It's almost Darwin Day!
greatmindsofscience: Ah yes, February 12 is almost here, a day better known to many within the scientific community as Darwin Day! A day in which we celebrate the birth of the man who gave us: Natural Selection! The Origin of Species! The Descent of Man! Finches! And one of the most glorious beards in the history of science! So yeah, in case you couldn’t tell, I’m geeking out pretty...
I had something sort of inappropriate in the...
and I was going to delete it before I posted it, but then I forgot to, so I edited it out, but somebody already reblogged it, so to whoever sees the version before I fixed it, I’m sorry.
Because I’m doing a post on spiders later today and I’m giving you a warning right now. Spiders, but only one post, for the living fossils series. Beware if you’re afraid of spiders.
You guys should all go follow Dailyfossil, if you don’t already. She’s much better at this than I am. Also, I did not forget about Paranthropus, I was just dead tired yesterday, and the person who I left to work on that paper with didn’t understand what we were supposed to do, so we worked on his paper for seven hours, after which I wrote mine in about four, and went to class to...
I'll be right back.
I left the first time because of lunch, now I have a paper to write, I will get that last post in, I just need to finish this paper first.
I had someone tell me they were looking forward to...
So, I am now also doing Paranthropus today. That is, alongside Coelacanth and Microceratus. I still need to find some images for Microceratus, so it may be a little while before that gets posted.
Alright, guys, here's my excuse for last week.
I haven’t been on Tumblr for a week, that’s all there is too it, I’m sorry, I’ll have two posts on Tuesday and two on Wednesday for you. I’m thinking Anomalocaris and Goblin Shark on tuesday and Coelecanth and Microceratus (sorry, I forgot about it) on Wednesday. On that note, how should I do the fossil posts from now on? Would you guys prefer if I posted an image of...
UK Scientists Find "Lost" Darwin Fossils
British scientists have found scores of fossils the great evolutionary theorist Charles Darwin and his peers collected but that had been lost for more than 150 years. Dr. Howard Falcon-Lang, a paleontologist at Royal Holloway, University of London, said Tuesday that he stumbled upon the glass slides containing the fossils in an old wooden cabinet that had been shoved in a “gloomy corner” of...
I didn’t realize that I saved the posts instead of queuing them, I’ll post them all immediately.
I've got four posts for you today!
Sorry I was a bad person and slept through tuesday, I was fixing my sleep cycle so it’d be good for Wednesday. That said, I am going to sleep for a bit, but I’ll get the posts prepared. We’ll be working with the Paddlefish, the frilled shark, microceratus, and opabinia! See you later! (I still have to sleep, I was protesting SOPA and PIPA by staying off the internet. I signed the...
