Someone Spotted That David Bowie Often Looked Like A Sea Slug, Created An Entire Blog To Prove It (30 Pics)

Bowiebranchia is a tumblr that compares pictures of Nudibranchia and other Opisthobranchia to David Bowie. And I know, at first, such a blog sounds a little random. After all, what do they have in common? However, once you start actually looking at the images, the answer becomes obvious.

Someone Spotted That David Bowie Often Looked Like A Sea Slug, Created An Entire Blog To Prove It (30 Pics)

Bowiebranchia is a Tumblr account that compares pictures of Nudibranchia and other Opisthobranchia to David Bowie. And I know, at first, such a blog sounds a little random. After all, what do they have in common? However, once you start actually looking at the images, the answer becomes obvious. Their appearances.

At times, the similarities work to such an uncanny degree, it's hard not to imagine that Bowie was actually bitten by a radioactive sea slug and developed a superhuman shapeshifting ability, allowing him to summon all of its colorful and imaginative looks. Continue scrolling and see for yourself!

Interestingly, these sea slugs carry showy exteriors on purpose. They burst with colors to scare predators away, informing them that their slimy innards may be toxic or simply yucky. According to evolutionary biologist Anne Winters, Bowiebranchia exposes what we can learn about the wild, beautiful and competitive evolution of both Bowie and the slugs.

“They’re both trying to stand out,” . “He’s trying to make a statement and get recognized for his individuality and his music, and nudibranchs are trying to get recognized too.”

Tracy Dendy, a New York-based designer who is the brain behind Bowiebranchia, said that she originally started using images of sea slugs as placeholders when designing new projects. Then, her co-worker pointed out the resemblance between a particularly vibrant photo and one of Bowie’s outfits, and she realized the potential for a blog. “I had never really known that much about David Bowie, but I was really into sea slugs,” Dendy said. For her, the draw of the blog was strictly the visual oddity and eerie perfection of the comparisons she could make.

The side-by-side format of these comparisons are really next level; matching lighting, colors, and even moods highlight the musician’s many changes, as well as the wild and brutal sides of natural selection.

40 Times People Spotted Things That Did Not Age Well And Decided To Share Them On The Internet (New Pics)

The test of time is a tough nut to crack, and this time, it’s all about failing. Let's take a look at the posts from the past that did not age gracefully.

40 Times People Spotted Things That Did Not Age Well And Decided To Share Them On The Internet (New Pics)

Oh… irony, how sweet you sometimes are. You know how the things we say can come around to haunt us? The test of time is a tough nut to crack, and this time, it’s all about failing.

The Facebook page "Posts that did not age well" is a hell on earth, showing how quotes, comments, posts, and everything you saw online some time ago did not age gracefully. In fact, some of the things look so utterly ridiculous in the current light, it may make you wonder what the heck they were thinkin’. So let’s go down this cringy memory lane, and after you’re done, be sure to check out part 1.

If humans could see the future, this post would probably have not existed. Because there’s nothing quite like failing the test of time. All the things you believed and said look more or less absurd in retrospect. Unless your job is predicting the future for a living.

Mysterious as it sounds, seeing what comes next is complex, critical, and quite a different job than the myths suggest. Paul Saffo, a technology forecaster in Silicon Valley, wrote in a piece for Harvard Business Review that “prediction is concerned with future certainty.” And that alone sounds quite paradoxical.

Paul explains further: “forecasting looks at how hidden currents in the present signal possible changes in direction for companies, societies, or the world at large.” Thus the goal of forecasting is to “identify the full range of possibilities.”

Plus, “unlike a prediction, a forecast must have a logic to it,” says Paul. That means that the forecaster must always be able to articulate, explain, and defend this logic. “That’s what lifts forecasting out of the dark realm of superstition,” argues Paul. In the end, forecasting is “nothing more (nor less) than the systematic and disciplined application of common sense.” And that common sense is something we all have.
