Wait, wait, wait, I have an amazing new idea. How about we fix the American school system.

one of my sisters friends got told last week that her natural hair was too blonde and that she needed to die it brown or she would get isolation for a week. Another of her friends had braids to make her Afro more manageable in the hot weather and to keep her head cooler and was told she had to take them out or cut them off.

What…the bloody hell

The Titanoboa, is a 48ft long snake dating from around 60-58million years ago. It had a rib cage 2ft wide, allowing it to eat whole crocodiles, and surrounding the ribcage were muscles so powerful that it could crush a rhinoTitanoboa was so big it couldn’t even spend long amounts of time on land, because the force of gravity acting on it would cause it to suffocate under its own weight.

I’m so glad they aren’t around

omg me too. I’m scared enough of 26 ft long anacondas. I’m so happy Megalodons, those giant sharks, aren’t alive either

Praise natural selection

I remember watching Walking with Beasts or something similar, or some British tv show about evolution

The subject was something like a 12 foot long water scorpion

I was so startled by its sudden appearance and narration that I yelped: “12 fucking feet?!?!  I’m fucking glad it’s extinct!” 

Dude, prehistory was home to some fucking TERRIFYING creatures. For some reason, everything back then was enormous and scary. Extinction doesn’t always have to be a bad thing!

And Poppy, what you saw was an arthropod known as Pterygotus (it was actually featured in Walking With Monsters). Not only was it as big (or maybe even bigger) than your average human, it had a stinger the size of a lightbulb. REALLY glad that bugger isn’t around anymore.

Also, Megalodon deserves to be mention again, because just hearing its name makes me want to never be submerged in water ever again.

GOD, I HATE THIS POST. HOW DO WE EVEN KNOW THAT SHIT ISN’T STILL AROUND? LURKING? EVOLVING? WE DON’T. WE DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT SHIT DOWN THERE. THE OCEAN IS A PRIMEVAL HELLSCAPE NIGHTMARE AND WE ALL JUST DIP OUR STUPID FRAGILE UNPROTECTED FETUS BODIES AROUND THE EDGES OF IT LIKE THAT’S NORMAL. FUCK THE OCEAN.

Dude megalodons are definately exinct. They could never survive in the deep ocean because it was too cold and there wouldnt be a food source large enough for it there. Just saying.

Also, that snake? Def a baby basilisk. Just saying.

My dad ran into an old friend of his today, and they were catching up...

  • Friend:

    "So how's your daughter doing?"

  • Dad:

    "Great! She's in college now, and she's doing really well. We're really proud of her."

  • Friend:

    "What's she studying?"

  • Dad:

    "Political Science."

  • Friend:

    "And does she have a boyfriend?"

  • Dad:

    "Actually, she came out as gay several years ago."

  • Friend:

    "You know that's... UNNATURAL... right??"

  • Dad:

    "No, I don't think so, actually. My daughter's sexual orientation is a biological reality. It makes biological sense to me. You know what doesn't make biological sense? Her damned cat walks on a leash. A LEASH. Just trots along on a leash like a damned dog. It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen in my life. THAT is what's unnatural."

  • Best dad ever
