well life just isnt fucking fair is it humpback whale 85
I’m going to decorate our 30 year old plastic tree with equally well aged ball-boules and tinsel, though admittedly the latter might be a shade younger. The age of these items is shared with a lot of our things, like the hoover, a washing up bowl, a whisk, a dinner set, the hallway stairway wallpaper…I’ve seen things last longer here than anywhere else i’ve ever known.
Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.

They just explained animal instinct in terms of humans. Aka no new news
