Mount Toba Eruption – Ancient Humans Unscathed, Study Claims � Anthropology.net

There is evidence that this eruption did not cause a bottleneck in human population. Although it is widely believed that the human population may have decreased to 10,000 or even 1,000 breeding pairs, scientists believe that tool making modern humans survived the event 70,000 years ago unscathed.

Twilight the first experience and a second look



When my friend Amanda asked me to go see the movie Twilight, I was ok with it. I had listened to the audiobook and I figured it was worth a shot. Little did I know that this little movie would make my stomach turn over. You see, I've got this black little heart...kinda. I grew up as a tomboyish girl and I've never been one to love romance movies...in fact like most of my guy friends I call them chick flicks. I had no idea...that Twilight...was a chick flick. (Did I mention I'm a little naive and slow on the uptake?) And I was also in a very depressive...excuse I am in a very depressive state of mind lately.

Anywhos so basically I went there expecting a pretty good movie with little romance...cause..I mean thats the impression I got from the audiobook...and reading the book. Well I get there and start watching it....my friend is literally sitting on the edge of her seat with this.....all worshipping grin on her face. Like she wishes SHE could be Bella. (Sorry Amanda but it's true....I glanced over to see if you were as repulsed as me.) Meanwhile, I'm sitting there...not let me rephrase that....laying there....as I had sank down as far in my seat as I could go cause I was sooo uncomfortable with the things that were going on in the movie. I mean I was bundled up cause it was cold, but I had my jacket pulled up cause I was trying desperately to hide the look on my face. If I could have taken a picture of myself at that moment I'm pretty sure it would have looked like this.
