    It’s all been cobbled together with Coroplast ™ and a glue-gun. I can see it from the pixels.

    Critters worse than this wash up on the shore every spring with the Sargasso weed where I live. I have tried to keep a few of the sargasso critters alive in tanks but they have not lived more than three months. Local damselfish can make it three years.

    When the sea level rises and the oceans warm Galveston will make the best diving reef ever in 150 years. There’s already a lot of coral here. The city will make a great reef when it is abandoned. We will hold out to the end. Miami and New Orleans will fall before we do.

    My first thought when I saw the picture was ‘That’d make a brilliant chocolate mould’.

    This world is full of so much beauty. A lot of ugly, too, of course, but still. That is so cool.

    this guy is exactly as closely related to a siphonophore as PZ Myers is.
