Here’s an interesting fact: 
Babies learn to spot a red sticker placed on their forehead by looking through the mirror at ages 18 - 24 months. Chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans, dolphins, elephants, and magpies have also been said to pass this test, 
This is called the Gordon Gallup’s classic mirror self-recognition test.
This lead a group of colleagues in the Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness to assert that “the weight of evidence indicates that humans are not unique in possessing the neurological substance that generates consciousness” 

Non human animals are conscious beings, in other news: water is wet.

30 years of life as a Human...

  • ...and I'm tired.
  • Also I'm excited for the amount of bullshit I will drop from this point forward.

"The quality of people willing to serve has been declining rapidly," the U.S. Army Recruiting Command’s commanding general says

Approximately 71% of the 34 million 17-to-24-year-olds in the U.S. would not qualify for military service because of reasons related to health, physical appearance and educational background, according to the Pentagon.

The ineligible typically includes those who are obese, those who lack a high school diploma or a GED, convicted felons, those taking prescription drugs for ADHD and those with certain tattoos and ear gauges, the Wall Street Journal reports, though some requirements can be waived.

Only 1% of young people are both “eligible and inclined to have conversation with” the military about possible service, according to the Defense Department.

1% huh? But let’s have a conversation about this. Society has been guided in this direction and now you have your population of malnutritioned, obese, and uneducated. None of them want anything to do with your war machine, and you’re upset?
