The only valid excuse for color coding your dog is that you have too many of them and couldn't tell them apart

maybe I do, if there's no variance in them, it kinda gets boring after a few weeks.
but if you have multiple... different shapes, different lengths, different everything

Why do brown eyes look so much better on huskies? Their "blue" eyes are so fucking creepy. They're more like grey eyes, just hollow and lifeless.
>>
>>4269114
Brown eyes are boring and too mainstream. Every other breed has boring brown/black eyes.

The best part of having a husky is waking up to their creepy blue eyes peering into your innermost soul.

>No amount of pain can overwrite our survival instincts.
That's a funny conviction to have. Very false historically.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_suicide
But I guess you mean something really specific, but also certainly false: there's never been someone who killed themselves simply to avoid feeling physical pain.
You can equivocate endlessly whether they were motivated by suffering or the "estrangement" you mention, so it's not a very interesting question to me. Probably a million soldiers at least have killed themselves to avoid being tortured to death by the enemy. But then again, you might say that's "estrangement" or something like that.

But you seem to agree that life isn't intrinsically valuable despite what you experience, so I have no further point to make.

Bats are in a pretty uniquely weird spot. In terms of raw numbers they're extremely common, maybe the most common animal in video games period, but I can't think of a single example of them being represented in a remotely realistic way. At best they're just uninteractive background ambience in caves, at worst they're annoying hostile monsters - neither is any accurate to real bats and is much more based on cartoon vampire bat stereotypes. And if you're looking for megabats they're never depicted at all, period.

yeah, i remember finding one of those channels
it was focused on bugs, so it felt like watching some sort of controlled edutainment take on those roaches-in-my-kitchen grossout videos until i saw one where a little mouse was tossed in the cage and then i got sad and stopped watching

basal means at the base of the evolutionary tree

this doesn't depend on WHEN it lived.
chimps are basal humans even though they lived long after humans evolved.

let me know if I can help you with any of your other confusions about evolution, it's my pleasure.

its not really breathing, its respiration, its not like theyre inhaling through their cloaca, its closer to gills where theyre diffusing oxygen and carbon with the water. but thats for turtles, not tortoises. that tortoise just has an itchy butt, most tortoises and turtles like their shells being scratched
