Brains, College, and Comfortable: arcticfoxbear Humans Are Weird So there has been a bit of what if humans were the weird ones?" going around tumbir at the moment and Earth Day got me thinking Earth is a wonky place, the axis tits, the orbit wobbles, and the ground spews molten rock for goodness sakes. What it 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 SCOREI Earth like worldl Lets get exploring before we get out competear And the planet starts offing the other aliens right and et, electrid storms, hypothermia, tornadoes and the humans are just there. counting seconds between riashes, 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 Australa crazy-pages Alen: "Tm sorry what did you just say your comfortable temperature range is? Human-H0ถesty we can tolerate anywhere from-40 to 50 Celcius but we prefer the 0 to 30 range AlienI'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 bt 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 Alilen And did you also say 50 Celcius? As in, hair way to bolling?" Human: Eugh Yes it sucks, we sweat everywhere, and god helip you it you Yeah everybody knows someone like that touch a seatbelt buckle, but yes Aen We've got like 50 uninhabitable planets we think you might enjoy val tashoth Youre telling me that you have. settiements On islands with active volcanism? well yeah i'm not about to tell Iceland and Hawail how to live their lives Actually, it's kind of a tourist attraction What, the moften rock? Well yeahl It's not every day you see a mountain spew out iquid rocks! The best one is Yelowstone, though All these hot springs and geysers from the YOU ACTIVELY SEEK OUT ACTIVE SUPERVOLCANOES? Shit, man, we swim in the groundwater near them. Sounds like the "Damned trlogy by Alan Dean Foster the-grand author And you say the poles of your world would get as low as negative one hundred with wind chit? Yup, with blizzards you cant see through every other day just about Amazingl when did you manage to send drones that could survive such temperatures? well, actually what? ..what?" we sent no yeah I heard you I just- what? You sent.. HUMANS. to a place one hundred degrees below treezing? y-yeah and they didnt. die? Well the first few did PEOPLE DIED OF THE COLD AND YOUR SOLUTION WAS TO SEND MORE PEOPLE32212121 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 kißed by falling ah, good, they learned their lesson and didn't build there again wel Are you serniously telling me this volcano is legendary for kiling 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 sensibile about those Oh yeah After the first major earthquake that flattens a city, we budd them better 159.505 notes Humans are wierd

Bad, cnn.com, and Fall: The Independent @Independent Here's what you should do in the event of a nuclear attack ind.pn/ 2piOhjW 8/9/17, 3:19 PM NBC News @NBCNews NBC NEWS "Don't run. Get inside". What experts say to do in case of a nuclear attack nbcnews.to/2VNWTmt 8/9/17, 9:30 AM CN CNN @CNN Hawaii is preparing in case of a North Korea attack. Experts say you have about 15 min. to take cover after a launch cnn.it/2upXdZ9 pagan-hulse: shit-editor: magic-owl: lime-vodkaaa: goodshinyhunter: tripprophet: weavemama: ladies and gentlemen we have officially reached the “in case a nuclear attack happens” phase……. [x] This shit is wild. There should be an amber alert or something to warn us, hopefully. But if you’re so close to the blast that the entire outside flashes white your first priority is to get underneath the blastwave any way you can. After that you have 2 options: drive away or protect yourself from the radiation. Option one is tough because literally everybody else is going to want to do this, and you could get stuck right in the fallout. And lemme tell you, if you’re stuck out there when the ashes first fall for more than 15 minutes, you’re dead. Radiation poisoning. Option two is harder, but has a better success rate. Get underground. Most houses have a crawlspace, but in this bad time just saw a fucking hole in your floor. Put table over hole. Pack some large containers (like tubs), with dirt, tight, and stack them on your table or wherever you’re going to be directly underneath. you need 36 inches if dirt to be protected from the radiation poisoning. You could preemptively buy lead and stick that in a container with a lot of serface area, i forget how many inches you need vertically. How ever much serface area the dirt/metal/lead covers is how much you and your party will be able to move around. As long as there’s enough inches vertically you’ll be good so long as you stay under it. You gotta stay under there for at least 2 weeks, 3 to be sure. Also, if you can see the mushroom cloud, stick your arm out as far as you can. Do a thumbs-up and close one eye. If your thumb is bigger than the cloud, you are safe. If the cloud is bigger or the same size as your thumb, then that means you are in the radiation zone and should evacuate immediately. I cannot believe I actually have to freaking reblog this but here y'all go just in case Take a break from the humor for just a second and read this. Sorry, what year is this again??
