Re: That's how evolution works
It could be argued that mauling the girl would be a poor evolutionary choice since they'd risk being put down.

In reality, hippos are scared of drying out so if their path to the water is blocked then they will trample everything in their way to get back there. A mature hippo weighs as much as a modern car so if the blockage is a human being then it will quickly resemble a car crash victim.
Given that pandas will eat meat in the wild, on the rare occasion that they can get it, I wonder if the real problem is that we keep feeding them on the starvation diet they've become accustomed to rather than trying to teach them to enjoy a beef wellington. Get them used to the idea and they'll have the legs off that kid next time.
The Haynes manual never told me how to reach down inside the car body and retrieve the spanner I lost while following its instructions to the letter.
Still I tended to find them as much better than the manufacturer's guides. I think I actually once bought a car that came with one in lieu of the latter.
Let's be clear here, if she was aiming for 50% (which is quite plausible) she could either open with a demand for 50% and get shot down, or open with a demand for 70% and "begrudgingly" lower it to her real target of 50% which her political opponents would paint as a victory for them.
That's how politics is done these days.
In order to go into space you must be in perfect physical health, so you can adapt to maneuvering around a spaceship with your hands, not being able to sense which way is up or down, breathing through one tube and pooping through another.
People with lifelong experience of maneuvering with their hands, who never could sense of up or down, who already regularly breathe or poop through tubes, those people need not apply.
Technically, the verb 'type' comes from exactly the same standard. In Middle English the word 'type' meant a symbol, most often a carved one, thus pressing carved (or moulded) symbols against paper to make words became typing. Though there was an intermediate stage where people set types into frames in order to print pages at a time which was known as typesetting.
Type meaning category came later and also referred to a symbol representing that category.
I have wondered for a while why people aren't actively making properly educational porn videos. Not learn-about-sex educational, something like this could be made into porn with very little change needed.
Sexy cancer is the new fetish.
Couple of years ago where I was living in the uk there was a (relatively for the area) massive invasion of bitey insects. I had a landlord inspection in the middle of it and apologised for the cobwebs explaining that I was trying to keep the flies under control by letting the spiders get established.
"Good idea!" said the landlord enthusiastically and the inspection proceeded without a hitch. I guess someone else had been bitten recently.
Put them both together and I've been there. Network professionals leaving a PFY instructions to refresh a network adapter that don't specify which of the adapters you do it to because to someone with 30 years experience the idea that a noob wouldn't get the right one becomes unthinkable.
Though what amazed me was how long it took to get someone qualified to push a button on the site.
Happy Blade Runner Year, one and all.
