There are plenty of obvious answers. Maybe there are no intelligent space aliens in our immediate cosmic vicinity. Perhaps they have never evolved beyond unthinking microbial slime or – based on our transmissions – aliens have concluded it is safer to stay away.

Who knew a crappy T-rex costume we once all dumped on would turn out to be one of the best things to happen to the internet? In this video Mark Gomez dons the inflatable dino suit and thrashes a jetski around a lake. The fact that he can still perform mid-air twists and flips without going extinct himself is beyond impressive.
There are currently over 60 major hydroelectric dam projects in the Amazon. The third largest project is the Belo Monte on the Xingu River, Brazil, which has already displaced 20,000 indigenous and riverine people. Aaron Vincent Elkaim documents the story of the Munduruku tribe, who are fighting against the industrialisation of this region.
David Sandberg of The University of Buffalo in New York and Linda Voss of the Peninsula Medical School in Plymouth, UK reviewed the evidence for a Napoleon complex in a study published in 2002. They concluded that "the psychological adaptation of individuals who are shorter than average is largely indistinguishable from others, whether in childhood, adolescence or adulthood."Still, what holds true for humans may not necessarily be the case for animals.In a study published in 2012, researchers lead by P.

The team found that the smaller males "attacked sooner and with greater intensity" than the larger ones.
So if small desert gobies can behave more aggressively than larger ones, could the same be true of dogs? Continue
