It's a balance between needing a big head for smarts and needing narrow hips to walk on two legs. Also why babies' skulls aren't fully fused at birth and are a little bit squishy.
* food goes down the same tube as air does towards the lungs
* the navel and where your balls dropped through are weak points and can lead to hernias
* wisdom teeth
* foot disorders
* breast and prostate tissue have a high chance of forming tumors
* carpal tunnel
* lumbar intervertebral disk damage, sciatica (hands are strong enough to pick shit up that your back isn't strong enough to pick up)

This is mainly related to diet and environment. There is an intrinsic tendency towards cancers in this area, but it's far overstated by how people live.
>* lumbar intervertebral disk damage, sciatica (hands are strong enough to pick shit up that your back isn't strong enough to pick up)
The spine actually has a pretty extreme capacity to bear loads, far beyond what a typical person will or can demand of it. This again is related to wear.
How about having reproductive tracts either directly tied to and/or extremely close to excretory tracts?
The vagina is extremely prone to infection and is literally 2 inches from your asshole. Certain UTIs for men can scar you so badly you never cum properly again or even even travel back down the vas deferens and sterilize you.
you are all fucking retarded
regardless of the entrance of your breath, both the food and air intake share a pathway (after the mouth/nose) before being separated between the esophagus and the trachea
clogged sinuses/mouth breathing regardless, there is always a choking hazard
>clogged sinuses/mouth breathing regardless, there is always a choking hazard
Yes. But if it were exclusively used for breathing, choking hazards would be much, much rarer. It doesn't matter that they split so much as where they end up and the fact that you cannot eat and breathe at the same time. Chances are someone will and pay the price and that shit is entirely unnecessary.
Natural thinking aids our immediate survival but not innovation to improve our quality of lives.
Common human is often too stupid to innovate, but their mind is naturally wired to just survive with what they have

Ami doin' it right?
>but their mind is naturally wired to just survive with what they have
Evolutionary advantage. In times of scarcity the brain goes into mass neurogenesis mode. Zero worries pertaining to our mode to survive.
>Common human is often too stupid to innovate
Read above fucktard. Humans find new ways to survive if that new mode of survival is necessary. Love ya

Fucking retarded. Also
>mothers shitting all over their children at birth when it's most important they be as clean and sterile after birth as possible
> only two sets of teeth for your entire life

Fuck Mother Nature, we should have perpetual supply of new teeth like sharks!
being in mouth and eyes doesn't always lead to sepsis as sepsis is specific to infiltration of the blood
i think it may be too much to try to get you to understand that there is something known as an honest marker and it is intended to make survival harder to take out the weak
the dehydration vomitting is less about being flawed and more about reaching that point causing your body to function wrong
this is sort of similar to saying "thats so weird that if someone blows your head off your body dies instead of trying to piece your head back together"
That has only come about with modernity. The low amounts of sugar we consumed in the past lowered the risk of infection significantly. Usually by the time your first set was falling out, you had possible tooth-loss anyway. It's the reason for wisdom teeth, because those teeth (the ones for chewing) tend to be the most worn out anyway.
>Tall bodies can't handle cold too well
>Scandinavia has some of the tallest people in general
It's not even because foreigners. Only some years the mans ordinary height was around 164 cm, and that due to malnourishment and hard work.

Nigger, how many mammals run on two legs?
For all our flaws, we're the long-distance running champs of the planet.
Over the course of 8-12 hours, a human in decent shape can run down any other animal on the planet.

>>>slower than any other mammal that run on two legs
Do you want to be one of those 4legged niggers that have to use their 4 limbs for traction? Or the superior taxa that has specialiced limbs for tool -making?
Horses were bioengineered for the specific task of running, fishes... welll, what kind of fish? There are waterniggers that can go from continent to continent like nothing, but only following the currents though.

We DO outrun horses, take a look at this:
And this is only talking about marathons (42k), imagine what can we do with longer distances (which by the way are ran by tens of thousands of people, so it's not like a superhuman feat, with enough training anybody should be able to run 80k, and one would think that if your food depends on you running that distance, that should provide enough training).
>>Be bipedal but keep vagina oriented foward.
>>All babys have to do a 90º sick flip.
Uhhhh.... the vagina is oriented downward.
And "keep"? Our quadraped ancestors had rear-facing vag's.
FYI: When I was a little kid, I thought the vag pointed forward since the penis does, and the two were meant to hook together.
I'm still kind of confused about why missionary is the "default" position.
Seems like we're built for cowgirl.
We can really outrun a horse in 100 miles. It takes about 24h for a horse to run that, whereas humans can do it around 12-13h, say 20 hours to not only include top top athletes and you have a 4 hour advantage that is more than significant.
Check mate horses.
>Uhhhh.... the vagina is oriented downward.
The labia maybe, but the actual hole where the baby has to go is not.
We get our well developed asses handed to us by other bipeds though.
Weirdly most of them are australian, kangaroos and large ground birds, specifically the ostrich but also emus and presumably the cassowary are exemplary long distance runners
Ugh! These oxygerites with their reactive oxygen species running amok are just annoying.
>muh higher oxidation
>muh energy bonds
>muh versatile element.
While you are getting old and rotting from the inside, Im substituting all my oxygen with nitrogen like it was meant to be in the early days of Earth and in solidarity to the historical tragedy that was commited when some racists started using oxygen and killed some peacefull bacteria that dindunuffin with pollution that still predates our Earth today.
Im sure is hard at first, we must all swicth to nitrogen before is too late and die.
Is this what you're looking for?
A lot of that sounds legit and familiar from my biology courses. But it's been a few years, so I'd also like to know how true all of this stuff is.
There's a lot of speculation in there though, which is common in evolutionary biology. "X wants to do Y, so it evolved Z" even if there's no concrete proof that Y caused Z to develop. Regardless I'm gonna tell this to my pregnant collegues from now on.
It's a compromise. Our larynx needs to be lower in order to produce speech. However, in most other mammals, choking is comparatively rare due to the position of the larynx. However, this means that they are unable to produce complex sounds.
First, I don't think that it is that much, though I could not find it. Maybe it is actually half.
Second, there is a distinctive correlation between need for glasses and higher intelligence. So ok, it sucks, but we have our brain to kind of make up for shitty vision.
>hurr durr let's take basically all your senses, your only method of ingesting food, your fucking brain, and put it in a bobble-shaped piece of flesh attached to the rest of your body by a thin neck, oh and by the way your major blood vessels and central nerve bundle are right on the outside of this neck and if they get damaged it's game over
Why is this so common? What's the advantage?
For food it's using gravity to pass it through your system. For other senses it's proximity to brain, and I guess it helps the other senses to work from a position of height and/or being at the front of the body (can see farther/faster, can smell gases that are lighter than air better/quicker, can hear from farther away, etc.), so it makes sense for the brain to develop close by if shorter nerve connections are favoured. Then you basically take that formula and apply billions of corrections until you get the clusterfuck that is the final release candidate of the human body.
so... you think diarrhea is a physiological response and not an illness?
are you retarded?
also, if you didn't throw up, you'd be worse off.
Face it OP, your stomach is more clever than you are

Let's put on our thinking caps and take a trip to the rain forest! Vamanos!
Bienvenidos! Can you spot the tiger devouring the native?
That's right! There's the tiger devouring the disabled native!
>And testicles should be on the inside damnit.
External testicles are a kind of intelligence test.
If you can't keep your balls safe, you shouldn't be trusted with the safety of a child.
Developing a scrotum is evolutionarily more probable than developing heat-resistent sperm(which would be very complicated). And the solution obviously works, or we wouldn't be here.
>time means nothing to you so you end up with no motivation to do anything
>knowing you'll be around forever gives you no motivation to leave an impact on the world
Death is a gift
You forgot about self-entitled jesusfags who think the world was made for them.
To them, life is just an entrance exam to the main event, and all you have to do to pass is believe.
Living forever would rob them of their "prize" and would be worth it for that alone.
It is true that most mammals have pink skin (white structural proteins + red blood) so Homo Sapiens would have evolved from a mammal with pink skin, but on the way the 'lineage' would have gradually lost its fur and, living as Homo Sapiens and its forebears did originally in Africa, would have gained melanin in its skin to counteract the increased sun exposure. Thus, it is entirely possible and likely that by the time the species called 'modern humans' had evolved, its skin would have been black.
Our lineage lost most of its hair prior to the first humans, so they would have already been subject to natural selection requiring darker skin tones. Unlikely that the first humans resembled Europeans, given their African origin and the fact that their recent ancestors were relatively hairless.
Does birth always have to include shittng yourself? if I don't eat the entire day I'm supposed to give birth will I reduce the chance of sitting myself?
>in before not inoculating child with gut flora.
He/she will live like most cesarean sectioned babies.
I think given the circumstances and how much mess there will be anyway, a little shit should be the least of your concerns. Just eat plenty of fibre and no meat for a couple of days beforehand.
Male nipples is just a result of a simple and conserved design.
I never see how other people can't understand why they exist, it's just like having Braille on drive through ATM's, completely reasonable.
Point is they exist, and instead of having different manufacturing processes for the keys so that they are Braille free, the same keys are used
If people knew anything about development, then they wouldn't wonder why men have nipples
Don't forget our 5-fingered hands, leading to a weird number system (10) based on 2 prime numbers with no common factor as opposed to if we had merely been born with 6 finers on each had, leading to a duodecimal (12) number system. Math and science would have developed faster.
I've always found it odd/funny that the mouth and anus are both approximately the same size and wetness of the vagina, leading to a lot of sex that cannot result in procreation. If making babies were what orgasm was all about, it should be concentrated on one specific place
