Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

Batgirl (2000-2006) #15

"Be careful."

This is heartbreaking to me. It’s honestly the most emotionally open and vulnerable I think we’ve seen Cassandra be at this point in the series. She’s still gravely effected by the illusion she witnessed and also conflicted about realizing that she could still have the instinct to murder.

But, as usual with Cass, her foremost concern is with others. The reality of losing Batman is not something she feels ready to face, and it’s incredibly tragic for her to see the reality of that event.

The marine eels and other members of the superorder  Elopomorpha have a leptocephalus larval stage, which are flat and transparent. This group is quite diverse, containing 801 species in 24 orders, 24 families and 156 genera (super diverse). 

Leptocephali have compressed bodies that contain jelly-like substances on the inside, with a thin layer of muscle with visible myomeres on the outside, a simple tube as a gut, dorsal and anal fins, but they lack pelvic fins. They also don’t have any red blood cells (most likely is respiration by passive diffusion), which they only begin produce when the change into the juvenile glass eel stage. Appears to feed on marine snow, tiny free-floating particles in the ocean.

This large size leptocephalus must be a species of Muraenidae (moray eels), and probably the larva of a long thin ribbon eel, which is metamorphosing, and is entering shallow water to finish metamorphosis into a young eel, in Bali, Indonesia.

Is it just me or does he look REALLY excited about where ever (s)he’s going?

i just looked at the face and now this post is million times better

If somebody working for marvel is reading this, I only want to say that I would pay a good amount of money for a regular series of Gwen Stacy as spider-woman/punk rock drummer.

Seconded. I would give Marvel all the money ever

To all the people out there who want to see Spider-Gwen have her own series, go out and make sure this book sells out on between now and Friday. The issue of “What if” where Spider-Girl first appeared sold out pretty much in every store on the day it came out, and then she got her own series that lasted for ten years. 

I got the last copy at my store

Awesome! We still had a lot of them at my store today (then again we ordered a lot) so I was getting worried, so that’s good to hear.
