What is your most disturbing fun fact?

Poor babies.

Prairie dog mothers guard their young in a group because if left alone, mothers will eat the competing young so that their children don't have to share as much food.

Sh*t, hamsters will eat their whole litter themselves just so they don't have to be bothered with motherhood. Rodents are brutal.

There HAS to be a better way.

Falcon breeders let birds f*ck their heads.

Many bird species acquire their sexuality through sexual imprinting. They are interested in partners who look similar to their parents. If they are raised by a human instead, they will be sexually attracted to humans, but not their own species.

HieronymusFrosch

Nope.

When a pregnant woman dies, relaxation of muscles and buildup of gasses mean the fetus is sometimes expelled from the body a few days after death. Sometimes at speed.

That's one way to celebrate.

A gorilla AGGRESSIVELY masturbates after winning a fight with another gorilla

With just their thumb and forefinger, because gorillas have the smallest penises of all primates.

Hungry boys.

Rabbits are designed to eat continuously. They need their body volume in dry roughage daily, or their GI system shuts down. If a rabbit doesn't eat for 12 hours, it's an emergency, and they must be force fed. At 24 hours they go into GI stasis, and even with intervention they can die.

Sounds painful.

Female spotted* hyenas have a 'pseudo-penis'.

Yes, they give birth through it.

Yes, that's exactly as painful and dangerous as it sounds.

LittleGreyThor

Neat.

The location of the serial killer H.H. Holmes' infamous 'Murder Castle', located at 63rd and Wallace St in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago, is now a US Post Office.

Gross.

A male blue whale ejaculates roundabout 10 litres of semen at a time, most of which goes into the sea.

So I have this concept I call "Emotional Velociraptors" - they're the people that stay in your life testing your fences for weak spots after you've set a boundary.

I love movies. Who doesn't?

Film has been leaving an impression on our lives for over a century.

Some of the things we remember most are the images. The shots that seem otherworldly.

How does the director and the DP figure it all out? How do they see the colors?

I've seen some shots that have left me breathless.

It's all genius.

Redditor dilapidatedbunghole wanted to talk about the beauty of cinema, by asking:

"What is the most aesthetically pleasing movie you've ever seen?"

How high was God or whoever when they designed the human body? Clearly they needed a crash course in anatomy.

The body is amazing and resilient, but it can also be a hot mess.

Why are so many areas susceptible to pain? Like, one bad fall on a knee and you could be hobbled for life.

They should be more bulletproof. And the eyes, why so fragile when a wild eyelash gets caught in a blink?

So many questions. If the body was intended to last ten decades or so, it should be a bit more bionic.

Redditor MrBowls wanted to get into details about anatomy and it's issues, they asked:

"What’s the worst designed part of the human body?"
