Teaching human evolution at the University of Kentucky: There are some students I’ll never reach.
"One student explained that as a devout Catholic he had no choice but to reject evolution. He accused me of fabricating the pope’s statements. When I explained that he could go to the Vatican website for verification or call the Vatican to talk to a scientist, he insisted that there was no such information available from the Vatican. He then pointed his finger at me and said the only way he would believe me is if then–Pope John Paul II came to my class to confirm these quotes face-to-face. The student then stomped out, again slamming the auditorium door behind him." - Ken Morley
And if the pope did show up more excuses would be sure to follow. - Todd Hoff
I was surprised to learn the Vatican has it's own astrophysicist http://archive.wired.com/wired... - Ken Morley
It was like this in New Mexico, as well. I tried to get students to realize they could accept evolution and still be Christians. Some could, but many couldn't. - Jenny H. from Android

I was teasing our group about sea snakes the other night, then the next day saw one of these guys on the beach.

According to http://news.co.cr/snakes-... "They are a highly venomous sea snake related to the cobra" and "the national laboratory on serpents does not keep any antidote in stock" - Ken Morley
But don't worry, they are very docile and unlikely to bite. O_O - Ken Morley

DId you read the comment from the woman whose husband did not know what kind of snake it was and so picked it up and put it back in the sea because he felt sorry for it? It's a good thing these snakes don't bite humans. - Friar Will
It's pretty. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Very pretty. - Anika

Spiny clams

I found some shells like these on the beach. They appear to be some type of venus clam (family veneridae). Does anyone know the purpose of the spiny protuberances? - Ken Morley
hi Ken, it's look like those spines are for defense against predation. you may want to check some info about this interesting species http://www.edulifedesks.org/class... - Margot
That is so interesting, thanks Margot! - Ken Morley

Fun fact: Alberta, a Canadian province with an area of 255,500 sq mi, has been rat free for more than 50 years.
What, they're stopped at the border? - Brent Schaus from iPhone
I just read this article. It turns out, stopping them at the border is exactly what they do lol: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news... - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Yep. I found out via this post in Not Always Working http://notalwaysworking.com/i-smell... - bentley
"Alberta rat hunters are aided in their policing efforts by features of the natural landscape: boreal forests in the north, the Rocky Mountains in the west, and vast prairie to the south (whose low human populations do not allow human-dependent rats to survive)." - I was wondering why BC rats didn't make the trip. - Ken Morley
LOL, there's a FaceBook group trying to legalize pet rats in Alberta. https://www.facebook.com/Legaliz... - Ken Morley

This weed is the bane of my vegetable garden each year. Turns out it's edible and highly nutritious! I'll be throwing it in the juicer now instead of the compost. :) - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
"Nutritionally, purslane is a powerhouse. It has more than double the omega-3s that kale has and, as far as I know, more than any other leafy green ever analyzed. It has over four times the vitamin E of turnip leaves, more than any other leafy green ever analyzed. It has glutathione and other antioxidants and about as much iron as spinach. It also has reasonable amounts of other nutrients as well as phytochemicals, like all these leafy greens." - Ken Morley
My parents get this in their farm share every year - it is pretty tasty. - Jennifer Dittrich
Used to grow this at my old place. I'd add it to spinah and chicken dishes. - Anika
I think it was present in in some soil I got a few years back. It's spread to all my garden beds now. - Ken Morley
it has a slightly tart, refreshing taste. i like it. you can make a salad of it with tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and lemon juice. or mix it with yoghurt and garlic for a spread or side dish. in turkey it is quite a popular vegetable, we make a dish of it with a soffrito of tomatoes and onion, you can also add mince meat and a little bit of rice. actually i had the dish for lunch today :) - grizabella
