Fuck pandas man.
and insist on just eating bamboo, which they have to do constantly to get enough nutrients and shit out of it to stay alive.
Seriously, let em die out.
they're sooooo cuuuuuttteeee !!! X^_^X
by a load of porcelain? Fuck off with your pots.
I don't really have an opinion on Darwinian selection and special extinctions.
there are types of cat in every single climate, every single country, not to mention the sheer number of variations due to their rampant, indiscriminant fucking.
domestic cats actually had no evolutionary cause to befriend humans, they were perfectly able to provide for themselves. but they're just so smart they saw a good thing in us and took the bonus.
CATS DESERVE THEIR PLACE.
and yeah i know what's comin next pussy
My workmate got stung about 4 times in one go today by an absolute bastard of a wasp. The dangers of bricklaying.
someone's got a crush on their 'workmate'
sometimes they forget they can't fly and climb up trees and jump out and die.
Their defence mechanism is to stand stock still, apparently. Useless.
end of thread
Why would you want to get rid of bees? Easily the most awesome insect and they hardly ever sting unless you really piss them off or go sticking your hand in their nest or something.
rarely sting unless provoked heavily and even then it's not really very painful.
Asian giant hornets can get to fuck though, man. They are terrifying. And there's a type of killer bee that were genetically engineered by mistake to be absolutely awful, but let's just bypass that.
You want to know what's cool about bees?
Check out the section on how Japanese honey bees defeat Asian giant hornets here:
Also check out how bees' knees work:
so ENOUGH OF THIS BEES SHOULD BE EXTINCT BULLSHIT, MAN
animals that nature would have eradicated long ago had man not intervened?
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels
All at the wrong end of a genetic cul-de-sac, god love their squishy little faces.
Let 90% of the purebreds examples of the breed die out and outcross the remaining 10% with rugged specimens from other breeds to improve the genepool.
I don't mind moths but dont understand how they are so successful.
the sorry stat of those dog breeds is 100% man's fault. Nature wouldn't give a meat-eater an undershot jaw and squashed face or birth canal narrower than the head of the offspring.
That's us what did that.
as a result of the proliferation of artificial light fucking them up
companion dogs are probably man's greatest success
Dogs are about my favourite thing in the world, I'm a massive, massive fan.
But we've fucked them up.
We were bang on with the domestication idea, then the training idea, then we got a bit hung up on looks and started tinkering and it all went wrong.
I can't find it, but there's a picture of a Pug from the 19th Century somewhere online. It's lean, muscular and looks extremely fit. Average life-span back then was about 18 years too.
that dogs are the only species that have that much variety within them, domesticate and breed any other animal like that and you dont get as nearly as much extremes in differences, found it quite interesting
I hope im not one of those people who types thats in the wrong place and then it moves back to the right place and I look stupid for not just assuming it was dis temporarily messing up
Slow defenceless lumps of meat that can be easily captured and consumed by anything larger than they are. The fact that there are still wild Guinea pigs in the world is a strong argument against natural selection.
I'll put an 'I don't actually think this' disclaimer on the bottom. Sarcasm, internet etc.
but I decided to pretend to take it at face value for comic effect.
Next time I make any flippant comment upon pretending not to register evident sarcasm I'll BLAH BLAH BLAH
they are as evolved as we are.
but I'm surprised at the claim that they actually exist in the wild. Afaik they're a completely domesticated species. They're well fragile and I wouldn't expect them to last five minutes trying to fend for themselves.
Moths are awesome.
Check out this dude who flew into my kitchen recently - I took a few pictures before ushering him back outside:
and this little dude who I found in a nature reserve:
People who don't like moths are very silly.
Especially the first one. I have a newfound appreciation for the cuteness of moths now.
When they get swatted, why do they turn into dust? Are they vampires?
You have to make a Buffy style quip every time you stake one.
i mean, what the fuck? i guess there's a lot of ants to eat. but look at them, what the fuck?
no use, total pest, constantly poisoned/pelleted/salted
further up the page people were on about dogs. certain dogs earned their place (alsations, labradors, jack russells, etc and so forth) and i love them. but some are just...eugh.
almost seems like cheating
they might encounter a large extinction event (like what happened about 70 million yrs ago)......will they be able to decipher that the 'event' was human global society.....or will they just associate it with it being the geological 'plastic age'
