People Expose The Weird Things That Probably Only Happen In Their Countries

One of the most exciting parts of the internet is how we are able to easily meet and connect with people all over the world. It's so interesting to compare cultures with real people, rather than just basing our expectations on movies and books. Hearing from a real person is definitely the way to go. Plus they can share all the weird sh*t that they have in their country, and it's usually not the kind of stuff you'll see in a TV show. If you think your country is weird, maybe this thread will make you realize, really, all countries are weird.

Ridiculous Pictograph Of Average Female Height Per Country: Funny Twitter Thread

A pictograph showing the average women's height per country has gone viral for its ridiculous scale representation. Depicting giant 5'5" Latvian women towering above tiny 5'0" Indian women, people are ruthlessly roasting the graph in a hilarious Twitter thread. Initially posted by @reina_sabah, she wrote, "As an Indian woman, I can confirm that too much of my time is spent hiding behind a rock praying the terrifying gang of international giant ladies and their Latvian general don't find me." Fellow Twitter users found the graphic equally as insulting, baffling, and absurd and have some witty comebacks in response. Check out some of the funniest ones below.

Foxes In Cities Evolving Smaller Skulls, Much Like Domesticated Pets

This is pretty wild! Or... quite literally the opposite of wild. 

According to a new study, foxes that were found in the city of London have stubbier snouts, and even smaller skulls than their wildlife-dwelling counterparts. And these changes aren't that new, it's been seen before.. with cats and dogs as they became domesticated 20,000 and 40,000 years ago.

Researchers are now suggesting that city foxes could possibly be self-domesticating due to the demands of the city environment, as well as, exposure to humans. 

So why are these adaptations happening? Foxes that dwell in the city are reported to have a wider snout and smaller braincase due to the levels of requiring food in the city versus their natural habitat. They rely on food scraps, which doesn't require as strong of a bite to clamp down on bones. Whereas country foxes need that snout that enables them to bite their prey quickly.
