    Total Off Topic:
    an alle deutschen Pharynguliten: am 20.2. ist in Dortmund die erste europäische Tagung über Einstellung und Wissen zu Evolution (http://www.biologie.uni-dortmund.de/ewewe/tagung_on.html), wo auch ausdrücklich die Gefahr und die bereits erfolgte Einflußnahme des Kreationismus diskutiert werden. U.a. spricht Anne Brasseur vom Europarat über dieses Thema. Ich habe das PZ schon geschrieben, aber vielleicht ist es bei ihm im Spam gelandet.
    Geht einer von Euch hin? Ich werde da sein und wenn genug kommen, könnte man ein erstes deutsches Pharyngufest veranstalten.

    Bis dahin,
    Corn

    P.S.: Falls sich Österreicher, Schweizer oder Holländer einfinden sollten, sind die selbstverständlich auch angesprochen.

    Hmmm looks suspiciously like a red hot pepper with a fish hook on the left, are you sure you did not take this from the Atlas of Creation?

    Always love seeing the cephalopod. Not because I would find them especially fascinating, but because it means it’s Friday and wine day.

    Sounds like fun, gluck (sorry, I couldn’t resist) with that.

    Chris
    Yeah, it does look quite a lot like a chilli I had growing, once, white spots and everything. Nice.

    hmm… that orange line over the eye makes the little critter look kinda angry

    I once saw a cuttlefish on a shallow reef in Honduras 3 feet deep while snorkeling. My wife and I watched it for five minutes spellbound by the little lights running up and down the length of it. When it left it was so quick that one second it was there and the next not. These things are incredibly beautiful. We are grateful for the experience.

    I bet your wallets were gone once you came to your senses. Insidious little buggers.
