So there has been a bit of “what if humans were the weird ones?” going around tumblr at the moment and Earth Day got me thinking. Earth is a wonky place, the axis tilts, the orbit wobbles, and the ground spews molten rock for goodness sakes. What if what makes humans weird is just our capacity to survive? What if all the other life bearing planets are these mild, Mediterranean climates with no seasons, no tectonic plates, and no intense weather? 

What if several species (including humans) land on a world and the humans are all “SCORE! Earth like world! Let’s get exploring before we get out competed!” And the planet starts offing the other aliens right and left, electric storms, hypothermia, tornadoes and the humans are just … there… counting seconds between flashes, having snowball fights, and just surviving. 

To paraphrase one of my favorite bits of a ‘humans are awesome’ fiction megapost: “you don’t know you’re from a Death World until you leave it.” For a ton of reasons, I really like the idea of Earth being Space Australia.

Earth being Space Australia Words cannot express how much I love these posts

Alien: “I’m sorry, what did you just say your comfortable temperature range is?”

Human: “Honestly we can tolerate anywhere from -40 to 50 Celcius, but we prefer the 0 to 30 range.”

Alien: “……. I’m sorry, did you just list temperatures below freezing?”

Human: “Yeah, but most of us prefer to throw on scarves or jackets at those temperatures it can be a bit nippy.” 

Other human: “Nah mate, I knew this guy in college who refused to wear anything past his knees and elbows until it was -20 at least.”

Human: “Heh. Yeah everybody knows someone like that.”

Alien: “……. And did you also say 50 Celcius? As in, half way to boiling?”

Human: “Eugh. Yes. It sucks, we sweat everywhere, and god help you if you touch a seatbelt buckle, but yes.” 

Alien: “……. We’ve got like 50 uninhabitable planets we think you might enjoy.” 

“You’re telling me that you have… settlements. On islands with active volcanism?”

“Well, yeah. I’m not about to tell Iceland and Hawaii how to live their lives. Actually, it’s kind of a tourist attraction.”

“What, the molten rock?”

“Well, yeah! It’s not every day you see a mountain spew out liquid rocks! The best one is Yellowstone, though. All these hot springs and geysers from the supervolcano–”

“You ACTIVELY SEEK OUT ACTIVE SUPERVOLCANOES?”

“Shit, man, we swim in the groundwater near them.”

Sounds like the “Damned” trilogy by Alan Dean Foster.

“And you say the poles of your world would get as low as negative one hundred with wind chill?” 

“Yup, with blizzards you cant see through every other day just about.”

“Amazing! when did you manage to send drones that could survive such temperatures?”

“… well, actually…”

“… what?”

“…we kinda……. sent……….. people…..”

“…”

“…”

“…what?”

“we sent-”

“no yeah I heard you I just- what? You sent… HUMANS… to a place one hundred degrees below freezing?”

“y-yeah”

“and they didn’t… die?”

“Well the first few did”

“PEOPLE DIED OF THE COLD AND YOUR SOLUTION WAS TO SEND MORE PEOPLE???!?!?!?”

My new favorite Humans are Weird quote

“PEOPLE DIED OF THE COLD AND YOUR SOLUTION WAS TO SEND MORE PEOPLE?”

aka The History of Russia

aka Arctic Exploration

aka The History of Alaska

‘But surely you have records of volcanic activity doing tremendous damage to human settlements.’

‘Yep.  Pompeii is legendary.  Entire cities went. Towns buried under lava, peoples’ brains boiled in the first rush of heat, loads more killed by falling pumice.’

‘ah, good, they learned their lesson and didn’t build there again.’

‘…well…’

‘Are you seriously telling me this volcano is legendary for killing several urban conurbations and you built on top of it AGAIN?’

‘In our defence it hasn’t actually done it since.’ 

‘What about earthquake-prone areas? Tell me you’re at least vaguely sensible about those.’

‘Oh yeah.  After the first major earthquake that flattens a city, we build them better.’

I live on both Earth Australia and Sace Australia.

Aliens and monsters fascinated by humans will never stop being a thing for me

These are my favorite posts.

Alien - Ok, so tell me about war.

Human - Ok - lists everything from the 300 Spartans to possible WW3 - 

Alien - So who are these people fighting in a square and a caged circle?

Human - Those are sports fighters.

Alien - You fight each other for fun?

Human - Yes.

Alien - WHEN YOU HAVE ALL THESE WARS!? THAT WOULD EXPLAIN IT!

Human - Well there’s the geneva convention. - explains what it is -

Alien - YOU BANNED WEAPONS OF WAR BECAUSE THEY WERE TOO EFFECTIVE!?

Human - It’s like cheating.

Alien - AT WAR!?!? WHERE YOU ACTIVE GOAL IS TO KILL EACH OTHER!? YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT CHEATING!?

Human -…………………..

Alien - What?

Human - Nothing.

Alien - No, what? There’s something else isn’t there?

Human - Nukes are not technically banned under the convention.

Human: All this celebration needs is some booze

Alien: some what now?

Human: Booze. Alcoholic drinks.

Alien: What is alcohol? 

Human: Ethanol.  C2H6O

Alien: wait, isn’t that the stuff your people use as disinfectant?

Human: yup.

Alien: and a fuel additive?

Human: yup.

Alien: Isn’t that a poison!?

Human: well yeah, but it’s watered down when we drink it.

Alien: !?

THIS IS MY FAVORITE SHIT

So what about the fact that humans can take so much abuse to the body and miraculously survive

Alien: So let me just review: You have records of people surviving fatal wounds commonly…

Human: Uh-huh.

Alien: And some of these stories include stab wounds to the brain…

Human: Oh, yeah, all the time.

Alien:….and then…surviving and even improving from crippling injuries or brain damage…

Human: Those are some of the truly strong ones, that.

Alien: Yes…indeed…………………………………………………

Human: What? What is it?

Alien: It’s just…..well………we had heard….rumors….

Human: Of?

Alien: It’s nothing. They’re false, they must be! Humans coming back from the dead–it’s funny really!

Human: o-o……………..

Alien: You must be joking.

Human: UM………WELL…….

Alien: TELL ME YOU’RE JOKING. PLEASE.

Human: *patting the alien sympathetically* I meanwe have to electrocute them back usually but I’m…sorry?

Alien: *slams head on table. Done*

So I was updating my Nintendo profile now that I got a Switch and I was looking through and realized I hadn’t selected a province.


Ah yes. The two great and only Canadian provinces. Quebec and Not Quebec.

The Two Genders, Quebec and Not Quebec.

That’s because Québec has a few more restrictive laws, different from the rest of Canada. That’s why the province is sometimes excluded from country-wide contests and such.

Flint still doesn’t have clean water. This is very important.

Reminder there is no safe level of lead, no matter what the studies and findings may say.

all I ask for in the new star wars films is leia with a lightsaber

I don’t think they give non-force sensitives lightsabers, but I also don’t think they’ve established Leia as force sensitive or not, so who knows

leia is anakin’s daughter. if she’s not force sensitive, I’ll eat my shoe.

The heck do you mean “they haven’t established Leia as Force-sensitive?”

Have you not seen Empire Strikes Back? The movie where her Force-sense was pinging every five minutes? Or in Return of the Jedi: “The Force is strong in my family. I have it. My father has it. My sister has it.” “In time, you’ll learn to use that power too.”

Leia is just as much a basket of potential-Jedi as Luke is.

“No, there is another.” HOW DID YOU MISS THAT

Because girl.

“In Expanded Universe materials set after Return of the Jedi, Leia is portrayed as a founding member of the New Republic. Although most of her life is devoted to such matters of state, she engages in limited study of the Jedi arts, with Luke as her teacher. Notably, she wields a blue lightsaber that she built herself.” [x]

fake geek boys

Even the dang trailer SPELLS “My sister has it”

“I’m sure Luke wasn’t on that thing when it blew…”
“He wasn’t. I can feel it.”

fake geek boys

this post is golden

reblogging cause one of my followers tried to tell me Leia isn’t force sensitive 

There it is. The first Fake Geek Boys post I ever loved.

What kind of dingus doesn’t think Leia isn’t a Magic Space Laser Queen.

LEIA IS FORCE SENSITIVE.

NOW,

GIVE HER A LIGHTSABER

Every fat activist says that ‘not everyone can lose weight’.

Amber Rachdi was 600 lbs. 600 freaking lbs. See those legs; yea that’s lymphedema that was caused by her morbid obesity. 

And now look at her. Imagine her life if fat acceptance found her before the health intervention did. 

Yes.

Love ya, Babe! You accomplish miracles by force of will, which is very difficult for many brought up on the I-want-it-now philosophy. Bravo!

AMBER! I AM SO PROUD OF YOU WHOEVER YOU ARE! This is so inspiring and amazing. Good for you!

You keep it up!

WOW now this is motivating 

WOW. Go Amber! You can see how happy she is and how much better she feels now, just look at that glow in her face.

those companies literally are only banning terry richardson because they don’t want the bad press from working with him not because they actually care about the allegations cuz there’s no way they didn’t know especially since it’s been a thing for YEARS that he’s manipulated and abused a lot of young women
