@edgarblythe,
I see theyve just found a whole slew of Galapogos tortoises that were either
1thought to be extinct or

2. possible developed from some tortoises that are now extinct.

I was reading a local paper at breakfst and we hadda get going to the trout stream so I only got the basic story.

@farmerman,
I saw not long ago that some had returned. I see occasional online bits about tortoises that makes them more complex in behavior than I had previously thought.

@farmerman,
In their original incarnation the Ninja turtles are some badass mofos.

@edgarblythe,
In my climate change thread, I reported on anthrax spores which came back when permafrost melted in the Russian arctic. The aboriginal people in region, the Nenets, are reindeer herders. Traditionally, they eat the meat from their first slaughter raw. But in 2013, one child died from anthrax, and they lost more than 2300 reindeer. Now, they are careful to cook the meat thoroughly.

9,900-year-old skeleton of horribly disfigured woman found in Mexican cave
By Laura Geggel - Associate Editor a day ago

The woman's skull had three injuries, likely from a hard object, and dents, possibly from a syphilis-like disease.

@Setanta,
My ancestors were using tools way before that. My fellow crows trace their ancestry way farther back than you monkeys.

I don't think this has been posted yet:



I didn't know that eohippus (dawn horse) originated in North America.

(Damnit, EB, I've watched so many of your videos in this thread, that when I got to youtube to listen to music, this stuff pops up!)

I wish youtube would divide music from the rest of the vids. They flood my feed with all kinds of irrelevant ****.

It was a perfect scenario for horses until the meat packers decided to harvest as many as they could catch.

@Setanta,
I discovered that, on youtube, you can make up play lists which , when you hit on yours, will keep you in whatver area you wish.
(Im always looking at woodworking and knife making).

Its still a cool site ya gotta admit.

I agree, EB, that would be great. I also agree with FM that it's the best thing going of its type.
