I'm seriously wondering this. I asked my Biology teacher this during our evolution bit but he didn't have a solid answer for this.

Because the Aborigines aren't really from Australia, and in reality haven't been there that long on an evolutionary scale

australia wasn't always 100% cut off from the rest of the world because of the oceans.

aboriginals came here just like most everything else, there's not nearly enough time to evolve a pouch


so they made a compromise, they cut off dead kangaroo scrotum and used it
It's over simplified, So what!

You asked your teacher why Australians don't have pouches?

No, not the Australian prisoners. Australian natives.

Where are they from then? I'm genuinely curious. If they aren't from Australia how did they get there? And how long have they been there?

Travelled from then-Sunda, to then-Sahul. Now Australia. Sea levels were much, much lower and the distances between land were much, much smaller.

Do you know how evolution works? People aren't about to just grow a pouch because they saw some kangaroos and fancied their little belly pocket. We wouldn't even have a use for one, that's why we have hands. If at some point some poor guy had some crazy mutation of a little flap on his stomach, chicks would have probably just thought it weird and it wouldn't have gotten anywhere because it wouldn't have helped with survival.

what are you talking about? chicks would dig a guy with a pouch. they'd never need a purse again.

My god you're right. My whole argument is flawed, why don't we have pouches!

tap the A button as fast as you can and you'll grow a pouch.

Some nights, I just wonder why I come into the Pit. Thanks to TS, tonight is one of those nights.

Phillip, wtf happened, man? Your threads used to be good. Now, they're more akin to something a dumbass pot smoker would ask a dumbass drunk. Why, man? Why?!
