Why are some animals considered cute to us?

No.14421208 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Like what's the evolutionary benefit of finding a rodent cute? In the Stone Age we'd try to eat them, no?

Why are IQ scores so controversial? Like they're better than like any other metric we have at determining success in life in terms of how much variance they capture, who cares if some sociologists wanna use some p-hacking and value judgements to claim they're racist, anyone that's taken them can clearly see IQ tests are not racist and don't have some sort of embedded cultural bias

Is behavioral economics the future or is there another field that will become more important for research? Is it possible to make big money as an economist? Do you think blockchain and DAO is really the future?

How far we're from genetically engineering humans, getting genes from species that can hibernate and implementing them into human genome so humans could hibernate? It seems theoretically possible.

What's wrong with her cheek?

No.14426809 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Look closely at her cheek— what even is that shit? My initial guess was that she's recovering from some kind of lowtech stone-age dental procedure (these are natives on an island), but closer inspection makes it look like something else. I don't know what a successful stone-age dentistry operation is supposed to look like.

None of the other indigenous babes from this tribe have any facial flaws or obvious scars like this, which I think is another blow to the dentistry idea,

The REAL reason why aliens haven't been able to contact us

No.14428518 ViewReplyOriginalReport
They are actually trapped in their own planets, it's very likely that multicellular complex intelligent life develops the most on super-earths with higher gravity (thus a better magnetosphere), less mountains in the landscape, shallow oceans (or not) and a greater biodiversity, a K-type star would provide ideal conditions

This would mean that they would be taller than us, stronger but also more burdened due to the high-gravity, trying to escape the planet down from the surface up to the sky and space would be incredibly difficult, which means they are literally imprisoned by their own large planet
