disgusts me.
Now, now. Before you press "Remove from messages" just hear me out, and maybe discuss this with me because I am interested in this topic.

The human body honestly(in my opinion) is very, very, um..illporportioniate? no no...ok lemme put this in simpler terms. I think it really, freaking sucks.
:bulletblue: We don't move fast
:bulletblue: We don't have acute senses
:bulletblue: We only grow hair in specific places
:bulletblue: We have poor balance
:bulletblue: And don't we have an organ or two we don't really need?

We have opposable thumbs, and our intelligence. I'll give us that on the badass scale. But other than that I think we're pretty crummy.

Animals, such as dogs, cats, foxes, rabbits, mice and such(basically all four-legged animals) don't have(horizontally placed) shoulder blades(feel free to correct I'm almost positive I'm wrong), so whatever their head fits through, they're body will too. With the human body, there's no hope. Also, cats, I know, can shift their shoulders a couple of inches forward and backward. Y'know what that means? They can have one hell of a stride! Next time your cat is running around outside watch it(stalk it in it's everyday life) and you might be able to see what I'm talking about!

Our senses. All five of them. Suck. Compared to animals anyways. Now, I know and understand, that they may have dulled down because we have evolved so much, but we are inferior. We can't smell things over a long range, we can see things over a long range, or in different circumstances(the dark, underwater, etc.). We can't hear as well either. And well, I don't feel that taste is as important..lol sorry taste

So what's with the hair huh? it's worthless. Except for looks. It doesn't keep us warm! And don't try to argue that the hair on our head keeps us warm because we all wear hats to keep our head/ears warm during winter and such(lol im only joking you can argue with me). And I've got long hair!

I've always believed that the closer to the ground you are, the more balance you have. Weird thing to believe, but it's kinda common sense don't you think? I don't want to call anyone stupid. If you honestly never thought of that, don't worry. It only means you haven't given your brain the time to think about weird crap like this. AANNNYYWHO. We, as humans, have terrible balance. 'Cept for those who work on it and improve it(such as yoga..yoga-ers?). We walk clumsily on two feet. We freakin' blunder around on the planet with our two, ugly, clumsy feet.

feel free to discuss this with me! I'm always interested in your guys' feedback! :)

this is extremely random, but what if humans had tails? Like monkeys do, but....on humans. Also kinda like a furry. I've been thinking on this literally since i was a child :P :iconiloveitplz: that. would. be. cool. It might not be physically possible (or is it? :confused:) and irrational for humans to have tails considering that we walk vertically..... but still! :iconiloveyouplz:

I've heard of this thing where you can improve your senses. You do all these weird exercises.

But yeah, I would rather be and animal or something...

We evolved differently. We received a frontal lobe/cortex in our brain which allows us to be social, civilized and reasonable. It's everything that makes us conscious and human. Because we evolved in that direction, we slowly grew out of our "nature" state of survival. Animals eat sleep and mate, there's no true emotion, because there's no part of their brain structure that allows for it. So while we're not a survival species in the traditional sense, we did gain an upper hand on the rest of nature's creatures in our dominance of the food chain. We are the champion predator. We achieved this because of our brain, not because of our stature.

Well, most of the reason that humans have all these "issues" (patches of hair, unused organs, frail senses, etc.) is because at one point in our evolution, we DID use all of it. However, over our stages of evolution, we developed tools. This started the loss of our outstanding traits because they weren't used as much.

Later on down the road, we started building machines, quickening the loss of our traits as we stopped using them. The primary reason this stage was faster is primarily because most of those machines were designed for farming and hunting, making food more readily available, and lessening the struggle to get it. This made survival easier, and pretty much eliminated any need for the traits we'd evolved with.


You can even see the changes from the most recent explosion of human ingenuity:
In the 40's-50's, the working class of the American populace was in considerably decent shape. The machinery then was all manually-operated, and took a good bit of physical strength to operate. The only health problems were either severe or hereditary in most cases.

Skip to today, and the USA is now trying to make manufacturing as close to completely automated as possible. Most machines need only a button to function now, and heavy lifting is done by machine. Today's most common health problems are obesity, diabetes, and similar problems.

It all falls back to the simple doctrine; use it or lose it. We didn't use it, so we lost it.

I can't disagree with your opinion, but I can at least explain why we seem so useless in nature's hierarchy.

Human ingenuity has crippled its natural dominance in the animal kingdom.

Where we once were a lot like bears, we're not so dangerous unarmed anymore. On the flipside, the things we've engineered (knives, firearms, etc) generate more offensive power than natural evolution can.


So, we're built weak and awkward, but our technology is what puts us ahead and cripples us at the same time.

Also, even cats are not born with their awesome sense of balance and grace; just like us, they have to learn. It's just a little simpler for them to pick it up.

So, dislike the human body as you may, but don't condemn us all just because you can't balance. I've yet to find something besides ill-will and bacteria that comes to you without your effort.
