Elephants Know How Dangerous We Are From How We Speak
Elephants pay attention when we speak, a new study in Kenya shows.
When an elephant killed a Maasai woman collecting firewood near Kenya’s Amboseli National Park in 2007, a group of young Maasai men retaliated by spearing one of the animals.
"It wasn’t the one that had killed the woman, says Graeme Shannon, a behavioral ecologist at Colorado State University, in Fort Collins. "It was just the first elephant they encountered—a young bull on the edge of a swamp."
The Maasai spiked him with spears and, their anger spent, returned home. Later, the animal died from his wounds.
Elephants experience those kinds of killings sporadically. Yet the attacks happen often enough that the tuskers have learned that the Maasai—and Maasai men in particular—are dangerous.
The elephants in the Amboseli region are so aware of this that they can even distinguish between Ma, the language of the Maasai, and other languages, says a team of researchers, who report their findings today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Because I’ve studied Psychology.
Freud’s theories are unscientific, they’re untestable, they’re prone to circular reasoning, and are just… well, nonsense. He got the idea for his theory of the unconscious because he didn’t believe a patient when she told him her father had molested her, his reasoning was ‘a man would never do that, that must be repressed sexual fantasies.’ The vast majority of his so called clinical assessments are useless, because again - they’re based on nonsense. Thanks to him the general public to have this very misinformed view of psychology and as a result he’s set the science back because people assume that all of it is as wishy-washy and unfounded as the theories of a cocaine addict with a mother fixation.
Agree 100% and I think his theories, such as they are, actually continue to set back physiological progress to this day.
I may have once rolled my eyes when a professor mentioned we were going to study Freud and then giggled because I thought she was joking when she said she was a firm believer in Freudian analysis.
She didn’t really like me….
I took a psychology class at a community college in rural NC taught by a badass feminist army veteran. We got to the chapter on Freud and she literally said: “We’re not going to study this because it’s bullshit.” We spent exactly one class discussing why it was bullshit, then moved on to study the scientific method, Milgram and Harlow, and the development of ethical standards in the field of psychology. That is what Freud is to people who actually understand his contribution to the field: a gateway into discussing the way ideas become scientific theories and the ethics surrounding the development of said theories.
Because it’s not science if you literally say, “I don’t trust this woman because lol hysterical vagina syndrome, here’s the only misogynistic explanation for what’s going on, she is totes envious of the penis, haha, fact.”
I’m so glad I’m not the only person who recognizes this

I love that Aang’s favorite fighting style is nooooooope.
honestly wasn’t expecting that post to be repesctful
They still took a picture of this person without their permission, posted it on the internet, and called them a fatty. Yeah, i dont exactly find that respectful.
They also assume that bc the person is fat, they must hate themselves and want to be thin. They assume that the person is fat because they ate or drank too much or were lazy for some period before they began exercising. They aren’t showing respect to a fat person, they’re showing respect to a potential thin person.
reblogging for the last two comments. the post from the asshole with thin privilege is extremely disrespectful.
Wow, what a twist from the OP! You think think they are being an invasive fat shaming asshole, but THEN you realize that all along they were actually being an invasive fat shaming asshole who self-righteously feels like they should be congratulated for it because they think their abuse is inspiration. Quite the reversal!
What kind of dipshit thinks that was respectful on ANY level? That was some self-congratulatory, fatphobic, patronizing garbage.
These comments are on point.
