Drill & practice with genetics: all sex linkage today » « The UMM D&D Wilderness Adventure! Why would you want a partner unwilling to talk about coelacanths? That sounds like an excellent date (I am far, far out of the dating pool, so personally not interested.) The only possible error is that they could have talked about spiders, instead.

Better to find out before it gets serious.
” Well it’s been a wonderful evening,would you care to come inside for a coffee,and have a look at my
vast collection of BBBVS’s”?*
What’s a boy to do?
Bloody Big Bastard Venomous Spiders .
A lecture… did she prepare slides and/or bring a blackboard to scribble equations on? (Okay… I’m a maths guy, not a fish person… what do biologists do in a lecture?) That might be going a bit too far for a first date, I’d save that for when you spend your first weekend together.
Just recently, a guy in Maryland was found dead among his collecion of 124 snakes, many of them venomous.
I’m just guessing here but I doubt if David Riston had many repeat dates after he brought someone home once.
One mistake could be burying the lede. If you don’t start out with the fact that one was found alive in 1938, it will be just another one of those ho-hum extinct species first dates.
Also, no matter how much you’re tempted, don’t say “So it wasn’t a coelacanth after all. It was a See Luh Can!” (Uh, trust me on this one.)
Definitely wasn’t me. That would so be my kind of date!
My last date preached her faith and made it clear that there would be no sex before marriage with her!
Obviously, the guy is silent out of his shame in not knowing basic facts about evolutionarily extreme examples. When someone’s weakness has been so exposed, he knows he can’t aspire to becoming competitive.
Maybe he was more into Ichtyostega Gunnari? You know, more of a terrestrial predator, the lion of its time.
If you want to hang out with people with a creative vocabulary, pick the Scots.
“Scotland leads the world in insult research and design, finds study”
Does she have an OnlyFish account? Asking for a friend…

Why is the comment system so bugged out right now?

nope still broken

This is so annoying. All I wanted to say is I know someone who is into cuttlefish. And FTB has decided to not cooperate.
I’m more into herpetology than ichthyology, personally, but I still appreciate the overlap between the disciplines. If this ever happened to me, I’d return serve with a 30 minute lecture on crested geckos that I always have at the ready (because they are, objectively, the most adorable reptile in the world even though there are quite a few strong contenders).
I don’t know, but her OnlyFins is to dive for.
(I’ll see myself out…)

She might be well advised to vet future dates from the roles of SPOOF (Society for the Protection Of Old Fishes*) membership.
*An incorporated nonprofit in Washington State.
I really can’t think of why he hasn’t called . . . unless maybe she innocently committed some egregious faux pas such as putting coffee in his wine.
There’s a lot of missing details here. How did the Q&A go? Were there slides?
Steve Caldwell says
If one has already read Gaining Ground: The Origin and Evolution of Tetrapods by Jenny Clack and Neil Shubin’s Your Inner Fish, it might be an interesting date even for the layperson who isn’t an ichthyologist.

Presumably the guy’s just waiting to reemerge after 65 million years.
