Sophie & Dave will discuss how the chemical we breathe out in cinema can determine movies classification, sexual climax as an alternative decongestant for a blocked nose, how human evolve to grow beard as a defense mechanism to punching and hanging a rhino by its feet as a mean of transporting the animal

They measured the force and energy absorbed by our bone composite underneath the hair and skin that you’ve described. And they found that the fully furred samples could absorb more energy than those plucked and sheared samples, suggests that the hair is doing something.
Because these animals aren’t going to be breathing properly and because they’re going to be hyperventilating and not have enough oxygen and have too much carbon dioxide, The question is can we maximize those things by maneuvering animal into a position that is the best position for those things?
