I’m going to go ahead and say that the human race is pretty spectacular.

Of course, we have done some pretty terrible things to our planet and pretty much every living thing that resides on it. But the truth remains that we are an incredibly intelligent species with plenty of impressive inventions under our collective belt.

And while only a tiny percentage of us can actually take credit for modern inventions such as the internet, humans are, on the whole, capable of a great deal. But on a more “basic” level, I think the really amazing thing about us humans is the incredible amount of diversity that exists between us.

Some of us are born with what looks like a natural ear piercing:

It’s the kind of impressive diversity that you don’t really see in any other species. I’m talking about the colossal variation that exists in people’s skin tones, hair color, hair texture, eye shape etc.

Then there are the rarer human physical traits such as dimples or having two differently-colored eyes.
