I guess you'll just have to, I don't know, trust in god that this should happen Laughat

The rest of ours have mostly writers and artists on them. And only one politician, but he really deserves it. We don't totally suck. Sometimes Rolleyes

8 Glitches in Animal Behavior That Can End in Catastrophe.

"The reason for it, say scientists, is that insects simply haven’t evolved the capacity to be more discriminating in their mating choices. This has led to “mating confusion” in which some bugs try to mate with members of other species — and even inanimate objects like beer bottles. Biologists theorize that same-sex behavior is “worth it” for males because “the cost of rejecting a valid opportunity to mate with a female is greater than than of mistakenly mating with a male.”"

I would argue that a lot of humans haven't either, but that's really neither here nor there. Drinking Beverage


And for those who can't be arsed to read, you should at least watch this example of a filial imprinting gone wrong. Forget about science and all that boring stuff - there is a gosling and puppy in it.




Also! Can someone please come over and hit me over the head or something. I really should stop reading all these articles and get back to work Weeping

I have a friend who is a resident in Gastroenterology. Whenever I see him in the hospital hall with that shit-eating grin he has, I just know he will have another "beer-bottle", (or "gerbil" Weeping ) ER "extraction" story.

Anyway. Looks like there are billions of planets in the Milky Way. Many in the habitable zone.

Sweet mother of god, Bucky, I was going more for the battle cry of the pathetic woman, "I'm alone 'cause I'm too intelligent/good/fill-in self-delusion of choice, are there no good men left" kinda thing there. Now I have these horrific images stuck in my head... And stuck was such poor choice of word here, too Weeping

Serves me right for checking in on this thread.

Did life on Earth emerge from clay?

The irony would be too delicious for words. Also, religionists are so going to try and make us eat dirt. Or clay.

PS. Gerbils, really?!?!?!

There was someone famous in the ER that came in ... in that condition.
He basically had to leave town when it got around.

Always heard the rumor about Richard Gere. That who you're referring to?

No. The person was a news anchor.

As of the mid-1980s, there were no reports in peer-reviewed medical literature describing "gerbilling".

Should this entry be moved to the conspiracy forums? Dodgy
