As millions of years pass, fish build on their basic design. The muscles around their backbone evolve into a powerful tail and fins appear. They evolve a distinct head. He may not look like you or I, but this odd fish is becoming a blueprint for our own bodies. 

Walking with Dinosaurs was popular enough to inspire a stage performance, many spin-offs, and now a re-make. My favorite of these is the prequel Walking with Monsters: Life Before Dinosaurs. It is a 3-part series that tells the tale of evolution and life in the Paleozoic. 

This is how we went from simple little swimming creatures to taking our first steps on land. A glorious moment in history.

I decided to just clip this audio straight to this line since it’s honestly the entire reason to listen to it.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

These are the whales we’d rather not see. Their bodies are graphically scarred, even sliced apart - not by whalers but by ships in Australian waters.

There’s the humpback nicknamed Bladerunner for the deep propeller cuts in its skin, which was photographed off Eden, NSW, by whale tour operator Cat Balou Cruises. Or another humpback seen recently in Queensland’s Whitsunday Islands by researchers - its flesh opened to the backbone by an unknown vessel.

Injurious or fatal ship strikes in Australian waters are feared to be rising as escalating vessel traffic collides with growing whale numbers, particularly off the eastern states.
