Science is way cool
First, the time machine that is the deep ocean recently gave humanity a glimpse of ancient life. The rare frilled shark was filmed and photographed and caught just before its death off the coast of Japan. This mysterious creature has rarely been observed, because it lives in depths 2,000 to 3,000 feet below sea level, far deeper than humans venture. It begs the question of what lives at the ocean's deepest reaches (which go farther down that Everest goes high).
Secondly, cue the Revelations music. We've had a virgin birth. Five baby Komodo dragons emerged from their never-fertilizied-by-a-dude eggs. Woo-hoo! Perhaps we can restore this wonderful endangered species.
It's almost dinorific in this blog today.
