RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
I just received this compliment after some of my work was reviewed and I had given myself a B+ for my efforts, I'm floored!

“B+? in the whole world there are only me and (ABC) and maybe one or two people at the Smithsonian who have a clear opinion on these guys- so if you match us 95% of the time, you are in the top 5 people in the world for Coryphopterus IDs….

And I would say about one out of ten or twenty photos is really up in the air on ID.” – XYZ

Holy shit do I feel special Blush

Actually I don't, but I contribute images to scientists for papers, magazines and books. I also take scientists out to the reefs to collect data and specimens. It's not my "job", it's my passion.

So you have another job then, cause if you actually did something science related in america you would have to live in a apartment of some sort.

Funny. I'd have to rent out one of my own apartments to myself at a discount.

I like your post but I can't "like" your post, we seem to be at a numerical stale mate. Wink
