Prognathism is well recorded as a trait of several historical individuals. The most famous case is that of the House of Habsburg, among whom mandibular prognathism was a family trait; indeed, the condition is frequently called “Habsburg Jaw” as a result of its centuries-long association with the family. Among the Habsburgs, the most prominent case of mandibular prognathism is that of Charles II of Spain, who had prognathism so pronounced he could neither speak clearly nor chew as a result of generations of politically motivated inbreeding.

it’s weird because now all the aristos have no fucking chins at all


I am very fortunate to be filled with wonderful memories from my childhood. I remember the day like it was yesterday when I got my very own rabbit. She was white and fluffy and had long, brown, floppy ears. It was love at first sight and I was thrilled with joy. My mom, in her listen-to-me-carefully voice, sat me down and said, ‘With this rabbit you also have responsibilities. You have to take care of your rabbit and you have to love and respect her.’

Her words stayed with me and I still try to treat everyone I meet, animals and people, with love and respect. Her words have been important in making me into the person I am today. So thank you, mom, for teaching me the core values in life and about caring about others. I love you.
