lovely annelid (1:09:59 AM): Okay, so basically, when people look for other people to reproduce with, there's a general... uh, let's say most people are 5s on a scale of one to ten in terms of intelligence, looks, personality, etc.
Uber Technology (1:10:11 AM): uh-huh
Uber Technology (1:10:12 AM): uh-huh
lovely annelid (1:10:24 AM): People generally try to go one rank up from themselves. People try to get better looking, smarter mates than themselves.
Uber Technology (1:10:26 AM): kage's a 10 in all of them right
lovely annelid (1:10:35 AM): he's minus a billion
Uber Technology (1:10:44 AM): even in looks??????
lovely annelid (1:10:46 AM): So basically, what scientists have found is that
lovely annelid (1:11:11 AM): The people at the extremes, the 1s and the 10s, don't tend to reproduce a lot.
lovely annelid (1:11:26 AM): The 5s reproduce a lot. But they always try to have famblies with 6s.
each atom sings (1:11:35 AM): whoaaaaaa
lovely annelid (1:11:39 AM): So there's actually a subtle trend in the general population's IQ upwards.
lovely annelid (1:12:12 AM): And given the mixing of bloodlines, given how easily people can travel, and the gradual reduction of overt racism, there's now more choices for people.
lovely annelid (1:12:22 AM): So that trend is predicted to continue, and then to actually speed up a little.
lovely annelid (1:12:40 AM): So humanity, as a whole, is becoming slightly smarter and has been.
lovely annelid (1:19:44 AM): Walrii are pretty amazing creatures. They're part of the family pinneped, which means flipper-foot. They're one of the most intelligent species on the planet and they have highly complex social cues and rituals.
Uber Technology (1:19:50 AM): OH FUCK YES
lovely annelid (1:20:10 AM): Walruses will actually defend seals not of their own species from danger, because their sense of empathy is so finely attuned.
Sletia16 (1:20:29 AM): flipper foot. that is so cute
Uber Technology (1:20:36 AM): /stares intently
lovely annelid (1:20:40 AM): They also have extremely strong rules for joining their "beaches". Walruses dine on mussells and fish, and do not consume red meat.
lovely annelid (1:20:42 AM): But.
lovely annelid (1:20:46 AM): Some walruses do.
Uber Technology (1:20:49 AM): !!!
Uber Technology (1:20:50 AM): cannibals?
lovely annelid (1:21:03 AM): They will attack and kill other walruses, weaker, smaller seals and pinnipeds, birds, etc.
lovely annelid (1:21:13 AM): Constantly eating red meat stains their tusks red.
Uber Technology (1:21:27 AM): so you can tell when one's a threat to you?
lovely annelid (1:21:28 AM): Other walruses will have nothing to do with red-stained walrsus and will evict them from the clans.
Uber Technology (1:21:44 AM): ohhh\
Sletia16 (1:22:03 AM): where do you get all this stuff?
Uber Technology (1:22:07 AM): p knows everything.
cmdrpinstripes (1:22:12 AM): it's truth
lovely annelid (1:22:14 AM): They can't sleep with other walruses, feed with them, spend time or mate with them and are regarded as dangers. That's why you occasionally see a walrus swimming alone in the ocean with red-stained tusks. Blood ivory, it's called.
