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.

Anonymous asked:

in your latula post, when you say "guilt and self-doubt because of boys and blah", are you talking about guilt and self-doubt that's like. "gosh, i'm so broken and miserable! i'll never be good enough for boy x!" with the later "i'm so lucky boy x is gracious enough to want me!" or similar? when i try to write her i try to make the self-doubt stem from herself, with boys only playing a role in the generic "fuck i'm a mess how does anyone like me", but i'm worried that's too much now. idk.

i am of the same mind as you. i think latula’s guilt and self-doubt are because she’s insecure with how she appears to EVERYBODY. not just boys—trolls don’t have a concept of heterosexuality, for one thing, so she’d almost certainly be just as self-conscious around Meulin or Porrim as she is around Kankri or any other dude, except maybe Mituna.

she’s the knight of mind, but maybe she can’t see herself clearly. maybe she thinks she’s nothing compared to others and so she tries too hard. maybe she’s crippled by self doubt when she isn’t playing a role. sgrub might have given her the Mind aspect to encourage her to overcome that, but their session failed and she got stuck.

the fandom kind of ignores other reasons for her act a lot of the time, and i think it springs from that dumb het romance trope where a girl is only half a person until the right boy comes along to make her love herself (because the boy loves her). why do people bother to write a young woman’s story if they’re just gonna make the whole thing revolve around the guy? and latula gives every indication of being totally content with mituna. at no point does she ever indicate unrest or romantic interest in any other person. she’s outright awkward about kankri’s bungled flirting attempt. but if she’s so happy, why does she still pretend to be someone she isn’t? “oh, must be the wrong boy!”  is the hollywood answer. that’s weak. women have problems that aren’t about around men. trolls have problems that aren’t about quadrants. i want to encourage those stories.

Now I’m starting to wonder if that’s a knight trait.  Doing a bunch of fronting with a carefully cultivated persona because you aren’t comfortable or in touch with yourself as an actual person.  See also: Nubs McShoutsalot and Ironicallycool Coolirony kid.

100% my belief. it’s too perfect to not have been planned this way. i want to hug them all.

variablejabberwocky just cracked the goddamn case

holy crap it’s so obvious now they’ve pointed it out
