  1. Wow, nice break down. How accurate is this do we know?

      It gives a source at the bottom but I did not source check it. When I write things myself, I always cross source at least three reliable sources. Unfortunately, I don’t always do that with reposts. I was caught embarrassed once when I posted ten mysteries that all turned out to be disproven hoaxes…

    I’m not sure of the accuracy as there’s no sources but It really kind of helps me relate to the actual state of the human as a being.
