Yes, skulls of enemies are a renewable source. You can always make new enemies.


BB8304

And you’re getting rid of people that will probably use plastic. Killing a bunch of birds and a person with one stone, or axe, or whatever you want to use.


TheRealMasterhound

The best part is that if you have enough enemies you will never run out of skull cups and overpopulation wouldn't be a issue.


tsavong117

And they're entirely biodegradable, and even *good* for the environment!


nnnnnn___

What if you have no enemies?


TheRealMasterhound

Then your either Keanu Reeves or Lying.


nnnnnn___

I could change my name to Lying


TheRealMasterhound

True true... but it would probably make people trust you less


AllWhoPlay

*saving birds


OwlerDuder

Always.


TheKingBeyondTheWaIl

Ok let’s start mass production then


ArtisanVirgil

We’re already producing them. Harvest


experts_never_lie

And each one is a carbon sink and reduces resource consumption.


dada_georges360

Plus bones are biodegradable


CyanNotSus6255

You can make new enemiew and then kill it to have another skull

How do I delete someone else's comment


F_Klyka

Hey! Don't make me drink from your skull!


manufurz

You need a enemy skull?


F_Klyka

Thanks, but I already have plenty to harvest.


djo0o0

Brief history of my country After the battle, Krum encased Nicephorus's skull in silver, and used it as a cup for wine-drinking. This is one of the best documented instances of the custom of the skull cup. (Bulgaria)


Rowlet92

Yes and he later won the quidditch world finals. Good times.


wubalubadubscrub

Actually Ireland won, but Krum caught the snitch


radmadicalhatter

But did the snitch get stitch??


djo0o0

I was talking about a true historical fact happening around 9th Century. But I have to admit that refference to HP movies is fun

jussstttforpooorrrnn

Not sure if y’all know what goes on in the bottom part of a skull…but it definitely doesn’t hold liquid. EDIT: No, not eye holes. Your brain stem has to enter your skull. There’s a sizable hole in the bottom of the cavity where the brain resides to allow this.


TheReverseShock

you seal the holes with strips of leather tanned from the hide of your enemy.

Yep, it’s a pretty well known thing: https://www.oglaf.com/skulls/ Warning: other comics on that site are NSFW of multiple varieties, sometimes at the same time.


WarMace

I've been a fan for years and that is still my favorite comic I don't know why but it tickles me so much.


SwoleMcDole

Same, but for me it is either the skulls one or this one https://www.oglaf.com/fountain-of-doubt/


BarkySugger

It had to be linked. I came here to make sure it was. Oglaf is NSFW in ways you can't even imagine until you read it. The author has some very strange ideas.


Moblin81

Apparently you don’t use the full skull, but actually cut it to make more of a bowl.


jussstttforpooorrrnn

I’d think so! Cut the top half off and flip it over.


DieWoelfe

Pro tipp: Turn it upside down


Alidapro65

True, a skull is not a fossil fuel, whereas plastic is


Infernojake36

I was always told that Oil came from Dinosaur Bones, and plants fossilizing? Is that true?


LieutenantCrash

Not from dinosaurs. Oil comes from ancient marine life including some plants. But most plants turned into coal as far as I know


Infernojake36

Oh ok, thank you for explaining.


LieutenantCrash

No worries. I love science and teaching it whenever I can to people who want me to


Mr-Fleshcage

you can get oil from bones, but it smells worse than death https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dippel%27s_oil


Texadecimal

Used as a harrasing agent for chemical warfare... By not being lethal, the oil was claimed to not be in breach of the Geneva Protocol. So, it's ok because it doesn't kill you? I'm sure it would be more humane to just kill your enemies.


Texadecimal

Side note I just looked up, it's a [possibility](https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/11/161102134504.htm) that sewage may one day be used as oil. I was curious, as I've worked with septic sewage water before, and I will say, without the water, you would think it's already on its way to becoming oil. It becomes black and thin, which I would recall when the black goo from Death Stranding was seen.


Mr-Fleshcage

This is some good fucking news. Thank you!


_nod

Yep. Think of all the pollutin’ that enemy would have done had you not killed them. Not to mention their potential offspring.


henkheijmen

Potential offspring? I see the adds ‘Now our number one biodegradable mugs, made from an extra environmentally friendly source: kids, adolescents and aspiring parents. To make sure your mug stays unique and above all, minimize future environmental impact!!


mAx_RoachEB

This isn’t TTT


Skate1011

congrats the sub is now ruined, it originally was TTT but now it's memes and stuff


austrianshriml

We used to use mostly paper but then we had to save the trees so we went plastic. Except the trees got cut down anyway.


TheclazyKoala

You can also use bell peppers as a cup. Just gotta remove the seeds if you don't like them


Aniram93

*It's called recycling, Ed.*


Apprehensive-Ad-87

Modern problems require ancient solutions…


Justmerightnowtoday

Come to think of it, before the industrial revolution, no real damage to the enviroment was caused by humans.... We have really screwed things up in less than 150 years.


Cytholoblep

Humans did a pretty good job at wiping out most megafauna millennia ago. Giant sloths, mammoths, and many other animals all pushed to extinction through hunting.


juliO_051998

We still did, why do you think there are no more native Americans horses, europeans lions, eurochs (the ccattle equivalents of wolfs) and many more. Also, apparently in the past the middle east was way greener than today. Guess who was the one that caused all those changes?


nomadengineer

The Sahara Desert was made by humans.


3dprintsAnomus

no it wasn't.... That occurs every few 40,000 years.


kujakutenshi

So thirsty 😢

Save the turtles by using hollowed out bones of your enemies as a straw


FelixthefakeYT

Who knew the raiders from mount and Blade Warband were so environmentally conscious? They really just want to see harvesting season come to pass.


TheFriendlyMann

But that's just a meme


ChrisRacer87

And so is drinking from the toilet bowl


VaughnanB

But theres too many holes


GoldenPaladin2002

No, no, he's got a point


OlivineQuartz

Two fold sustainability: less people and biodegradable 🤣


SpaceCore42

Unusual amount of Helpful Awards. I thought everyone knew this environmental tip already.


ArcticBreakout

Shitty sub


Handamoose

Ehhh. I'd argue in this case the skull is horrendously inefficient and also bad for the planet as well... Depends on roughly how old his killed enemy was, since that person definitely had their own emissions throughout their life prior to being deaded, *not to mention all the emissions from feeding them.* so we will assume they're a adult. Which would put us in a livestock situation where its incredibly resource inefficient to use dead enemies skulls as cups, since they use massive amounts of resources to grow up into being your enemy. It's like making beef, except less methane. So not really r/technicallythetruth


ZeraoraKing

thats useless, there are holes, in the eyes, nose, mouth, and ears


IIIlllIIIlllIIIEH

Those are very little, the eyes only need a small hole for the optic nerve to the chamber where the brain is. Same for the ears. The mouth and nose are not connected at all to that chamber. However there is a very big hole just at the bottom the size of a coin where the spinal cord connects to the brain, and some smaller ones for the charothids.

It’s also sometimes more ethical, depending on who your enemies are

AbdulAzizAnbar

Well yeah but sadly I don't have any enemies cuz they're either my friends or they just stay away from me


8bitvids

Well, they last a while, they are biodegradable, they look fucking metal, and if you have enough enemies, they are easily produced.


Nearby-Elevator-3825

Plus, you've cut short someone else's carbon footprint!


genomerain

Plastic cups are just the skulls of your dinosaur enemies!


Crizzle2007

Finally a way to make all the dead bodies in my basement useful


IDuccLordI

Well all of the water will leak from under it and through the eyes so you gotta get the scapula of your prey in there too crush them down to size and use a little bit of their blood to seal it together might take a while to dry but worth the wait and the countless you killed cuz then you get a perfectly environmental safe mug for all of the blood left over!


K_Janeway2314

I honestly haven't thought of a way that killing people isn't environmentally friendly, just ask my negative carbon footprint.


DarkEngineer21

What about the new aluminum disposable cups from ball


AnalllyAcceptedCoins

Lower your carbon footprint, and theirs! And maybe their foot

Kirielle13

Not to mention then, there is less people population so that helps the planet too


rinigneel

And helps with population control and acquiring the skull is a daily work out. Win win


Kmaster86

2hat if your enemies are environmental activist?


jakethedumbmistake

Use the £3 to buy him a drink


stupidfatcat2501

How do they seal the bottom though? With plastic aha checkmate.


arcxjo

You actually turn them upside-down, and use the top as the cup. ... or so I've heard ...


Milkslinger

*Technically* taking one human off the board is doing a lot more than just one cup's worth. Vikings were the greenest mf'ers around


Low-Ad3443

Sometimes my genius scares me


MHPanda

Reminds me of the scene from GOT where Karl Tanner is drinking from Jeor’s skull

Since the first one, I’ve never looked back.

Upcycling!


lazermaniac

I'm more of a containable drink sustainer, myself.


BigByrd382

Mmm yes a horned helmet and a double bladed war axe very strange


TriniTDM

Yeah, but you have to plug the rest of the holes.


lil-nuglet-

It’s all fun and games till it starts growing mould and the drink will just spill out the bottom anyway


philosoaper

Yes, but making a set is quite messy.

RubenJV662

For the same reason serial killers are also very environment friendly


fujin5

what are you trying to say?


TheDeamonMeteor

But the downside is, they have holes in them


NCNR8

What about the holes? Do they get filled? With what?


Vector_Ove

And if you kill your enemies, they, being dead, will stop emitting CO2, which is harmful to the environment


Tikman12

Hey ferb i know what where gonna do today!


UrsaMinorNinth

It’s not true though, it takes a lot of resources and time to breed humans. Sure, they’re abundant now but the demand for cups is high, eventually you’re just gonna have to start breeding humans just for cups and humans notoriously require a lot of feed and shelter. They’re not like cows, you can’t just leave them out in a field and expect them to figure out what to do.


BaconBreadcake

I can now fuck my cup and a person at the same time, wonderful!


RogueThneed

The best part is that the skull is upright, meaning there's a whole lot of \*something\* on the bottom, making it cup-like. What are the odds it's plastic? (And even if that skull were upside down, it's more of a bowl than a cup. \*Real\* Vikings know this stuff.)


Artemisz123

But your drink will keep spilling out of the eye sockets :(

That’s a Starbucks beverage with a zarf on it, which means it is hot. Which means it doesn’t come in a plastic cup.

Lol


scofield-micheal

Can someone edit this and replace the Viking with Jesus?


ReddiusOfReddit

Less waste and less wasters, a win-win if you ask me. But take my advice, NEVER invite a cop for a drink (unless you're looking to expand your collection).


worstyss

The production process of it is also eco friendly

Secondary benefit, you ended someone's carbon footprint.
