Tumblr Thread: Humans are Too Strong for Their Own Good

It's kinda scary, kinda thrilling and makes you kind of proud to think that in some cases, your body can be literally too strong to keep itself together. Tumblr spends a lot of time on the weird sci-fi-ness  of human physiology, which results in interesting threads like these Tumblr users exploring humans as space orcs or this Tumblr thread about aliens being defeated by earth's wildlife.

Tumblr Thread about the human body has limits to its own strength so it doesn't damage itself | not--bot--swear Just so guys know. Hysterical strength is basically body not holding back and going %100 though there is great danger hurting yourself or breaking something since ignoring pain and going %100. There case where kid deadlifted car save sibling but,cracked 8 his teeth during because he clenching his jaw so hard. So whilst can lift car or fight off polar bears probably going break somethin

Awesome, our bodies are like natural history museums. Apparently, we're brimming with evolutionary leftovers, and Dorsa Amir mapped out a way to play around with some of these in a fun Twitter thread.

Tumblr Explores Human Nature with "Knife Roomba"

One of Tumblr's favorite things to do is expound on human nature in discussions, essays and threads about the role human beings as team "hold my beer" in the universe. It's generally regarded, out of self interest and flattery that we're basically badass space orcs. These kinds of discussions go on to describe Earth as the type of planet whose wildlife could fight off an alien invasion. So in this context, the idea that a human ship would have a knife Roomba affectionately referred to as "Stabby" not only makes perfect sense, but sort of makes us want to get one right now.

Tumblr thread describes sci fi humans as having a stabbing knife roomba | sepulchritude on topic humans being intergalactic “hold my beer" species: imagine an alien stepping onto human starship and seeing space roomba with knife duct taped onto just wandering around ship doesn't have any special intelligence s just normal space roomba. there are other space roombas on ship and they don't have knives s just this one. knife space roomba has full clearance every room ship. occasionally crew members

Gorilla's Unique Pigmentation On Fingers Goes Viral

We all know according to evolution, we are descendants of apes. Yet, it's even more clear after seeing images of just one gorilla. 

Meet Anaka, who resides at the Zoo Altanta. Anaka is unique, not only in terms of skin, but in personality as well. "[She's] often barking at her mom and others to get a prime spot for food and juice," Altanta Zoo wrote on their website. "She is often seen riding piggyback on her brother and sisters."

When the Morena Lale commented on a post from the zoo, asking if Anaka had vitiligo (a skin condition characterized by loss of skin pigmentation).

The Zoo responded, "Well, her skin pigment has always been like that and hasn't changed over the years, so we think it's just a cool birthmark."

Cool, indeed!

This Adorable Shih-tzu Dog Has a ‘Human Face’ And We Don't Know What To Think About It

Yogi is an adorable Shih-tzu dog who's owner, Chantal Desjardins, never thought he really looked like human at all: "Looking at him normally, I don't see it!", she told The Dodo. It was only after sharing Yogi's photo on Facebook that Chantal heard otherwise. People started noticing something unusual about the way he looks. Then one of Chantal's friends posted a picture of Yogi on Reddit — and the internet really began weighing in. There's indeed something undeniably human about little Yogi's countenance. The piercing gaze of his light almond-shaped eyes, the sense of a strong brow ridge above in his fluff, and those soft pinkish lips all definitely play a part in giving the dog the uncanny look of being part-person. Some people even say that at the first glance it also seems that he is the result of a very successful face swap. What do you think?

Creative Tumblr Thread Imagines Earth As Space Australia from Alien Perspective

It's compelling and somewhat flattering to think of Earth as the most dangerous place in the galaxy, with humans being the only ones crazy enough to tame it. This thought brings fun ideas such as the idea of humans as super resilient space orcs, or the idea that aliens trying to invade Earth could be stopped by local wildlife. It's informative, fun, and somewhat self indulgent.
