Interesting stuff. I didn't know that.

I'm guessing that works less with Lions and other predators.
Kinda! It also make cheetahs loose their sense of distance ie if they are closer to make attack while running! But yeah it doesn’t have the same dizzy effect!

Also how do I know all this? On weekends I go to my parents house and all my dad do is watch wildlife stuff on tv.

It’s has been proven the stripes are actually to prevent flies to bite them! The other animals get bitten more than zebras! When flies go to land they get confused by the stripes and fail to land!
Holy shit, that's legitimately very interesting! I should read up on it.

In country farms or whatever I see other animals (usually horses and cows) that do the "muscle twitch/vibration" maneuver to try to get rid of flies. But it's amazing that zebras have additional protection against flies!

Zeroing Zeroing what's your favourite wildlife fact?
There’s a fish that cleans other fish for parasites and bacterias, he lives on coral, other fishes go down for a cleaning but there’s one who can mimic it and instead of cleaning the fish, takes big bites out of it. That’s how that fish feed.

Lesson is! Don’t trust anymore!!!!

Why do I always feel I need to spend lots of money double dipping on the PSN store whenever there's a sale going on, buying games I have had on PC for years that I like but never really played anyway :/

Hmm 🤔 let me put my doctors glasses! Well you have some unresolved deeper emotional issues! Maybe you have fear of missing out in something?

I wish we'd also gotten a proper FFVII remaster. I'd have even settled for the same engine they used to make the FFXV mobile game.

Did you broke the screen? You can still fix it or manage to salvage some hardware from it. I do pray it was not an Apple laptop.

It was a Lenovo Yoga. I dropped it from a ledge onto concrete, it landed right on the rear corner where the power button is located, bending it quite impressively. It could no longer be turned on. :messenger_persevering:

Hikes. I still think your laptop can be fixed but not worth the money to do it. Well even busted macs worth a fortune when not working but it is a mess to fix it.

You will have to take the hard drive or SSD, we do not want private data aka "pornz" on the garbage. You can always buy a enclosure and still use your SSD as an external drive.

I wonder what the closest distance was between me and my fiancee prior to meeting in this town.

I am starting to dislike razors after I accidentally peeled off the top layer of skin recently. Just tried to get better at grooming too. I’d rather stick to wax.

Sorry about that. Your face?
My chestnuts. Lol It would have been better had it been my face. I sub to the Dollar Shave Club and the more and more I use them, the more and more I see their flaws. I did learn a lot more about proper wound care. Not to apply those antibiotic creams due to skin aggravation, but apply Ceracream or some type of lube to keep the wound moist. As a kid I’d just put antibiotics on there, but that can causes issues. The 2nd worst pain next to not feeling the anesthetic during my vasectomy. That felt like hot coals being sat on top of me. That pain didn’t last long cause they immediately shot me with more than enough anesthetic.

The Insider is a really great movie. Very heartfelt, very important story. And the true story is very inspiring as well. And yet...it really didn't change anything, except maybe the price of cigarettes. But people are still guzzlin' 'em down.
 
I had to move PC further away from my big ass LG OLED TV. Now my old 2.1 HDMI cable won't reach and I'm sitting here waiting for Amazon to deliver a new 7.5 meters one. I can only play on PS5 or Xbox Series X. I'm pissed off.

Anyone ever notice how women like to put stuff where you need to walk? Like stair baskets. Definitely invented by a woman. That’s how I’ll probably die some day. I’ll get a serious case of cancer, go into remission, and then break my neck tripping over a stair basket

So, if you get beaten down on a regular basis, I suppose it could be like a tenderizing process. But then, that would mean you're just meat. Pleasant for the one consuming you, but perhaps not so much for yourself.
