Evolution likes worms that look like tiny disembodied floating butts, and it cannot lie.

Maybe because I love apes, but I really love Kragoff and his Communist Crew.
But I also don’t get how a “brainless” orangutan can repair machinery. Oh well. It won’t matter once he becomes a magnet. You’ll see.
This is too amazing not to reblog. I’m a primate enthusiast, so I must point out that technically baboons are monkeys, not apes. And orangutans are really smart and their fingers are waaay longer than that.
I took class on primate anatomy/morphology in college (with dissection!) and wrote a paper on orangutans specifically.
I like to cook, and read quite a few cooking/food blogs to keep inspired & find new recipes. One of them wrote a post today about making judgements about other people’s food & their diets. The first part especially is a really good read, and rings true to a lot of what I’ve seen in Tumblr-land.
So go read it!
I haven’t been posting because my morale has been low. Every time there’s an upswing something seems to go wrong and it comes crashing down. I can’t seem to make any right decisions lately. It’s all mistake after mistake.
Thanks! I’m super impressed you remembered.
Also, I’m making this public because I am shamelessly trolling for more birthday wishes.
I got my revenge on those missed deadlifts from the other day. I was feeling good this morning and manage to add 15lbs to my squat. 165 ftw! Very happy. I’ve put a lot of work in this year and it’s finally paying off. It wasn’t even ugly, I maintained form & control.
A young & older guy were in the room when I was squatting - maybe father and son, I don’t know. But the kid commented to the other dude - look how deep she is going on those- and the older guy answered that was how you got strong. I was pretty proud, not going to lie. Hell yes that’s how you get strong.
Also my mom gave me bands. She uses them and when one snapped the manufacturer sent her a bunch in apology. So now I have a small green band, and a big black band (the kind for pullups and stuff). Now I have to do some research to figure out various uses. Sweet gift though. I’m bringing her a lacrosse ball on Tuesday as a thank you.
Deadlifts are such a mind game. Got 205, not too difficult. But 215? Failed twice. Totally all in my head.
