    Imagine an alien sharing a cool human fact they just learned like ”hey guys did you know that the silvery markings on humans actually aren’t true stripes? They’re called stretch marks, they happen when the human is growing fast enough to actually outgrow their skin, which is apparently something that just fucking happens to almost all of them at some point of their life.”

    and another one is like ”wait so you’re saying humans don’t have stripes.”

    ”actually they do, but the stripes are invisible. There’s genetic code that’d give them stripes but they’re just the same colour as the rest of the skin. So the visible stripes are not real stripes and the real stripes are invisible.”

    ”I swear if you tell me one more weird human thing today I’m beating your ass.”

    The human in the room looks up and goes "Wait I have stripes?"

    "what do you mean cats can see them, but I can't?"

    what do you fucking mean cats can see them

    beenovel

    I WENT THROUGH THE SAME THOUGHT PROCESS

    MY CAT THINKS I HAVE STRIPES?!?!?!?

    messiambrandybuck

    NO NO ITS NOT "IT THINKS I HAVE THEM"

    BECAUSE WE DO APPARENTLY

    SO ITS ACTUALLY A VERY DISTRESSED "MY CAT THINKS I KNOW I HAVE STRIPES?!?!?!"

    AND I THINK THATS A BIT WORSE TO BE COMPLETELY HONEST

    beenovel

    MY CAT KNEW I HAD STRIPES BEFORE I DID?!?!?!?!?!?

    messiambrandybuck

    I DIDNT THINK OF THAT

    beenovel

    WELL I DID AND NOW I CANT UNTHINK IT

    apparently there's a disease where they become visable, and these are the most common kind??

    I NEED TO KNOW WHAT PATTERN OF STRIPES I HAVE AND THE CATS WON'T TELL ME

    They’re called Blaschko's lines!!!

    The reverse can also be true ... kinda.

    I remember reading somehwre the human eye can see more shades of green than any other colour. I just googled it and the human eye can see 10 Million different shades of green.

    So human could see stripes and patterns on, say, a reptillian race who maybe can’t see as many colours as we do, and think they’re just one boring shade of green.

    Human: We have stripes?! I wish I could see them. I hope they look like yours.

    Reptile Alien: Wait, I HAVE STRIPES!

    To my fellow gainers, feedees, and our potential feeders...

    So this post is likely to just vanish into the aether just because I’m gonna have an off-site link on it, but…

    I found a surprisingly good “shake” recipe that a few people have tried and gotten good results from, that I hope to try myself soon once I save up to stock up on the ingredients, simple as they are.

    https://twitter.com/softiesurprisee/status/1556760290917769223

    I hope this goes through properly, they have info on their own experiences with it using it on their feedees in the past, and I just thought folks would enjoy a new thing to try and see if it works for them too.

    In case people don’t trust random twitter links, here’s the shake itself:

    .75 cup Chocolate Syrup 1 Cup Heavy Cream 1 Cup Creamy PB 2 Cups Whole Milk

    Also, I just realized, this whole mix is almost a third of a gallon…

    I have one of those “gallon a day challenge” jugs…

    If I could train myself up enough, -and- have someone make three batches of this for me every day to fill the jug…

    Imagine me blowing up 3lbs a day… ~w~

    Apparently there's an evolutionary theory that the reason why Africa has so much wild big-ass megafauna while the big-ass megafauna on all the other continents went extinct is because they evolved right beside humans, and knew us well enough to not get hunted into extinction.

    So while everything from giant koalas to giant sloths barely had the time to think "what the fuck is that" before getting pierced by a spear and getting their bone marrow gently fed to babies and the toothless elderly, Africa had elephants who had all the time in the world to learn to tell apart human languages and teach the next generations of their herd which human sounds mean that this tribe won't hurt you, but humans who make this kind of sounds are a danger. And hippos learned to conclude "I think I'll fuck up this two-legged weird shit on sight."

    That’s true about African Elephants being able to distinguish between human languages, BTW.

    The original study they did on this is really cool, and it showed that not only can elephants distinguish languages, they respond differently depending on the general age and gender of the person spekaing. The researchers played recordings of different people speaking either Maasai or Kamba. All the speakers were saying the same thing, "Look, look over there, a group of elephants is coming."

    What they found is that when presented with voices speaking Kamba, the elephants were supremely unbothered. The Kamba are mostly farmers, many work for the park services, and they rarely present a danger to elephants.

    When presented with the voices of adult men speaking Maasai, the elephants drew close to each other and started investigating. The Maasai are largely cattle herders, and they sometimes come into conflict with elephants over water and grazing lands.

    However, the elephants did not seem nervous when presented with the voices of women or young boys speaking Maasai. They were aware that only humans with deep voices were a threat to them.

    They also seem to recognize that if humans are talking, they aren't necessarily a threat. Humans pursuing large game like elephants are stealth hunters. If you can hear them coming, they're probably not trying to hurt you.

    Anyway, elephants are amazing and one of the creatures high up on my list of "non-humans who are probably people."

    Reblogging for those fabulous details.

    I want to make a post about the situation in Sweden so that people know what's going on. I know everyone is talking about the queen dying and how that will destroy the UK financially and the like, and it was 9/11, but.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/sep/11/swedish-election-exit-polls-far-right

    The election here was yesterday and the preliminary results indicate that our second biggest party, SverigeDemokraterna, one rooted in nazism and fascism, will have a lot of influence over the country the next 4 years. They're one of Europe's biggest extreme right parties and the biggest in the world to be nazis through and through.

    Things are going to be hell for racial minorities, immigrants, refugees, disabled folks, Muslims, Jews, the LGBTQ+ (especially trans), women and people/families with low income.

    I'm not going to lie, I'm terrified. I'm exhausted. I've stayed up well past midnight on weekdays trying to get people to vote left and to make as much noise and make it known what the conservatives are doing to us and to get more engaged politically.

    But I'm working against the grain here, what with our newstations and general media gave SverigeDemokraterna so much attention (positive and negative). Plus, the other traditionally conservative parties also rallied HARD for them, to the point that they got bigger than them.

    This won't mean I'll give up and cower, I can't afford that. But it means that things are terrifying for those of us who are especially racial minorities. Because the nazis will get inspired by the results to get more active out there and cause so much damage.

    Sweden has excellent PR. You wouldn't know these things because they make sure to seem like a small and peaceful country that is the posterchild for equality. But it's far from it. And It's only going downhill from here. I could list all of the truly heinous things that have been going on here the past few years but we would be here forever.

    What I want to say though, is that Sweden has a truly revolting racism problem. Maybe not to the extent of the US, but it's not good. We were the forefathers of race biology after all. And that has ultimately paved the road for this election result.

    If you see this, please reblog and share. More people deserve to know the truth about the state of this country.

    criminal profiling is just astrology for cops

    utopians

    taking a forensics class and watching the professor explain one by one how criminal profiling, hair microscopy, and bite mark analysis are all pseudoscience responsible for ruining innocent lives, and how on top of that, fingerprint analysis, despite being significantly more reliable, is subjective and prone to contextual bias. and also bullet striation analysis has the same issues. and also bullet lead analysis doesn’t work. and also handwriting analysis has an error rate high enough to render it useless

    telltaletypist

    damn i'm almost starting to think the entire criminal justice system only exists to provide the illusion of protection while justifying state violence idk
