Baffled at centenarians and lazy lions? Random, we know, but Sharon Mahoney has a lot to say about these and more spectacles of nature with a humorous touch.
According to Sharon Mahoney, aging doesn’t have to be scary if your grandparents and great aunts lived past one hundred. Because she has such a long way to go, she jokes that puberty starts for her at age 40! Luckily she’s blessed with a more optimistic outlook than a 115 year old Indian man who “just wants to die.”
Living for a century means that you have the blessing (or curse) of witnessing society’s progress unfold over a longer duration than anyone else. It’s great that we’re closer to perfect equality before the law for Americans than ever before.
Humans are equal, whereas some animals are female dominated!
We’re lucky that humans can actually be equal to one another as some animal species have female-dominated societies. Female lions do more hunting than male lions because lions are afraid of hair getting in their eyes. It’s just like dating a male musician. Female sloths can summon male mates with cacophonous screams and octopi kill their mates upon mating!
