Aw man. Not only did Sir Hawkins develop some amazing theories about the big bang theory, he was ALSO on the tv show Big Bang Theory. RIP to one of the greatest minds since Einstein dropped relativity theory on us.
Just go see it.
It really blew my mind away. Mad spoilers ahead if you Continue reading
Well, it was a movie. I guess, kinda a good one? (yeah, a good one. go see it) Here’s where the spoilers start, so click or go no further! [Like for real, don’t go further cuz I’ll be mentioning stuff that if you haven’t see the movie, you’ll be mad/sad/glad/rad]
So what if humans had tails? Well, I did very little research and found out we’d be weird.
I’d like to think it’d be cooler if your tail was fuzzy like cat and dog tails like this!
But then I saw this. and decided to leave the internet alone for a couple days.
And, have a good day.
The animal of the day is the Gannet. (Did you know: The Gannet is the largest sea bird in the Atlantic, and 2nd largest in the world [to the albatross]. They are known for their impressive diving and underwater swimming abilities.
The have some cool adaptations that help them swim underwater. First of all, they have no external nostrils (WHAT?!), their nostrils are INSIDE their mouths! So when they dive, they just have to keep their trap shut.
Second, and this is weird, they have air sacs in their face and chests that act like bubble wrap protecting them as they slam into the water at high speeds!
The gannet’s supposed capacity for eating large quantities of fish has led to “gannet” becoming a disapproving description of somebody who eats excessively, similar to “glutton”.
There are many other differences most having to do with differences in physical anatomy [a big difference is how their digestive systems are setup]. Found in the Caribbean and in South America, it is much smaller than wild pigs in the America’s.
