Until the mid-60s, the Aboriginals came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aboriginal meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)

The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.

If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

amazing

lmao why do people say sotnikova didnt deserve to win the gold medal and that there’s some shit going on backstage i mean COME ON GUYS

YEAH SHE FELL BUT THE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY OF HER FREE SKATE OVERALL JUST OUTWEIGHS THAT FALL

YUNA KIM’S JUST WASNT AS TECHNICALLY DIFFICULT (BUT YES HER FREE…

First of, I am not a Yuna-bot. I love Yuna but I also respect other skaters. But I just want to point out some of the things written here. 

Adelina did not fall. She had an ugly step out on her combination 3F-2T-2Lo and may have also two-footed the last jump in the combination.

Yuna Kim is one, if not THE, most technically CORRECT and strongest skater in the history of figure skating. You can see that especially in her jumping technique. That means she executes the elements not only correctly or by the book but also beautifully. She is the ONLY skater in that ladies event that got no edge calls or deductions. She is not technically behind Adelina. And by technically I mean that I considered both the base value AND GOE. You can plan a very strong program like Mao does all the time but it is another thing to execute them properly and with good quality, like Mao’s epic FS in Sochi. Another example of this is when you plan to draw a realistic portrait but ended up doing a doodle. It’s the same with Adelina. She planned on doing difficult elements but did not execute some of them correctly and not all (in my opinion) were done beautifully like Yuna or Caro did. Yuna’s repertoire was the same as her Les Mis program’s and that got an enormous score without the Olympic inflation and one less element (spiral sequence). Also there are two parts of the scoring system, the TES (technical elements) and PCS (presentation and components). Yuna should have edged her out by a large margin on the PCS alone. I mean do you think Adelina skates as smooth and effortless as Carolina, Mao and Yuna? Pfft.

Adelina did IN FACT took off in an inside edge before vaulting into the air in her 3Lz. If you don’t trust gifs that show that, HERE is a fan cam of it. You can pause at 0:29. It really goes fast but if you pause at the right moment you can see it. For the record, wrong edges cannot be corrected in a matter of months. Mao had to re-learn every single jump to correct her wrong edges but she still doesn’t do them correctly all the time. Was Adelina called on her wrong edge? No, for some reason. Her edge calls from past competitions are actually an evidence that she has a habit of Flutzing which she also did in Sochi.

Yuna did illusion turns as well but on her Step Sequence whose level got called wrong AGAIN by the tech caller who is, surprise surprise, Russian. Yuna’s spins are also fast and well-centered. They’re not outstanding like Yulia’s but they are enough to get the levels and GOEs. Except of course her lay back spin which deteriorated over the years because of her persistent back injury. FYI, while Adelina’s spins are more flexible than Yuna’s, they also travel more. That’s a point for deduction.

What do you mean couldn’t get down low enough? If you’re talking about flexibility, Yuna is not as flexible as the other skaters, yes. But there are other aspects of her skating that should have counted waaaayy more than flexible spins. For example, her MUSICALITY and ARTISTRY should be reflected in PCS but were not, for some reason. 

Pouring your heart out is not in the criteria for judging. Lastly, Yuna performed a near flawless tango. Adelina’s program was a recycled JUNIOR program. I’m not saying she’s a lousy skater. Obviously, she isn’t. She has power and lots of potential. But her performance was for a bronze medal at best if you compared that to what Yuna and Caro showed. She would have become a proud and deserving bronze medalist.

TL;DR: She did not win fair and square.
