Yeah, it rattled, but I think it's actually a gopher snake. - Amit Patel
I think there's a CA snake that mimics a rattle...didn't remember it being a gopher snake, though. I get the shit scared outta me when I see *any* snake. - Spidra Webster

Will Climate Change Mean Terrible Food? - Pacific Standard http://www.psmag.com/navigat...
So even if plants will thrive in a high CO2 environment, it turns out that a high CO2 atmosphere will have a negative impact on nitrate-dependent plants' ability to assimilate nitrate. - Victor Ganata
Probably just speculation or conspiracy theory! </denialist> - Andrew C (✔)
Increased difficulty assimilating nitrate —> decreased protein production —> downregulation of enzymes that facilitate photosynthesis - Victor Ganata
Nitrate assimilation is inhibited by elevated CO2 in field-grown wheat - Nature Climate Change - 2014 Apr 6 http://www.nature.com/nclimat... - Victor Ganata
I'm sure GMOs can fix that. - Todd Hoff
"Total protein and nitrogen concentrations in plants generally decline under elevated CO2 atmospheres. Explanations for this decline include that plants under elevated CO2 grow larger, diluting the protein within their tissues; that carbohydrates accumulate within leaves, downregulating the amount of the most prevalent protein Rubisco; that carbon enrichment of the rhizosphere leads to... more... - Victor Ganata
That assumes that you'll be able to find food that doesn't begin with the word "Soylent". - Steven Perez
Sorry, Monsanto has that trademarked. - Todd Hoff
Yeah, I'm sure Monsanto will give away its drought-tolerant, nitrate-assimilation-enhanced GMO seeds for free for the continued survival of humanity and not try to make massive profits while people starve to death, amirite? - Victor Ganata

"I was asked to prepare a short article on the dangers of cloning" - first sentence in an article in the newsletter published by one of the managed care companies I'm contracted with entitled "Beware of Cloning"
"I immediately viewed the DVDs for all of the Jurassic Park films, and then prepared a paper on why physicians should not allow patients to have themselves or their family members cloned to create new people through the use of DNA and other technologies. That paper was rejected by this newsletter. I was told to discuss 'cloning' in the context of electronic medical records." - Victor Ganata

72 years ago starting on April 9, 60,000-80,000 Filipino and American prisoners of war were forced to march 80 miles by their Imperial Japanese captors in what is now known as the Bataan Death March.
:( - Jenny H. from Android
Two of my grand uncles were among the prisoners of war. One died or was killed at the prison camp at the end of the march, while one managed to escape or was rescued at some point. After the war, the U.S. government paid my grandfather an indemnity for the death of his brother. My mom says that this indemnity is what allowed her and her siblings to afford an education. - Victor Ganata
I knew several survivors of the Bataan Death March, some of whom were relatives. But I didn't know about it until long after I first knew them. They never said a word about it. I think, like many who survived the Holocaust, they just preferred not to talk about it. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
My mom was born 11 days after Japan surrendered to the Allies (but 7 days before the formal instrument of surrender was signed aboard the USS Missouri.) She says her name was suggested to her parents by an American soldier who had helped liberate her home town. Her older siblings and cousins used to scare her by telling her stories of Imperial Japanese soldiers summarily executing... more... - Victor Ganata
I just remembered that my grand uncle who survived the death march died 20 years ago in April. - Victor Ganata

You okay? :( - Tamara J. B.
Yeah, it turned out just fine, Tam, thanks. Wore a brace yesterday afterwards and it feels fine today. My shin splint on my right leg is bothering me more. No running next week during Spring Break, so hopefully that (combined with the new shoes) will allow it to recover. - Stephen Mack

i blame the weather this year. - holly #ravingfangirl
Huh. I've never seen it do that. - Jennifer Dittrich
me either! it supposedly can happen because of maturity, stress from weather, or any number of reasons. - holly #ravingfangirl
(i did get rid of them all) - holly #ravingfangirl
and yes, i did do the first harvest today. not a huge bunch, but maybe close to 2 lbs? I haven't weighed it yet. - holly #ravingfangirl
one of the new neighbors called down from his 2nd story window asking what kind of squash this was. "it's rhubarb, actually." "Oh! Rhubarb!" lol - holly #ravingfangirl

Merlin Bird ID app – Instant Bird Identification Help for 350 North American birds
New bird mobile app looks promising — they narrow down candidate birds based on size and color and behavior (which you enter) and location and season (automatic). I've used Petersen and iBird and am happy with neither; I'll try this one. - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
I tried it out, and I'm quite happy with it so far. It seems much nicer for casual birdwatchers like me, and I'm guessing it's not for birdwatching geeks. - Amit Patel
