    I was really pleased to get a thank you email within a couple hours. When asked, i admitted being Pharyngulated there.

    A chicken coop (with chickens) provides chicken poop.

    PZ, the proper response is “you’re welcome.”

    Sheesh, kids these days, don’t know no manners no how.

    Nerd, very radical of you, but I reckon onions are better than anions.

    (A nice veggie patch could use some nice fertiliser)

    Now, hows about getting them some calamari for their lunch?

    PZ, you’re a good egg under your crusty shell.

    Why don’t I see any girls in the pic ? I hope they get their eggs and education too.

    This is so heartwarming.

    Well done, everyone who donated. This is fantastic!

    Aww… I bet Professor Myers is actually feeling a bit warm and squishy right now after seeing that. What a nice week-ender for him!

    Just superb.

    I see a couple of female students in picture and in other pictures on the site linked to in the post.

    It is just more difficult to determine because everyone has the same hair cut, male or female.

    I feel like a schmuck for not donating. I’ve been to Kasese. Not that that should matter. I still feel like a schmuck.

    The sign alone tells us they’re some sort of hivemind.

    Why don’t I see any girls in the pic ?

    how would one know which of those kids are girls and which are boys? are the uniforms(?) supposed to be gender-coded somehow?

  20. 20

    oh, I see now. I think the girls are supposed to wear aprons (or jumpers?), while the boys wear shorts. so the kids with the grey bits of fabric over the blue shirts would be girls? if so, there’s at least 5 girls in the photo above.

    This is fantastic news. I’m a poultry lover too. Our roos and hens are part of our family. They free range, give us a few eggs here and there, and will never be butchered. They crow outside my window as I write.

    Awesome! Totally awesome.

    The kid with the sign looks hella serious, though. Like the sign should say “I’m coming for you, Professor Myers”.

    lose that schmucky feeling!

    I’m crying now, both happy and sad. The news has been so awful recently, it’s a relief to be reminded about some good in the world.

    I’ve been making lots of loans on kiva.org, as well. Gives me some hope to hang on to.
