Humans do NOT come from Earth – and sunburn, bad backs and pain during labour prove it, expert claims [dailymail]
A U.S. ecologist has claimed that humans are not from Earth but were put on the planet by aliens tens of thousands of years ago. Dr Ellis Silver points to a number of physiological features to make his case for why humans did not evolve alongside other life on Earth, in his new book. They range from humans suffering from bad backs - which he suggests is because we evolved in a world with lower gravity – to getting too easily sunburned and having difficulty giving birth.
Dr Ellis says that while the planet meets humans’ needs for the most part, it does not perhaps serve the species’ interests as well as the aliens who dropped us off imagined. In his book, HUMANS ARE NOT FROM EARTH: A SCIENTIFIC EVALUATION OF THE EVIDENCE, the ecologist writes the human race has defects that mark it of being ‘not of this world’. ‘Mankind is supposedly the most highly developed species on the planet, yet is surprisingly unsuited and ill-equipped for Earth’s environment: harmed by sunlight, a strong dislike for naturally occurring foods, ridiculously high rates of chronic disease, and more,’ he told Yahoo. Dr Ellis says that humans might suffer from bad backs because they evolved on a world with lower gravity. He also says that it is strange that babies’ heads are so large and make it difficult for women to give birth, which can result in fatalities of the mother and infant.
This explains *a lot* about Neandertal extinction. Also makes a change from the aquatic ape hypothesis.
You left out the best part:
‘This suggests (to me at least) that mankind may have evolved on a different planet, and we may have been brought here as a highly developed species.’
‘One reason for this … is that the Earth might be a prison planet, since we seem to be a naturally violent species and we’re here until we learn to behave ourselves,’ he said.
You’re right. I can’t leave out that valuable science.
so we’re basically the Australia of an alien planet?
"Silver’s theories have been met with a healthy amount of criticism, but he says he chose a book format instead of a scientific paper in order to spark debate. He says, “Little in the book can be proven – it can only be supposed or suspected. But there is more than enough indisputable evidence to make further study worthwhile.’"
AKA this guy doesn’t even have research or legitimate study behind his theories this is literally a conspiracy theorist’s rambles so of course tumblr goes OOOOOOOH THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE oh my god

Microsoft Publishes Sexist Form Letter To Help Dudes Convince Women To Let Them Buy An Xbox One
Today Microsoft released a form letter essentially created for men to send to women, encouraging their partners to let them buy an Xbox One console, as the new device will be great for both of them.
The letter, which can be customized slightly, is incredibly bad, playing to ridiculous male and female gender stereotypes. It presumes that women don’t like sports or play video games and need to be condescended into technology purchase decisions by their male partners as they oh-so-certainly couldn’t come to those conclusions on their own!
After all, women and technology, amirite?
Holy hell, Microsoft. I know that young male gamers can be a touch on the ignorant side when it comes to gender equality, but from a company worth more than $300 billion, and with better-than-normal female representation in its senior leadership, producing something this sexist and ignorant is an incredible disappointment and shame.
Propagating sexist stereotypes isn’t something to be tolerated. What’s almost incredible in the letter (before its language is potentially shaken up by the user) is that it manages to be directly sexist in implication, using loaded language like “honey” and comments on the physical appearance of the unnamed recipient, while eliding direct indication of gender. But it’s there. If you can’t see it, open your eyes.
This from a company that managed to come out on the right side of history on gay rights in Washington. The letter is also stridently heteronormative. Its almost oppressively straight tone is off-key from a company such as Microsoft, which has a large LGBT workforce. You almost want to wonder what’s up over in Xbox-land.
For flavor, a few quotes:
Hey honey, Not sure if you’ve heard, but Xbox One is now available.
After all, women don’t follow news, let alone technology news, and so how could she know! Time to let her in on the secrets of little boxes with blinky lights!
Maybe you don’t LOVE games like I do, but there’s really something for everyone. […] You love movies and I love football. Well, with the Xbox One, we can love both.
Again, women don’t play games. Ever. And apparently don’t like football. But they do love those movies! You know, the ones with the actors and actresses they read about in their fluffy women’s magazines! The sort of magazines that never discuss technology, of course. We know that as we’ve already established that the women this letter is for have never heard of the word “Xbox” before!
We can talk on Skype with your favorite sister whom, of course, I love dearly.
Because men don’t have close family! That’s for women! And dear heavens if men have, you know feelings and all that. Those are for women! And fine dear we can talk to your goddamn sister so long as I get Man Time later to shoot things. Pew, pew, pew, woman.
So what do you say? Let’s be like an awesome movie montage-just me, you, and my [the my is crossed out] our Xbox One-together at last.
Again, women don’t own consoles! Silly women!
P.S. Did I mention how beautiful you are? And how I really appreciate that you love me more than anything?
Microsoft, did I mention how stupid this letter is and how much respect for you I just lost?
The Xbone Zone strikes again and this time they’re dousing themselves in gasoline and lighting themselves ablaze.
I’d literally be ashamed to own one of these consoles at this point, and my resolve to get away from anything Microsoft has only gotten more intense.
………………………….oh my god.
"You’d rather knit than watch me slay zombies"
"While I’m playing Dead Rising 3 you might like arcade games"
fuck you Microsoft
They’ve decided to change up the letter due to the backlash this caused, apparently.
GUYS I FOUND IT AGAIN JESUS CHRIST ASLKDJAKLSDJALKSD
Redditors were able to translate the DTMF (phone) tones in the transmission above to “IMSECURE” (I’m secure?), probably in response to the last morse code provided in the front page (“return transmission”).
Concerns have been raised that 3450 is an illegal frequency to use, however fiberkanin suggests possibly otherwise.
A woman’s voice said at one point “the next transmission is at 0200 UTC”. Nothing was heard.Over the next 6 hours, an air raid siren is occasionally heard, and uninterpretable voices
CQ CQ CQ BST IS GONE II BST IS GONE N HPE FREQ 3450 RT GB AMERICA
“Calling all stations, calling all stations, calling all stations. Boston is gone, I repeat, Boston is gone. No Hope. Frequency 3450 Return Transmission. God Bless America.”
The frequency 3450 lead to the ~20:44 discovery of an odd transmission on 3450Hz.
- File is named Prov; no confirmation of what it means yet. Some suggest Providence, RI, which is close to Boston.
Well here’s the latest news from the Fallout series. I’ll try to post each day’s update here as I’m stoked, I want you stoked, and it’s fun. So it appears that we are, if the website is legit, going to Boston in Fallout 4. Now this makes me wonder about those so called fake leakers. Were they fake or a clever marketing ploy?
Also hope you guys like the picture, it will be used for all updates for Fallout 4 until official announcement.
I’ve never played Fallout but if this isn’t one of the coolest ways to promo a game I’ve ever seen holy shiiiiit!
god is dead
