If you think that I get worked up over nothing, or I only go after “popufurs”, consider the fact that I go after other people, too; a person who decided their generic rat species needed to be “closed”, and another person that was tracing and selling it as a commission, all within the last month or so
I call bullshit, wherever, whenever, from whoever.
I get that no one wants to acknowledge their favourite artist fucked up because they make pretty art and cute fursuits. I know that you would rather not deal with this.
But the fact remains.
They molested a dog on camera. They abused several animals, I don’t care if they broke the law or not, what this person did is wrong, and they got away with it, which is even worse. This isn’t some secret, this isn’t a rumour, it happened, whether anyone wants to admit it or not. Even though we’ve talked about it before, you just pushed it under the rug. Again.
If you can’t see why bestiality is wrong, you need help. Normalising and marginalising things like rape and abuse, both to people and animals is something that you as a fandom need to address, not defend, when we see it happening. No matter who does it.
You do realise that when you buy from javacostumes/wild—-life, (or anyone else that thinks this is okay) or you reblog/post their pictures, you are supporting this kind of behaviour.
Of course, if you suck enough dick, and enough people watch you, people will turn a blind eye, and you can keep on doing what you’re doing.
World’s languages traced back to single African mother tongue: scientists.
New Zealand researchers have traced every human language — from English to Mandarin — back to an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
Scientists say they have traced the world’s 6,000 modern languages — from English to Mandarin — back to a single “mother tongue,” an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
New research, published in the journal Science, suggests this single ancient language resulted in human civilization — a Diaspora — as well as advances in art and hunting tool technology, and laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures.
The research, by Quentin Atkinson from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, also found that speech evolved far earlier than previously thought. And the findings implied, though did not prove, that modern language originated only once, an issue of controversy among linguists, according to the New York Times.
Before Atkinson came up with the evidence for a single African origin of language, some scientists had argued that language evolved independently in different parts of the world.
Atkinson found that the first populations migrating from Africa laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures by taking their single language with them. “It was the catalyst that spurred the human expansion that we all are a product of,” Atkinson said, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Atkinson traced the number distinct sounds, or phonemes — consonants, vowels and tones — in 504 world languages, finding compelling evidence that they can be traced back to a long-forgotten dialect spoken by our Stone Age ancestors, according to the Daily Mail.
Atkinson also hypothesized that languages with the most sounds would be the oldest, while those spoken by smaller breakaway groups would utilize fewer sounds as variation and complexity diminished.
The study found that some of the click-using languages of Africa have more than 100 phonemes, or sounds, whereas Hawaiian, toward the far end of the human migration route out of Africa, has only 13, the Times reported. English has about 45 phonemes.
The phoneme pattern mirrors the pattern of human genetic diversity as humans spread across the globe from sub-Saharan Africa around 70,000 years ago.
This gives me LIFE from people who insist all languages (ALL no matter what) derive from latin bases.
Reblogging this for three reasons:
1) It’s awesome and worth knowing
2) It makes sense when you think about, you know, the whole history of human development (from a NOT white supremacist perspective at least)
3) To add that if anyone ever tries to say that all languages are derived from Latin [insert choked sound of disbelief and anger] you can inform their ignorant (probably racist) asses of this: Latin, as far as languages go, is an INFANT. It’s part of a subset of Indo-European languages and MOTHERFUCKER EVEN ENGLISH ISN’T ONE OF ITS DERIVATIVES. (French, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, and Portuguese are, as well as lots of their related languages and dialects, that’s it.) Latin isn’t even remotely old enough to be a mother language. It’s like saying alpacas were the original dinosaurs or some bullshit.
HUH! You dont FUCKING SAY?
WILL YOU LOOK THE FUCK AT THAT!
Not surprising, but this is cool information!
There are SERIOUSLY people who think all languages derive from Latin?
This is so cool
This isn’t a new idea, either — we were discussing it in 1985 actively. The key is that the research has come up with evidence of it, which shifts it from conjecture to theory.
The data isn’t absolute, mind you, but there’s not enough data suggesting otherwise, and this stuff is pretty solid.
But it does give new meaning to the notion of the Tower of Babel, and that means the location of it is likely not where most folks think it would be…
Do not underestimate the Rift Valley.
Y’all believe it now?
You’re fucking kidding me right?
People are suffering to Ebola and America had a way to potentially cure it
AND THEY REFUSE A FUCKING REQUEST?
Does saving lives not mean anything to anyone anymore?
I fucking cant
Who’s really surprised? AMERICA isn’t shit & never will be.
They said it costing too much was part of the issue but I haven’t seen the government have any issue with the billions of dollars they constantly give Israel to do any mother fucking thing they please.
Seriously?! the US ain’t shit
Didn’t they give it to a Spanish patient today
It’s fucking true. They said no to Nigeria. But then ship it right the fuck out to Spain for one patient.
It is so hard to love a country that does not value you/people who look like you.
