The difference between the building at the beginning versus the building at the end is stressing me out.
Like, how long were they gone? I mean, really. The plaster is gone from the building, that ivy has covered the entire upper part of the building, including the windows. The slope on the side of road is gone and filled in. The trees have filled in overhead.
the beauty we learn behind this aweful tragedy from the young pure souls
- a boy give his life jacket and give all his life to help his classmate… he die as a hero on his birthday
- a young selfless ship attendant help distribute life jackets to passenger and stay behind until her last breath
- a 6 years old brother who give his life jacket to his 5 years old sister and wispher comfort even his fate is still unknown
- a student who yell for rescuer to take a small child from his arms even the ferry is sinking and he still on it
either u’re gone or safe or still missing my thought and pray goes for you…may your soul rest in peace and hope miracles exist so u can be with your love again and be safe…
I’m crying.. These people are heroes..
Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
Shout out if you grew up in No Data land!
iirc the theory goes, light skin was a mutation that was never selected against because it let in much more of the sun’s radiation which was needed to make vitamin D, which, in cloudier/darker/less sunny europe, people needed all they could get. And as well people began drinking milk of other animals which led to people who kept producing lactase long after childhood where they got calcium. Vitamin D is needed to digest and metabolize calcium, so when you didn’t get enough vitamin D from the sun due to weather, you wouldn’t metabolize the calcium, and even with the adaptations of digesting calcium-rich milk and having skin that let in tons of radiation, you’d get stuff like rickets and whatnot. Darker skin is predisposed to protect against harsh sun radiation since vitamin D is definitely not in short supply where your skin gets lots of exposure to the sun.
As diet improved, and you could get vitamin D AND calcium through your food, these adaptations stopped meaning as much as they used to, and you could go anywhere without, yknow, dying. Our bodies have changed so little while our civilization, food, and culture has so much.
