If I could attend a Yule Ball, I would wear something like this. I love the design.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone!
Note: Someone shared it with me from Deviantart but I don’t know who is the artist, let me know so I can give her credit.
"No homo" cries the team at the dig site. The head archaeologist sinks to his knees, sobbing. He has dedicated his entire career to the pursuit of homo habilis, an important part of the hominid evolutionary line. All his work led up to this archaeological dig site. But now, his whole life has been for nothing. There is no homo….there is only Australopithecus.
I read this to a group of archaeologists and they completely lost their shit
We see this as a normal thing in the western civilization, we are considered to be very clean and sanitary compared to our past and some other cultures… Not prefect but not so dirty.
But in the future, maybe 50 years tops, somebody that sees this picture will say we lived in a filthy environment. That is me assuming we keep developing instead of facing apocalypse or regression.
Follower digitalflora sent in this nifty article that briefly outlines a culture with no system for counting. “Cognitive anumerancy” (or coming from a culture with no system of counting) is surprisingly common. And while it may seem like it would make day to day living impossible, remember the next time you see a pile of something how most of our thinking goes from one, to maybe three, then seven, then “a bunch,” “a lot,” and “too many” (interesting aside: strings of seven numbers is a mental limit is actually built into our brain! Which isn’t to say we can’t count higher, things just get more complicated after that).
Thanks digitalflora! And if anyone has other suggestions, questions, or cool finds please, send them in!
