Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

And it’s NOT photoshopped!
We’re we sure it’s not photoshopped? I’m just going to have to watch Little Favour again I guess. Damn.
(don’t forget to write down your findings, or it doesn’t count)
I just rewatched Little Favour and can confirm that Benedict’s eyes do change colour very rapidly in this scene. So there you go. :) Science FTW!
There you go. Scienced and everything.

"My parents at a very early age planted the idea in my head that I could be anything I that wanted to be. Anything. I mean what a crazy thing to say to a kid! So many possibilities waiting to be turned into action. There was no limit. But you have to want it. It may take years! You might ask yourself what if I don’t get there. It doesn’t exist. There will be people that will say you can’t make a living out of something that you love to do. But are you really living by not doing it? You’re never too old and you’re never too young to start.” (x)
