cute as shit
Isn’t it strange that evolution would give us a sense of humor?
When you think about it, it’s weird that we have a physiological response to absurdity. We laugh at nonsense. We like it. We think it’s funny.
Don’t you think it’s odd that we appreciate absurdity? Why would we develop that way? How does it benefit us?
I suppose if we couldn’t laugh at the things that don’t make sense, we couldn’t react to a lot of life.

Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye could have made an awesome buddy comedy film.
If you were to deconstruct a human body into its most basic ingredients, you’d get a little tank each of oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen. There would be piddling piles of carbon, calcium, and salt. You’d squint at pinches of sulfur, phosphorus, iron, and magnesium, and tiny dots of 20 or so other chemical elements. Total street value: not much.
With its own version of what scientists call nanoengineering, nature transforms these inexpensive, abundant, and inanimate ingredients into self-generating, self- perpetuating, self-repairing, self aware creatures that walk, wiggle, swim, sniff, see, think, and even dream. Total value: immeasurable.
