Humans are fucking TERRIFYING. How many other animals on the planet can still try to stab you after you cut their limbs off? How many creatures can put together a system capable of communicating with two places hundreds of miles apart in seconds? How many other animals know how to unleash an explosion so powerful that walking near where it went off decades later can give you CANCER?! ANSWER: NONE!!!
I can’t find the image right now, but there’s a tumblr conversation which basically paints humans as the MacGyver and/or Krogan of our planet. It’s an interesting read. Apparently there’s mounting evidence that humans have such high endurance because we hunted our prey by walking after it until it collapsed from exhaustion.
