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.

Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

With a job that my mother says will be easier to deal with than at the market, I have full on faith that I will make it to my goals. With keeping busy and the pressure of time management, I expect better outomes from myself.

If anything, I’m excited to get my driver’s license and drive my first car sometime this year, or early next year.
This time around, I must be more disciplined and save money. I want to travel, don’t I? I will set a budget for myself depending on how much I earn a month.

New things are both exciting and scary.

Some nice pics from the Mirada site for the development of the intro sequence. Mostly posting because I recognize the Hallgrímskirkja and I see they’ve replaced Leif with a kaiju….

#this is what pushed the movie from Fun to Really Really Good for me #most other movies of this type are just like #”now - but with aliens!” #but here we actually see how society at large has reacted to kaiju becoming a part of everyday life #it’s a nice bit of realism to balance out the ”giant rock ‘em sock ‘em robots” concept
