Carl telling us how (not) to science.
"conclusion: dinosaurs" is still my favorite rebuttal to just about anything tbh.
Second perhaps only to “Therefore: aliens”
I would have liked for there to be ferns and dinosaurs.
Hey you! This is how I do lab reports. Conclusion: dinosaurs. I get A’s in your class, right?
viα vulturehooligan: Sky burial is a ritual that has great religious meaning. Tibetans are encouraged to witness this ritual, to confront death openly and to feel the impermanence of life. They believe that the corpse is nothing more than an empty vessel. The spirit, or the soul, of the deceased has exited the body to be reincarnated into another circle of life. The corpse is offered to the vultures.
It is believed that the vultures are Dakinis. Dakinis are the Tibetan equivalent of angels. In Tibetan, Dakini means “sky dancer”. Dakinis will take the soul into the heavens, which is understood to be a windy place where souls await reincarnation into their next lives.
This is brutal as hell, and I want to do this when I die for sure.
Six hundred goddamn AD
Six hundred. Goddamn AD.
This needs to be en-grained in every single living human.
