                Food is not a desire. You could spend your half a million dollars on a few hundred cows and still need to beg for some proper land where you could milk them every day and give half the profit away

And if god forbid trucks go away, somehow I think there will still be plenty of food around, but it wont be so easy to get some

        You keep them in a tank alive like a lobster, and bring a large pot of water to the boil on your cooker, then you forget where you left the Coelacanth, wait for 66 million years and decide they must be extinct by now, determine from what scant memory of the fish you have that they were some sort of evolutionary-wonder walking fish with lungs, boast to all your friends about it, then find the tank of fish perfectly fine behind the sofa and realise they’re just regular fish after all. Then you carefully edit the Wikipedia article to remove all your ridiculous claims. Season with salt to taste.

        Coelacanth flesh has large amounts of oil, urea, wax esters, and other compounds that give the flesh a distinctly unpleasant flavor, make it difficult to digest, and can cause diarrhea. Their scales themselves secrete mucus, which combined with the excessive oil their bodies produce, make coelacanths a slimy food.[76] Where the coelacanth is more common, local fishermen avoid it because of its potential to sicken consumers.[77] As a result, the coelacanth has no real commercial value apart from being coveted by museums and private collectors.[78]

        Sorry to say this but there's a reason they're nearly extinct with only one species restricted to a couple shitty rocks off the coast of New Zealand. They already went extinct on the main land due to pressure from other lizards.

        Just like with ginkgos and other living fossils that can only live in highly specialized habitats. They are obsolete and can't keep up with more advanced species.

          New Zealand has many native lizards that tuataras did and do coexist with. Other lizards aren't what pushed them off of mainland NZ.

    Ailuropodinae is a subfamily of Ursidae that contains only one extant species, the giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) of China. The fossil record of this group has shown that various species of pandas were more widespread across the Holarctic, with species found in places such as Europe, much of Asia and even North America. The earliest pandas were not unlike other modern bear species in that they had an omnivorous diet but by around 2.4 million years ago, pandas have evolved to be more herbivorous.

      Why do people act like Nordics and Germanics are the most historically violent people on Earth? If you look at the Bantu expansion with their iron tools and crops, they turned Africa into a butcher shop. Kind of like how the ancestors of Germanics (I'd say paternal but a bunch of Scandinavians are I1) came into Europe with superior metallurgy (bronze) and agriculture (cattle) (also wagons) and raped everyone there to death. Bantus are fucking insane, even in the modern era. Look at the Mfecane or modern African states. Watch Africa: blood and guts, also pic related. Or the Chinese and their enormous wars with each other, you could say nordics were somehow better at violence due to being better organised but for most of history Han people had states with literacy, developed bureaucracy and world-class militaries while nordics were shitting in the woods, and they went to war hard. Polynesians also get an award for being hard fuckers par excellence, look at the new Zealand wars, the UK tried to send an army in to fuck with the Maoris because they kept getting their flagpoles chopped down and the Maoris hated the Anglo antichrist so much a few hundred of them was enough to repeatedly evade, humiliate and defeat hundreds of Anglo colonial troops.

      Humans are hard mofos in general.

        Also the Maoris independently completely independently invented trench warfare

        >look at the new Zealand wars

        At the time treaty was signed with maori there was maybe 80,000 maori and 2,000 europeans. Don't underestimate that the place was theirs. But by the end of these wars there was maybe 5000 tribal soldiers and 18000 professional british ones some of which had come from india afghanistan etc, as well as militia of settlers.

        Sometime when you are a tribal warrior and not a professional, you need to go home and grow some potatoes. That's what fucked them from maintaining a guerilla campaign longer than the 30 years they already did. But we all know what happened most of the land was settled by europeans and deals were made and those who didn't want to deal had their land taken by force where it was attractive and turned from literal swamps into some of the most productive pastures in the world

          As an NZ lurker, thanks for this interesting history lesson. I didn't know any of this. It's hard to believe that only 2000 Euros were in NZ during 1840, that's insane. And it's insane how I had ancestors come in during 1840, 1841, 1842, and later years in the 19th and early 20th centuries. I didn't know that colonisation here occurred so rapidly. Only 2000 in 1840??? I thought there would already be about 50,000 or so. Holy shit.

            I had some family arrive in 1840 too mate. 6 months on a ship, extra 2 days before they could get off while the tents were built, in the dead of winter. Down south.

            There's a lot of good books out there about these wars didn't really touch that area though. As well as what we know about the prior 30 years when they had bartered for muskets and fought among themselves and lost another initial 30 thousands or so. Its no wonder Maoris learned how to fight with muskets when they get a hold of them and go at it in their own way for 30 years and then another 30 on top both as more modern people rebelling against or fighting with the British empire
