This image is way funnier considering that this is Egypt and this snow was the first snow they got in 112 years.

this man has waited 112 years to SLAM DUNK that snowball on this man’s head

this is giving me such sibling vibes

Language, opposable thumbs, and erect posture—those are the three keys to the kingdom: Doug Jones: Four Legs Good, Two Legs Better: "With Ardipithecus Radius (about 4.5 million years ago) we have the strongest evidence so far that hominins have adopted bipedalism.... Even... she had a somewhat diverging big toe, and arms and hands well-adapted for suspension, suggesting she was bipedal on the ground, but still spent a lot of time in trees.... Bipedalism allowed ancestral dinosaurs to overcome the tight coupling of locomotion and respiration that prevents sprawling lizards from breathing while they run. But human bipedalism, with no counterbalancing tail, is different. As far as we know it evolved only once... ...Human bipedalism is... related to tradeoffs in locomotion.... Other great apes pay a big price for being the largest animals well-adapted for moving around under and among branches: great ape locomotion on the ground is particularly inefficient. Chimpanzees spend several times as much energy knuckle-walking on all fours as you would expect based on comparisons to similar sized quadrupedal mammals.... Humans by contrast take a little less energy to walk around than a same-size four-legged mammal.... And a study that came out just last year shows that the same was true of Ardipithecus: she was an efficient bipedal walker.... That said, efficiency isn’t everything. Human beings are lousy at sprinting–try outsprinting your dog, or a squirrel.... It may be that bipedalism evolved initially in an environment where predation pressure wasn’t very intense, and the need for speed was not as great. This argument has been made for Oreopithecus, living on an island in the Mediterranean. Perhaps Graecopithecus initially enjoyed a similar isolation, and freedom from predation, associated in some way with the drying and flooding of the Mediterranean... #noted

Suicide d'Arnaud Dubus, correspondant à Bangkok, symptôme d'une profession à l'agonie

Suicide d’Arnaud Dubus, correspondant à Bangkok, symptôme d’une profession à l’agonie

Je relaie cette tribune de la branche thaïlandaise de l’Union de la presse francophone (UPF), qui vient de perdre un de ses piliers, miné par la précarité du métier. L’ensemble de ses collègues et amis s’associe à la peine de sa famille et espère que sa contribution inestimable au journalisme en Asie du sud-est ne sera pas oubliée. Source : Notes de terrain

new genre concept: soft apocalypse

the world as we know it has ended and mother nature starts taking back what’s hers. there are no zombies or cannibals or murderous bandits. the most valued members of the community are those who know how to garden and farm, sew and weave, treat wounds, work wood or build with bricks, cook from scratch. 

people bond together to begin rebuilding instead of killing each other. everyone teaches each other whatever they do know and works together to figure out the stuff none of them know. books become incredibly valued resources because they’re often the only way to learn critical information. if someone is elderly, disabled, or otherwise unable to work at the same level as most of the community, they’re taken care of by the others, not told any sort of “survival of the fittest” bs.

as the generations ware on, communities begin expanding into small cities. some of the settlements even find ways to repurpose solar or wind power on a small scale and have electricity in some of their buildings. storytellers wander the countryside telling tales of the old world in return for some hot stew or a place to rest for the night, and the mythos of the new world start to incorporate elements of the past. the only thing that remains constant is that humans survive, and they do it by working together.
