Before I get into it, just know the pictures just serve as visual representations, not actual pictures
Okay so anyway, evidence for this theory is the following:
THE FACT THAT HUMANS ARE SO HAIRLESS:
Only two kind of habitats give rise to hairless animals, an aquatic one and a one below the ground (a naked mole rat for example)
.The suggestion that humans have become hairless to prevent overheating has been rendered false because hair can act like a defense against the sun.
This is why camels retain their fur even in the hot dessert environment.
OUR FAT CELLS
We have ten times the number of fat cells as expected in an animal our size. Only two types of animals have large fat cells: hibernating and aquatic ones.
In hibernating it’s seasonal fat, but in aquatic it’s all year round. It’s unreasonable to think that we evolved this feature in land because large fat pockets would have just slowed us down.
Primate babies are always born slender, but human babies start to develop fat even before birth.
WALKING ON TWO LEGS
So we’re the only mammals that have developed bipedalism. This is a surprise, because walking on 2 legs vs. walking on 4 legs is very disadvantageous. It’s slower, unstable, our organs are vulnerable to damage.
One theory is that if our habitat was flooded, we’d have to walk on two legs to keep our heads above the water.
The only animal who has ever evolved a pelvis like ours, the swamp ape, used this method.
We have conscious control over our breathing. Ever other land animal doesn’t. Mammals like dolphins and seals also conscious control because it tells them how deep they are going to dive and they can estimate how much air they need to inhale.
Our body is so wasteful of salt and water. Think of tears and our way of sweating. Other land mammals don’t have this. Water mammals do however.
Okay anyway I hope you learned something.

I thoroughly recommend reading her pioneering work, “The Descent of Woman”, which was first published in 1972 and was the first to argue, intelligently (and I think, irrefutably) the equal role of women in human evolution. The water ape theory is raised as well as the sociocultural evolution based on a matriarchal anthropology. It really does provide a challenge to the accepted theory of evolution and on the biblically fostered attitudes towards women that seems to be added to Darwin’s theories as an afterthought and an amenity.
It remains the key book to be read in any discussion of the water ape theory, anthropological, evolution and women’s place in society.
Oh yeah? If we came from water apes, [side-eye] then why don’t I like to eat fish?
My dumb cat licking up shower water.
I used to have a cat who enjoyed sitting in the post-shower puddles and watching the water droplets run down the shower wall.
She also loved watching the spring water stream out of the dispenser until a bubble rose in the jug, which she would then watch until it got to the top. Then she’d switch focus back to the glass. Repeat until the glass was full.
She was so smart I wouldn’t have been surprised if she was an alien in cat form sent to observe humans in their natural habitat.
I worried that she would escape the house someday and get lost or run over or rejoin the mothership, so I brought her outside whenever it rained so she’d think water fell from the sky outside all the time.
I named her Lucy because she always had some ‘splainin to do.
It’s amazing to see a skilled helicopter pilot at work.
reminded me of the time I attached a big water balloon (in matching yellow for camouflage) to the ceiling directly above the chair of a guy who liked to throw water balloons at people.
I had a miniature dart from a jokey desktop decision-making dartboard that I planned to throw at it when he was in position to bring the deluge down upon him. I was ready when he sat down to eat his lunch, but I took pity on him and waited until he was done eating his tuna sandwich.
Unfortunately, he saw it before I could pull the trigger, so the time and peril I went through climbing over the safety rung of a folding ladder I put on top of a table were all for naught.
I’m too nice.
What was it Smokey the Bear said?
"Only YOU can start forest fires close to the road so they’ll be easy to put out."
Something like that.
Ever have that vague sense of impending doom?
southern arizonans shocked by sudden sensation believed to be known as “cold”
“we forget seasons existed,” mourned teenagers huddled together in nothing but shorts and t-shirts
meanwhile reports from northern arizonans consist of entertaining stories of tossing pots of boiling water into the 3° night air until they can no longer stand to carry the pots in and out on rotation because its fucking COLD
it was a balmy -8 on my walk to class early this morning. wanna see my braincicles?
Why would someone throw perfectly good boiling water outside?
Forget sneaking up on anyone in these.
But if you don’t need to be stealthy, these are the perfect CSI-proof shoes.

Like most cats, Shadow hates water. But she didn’t care about soaking her head under the faucet. Weird kitty.
