forget stocks, this is the really important news of the day https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/29/box-seat-scientists-solve-the-mystery-of-why-wombats-have-cube-shaped-poo
@balrogboogie I am delighted they've solved this mystery
@checkervest cross off one of the Great Mysteries of our day
@balrogboogie cube-shaped stonks
@Stoori stonk-shaped poo?
@balrogboogie this so called ”short squeeze” opens up in a completely new way now
@Stoori ahhhhh hahahaha
I’m sorry but:
‘... as well as the “complete nonsense” idea that wombats pat the faeces into shape after they deposit them.’
LMAOOOO what in the WORLD would ever. EVER. possess an animal to engage in such behaviour?!
And like... I want to be a fly on the wall at the meeting where someone introduced this as their hypothesis and did so with a straight face 😂🤣
@balrogboogie “The researchers also found that cube-shaped faeces on an eight degree slope rolled far less than spherical-shaped models.”
Thank god they’re doing the hard science so the rest of us can go on living
@balrogboogie we live in an amazing age. some jerk who died 50 years ago lived their whole life wondering why wombats shit out cubes but not us.
@balrogboogie I've been waiting for someone to start making jokes about shitting bricks...
