Stumpy the orca, screenshot from the BBC. Stumpy here is a Norwegian orca with an injury that has stunted her growth (she’s an adult, but the size of a calf) and prevents her from swimming properly. She can’t hunt, and yet she’s survived all these years because other orcas take care of her, sharing their food. And not just her own direct family, she’s been seen being taken care of by five different groups. We often think of such behavior as something exclusive to humans, so it really makes you reconsider how we view animals, humanity, and whether we might be more alike than we thought.
"If you want to understand a society, take a good look at the drugs it uses. And what can this tell you about American culture? Well, look at the drugs we use. Except for pharmaceutical poison, there are essentially only two drugs that Western civilization tolerates: Caffeine from Monday to Friday to energize you enough to make you a productive member of society, and alcohol from Friday to Monday to keep you too stupid to figure out the prison that you are living in."
