There is a poll going on about bringing back the 2007 version of the game. The poll have had enough votes, so it will return TOMORROW! Sadly, to be able to play tomorrow you need to have voted wich requires membership.

Seeing that noone has called ******** on this yet. Giraffes does not need long necks to reach their food, it's a myth. If you ever watched a giraffe eat in the wild they generally have to lower their head to eat.
The best explaination given so far for the long neck is that they use them to fight for females. (This might not be the case as males probably would have longer necks than females).
Also giraffes have short necks in relation to their legs, as they can't drink water without spreading their legs. So obviously it makes no sense that their necks were shorter, unless their legs were aswell, as they wouldn't be able to drink water.

At first I was like, yeah okay, it makes sense, until I realized that this is all supposed to be happening in the life span of one giraffe and that all giraffes supposedly go through it (at least that's what I got), and then I'm like wait what. And the I sat there for a moment and then remembered how evolution works. I'm an idiot and I need sleep.

I believe he meant that the modern theory of evolution became the accepted scientific explanation behind their long necks.

Whoever made this does not know how to evolution. Stretching has nothing to do with it, because stretching isn't genetic and can't be passed down. It's simply the fact that giraffes with shorter necks starved before they could reproduce, so the ones with slightly longer and longer necks would win out when trying to shag the sheraffes.

actually a lot of aspects of evolution show Lamarckian characteristics as odd as it may sound it appears as some traits know they are being selected for and promote mutation.

User avatar #132 to #30 - DivderOfZero (03/17/2013) [-]
Actually there has been some recent evidence for Lamarckian evolution. Basically, a type of RNA, iRNA, will store information about stress/repetition on parts of an animals body and pass it on to the next generation which will then combat that stress.
#46 to #30 - kennyroks (02/21/2013) [-]
you do realize Lamarcks theory of evolution was discredited long ago right?
#47 to #30 - other (02/21/2013) [-]
Don't mean to be a dickhole, but you don't really know how to evolution either I'm afraid :/. It's a popular misconception that giraffes have long necks to reach leaves, when in fact giraffes have long necks so they're better at fighting other giraffes (no word of a lie, they have neck fights, google dat **** ).
The giraffe with the longer neck fights better and therefore wins the sexy lady giraffe.
Please think carefully and try a bit of googling before using a Bill Nye.jpg, he should only be used if you're absolutely certain, otherwise you could be left looking like a bit of a moron.

Actually, he does know how to evolution, just not how to giraffe evolution.
User avatar #118 to #47 - brenton (02/21/2013) [-]
Okay, so I may not have known the specific reasoning behind long necks leading to better survival, but my main point was that the ones that survive pass on their traits because they out-compete those with less-favorable traits. I do know how to evolution. Half of my bachelor's degree involved evolution.

Lamarck's theory was the exact point of the comic. Lamarck was the one that said this to be true. it is obviously wrong.

giraffes elongated their necks in order to better use them as whip-like weapons to win the affection of their mates. This is also why they have horns on the top of their head.
#12 to #9 - snowshark (02/20/2013) [-]
!!HOLD IT!!!

Then how do you explain their diet of acacia leaves, food they would not be able to reach were it not for their long necks! The whipping was merely a bi-product of survival-based evolution!
#15 to #12 - neiharakon (02/20/2013) [-]
while their neck height has allowed for a subsidiary diet of acacia leaves, there primary eating habits bring their necks closer to their chest height. In fact most female giraffes tend to develop shorter necks than the males and still find themselves with plenty of nutritional content. The progress of the species toward developing longer necks was not based upon competition with the environment but rather competition within the species. After a better "equipped" giraffe wins a fight over a female, they then pass on the long necked traits to the offspring, which repeats the process.
