I spent most of this morning learning about how koalas are dumb as fuck

@Dayglochainsaw It's an excellent case study how when devoid of selection pressure, a species can trend towards lower energy. It's actually somewhat amazing they've managed to avoid behavioral sink.

@Dayglochainsaw If anything, I would think that koala's becoming so stupid is what helped them avoid behavioral sink.

@Dayglochainsaw No fuck you, koalas for life, they troublehacked the fuck out of evolution.

@Dayglochainsaw Honestly could have saved me a full 200 level philosophy of language course.

@Dayglochainsaw My favorite group of confused-about-words are analytical philosophers, cuz they all have brain worms where they think strictly applied explicit definitions are easier to work with than just rolling. I think you can learn a lot about human psychology by watching them spin.

@Dayglochainsaw They're just like "fuck you I'm not investing in your competitive bullshit, it's too tiring, I'm just gonna eat this thing nobody want, now leave me alone"

@Dayglochainsaw what about panda bears?

the only reason they still exist is that humans find them cute, and so, force them to fuck. otherwise they would've died out decades ago.

@Dayglochainsaw I feel like this about pandas. all these people putting in so much effort to conserve them. they clearly want to die out just let them go in peace

@Dayglochainsaw do "potato chips" count as a type of "leaf"? Cuz otherwise I might need to check to see if I'm a koala.

@Dayglochainsaw that is actually an ethical stance they're taking

@Dayglochainsaw to be fair, cats are also this but backwards, if you hold a cat treat out they might not understand that it's a cat treat

@Dayglochainsaw did you read anything about how baby koalas ease into eating eucalyptus leaves? because oh boy

@Dayglochainsaw baby koalas basically eat their mother's diarrhea until they're able to eat the full on leaves since they're so poisonous

@Dayglochainsaw always here for people dunking on koalas, a+ work
