

YES A GIF OF SPINOSAURUS WALKING

See it is so weird

THE FUCK, SCIENCE?! YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT SHITTY SPINOSAURUS FROM THE LOST WORLD IN 1960, WHICH WAS JUST AN ALLIGATOR WITH A FIN GLUED ON ITS BACK

IS MORE SCIENTIFICALLY ACCURATE THAN THE ONE IN JURASSIC PARK 3?!

I don’t… I don’t know what I believe in anymore.

Kummakivi or “Strange Rock” can be found in the forests of Finland. These strange geological formation have, without any scientific explanation, wound up in a perplexing positions. The mystifying sight is that of a giant rock performing an unbelievable balancing act on a seemingly smooth, curved mound. 

Errr, there IS a scientific explanation, if you’d take thirty seconds to Google “balancing rocks”. It was probably caused by glaciation. Glaciers can move some pretty enormous chunks of rock, and when the glacier retreats, the rocks are left behind. Notice how the rock on the bottom has clearly been eroded; maybe there was water here before the glacier showed up, or maybe it was caught in the glacial meltwater. The rock above it has much harsher features and less erosion, so it may have been carved off a higher landform and carried to this point. In fact, a good geologist could trace the top rock to its source. When the glacier melted the two rocks just happened to be perfectly positioned for this to happen. Look, it happens in other places, too!

what’s really amazing to me is that people are so afraid of body hair on women that even in a shaving commercial they won’t show a hairy leg. they demonstrate the razor by shaving a hairless leg. they show their product being completely useless instead of showing leg hair. it’s just crazy

Skinning animals alive; it’s a myth

I mention a couple of the reasons in my video, but the basics are; animal cruelty results in a poorer quality skin. Whether it’s living conditions, or the method in which the animal is killed before skinning - better for the animal is also best for the skin. Looking at it in the most objective way, better welfare and killing the animal humanely before skinning means their skin and fur is worth more.

That video of the racoon dog being skinned? Staged. The seal cub being skinned alive? Also staged. Don’t believe every shocking video you’re linked on the internet.

Oh, good, you did it! I was hoping somebody would actually do a demo video!

It’s actually not tho.

In china(yes, that china) it actually happens quite a lot.

You see, it doesn’t matter what quality of skin they get out of it, for things like Walmart’s “Pony Skin” (typically the foals of nurse mares) or their inexpensive fur trim, not killing them first is simply a step removed, so thus an expense removed and they don’t care about the lower quality.

I’m sure no reputable company has ever done it, but beware the walmart fur, it likely came from a still breathing cat or foal.

Do you have evidence for the above? The only videos of live skinnings have been thoroughly debunked. And quality of hide aside, people still don’t want to get bitten or scratched by a still-living creature (never mind that people worldwide don’t like harming animals and want to make sure that the critter is very dead before cutting into the hide).

If something is ‘old as fuck’ then it’s about 1.2 billion years old because that’s when life evolved sexual reproduction.

 

However, if something is “old as balls” it’s only about 65 million years old, when placental mammals began to evolve proper testicles.
