Well there Qbot 9001,
what kind of question are you cooking up for me today?
Let’s see what we have here!
“What if humans migrated like salmon?”
Oh come on!
This can’t be the question!
This must be the real question!
I’ll take that!
This just says “Do it, coward.”
You know what!? Fine!
We’re going with Qbot’s question!
So what would it be like if humans had to migrate like salmon?
Spoiler alert — it’d be pretty darn weird.
Like a lot of things in nature,
the reason for migrating and swimming upstream
boils down to one thing: reproduction.
For salmon, this is called spawning,
which means laying eggs.
Salmon are typically between 2 and 6 when they’re ready to spawn,
and that means one thing, heading home to mate.
Salmon swim upstream to reproduce,
with some swimming hundreds of miles
to reach their spawning sites.
Recent research has shown that
salmon can use the Earth’s geomagnetic field
to help them find their way back home on these long distance migrations
This also seems to be the way that little baby salmon
can find their way from their gravel nests and up to the surface waters.
Smell also seems to play a role in salmon spawning migration.
Younger salmon learn the smell of their home stream as they leave the nest
and can use it to help find their way back
when it’s time bolster the salmon forces.
This might even lead to a bunch of rerouting on our salmon friend’s GPS
as they have to “test the water” down different streams
to find the path that smells just right.
Now, having to make your way on home to do the, um, do-si-do
要在回家的路上 嗯 “跳舞”
would probably be a pretty big inconvenience,
especially when you learn what happens after salmon mate,
but the whole thing about smelling your way home
already plays on something that humans experience.
Smell is closely connected to human memory,
which is why a whiff of a pumpkin spice latte
can take you back to the memories of frolicking in the fall leaves
and making pumpkinmen with your friends.
It’s like a snowman,
but with pumpkins.
During the journey home,
salmon start to go through some changes.
Depending on their species, salmon can change color
and develop extra features like a hooked snout and elongated teeth
to help them attract a mate and defend their spawning grounds.
That wouldn’t be too bad if you humans had to do the same —
it’s basically just a makeover.
But the salmon’s “makeover” doesn’t stop with its outsides.
At some point along the journey,
certain salmon stop feeding
and their insides begin to break down,
making more room for eggs and sperm.
The salmon then start to live off of the built-up fat that’s stored in their body,
giving them enough energy to go and do the deed.
After spawning actually happens,
things get, well, even worse for our salmon friends.
The fate for most salmon at this point
is to die soon after mating,
their decaying bodies providing a nutrient-rich environment
for their growing fish spawn.
That’s about the most morbid way
to take care of your kids that I’ve ever heard of.
So, Qbot 9001,
因此 Qbot 9001
if humans were really like salmon,
you’d have some pretty terrifying things to lookforward to.
And don’t even get me started on having to deal with these guys.
So do you have questions you want me to feed Qbot?
His question generating algorithm definitely needs some work.
Let me know down in the comments section below.
Special HUGE Announcement time!
My animator friends Illymation, TheOdd1sOut, Emirichu, and SomethingelseYT
我的动画创作者朋友Illimation TheOdd1sOut, Emirichu, 和SomethingelseYT
