Spring sprang! Time to get nerdy on the deck


We had snow this morning, but now it’s warm — it must be 5, 6°C, so I sat out on the deck for the first time in the season and talked to myself about genetic accommodation, as one does.

    That was a good one. The lattice work on the deck had an amazing contrast with the red shirt. The graphics disintegrating down screen effect was cool. The subject matter was cool too, especially the contrast between assimilation and accommodation. You managed to fit a definition of phenocopy in. That is something not seen very often. Kudos.

    The outdoors thing might be a cool trend. You could expand that somehow. Use nature for your backdrop while developing your incorporation of graphics.

    More difficult to follow than the last video but, on the other hand, a good illustration of how normal genetic processes can be misinterpreted as the inheritance of acquired characteristics.

    For optics, can you involve the demon cat?
    Shirley she could demonstrate … something.

    Up against the house, in full sun, it was probably closer to 10 or 12°C.

    “nerdy on the deck” would be a cool name for a band or… something. Hey, maybe as part of my tag. Yeah, that’s the ticket!
