Hm.... American Knowledge.... Hm.....
« on: March 02, 2003, 07:17:12 AM »
i was checking this american movie... and was alittle amazed when i heard this special short dialog... im quoting it right here...
Quote
A: let me ask you girls one question: if giraffes once had short necks like horses, why do they have long necks now?

B: because thousands of years ago, giraffes grew long necks in order to reach the foliage in high trees, foliage being their only food source, they adapted to the enviroment...

cwalker, engelrock, trauma?... is that statement correct?

Why Do Giraffes Have Long necks?
A long time ago it was a hot day just like any day on the African Plains. Giraffe was walking proudly on dried up grass.

"Oh, Oh, Oh what beautiful spots I have!" he yelled to the whole jungle. His spots were great, but he had a small, ugly neck. It looked like he didn't’t have a neck at all.

Cheetah was passing by so he heard Giraffe yelling. He came running to Giraffe and replied,  "Yeah, right, and I am Bill Clinton!"  Giraffe got carried away even though he knew Cheetah had better spots.

"Okay then tomorrow we will ask two animals, and they will tell us who has better spots."
 

"Fine," answered Cheetah knowing that he would win. After Cheetah left, Giraffe realized what a bad bet he had made so he bribed the two judges, Fox and Hyena.

The next day Giraffe led Cheetah to Hyena’s house. Giraffe knocked on the door.

"Who is there?" Hyena yelled from inside his house.

"Giraffe and Cheetah with a bet for you to settle. Can you please tell us which one of us has better spots?" Cheetah asked politely.

"Well, that’s an easy question," he said looking at Giraffe. "He does." Hyena pointed at Giraffe.

Cheetah knew something was wrong by the look on Hyena's face. Then they went to Fox’s house. He was drinking ice tea, and he said the same words Hyena had said.

After Giraffe left. Cheetah asked the Fox "What is wrong?"

The Fox said, "Nothing." Cheetah didn't fight about it because their parents were close friends, but he knew that Hyena would spill the beans. Hyena didn't say anything at first, but when Cheetah gave him a big piece of fresh meat, he told everything about how Giraffe had bribed him.

Cheetah got so mad that he ran to Giraffe's house very fast and gave him a hard punch in the jaw. Such a hard punch landed on Giraffe's jaw that after Cheetah left, Giraffe's neck was four feet long. From that day on Giraffes have long necks and that is how Giraffe long ago learned his lesson.

To tell you the truth, I really don't know... Sounds like a reasonable hypothesis. Could be so they could see predators or something...

This just looks like a pathetic attempt to show everybody how big your nuts are...

They didn't "grow" longer necks...The giraffes who, due to genetic variations, were born with longer necks were able to survive because they could eat the foliage located higher. Thus, they were able to survive and breed, while their shorter necked peers died out. This is generally how evolution is thought to work.

Not all Americans are idiots. I went to a top American university, and I found it interesting that the best and brightest from the rest of the world came to study with us. There may be comparable undergraduate programs in other developed countries, but at the graduate level not many universities outside of the US are on our level. With apologies to Jay-Z, we give Cambridge and Oxford their props, but that's where it stops =)

With that said, I do agree that the American education system doesn't do as good of a job of educating the general population as some other countries do. I got to know some of those aforementioned foreign students very well, and it seems that public schooling in other countries is much more comprehensive and stringent. But, it does irk me when people assume all Americans are morons...Generalizations are offensive and often incorrect. After all, isn't this why racism is bad?

BINGO

Do you really think Americans can't grasp the concept of evolution?

Darwin's travels and studies are taught in every High-School biology course.

I'd like to see his theory work and you not contribute to the gene pool. The human race will be a better off with less bitter, hypocritical, nitpickers like yourself.

You are REALLY fishing for anything and everything that makes America look bad mastero...

It's so obvious it isn't even funny.

You quoted a MOVIE. Last time I checked, there are better sources for a barometer of American Intelligence.

I'd really hate to be you. You seem so bitter and so eager to tear down a whole people every chance you get. What a pathetic existence.

hahah...i get this nit picking now


right lets address M&M first... if u want to produce midgets with long legs only dunk (kill?!) midgets with short ones.... over several 1000 years u'll have longer legged ones outside your criteria ;)

the (picky) point is... they didnt grow them, they evolved them.

lol.... 1 problem.... "midgets" with long legs would not remain midgets

but the rest of your conclusion is basicly what darwins theory is all about... the ones which fits best to the situation will survive... the others will die

im sorry for overestimating your knowledge... lemme break it down to the basics...

there are 2 theories...

1, darwins theory which is accepted by 99.8% of all scientists,
2, the "giraffes grows longer necks to reach"-theory which basicly means that an orgasm have the possibility to change their reproduction of DNA depending on it current situation and the problems its facing..., which would mean that midgets could grow longer legs to dunk... get it??


and if you wonder?.. yea.. im an educated fool...

Yeah I already know about those 2 theories...and dont be fooled theres LOTS OF theories...oh U maen those are the 2 most popular right  ::)

And I goto the 7th most competetive PUBLIC university in the US, so dont be givin me a biology lesson, or trying to sound smart (cuz in the posts u sound like pathetically trying to prove ur "high level of education") basically cuz no1 gives a shit

anyawy I think U need more English tought cuz U dont understand some stuff... and seem to be putting words in my mouth. Personally I agree with the evolutionary theory, so now lay off my nuts. And if U can successfully do that, then U might think of gettin off da US balls too...just get over the fact dat we're the strongest and only superpower in the world. 8-)
