In high school, we watched a documentary about foot-and-mouth disease. Disposing of the (already dead) infected animals involved a machine very much like this. Because of the rounded shape of a scull, the blades couldn't get purchase on the head, so the severed head just kept spinning on top of the blades until all the flesh had been pulled off.

I didn't eat meat for 2 years.

The worst part of those machines is you KNOW some poor soul has been thrown in there while alive at some point in history. We are too hosed up as a species for that to not have happened.

Don't be such a squid, bro


This is a wolverine. They are also known as skunk bears, nastycats or quickhatches, goddamn



My friend and I were curious why they were reputed to be such badasses, so we looked up some youtube videos and it quickly became my new favorite animal.

I saw a video of one attacking a bear who wandered into his area. I saw a video of a wolverine chasing off two fully grown wolves from a fresh kill and then chowing down. To paraphrase wikipedia: In another account, a wolverine attacked a polar bear and clung to its throat until the bear suffocated. Holy loving poo poo. These things weigh like 50 lbs. They're medium dog sized. If you were impressed by the honey badger then this is a hulked out version of that.

This is a loving badass critter and I can't wait to learn more about it.

There's a National Geographic documentary on Netflix about wolverines, they're loving insane. They tracked this one wolverine as it just ran over a mountain in deep snow like nothing, sprinting basically the entire time.

These fuckers take down deer and elk sometimes. They're known for backing down from nothing

I think I saw that. Wolverine running up one side, jump cut, wolverine running down the other side. I said "are you loving serious?" at my TV. Wonder if they're as crazy smart as honey badgers.

My roomate's father worked at a remote oil plant in northern Britsh Columbia, Canada. Said facility was ringed by a high voltage electric fence designed to keep bears away.

One day they noticed the fence was going haywire on their sensors. It turns out a wolverine had touched the fence. Each time it shocked him he attacked the fence, which shocked him, which triggered another attack.

This went on for about a solid hour before they had to just turn off the fence so the drat thing would leave.

That's an amazing story. In the animal world wolverines are like that psychotic knife carrying guy whistling and peeing in a dark alley. They're amazing to study and watch from afar, but everything about them tells you stay far the hell away.

All mustelids of any size are the most ludicrous loving killers. From Wolverines taking deer to tiny weasels killing hares and rabbits (through pet ferrets biting off appendages) mustelids are vicious killing machines that are built to bite either the front or back of the neck and suffocate/snap the spine of their prey.

In the Miocene there was a North American mustelid called the Megalictis which was pretty much a giant wolverine with a body mass of up to 60 kg and a length of about 7 feet, more than twice the size of the modern wolverine. Some people think it might have grown as large as a modern black bear.


Then over in late Miocene Kenya there was Ekorus ekakeran:

It's pretty much a weasel which was built like a leopard and was approximately the same size, standing 60cm (2 feet) tall at the shoulder. Just imagine how fast that fucker could run on those long legs.
