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.
I was worried there were gray people until I realized that means ‘no data’ Unless that’s where gray faced tumblr anons come from?
not just followers, everyone.
I’m here if any of you need to talk<3
The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.
Exactly. Which is why I’ll reblog this one.
I had to rewatch this a few times since its such a short shot, but I love how Tywin’s immediate reaction once he realizes that Joffrey is about to die is to rush to Tommen’s side and shield him from watching it.
Yeah, I know some of you think he has his own motives and that he doesn’t really care for anyone on a personal level, but I don’t know. Seems to me that Tywin wanted to protect Tommen on a personal and emotional level. After all, Tommen (and Myrcella, but shes at Dorne and unavailable at the moment) is probably his only descendant who hasn’t done anything to embarrass Tywin or simply pissed him off.
When Joffrey is dying tywin immediately goes to cover tommen. Come on if that’s not proof he cares about his family idk what is!
This scene made me like Tywin. Sure, he might of been doing it because hes the Protector of House Lannister and Tommen was now the new king, but I feel like there was something more to it than that. After all, Tommen (and Myrcella, but she isn’t there) is his only descendant who isn’t a failure in his eyes. Tommen hasn’t done anything yet to piss him off. And theres Joffrey (the lil shit), dying right infront of Tommen in a nightmarish way and Tywin probably doesn’t want Tommen to be scared for life after witnessing it, so he goes to cover Tommen.
At least, thats what I think.
