He Entered What Is Called A Dead Session
This qualifies as 8oth a null and void session, 8ut is even less than either of those. Compared to a typical session, it is almost unrecogniza8le.

World’s languages traced back to single African mother tongue: scientists.
New Zealand researchers have traced every human language — from English to Mandarin — back to an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
Scientists say they have traced the world’s 6,000 modern languages — from English to Mandarin — back to a single “mother tongue,” an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
New research, published in the journal Science, suggests this single ancient language resulted in human civilization — a Diaspora — as well as advances in art and hunting tool technology, and laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures.
The research, by Quentin Atkinson from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, also found that speech evolved far earlier than previously thought. And the findings implied, though did not prove, that modern language originated only once, an issue of controversy among linguists, according to the New York Times.
Before Atkinson came up with the evidence for a single African origin of language, some scientists had argued that language evolved independently in different parts of the world.
Atkinson found that the first populations migrating from Africa laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures by taking their single language with them. “It was the catalyst that spurred the human expansion that we all are a product of,” Atkinson said, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Atkinson traced the number distinct sounds, or phonemes — consonants, vowels and tones — in 504 world languages, finding compelling evidence that they can be traced back to a long-forgotten dialect spoken by our Stone Age ancestors, according to the Daily Mail.
Atkinson also hypothesized that languages with the most sounds would be the oldest, while those spoken by smaller breakaway groups would utilize fewer sounds as variation and complexity diminished.
The study found that some of the click-using languages of Africa have more than 100 phonemes, or sounds, whereas Hawaiian, toward the far end of the human migration route out of Africa, has only 13, the Times reported. English has about 45 phonemes.
The phoneme pattern mirrors the pattern of human genetic diversity as humans spread across the globe from sub-Saharan Africa around 70,000 years ago.

This gives me LIFE from people who insist all languages (ALL no matter what) derive from latin bases.

Reblogging this for three reasons:
1) It’s awesome and worth knowing
2) It makes sense when you think about, you know, the whole history of human development (from a NOT white supremacist perspective at least)
3) To add that if anyone ever tries to say that all languages are derived from Latin [insert choked sound of disbelief and anger] you can inform their ignorant (probably racist) asses of this: Latin, as far as languages go, is an INFANT. It’s part of a subset of Indo-European languages and MOTHERFUCKER EVEN ENGLISH ISN’T ONE OF ITS DERIVATIVES. (French, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, and Portuguese are, as well as lots of their related languages and dialects, that’s it.) Latin isn’t even remotely old enough to be a mother language. It’s like saying alpacas were the original dinosaurs or some bullshit.

HUH! You dont FUCKING SAY?
WILL YOU LOOK THE FUCK AT THAT! 

Not surprising, but this is cool information!

No shit!

  • tumblr staff: hey guys we've just added this new feature to the site, isn't it great?
  • xkit guy: here's the extension to get rid of this one

August 06 2014, 05:32 AM

  • DC: Wonder Woman is too difficult to find a movie audience for-
  • Marvel: YO YOU LIKE BLACK WIDOW? HERE SHE IS IN THE NEXT CAPTAIN AMERICA MOVIE WITH A TON OF SCREENTIME AND MAJOR ASSKICKING SKILLS
  • DC: We can't allow the lesbians in Batwoman to get married in the comic, sorry.
  • Marvel: HEY GUESS WHAT WE'RE GONNA FEATURE A GAY WEDDING ON THE COVER OF AN X-MEN ISSUE
  • DC: The new direction for storytelling needs to be dark, gritty, mature and cynical.
  • Marvel: DUDE CHECK IT OUT LOKI GOES SPEED DATING IS THAT NOT THE BEST SHIT EVER
  • DC: After years of rumors, the Superman/Batman movie is finally coming, but with a new actor and suit for Batman and MAYBE a cameo from Wonder Woman.
  • Marvel: PHASE 2 MOTHERFUCKERS EVERYONE IS IN EVERYONE'S MOVIE AND THERE AIN'T NO STOPPIN US NOW
  • DC: We can try to add maybe one or two 'people of color' to our lineup...maybe...
  • Marvel: NEW MS MARVEL THAT'S MUSLIM AMERICAN, BITCHES.
  • DC: We feel no problem with Batman's vengeful personality being like wet cardboard.
  • Marvel: NEW LATINA GHOST RIDER WHO SEEKS VENGEANCE WHILE TAKING HIS AWEET LIL BRO FOR ICE CREAM
  • DC: We can't mention any superhero titles in our movies, that's ridiculous.
  • Marvel: FUCK YEAH YOU WANT A RACOON VOICED BY BRADLEY COOPER WITH A GIANT GUN? YOU WANT VIN DIESEL PLAYING A TREE? AMY FUCKING POND PLAYING A SEXY BALD SPACE PIRATE? HERE YOU FUCKERS GO
  • DC: Our fanbase is mostly white males, I'm sure our focus is-
  • Marvel: NEW SHE HULK LINE WHERE SHE GOES TO COURT THEN SAVES NEW YORK
  • DC: Wait-
  • Marvel: NEW FEMALE THOR
  • DC: I didn't-
  • Marvel: NEW BLACK CAPTAIN AMERICA
  • Marvel: TAKE ALL THIS COOL SHIT MARVEL BE OUTIE
  • Marvel: PEACE
  •  -------
  •  The real conversation, not by a biased Marvel fanboy that has no clue what DC has done..
  • DC: You mean even after you've pumped Black Widow, she still can't star in a movie even though every other character you've introduced can appear in a movie?
  • Marvel: Well umm...
  • DC: Not to mention Avengers only had ONE female character and you have thus far a single female hero in your entire Cinema Universe, and you're bitching at us about Wonder Woman? Really? Wonder Woman had a TV show and a movie already.. Name one female character you've had that's had either? None.
  • Marvel: Well.. we had a GAY WEDDING on the cover of Astonishing X-Men!
  • DC: you mean the lowest selling X-Men comic? Awesome. Not to mention that you had Northstar marry the character you guys created SOLELY to be his boyfriend and never once did anything to develop him as a character in any way, so your gay marriage is a huge sham. Also, we did it first. Apollo and Midnighter are married and have been members of Stormwatch and Authority. Oh and Bunker our new teen character? Also married. Oh and The Movement had more LGBTQ characters than you have in your entire UNIVERSE, but you guys cornered the market on gay diversity with your one stunt gay marriage right? Oh and btw, we're not against gay marriage. We don't want any of our heroes married, so we don't have to One More Day them.
  • Marvel: But But but We've got HAPPY COMICS!
  • DC: Yeah.. SUperhero comics. Meanwhile, we've had a Western that's lasted 3 years. We've had War comics, Sword and Sorcery comics, magic, science, and tons of different things. You've still only done superhero comics. Congrats. Oh and we have humor titles, you just didn't read them.
  • Marvel: But WE HAVE GOOD MOVIES!
  • DC: And we have good TV, animated series, animated movies, games, comics, books, while you're still rocking gimmicks and great movies. So congrats on FINALLY getting some media that we haven't dominated yet.. oh wait, we did years ago.
  • Marvel: MS MARVEL IS A MUSLIM!
  • DC: Ok.. the new Green Lantern is a Muslim. Dr. Fate is also a Muslim (Ben-Hassin). Congratulations. Where's Dust again, you know.. you're first Muslim superheroine that you've completely ignored for the last several years and done nothing with?
  • Marvel: We have a LATINA (which means female.. Latino is male) Ghost Rider that's really a dude!
  • DC: And we have Vibe and Blue Beetle, both of which have appeared and do appear on TV. Your Latina (sic) Ghost Rider hasn't appeared in anything beyond the comics.
  • Marvel: WE HAVE ROCKET RACCOON
  • DC: Nice.. You mean Rocket because he now hates to be called a raccoon even though all through his entire history he has, but now he doesn't. And he's an absolute jerk now. So yeah? We have Captain Carrot and the entire Zoo Crew and they predate your Rocket Raccoon. You're only trumpeting Rocket b/c you're owned by Disney.
  • Marvel: SHE-HULK! AND FEMALE THOR!
  • DC: Harley Quinn (currently highest selling female lead title on the market), Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Batwoman, Supergirl, Catwoman, Katana, Pandora, Worlds' Finest, Birds of Prey, We've had several female lead titles and have had them for years. Glad you're FINALLY catching up. Oh and all our our ladies stand on their own, they don't need to sub in for a male hero while he's temporarily out.
  • Marvel: AFRICAN AMERICA CAPTAIN AMERICA! YEAH!
  • DC: Umm Ok.. We have: Mister Terrific, Static, Batwing (both Lucas and David), Steel, and we recently introduced our FOURTH (yes Fourth) Black Superman Val-Zod in Earth-2. So glad you can finally play ball with us. Now can you stop acting like you're the masters of diversity because.. You're not.
  • Addendum: Don't forget the Batfamily, which has more female heroes and more racial diversity historically and currently than pretty much any other group of comic heroes save possibly the X-Men. Barbara Gordon, a paraplegic that still kicks ass, Cassandra Cain, functionally mute and illiterate (at first) yet still better than you (oh, and she's Asian too), Stephanie Brown, Damian Wayne, David Zavimbe, Luke Fox, Helena Bertinelli, Selina Kyle, Harper Row, Renee Montoya, Kathy Kane (Jewish and lesbian), ...oh, and don't forget Bilal Assieh/Nightrunner, an Algerian-French Sunni Muslim who's the Batman of Paris.
