  • So X27 (Wolverine's female clone) could become a reality, save for the whole 'adamantium' thing?
    Shivers

  • I don't use them. I didn't even know they were different from emoticons, which is what I still use. I like this one best : ]

  • What's even the point in trying? SR Foxley always gets named president…

  • Cyberpsychologists are actual people? Sign me up!

  • I don't use those annoying things

  • While listening to this episode, I thought up "let's prove evolution by taking two groups of mice and affecting their environment so they each developed to be carnivores or herbivores, respectively. Then I thought, wait, doesn't the fact that dogs have been bread to have different traits prove evolution?

    I mean, technically speaking dog breeds are no different from human ethnicity. I've long thought that if humans didn't spread out to discover the world and each area stayed sectioned off from the rest of the population, wouldn't each group, europeans, africans, middle east, india, oriental, aboriginals, and american natives, if they had stayed separate long enough, they would have become so vastly different from each other they would be considered different species that simply shared a common ancestor?

    Same thing with dogs, they were specifically bread to develop certain traits. …… I've sat here for 10 minutes trying to remember where the hell I was going with this… basically wouldn't dogs going from wolves into all these breeds we have now which are VASTLY different from each other, be evidence for evolution?

  • Well, killer mice throws a wrench in the Zootopia movie science.

  • but why are there killer mice around my anus?

  • How does killer mice relate to Emojis?

  • Fuck emojis! Emoticons FTW!

  • God I fucking hate emojis. Especially that obnoxious "crying for joy" one people use after they've "rekt" someone, or dun been "savage".

  • I use emoticons if anything at all. Usually, I" put an exclamation point if I'm saying great job in a happy way and if it's not happy, you can tell from context.

  • the zombie apocalypses is upon us!

  • Omg the mice remind me of some movie….

  • Wait a second. Is this John Green's brother…..?

  • Emoji-cology

  • So…scientists discovered the cat part of the mouse brain?

  • I prefer emoticons because companies like to make their own versions of emojis that look like absolute trash.

  • hank is everywhere

  • And of course 🇧🇪

  • 2341 XOXO Goodbye

  • lol

  • y'all should do psychology of religion. like why people cry when they sing praises to God. cause I have a feeling there's more to it than the "Holy Spirit came upon them". like if you agree.

  • CAULIFLOWER EGGPLANT TACOBEAR

  • wow never realized the subject was changed to killer mice….

    R.I.P. emoji killing killer mice

  • 🤜👏🏽🙀😺😽👎🏻☠️😽👹🤒💀👽👺😷🤒💩👽🎒🎒🎒☂️🐭🐭🙊🦉🥀🌗🌾🎍🌹🌖🍢🍡🏂🏉🎱

  • Nice table clothe shirt..

  • from emojis to killer mice? why

  • I don't use emojis! 😑

  • Now to make on-demand killer xenomorphs, I think Weyland Yutani would appreciate that
    #Alien references

  • "On demand killing mice"

    That's what future civilizations will teach their children as the end of our civilization 😉

  • Isn't the brain blood free? I thought it was all CSF. Are there blood vessels inside the skull at all to measure blood flow?

  • 😝😝😝😝

  • I use emojis in place of entire sentences. If someone sends me something mildly sad and are looking at me to agree. I can just send a sad face rather than type it out. Besides, emoji wars are fun

  • 😦 , 💀🐀

  • In 9gag culture emoji is cancer
