Just checking in. No, I haven't lost my password.

Oh. While I'm here, if you have kids who like science, or feel like a kid when reading about science, come like the Facebook page for Frontiers for Young Minds, a journal with articles written for kids by scientists and peer-reviewed by kids:

"Although I left her lab 10 years ago, I feel I can't be impartial in my review because of the profound effect she had on my science and my life."

Sometimes, declines to paper reviewing requests suggest who the great scientific mentors are.

Hearing "So I read on Facebook today..." is apparently my trigger to completely shut down all cognitive function and go into standby mode.

How appropriate!  Because it also indicates that the person talking to you has apparently shut down all cognitive function as well...

Crazy Hair Bug

This strange little planthopper is only 5 mm long and is one of 60 new species discovered by field biologists in the mountains of Suriname. It is still in its immature stage, before metamorphosis into the adult insect. The white tufts are actually waxy filaments and may be a decoy for predators, allowing the tiny bug to hop away to safety.

Bad news for science.  This means the technique has officially "jumped the shark" making it too passé for a Nobel prize.
