Why are the walls melting

hey there Im travis, just do what makes you happy, and try not to worry so much. oh and try to be a good person.


If you don’t like me, fine, I don’t care. But don’t fucking lead me on telling me that you like me and all this shit and even mess around with me only to tell me a few days later that you’re not even interested in me anymore. Tired of this shit, fuck everyone that does that.

Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.

Thiiiiiiis, people, thiiiis!

1. Kill alpha male types
2. Achieve world peace

Got it.

I’ve actually read a lot of Sapolsky’s work.  He’s one of my favorite scientists in the neuro/socio world.

I just watched the documentary and there is so much more about the troop that isn’t in this photoset—not only does the troop have a culture of little aggression and greater cooperation, but any incoming jerk baboons learned within a few months that their shitty behaviour was in no way acceptable, that the troop only rewarded sociability, and they changed accordingly. 

If effin’ baboons can learn this there’s pretty much no reason to believe that our only option in dealing with assholes is to just ignore their behaviour and let it continue.
