New Fossil Takes A Bite Out Of Theory That Sharks Barely Evolved
“Sharks have looked more or less the same for hundreds of millions of years. But a newly discovered fossil suggests that under the hood, a modern shark is very different from its ancient ancestors.
The finding, published in the journal Nature, strongly implies that sharks are not the “living fossils” many paleontologists once thought they were. “They have evolved through time to improve upon the basic model,” says John Maisey, a paleontologist at the American Museum of Natural History who helped identify the fossil.”

The height of pollen season can be a blur.

Art just takes time. The idea is the easy part. It’s the possible references, the drawing, the mixing, the constant brush cleaning, …

It takes time.

I hope SeaWorld keeps churning out videos and cringe-worthy tweets because right now they’re actually digging their own grave :’)

I hate it when I wake up at 3 am really hungry. I have to ignore it and fall back to sleep. I was going to make an omelet for dinner but just stir fried (in only a tablespoon of coconut oil -is it sauteed? Will look up later) squash and vegetables. I’m having the omelet tonight. I did have some Terra chips with black bean dip and some guacamole too. But I’m oh so hungry!

I saw the brainwashing ad for T25 and I must say that only 25 min sounds good. But I’d still want an hour cardio like spin at least 2-3 times per week. I can imagine how hungry I’d get if did T25. It sounds good though. 25 minutes is doable in the am.

Back to sleep.

The kids act up in the spring. It is an actual phenomenon.

A student keeps drawing penises on the wall at school. Now I have to form a penis patrol (of course I have to call it wall patrol).

Yes, indeed cool adventurous dreams lately. It must be the pollen in the air. I received a bit of advice today that cracked me up concerning someone. If the person seems like a Mr. Spock ( or a female version ) then be leery. That is so funny. It is hysterical.

If the ears are too large and it appears human but sounds like a computer,… wonder

Now I finally see the model. I just thought it was odd looking like a lumpy paper mache object.
