u/Born_Libertine 4d ago edited 4d ago •
I'm 42, and I still catch instructionals like this from my mom and step-dad. Sometimes, it is a tiny bit condescending. But in my more introspective hours, I often wonder if because of their age (they're in their early 80s), it's a sort of emotional dependency thing... like they know their time is coming to an end, which causes pain and fear, and these things are just them trying desperately to reach out to the past; to what they love most, and are most terrified to never see again...trying to hold on to the happier days of their lives, in the midst of their final ones.
So, I always just say, "Yes, mom. I promise I'll make sure my phone is charged before I drive home." "Yes, dad. I promise I will keep oil in it."

u/Desperate-Strategy10 4d ago
As a mom, I think you're dead on, at least for parents like me. It's really, really fucking hard to watch your kids grow up and become functioning adults when you're so used to them being helpless babies. They need you for so long, an enormous portion of your life, and then one day they just don't anymore. Making that mental switch from "I'm teaching you how to human" to "I'm admiring the person you've become from a respectful distance" feels impossible from where I'm at. I hope it gets easier, but from what I've seen, if anything it'll get harder.
And don't even get me started on the aging part. I'm not trying to cry right now lol.

And it was at that moment that she decided she needed to shop for coffins for herself.

I’m a high school science teacher. There’s always a handful of students who just sort of breeze through by doing the bare minimum of work it takes to technically pass the class, but never bother to really think in-depth about anything or try to understand what’s happening. I assume that they’re thinking this is all “useless” information that they’re “never gonna use anyway.”
But then they leave high school with 0 critical thinking skills or scientific literacy. It is frustrating from my end to see these students who, despite my best efforts, just don’t care enough to learn.

My first book, You're Not Enough (& That's Okay): Escaping the Toxic Culture of Self-Love, is available now, and I couldn't be more excited! In this age of what I call "trendy narcissism," young women are bombarded with the myth that self-love is all we need for satisfaction. The truth is, self-love, self-empowerment, self-fulfillment, self-whatever will ultimately lead to a dead end of disappointment. In the book, we bust five of society's most popular cultural myths, such as "you can't love other people until you love yourself" and "you determine your own truth." These are superficial lies that, when believed, have both personal and societal ramifications. Thankfully, the Bible gives us truthful alternatives that show us a better way.

Well, to be fair, we don't really know exactly what they looked like. That's why it was such massive news when we realised they probably had feathers. There might even be curveball organs like elephant trunks n shit that are impossible for us to know because soft tissue doesn't really hold up over millions of years.
But in terms of how they sounded, I think we've got some preserved vocal cavities or something that we used to estimate how they might've sounded.

I’ll never understand their delusions. To them it’s impossible to know what a t-rex looked or sounded like because fossils are made up, but they are dead certain of what Jesus looked and sounded like based on a bunch of old stories. How do they compute?

Everyone knows dinosaur bones were planted by the devil to distract true Christian’s from their ultimate goal: hating the gays.

No your wrong, they were put there by God to test the faith of the people. /s

These are two completely separate ideas that don’t really go together. The bones are real, obviously. Dinosaurs existed, obviously. In terms of how they are represented in pop culture like their skin and their sound, yeah, she’s right those are mostly educated guesses backed by very little evidence.
Clearly this woman does not know the difference between actual science and Jurassic park. To her, I guess it’s all the same ‘nerd fantasy’.
u/RubiMent 5d ago
People really underestimate palaeontology. In a film yes, it is backed by little evidence, but actual scientist who theorise how the animals looked like put a lot LOT more effort into the research, and it is not just baseless assumptions. It is far from just slapping skin on some bones.→ More replies (29)
u/SlickWilly49 4d ago
Here’s a really interesting snippet from a talk given by palaeontologist David Hone, where he describes the speed and distance a T-Rex could run. The degree to which they can theorise about the physiology and predation of dinosaurs from a tiny bone structure in the foot is amazing. It’s the difference between investing your life into understanding dinosaurs with the minimal amount of specimens available to us, and “we don’t know what they looked like so they didn’t exist lmao”→ More replies (3)→ More replies (21)
