    I don’t think it’s possible to love him and feel so embarrassed for him at the same time.

    Yet here I am.

    Someone found a handout from a Women’s Studies class from 1988 called When You Meet A Lesbian: Hints for the Heterosexual Female. I feel like this should still be taught in classes today.

    My personal favorite are:

    • Do not immediately start talking about your boyfriend or husband in order to make it clear you are straight. She probably already knows.
    • Do not run away from the room. This is rude.
    • Do not expect her to be excited about meeting a heterosexual as you may be about meeting a lesbian. She was probably raised with them.

    February on this blog is going to be Daily Paleo Art Month! Because doing dinosaurs all last July was so much fun I want to do this thing again.
     Every weekday for the rest of the month I’ll be posting a new image of something strange, obscure, or just plain interesting from the fossil record — only this time we’re staying firmly outside of the Avemetatarsalia (pterosaurs and dinosaurs/birds) to give some less famous critters the spotlight.

    #1: Helicoprion

    A cartilaginous fish from off the southwest coast of the ancient supercontinent Gondwana (and later Pangaea), Helicoprion first appeared in the late Carboniferous (310 million years ago) and survived up until just past the massive Permian-Triassic extinction (250mya). Despite looking rather shark-like and possibly reaching sizes of around 6m (20ft) long, it was actually closer related to the chimaeras.

    For a long time, the only parts of this animal known were bizarre buzzsaw-like spiral whorls of teeth, since cartilage skeletons very rarely fossilize. The ideas for just where in the body this structure was positioned were ridiculously varied.

    The most recent reconstruction is based on CT scans of a well-preserved fossil with jaw and skull elements, which showed the whorl taking up the whole lower jaw. It also turns out Helicoprion had no upper teeth at all. It’s thought to have used this arrangement to shred and crush up squid and other soft-bodied marine prey, but there’s still very little known about how such a unique type of teeth evolved in the first place.

    I think evolution must work like Ikea, because occasionally nature completely misread the directions and puts a piece on backwards.

    When I was a child, it was believed that animals became extinct because they were too specialized. My father used to tell us about the saber-tooth tiger’s teeth — how they got too big and the tiger couldn’t eat because he couldn’t take game anymore. And I remember my father saying, with my brother sitting there, ‘I wonder what it will be with the human beings that will be so overspecialized that they’ll kill themselves off?’

    My father never found out that my brother was working on the bomb.
