You have arrived at a destination…
which is a good thing.
One in which all your wildest inquiries are being pursued…
The go to destination of the wondering mind.
How do you know if you’ve found the right spot?
If you are:
Irritated by ignorance…
Unsatisfied with not knowing…
Left Wanting when hearing only half truths…
Find uninformed rhetoric anti-climactic…
Then look no further…
You have arrived.
From ground shaking insights,
to far distant planetary discoveries
You will hear the harmonic tremors
As we will move the heavens and earth into clearer focus
Until you are completely satisfied…
A wondering mind is a wonderful thing
And we’re so happy you chose to share yours with us…
Here on…

Survival of the sex…
why we do it

Raven social structure may be as complex as the High School cafeteria
Ravens remember who is friend and who is foe, develop patterns as social butterflies or loners, and use their social knowledge to get ahead. Ravens – they’re just like us!

Smart ladies know what they like
…and if you’re a guppy, it’s flash and panache.

A call for A Plant Microbiome Project
Do it right!

Getting snooty
About cannabis.

Arctic plankton bloom?!?!
The ice has gotten so thin (how thin is it?) that enough light has penetrated to cause a plankton bloom. Uh oh?

Bullies and bulimia
School bullies and their victims are obsessed with weight loss compared to others.
