This video, “The Science Of Cute,” is basically the most “duh” thing ever if you’re someone who has had a lifelong interest in both evolutionary biology and, um, adowable wittle kittens and such, but as an excuse to look at a bunch of cute things while also “learning,” it can’t be beat:

I still maintain my adamant stance that adult pandas are NOT CUTE because they’re so obviously DIRTY AND STAINED and bad-smelling-looking, but even “science” disagrees with me on that one. Enjoy your pandas, crazy world (well, while you can, mwahaha!) (Via Urlesque.)

  1. What pedomorphisis means to me is PEDOBEAR. jesus christ, this is the internet you’re talking about, asshole.

  2. pedomorphosis sounds so wrong

  3. Pedomorphosis is a pedophile dressed as a power ranger to attract children
    Also, baby humans aren’t cute but other baby animals are.

    Is it bad that I responded much more to the kittens than the baby? Are my evolutionary responses screwed up?

    The baby was the lamest of the bunch. I would have swatted that thing aside just to get to the kitten. Hmm… maybe to prevent baby stealing? To make sure we love our own kids the most?

    That video does not know how evolution works. A preference for cuteness will not make you more likely to survive to reproductive age, being cute will. We evolved cute features. duh.

  7. Dear Lindsay,

    “Bad-smelling-looking” is my favorite phrase I heard today.

    Your pal,
