Default Space alien sighting


Researchers have identified Megaleledone setebos, a shallow-water species endemic to
the Southern Ocean, as the closest living relative to the clade of deep-sea octopuses.


Many of the world's deep-sea octopuses evolved from a common ancestor that still exists in the icy waters of the Southern Ocean, a study has shown.


Did you hear about Otto the troublesome octopus?

Cool as heck.
But as for space aliens.
I'm a confirmed Darwinist.
Matter of fact on a good day,
and lately,there haven't been many.
I could explain chapter and verse.
Try reading the "origin of species"
It's not a a easy read, but there you have it.
And Folks we have Doctor Poto here who will
explain it to you in kinder terms.
Me ? I lose patience.
And why?
I expect you to know.
That's a character defect.
Not yours
Mine.

Awe Rick,
We knew you were from outer space since launch.
Or was that lunch?

Oh man, Michael. You're killing me here! If you'd put in a picture of a nudibranch, you'd have most of my favorite marine invertebrates.

On the other hand, all of these organisms are pretty big, and easy to see with the naked eye. Some time when I have more time (I'm up in Monterey right now) I'll post some of the cool organisms that are microscopic. They'll knock your socks off! Talk about space aliens. Single celled organisms that are basically a floating eyeball. Plants that eat their grazers. Organisms that appear to switch phyla in their different life stages. Amazing stuff!

Per - I'll do what I can. I confess that I've never actually read The Origin of the Species. But I do have a colleague down the hall who looks a lot like Darwin. Muttonchops and all...

Who cares what you want! If he put in a picture of a NudiBeach, he would make the rest of us happy. Geez man, get your priorities out of the swamp and into the gutter where they belong. Don't even get me started on the rest of your word choices...Flippin' scientists.

Geez Rick. Glad to see you're still taking your angry pills. Maybe it's time to cut back...

Besides, we wouldn't want you to accidentally learn something!

OTOH I did like the nudi beach one. And when they're done there, they all head to the nudi bar...
