    The actual rainforest parts of the Pacific Northwest, like the Olympic Peninsula or Vancouver Island, get a lot more than 55 inches of rain per year. The wettest part of Vancouver gets more than 200 inches. A lot of places in the US people don't think of as particularly wet currently get around 50 inches of rain a year. Pretty much everywhere along the gulf coast, places like Houston, New Orleans and Tampa, get that much rain or more and also most of the cities along the Atlantic Seaboard, from Providence down into NYC, down to Raleigh and even Orlando and Miami get that much rain. Even some cities further inland and on the other side of the Appalachian mountain range like Nashville and Memphis average about 50 inches of rain per year. I hope that helps put that number into perspective for people. (at least the US people) For the Europeans 55 inches seems like a lot more rain. There are only 5 major European cities that get more than 40 inches (~1000 mm) a year. Podgorica, Montenegro (65), Ljubljana, Slovenia (54), Tirana, Albania (48), Glasgow, Scotland (44), and Zurich, Switzerland (41). You'll notice the notoriously damp London doesn't make the list, it only gets about half of what Glasgow gets with 23 inches of rain per year (for any Scots reading, the next time the English complain about the weather feel free to point that out to them) but like the notoriously rainy Seattle (37 inches and every tourist carrying an umbrella) it's cloudy often so people assume it gets a lot of rain.

    If DNA attributes are derived from longevity of one's life (more intercourse) spreading the DNA. Then are modern humans destined to fail if we only pass along DNA through what monetary means we derive in life presently. In short... if a bunch of rich idiots have greater means in life than genius poor population are we destined for failure as a species?

    What you said about the T-rex arms probably not being used in fighting doesn´t seem too unlikely to me. There are several species that, when fighting for females or territory, use non-lethal methods, even though they easily could.

    You know what would be interesting the history of predator and prey. Anomalocaris was our worlds first major predator, but how and why did it become this way? What was the thing that led to such a complex predator/prey relationship and how has this evolved throughout the years to keep adding the complex relationship that exists to this day.

    The only thing surprising about any of this is how long it took the "experts" to figure any of this out. It doesn't take a PhD in anthropology or paleontology to know that humans are potential prey of carnivores, even up to the present day. I am pretty sure if I stuck my toes into crocodile infested waters, I'd end up missing a lot more than just my toes. The only thing I learned from this video is how bias has influenced past researchers and undoubtedly does so today. In other words, to paraphrase this video's presenter, we are always products of what ever is going on around us-even if we don't realize it.
