BIOLOGY RAAAAAGE by Kaxen6 BIOLOGY RAAAAAGE by Kaxen6
...based on true stories.

I'm tempted to punch every person who categorizes animals into groups they don't belong. Ape = monkey is probably the least grievous to my ears. But Whale = fish drives me batshit.

And I guess it's not so bad when a little kid does it (still learning all them nouns and whatever), until you notice the parent is telling them that whales are fish...

...an okapi is a relative of the giraffe and has horns, so the girl who thought an okapi was a cross between a zebra and a horse was clearly a moron.


...okapis can clean their own eyes with their blue tongue. O_O


I like biology (as long as it's not at the microscopic level. I refuse to acknowledge anything too tiny to see with the naked eye as interesting).

...did you know that Crested Screamers have spurs on their wings for stabbing their enemies?

>_> I thought the bird looked stupid until I noticed it has the power to stab me... now I respect them...

Also orcas are dolphins not whales.

My other peeve is nonindicative names... since apparently pilot whales and killer whales are both dolphins... And then you can also call them blackfish even though they're not fish (though I've never heard anyone use the term until that movie came out). DAMN EVERYTHING.

Okapi's are actually related to giraffes.

This drives me mad too. DX Especially in class, there's this guy who always shouts out things, like 'OMG IT'S A SHARK' when it's usually a swordfish or something.

/And/ horses. I draw a lot of horses, even in school, and people are always looking over and saying, 'oh wow, a pony!'

IT'S A HORSE. NOT A PONY. LEARN THE DIFFERENCE OR GET OUT OF MY FACE. XD

But yes. I also hate parents who take their children to the zoo and say things like, 'oh, I think he wants you to pet him'. e.o It's. A. Tiger/Lion/Penguin/Leopard/Zebra/Chimpanzee/etc.It does /not/ want you to pet it, little child. It would probably rip you to shreds or trample you were it not in that exhibit there. >.>

And this dear children, is why we need a zombie apocalypse. Idiot removal.

Although this could just be pent up rage of spending my entire childhood studying entomology and arachnology, only to have some asshole look over at a fully accurate paper model of a praying mantis of my creation...and think it's a grasshopper. And I'm just gonna stop ranting while I'm ahead....

I SO totally understand this. The joys of being a biology major.
