wowskies. this is a photograph of a blood-red waterfall located in Antarctica’s Taylor Glacier. it is the leakage of primordial ooze or ancient microbes from a fissure in the glacier they were trapped beneath almost 2 million years ago . these microbes evolved and continue to thrive without heat, sunlight or oxygen and are red in color due to their high salinity and richness in iron.

i am a wee bit speechless about this.

And I quote: It is the mission of MMICCo. to challenge the traditional paradigm that there is nothing abnormal about conversion of mammalian milk into luxury food items. Mother’s milk is a natural creation that we should celebrate, but is the milk of other species truly fair game for human consumption? If so, why isn’t human milk? Our hope is to provide a delicious frozen product while framing this conversation in a way that leads to fruitful progress in consideration of the ecological niche of Homo sapiens. End quote.

o. no.
