Sunspots 189

Elevation is an emotion, and the vagus nerve mediates it, according to Slate.

Wired has posted photos of 12 "living fossils." Some of them are really strange . . .

Speaking of photos of strange animals, I posted a photo of a land planarian, which was about the size and shape of a skinny pencil, except for the triangular head. It was oozing across our driveway.

I am pleased, by the way, to have been a Flickr member for four years today.

(Islam, in this case, but I'm not using a "religion" category.) Wisconsin Public Radio has a series, "Inside Islam." It looks like many of the posts/broadcasts are about the status of women in Muslim areas.

Thanks for the link! Hope you stop by and leave a comment sometime.

My students think I am a living fossil - - - they even gave me a "Fossil Appreciation Day Card" one year.

Lovely bunch.

Thanks, both of you.

Kaitlin, I guess you are from Wisconsin Public Radio, which I used to listen to a lot.

Keetha, I go back before fossilization. Your students have no real appreciation of what "old" is. . .

Keetha said...

Perhaps it really is relative.

Martin LaBar said...

er, probably.

Merry Christmas!
