Other adaptations- sweat glands and largely hairless bodies. Opposable thumbs. Speech. Instinctual willingness to eat practically anything. Efficient use of calorie intake. The only things that really make us weak is our sense of smell which was sacrificed for... And get this... Increased cranial capacity. Thats right. Our one major weakness is only there to make room for our major strength which allowed us to trick wolves into doing all the smelling for us.

Also, we taste bad.  No shit.

Sharks spit your leg out after biting it off.

The bitch of it is, they thought you were a seal.  Or Joey Vitone.

humans are glorified monkey's that in natures terms should not exist and are only good because they are smartarses.

There i said it.

Yeah, and?

The fact that if you strip humans of our primary adaptive trait it would leave us defenseless is relevant to what, exactly?

Badgers obviously

AND WHAT IF BADGERS DIDN'T HAVE GILLS?  HUH?  WHAT THEN, SMART GUY?

Cross bred badger sharks.

:lulz: i think i read somewhere that the only predator that doesnt mind us are lions and judging from assyrian wall carvings we didnt let them carry on with that for very long.

Lions would also be a candidate for a predator suitable for the glorified and primitive "weaponized ape"

No. First theyre felines not apes. Secondly having hands requires adaptation to arboreal life. Hands are needed to make spears.

African tribes kill lions for fun. Potential predator doesnt mean actual one.

So far as I know, there are only 4 land animals that eat humans as "regular" prey.

And they are all predators where prey is scarce.

Humans are so plentyful.

Makes sense.

Ok tb- lets put it this way. We may have killed off thousands of species in the last 40000 years some of them significantly larger than us. But as you said we had a technological advantage. Well. What if there was a species that was about as intelligent as us stronger than us and had the same level of technology? Oh yeah there were those neanderthal guys too. Oops.
