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.

Learned about this in Anthropology 😍

Important GISHWHES Thoughts

Guys please listen to this! It is really important that for gishwhes we not all go to the page, please only send one team member to the list! ·

When the list goes live, assign only one of your team-mates to log in and get it. Usually, when it drops, thousands upon thousands are going to that exact page, and that page typically crashes. To help avoid this, cut down the amount of traffic by only having one team member go to the official page and retrieve it. When he/she has, have that person copy the list and then paste it into a google doc and share it with the group, or paste it on a typical word/pages document and email it to the group. Discuss who is going to venture into the items page, and how they’re going to share it with the team before hand. When that person does get the list, make sure he/she is ready even before the clock reaches zero. Your best bet to avoid crashes is to wait until the exact moment the clock reached it’s end, and then quickly refresh the page. If every team only has one person in the group visit the site, it could stop the crashes altogether

do you ever think about the judges for the triwizard tournament trying to figure out who to kidnap for the second task

like they’re all just sitting in dumbledore’s office and karkaroff goes “well word on the street says that krum has a crush on that granger girl”
