oookkkay @ all melbourne girls who are looking for a house at the moment or in the future

i posted an ad on gumtree earlier this morning looking for a house and got this response almost instantly, the conversation turned really weird really quickly and i got suspicious. there’s more to this they kept trying to ask me what my best feature was and if i’d walk around in my underwear when i was just trying to ask about the house so i realised pretty quickly it’s probably a predator and tried to corner him into a lie. theres no coles in darley only an IGA and furthermore i know pretty much everyone in this town and i don’t know these people and can’t find anyone that has them on facebook so they are obviously not real people. (advantages of a small town right?)

please if you are looking for a house be CAREFUL of these people. block this phone number: +61 429 947 596

i’m going to take this information to the police tomorrow and hope they do something but please spread this! you never know who it could save!! there are lots of young girls looking for houses in melbourne (and i posted this ad for the entirety of melbourne which was why i was so surprised that this person was in my town of all places so they are probably targeting girls statewide)

thank you and stay safe please!!

Brain of World’s First Known Predators Discovered

An international team of paleontologists has identified the exquisitely preserved brain in the fossil of one of the world’s first known predators that lived in the Lower Cambrian, about 520 million years ago. The discovery revealed a brain that is surprisingly simple and less complex than those known from fossils of some of the animal’s prey.

The find for the first time identifies the fossilized brain of what are considered the top predators of their time, a group of animals known as anomalocaridids, which translates to “abnormal shrimp.” Long extinct, these fierce-looking arthropods were first discovered as fossils in the late 19th century but not properly identified until the early 1980s. They still have scientists arguing over where they belong in the tree of life.

"Our discovery helps to clarify this debate," said Nicholas Strausfeld, director of the University of Arizona’s Center for Insect Science. "It turns out the top predator of the Cambrian had a brain that was much less complex than that of some of its possible prey and that looked surprisingly similar to a modern group of rather modest worm-like animals."

Strausfeld, a Regents’ Professor in the Department of Neuroscience in the UA College of Science, is senior author on a paper about the findings, which appear in the July 17 issue of Nature.
