The Titanoboa, is a 48ft long snake dating from around 60-58million years ago. It had a rib cage 2ft wide, allowing it to eat whole crocodiles, and surrounding the ribcage were muscles so powerful that it could crush a rhino. Titanoboa was so big it couldn’t even spend long amounts of time on land, because the force of gravity acting on it would cause it to suffocate under its own weight.
I’m so glad they aren’t around
omg me too. I’m scared enough of 26 ft long anacondas. I’m so happy Megalodons, those giant sharks, aren’t alive either
Praise natural selection
I remember watching Walking with Beasts or something similar, or some British tv show about evolution
The subject was something like a 12 foot long water scorpion
I was so startled by its sudden appearance and narration that I yelped: “12 fucking feet?!?! I’m fucking glad it’s extinct!”
Dude, prehistory was home to some fucking TERRIFYING creatures. For some reason, everything back then was enormous and scary. Extinction doesn’t always have to be a bad thing!
And Poppy, what you saw was an arthropod known as Pterygotus (it was actually featured in Walking With Monsters). Not only was it as big (or maybe even bigger) than your average human, it had a stinger the size of a lightbulb. REALLY glad that bugger isn’t around anymore.
Also, Megalodon deserves to be mention again, because just hearing its name makes me want to never be submerged in water ever again.
GOD, I HATE THIS POST. HOW DO WE EVEN KNOW THAT SHIT ISN’T STILL AROUND? LURKING? EVOLVING? WE DON’T. WE DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT SHIT DOWN THERE. THE OCEAN IS A PRIMEVAL HELLSCAPE NIGHTMARE AND WE ALL JUST DIP OUR STUPID FRAGILE UNPROTECTED FETUS BODIES AROUND THE EDGES OF IT LIKE THAT’S NORMAL. FUCK THE OCEAN.
The reason things got so big years ago is because the average annual temperature was extremely high. At least 91 degrees Fahrenheit, that is ten degrees higher than the average today (which doesn’t sound like much, but believe me, it was a lot). Since reptiles are cold blooded, their body temperature is different with their environment, and since the environment was perfect for them at that time, they could grow to be massive creatures. Snakes weren’t the only ones growing to extreme lengths 60 million years ago, there were bugs the size of humans, and there were crocodiles nearly the same size of Titanoboa. Don’t believe me?

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really t ired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!! NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE… Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.

EVERYONE, THIS IS NOT A SAFE PROCEDURE.
THIS IS A CHAIN EMAIL THAT STARTED IN 1999. THE LINK ABOVE IS TO SNOPES AND IT COVERS EVERYTHING ON THIS TOPIC.
"Dr. Richard O. Cummins, Seattle’s director of emergency cardiac care, explains that cough CPR raises the pressure in the chest just enough to maintain some circulation of oxygen-containing blood and help enough get to the brain to maintain consciousness for a prolonged period. But cough CPR should be used only by a person about to lose consciousness, an indication of cardiac arrest, he cautions. It can be dangerous for someone having a heart attack that does not result in cardiac arrest. Such a person should call for help and then sit quietly until help arrives, he says.”
Basically, without proper medical supervision, this coughing method could kill you. It isn’t recommended by any doctors or physicians to do this if you’re having a heart attack. Rather, it is recommended that you chew up and swallow Aspirin during the early stages on a heart attack.
Aspirin has can prevent blood platelets from sticking together, and doctors believe that taking Aspirin as a heart attack begins can prevent a clot from getting bigger.
If you are ever experiencing a heart attack on your own and have Aspirin on hand, chew it up (because as soon as it hits the stomach and can dissolve then it will go where it needs to and start working), swallow it, and call for help.

I FELT SO SORRY FOR HER IN THIS MOMENT.
like ok from the day she got on the hogwarts express, people were making fun of her and she’s never viewed as pretty or attractive until the moment in the first gif.
and because ron is fuckin jealous, he makes her feel like shit and ugh it’s like her one night of being someone else is just shattered and and and
WHY DID YOU D O THAT
I get really annoyed with people who are like “well she could have asked ron first instead of screaming at him to not use her as a last resort.”
well… no. She was asked by krum right away. She wanted to go with him. She wasn’t going alone and moaning that Ron hadn’t asked her. Her objection was to being treated like she should have been available to him, and being treated like she was lying about having a date. And who the fuck wouldn’t be offended by somebody thinking that they’re so undesirable that they made up a date?
this post actually made me almost cry no joke
What really gets me is that Ron literally blows her off by saying “girls get scary as they get older” and as concerned as Harry may be for her, he doesn’t speak up (most likely because he is just relieved that Ron is his friend again). No one does.
Hermione, who was so excited and so into Viktor and so fucking happy to share her excitement with her two BEST FRIENDS and Ron destroys that and doesn’t care. She is left sitting there, miserable and alone.
Just like Ron joked she would be.
