    Mainly because there are like vets and not just "walk it off and/or rub it in dirt" when something happens.

    Captive whales have demonstrably shortened lifespans compared to wild ones. Like as in decades in fucking difference.

    It is a perfectly fine breeding strategy until some assholes arrive and start murdering you or wiping out the environment.

    it's perfectly fine until something changes and then you're kinda fucked

    so it's not really a very good breeding strategy

    "Perfectly fine until something changes and then you're kinda fucked" applies to pretty much every species when dealing with a huge new change like humans.

    assuming your environment will stay exactly the same forever within some very fine tolerances is not a winning survival strategy

    even if humans hadn't come along it would have been a matter of time until a volcano went off or a meteor hit or the climate changed

    yeah, exactly

    the environment will always change - a new species of predator, fauna changes, whatever

    Narwhal what the public really needs to know is, are you a liar?

    Absolutely. Almost habitually.

    but why? i really want to understand this because my brother lies constantly and i just dont get it. i very very rarely lie. i even generally tell the truth when it can negatively impact me a lot.

    i mean all i ever think is "what will happen if the truth comes out?" "what if i really need someone to believe my word but they dont anymore because they found out i lied?" it just doesnt seem WORTH it to me. like it doesnt even have to be a thing about morality anymore when you break it down, it's simply a matter of what is and isnt worth the risk.

    maybe i just value people knowing i am telling the truth more than other people value it. i feel like it gives you a platform of power in social interactions because your word is worth more than someone who has lied in the past.

    long or even short term risk assessment is something human beings are poor at, in isolation of other traits, incentives and circumstances that encourage lying

    I won't say that lying is always bad. I lie to my parents all the time. My whole childhood was based on lying to my parents just to get to do normal things. Lying is not inherently immoral or risky.

    Lying to your parents was very average thing for me as well. But it wasn't compulsory, it was simply that I didn't trust them with the truth. I loved them and they weren't really bad at all. But I didn't feel that they would react reasonably to some things I felt were minor.

    The comedy here is that a dumb teenager is the one making these judgement calls. But even as i look back at most of them as an adult, It really was minor shit.

    These days I would say I lie very little. I just don't surround myself with people that I feel I can't trust with the truth.

    Yo this resonates with me.

    woah the new lol champ is out already, that was a fast turnaround.

    Gnar is the last champion who will be available for tournament play for 2014 because of the way they handle tournaments and patches so they're speeding up champ releases since they dont have to worry about balance for finals and Worlds

    Oh cool, Thats a really good idea!

    They're great parents, is the weird thing!

    They're bad people, unfortunately.

    The cycle didn't start with them, in fairness.

    It's the damned firewater, y'see.

    Destroys native families.

    Just fulfilling a stereotype.

    my mom has become an alcoholic. no doubt in my mind that she wouldnt be one if it werent for my father. he disapproves of drinking so she binges out because basically "fuck that guy i can do what i want, i'm not his child". even though she then feels guilty for doing it and stays with him despite being treated like shit for drinking and for existing.

    I post Makeup stuff and Schnauzers on instagram.

    Due to the lack of predators, herbivores killed off a ton of trees. After the wolves were reintroduced, the wolves keeping the herbivore population down made an entire area grow a forest and change the flow of a river.

    Feel free to ask anything, honestly ...

    I find trying to determine how my mind works as fascinating as anybody else :P

    so why did you disappear before your wedding and steal the car?

    Ah! Why do I run?

    It's not a fear of punishment. As I've mentioned, thanks to chronic depression there's nothing you can take from me that I would care about!

    The first thought im that situation, always, is "Oh god I'm really fucked up. I'm so fucked up that I caused unimaginable pain to these lovely people! Oh, they're so hurt. I am a danger to them. I need to go away."

    Which is why my father's accusation that I don't feel remorse is particularly laughable.

    It's been my primary motivator for years.

    The only thing I've ever lost from lying that I cared about was my fiancee. And I had her so thoroughly abused that I had to be the one to leave, and then she begged me to come back.

    But I would just keep hurting her, so I've never been in contact with her since then.

    It's probably the only worthwhile thing I've ever done.

    a new species of predator isn't a slow change either.

    Before adapting to something you have to be able to survive it. Slow breeding makes you less resilient to change and setbacks.

    We're not wiping out the environment, we're changing it.

    Most animals don't actually survive the very quick environmental changes though. They are simply replaced by completely different species. Grasslands simply don't support the most of the same species as forests for example.
