PostSubject: Nature's Abode   Sat May 02, 2015 8:56 am



Can you imagine looking over to the next-door neighbor’s yard, and seeing this?!

One day, YouTube user Liam looked out back and was smart enough to grab his camera to capture this viral-worthy moment for all the world to see. He says, “This dog a few houses down has his very own swing set and makes great use of it!”

At first, I didn’t know what to expect. What is this strange swing set doing in his neighbor’s yard? But moments later, when I saw this dog — who appears to be an athletic pit bull or pit bull mix — take a flying leap to grasp the knotted rope in his mouth, I realized this is the stuff of pure joy! I love Liam’s reaction when the pup finally achieves his goal of swinging the day away.

Interesting.

Like me with any kind of spider, I bet Eilene would still step on the panda ant.

I couldn't even watch it! The opening picture was enough. "Catch it" my ass; I'd empty a can of Raid on its sorry carcass.

Laughing   I knew it!  There has to be a word for "fear of ants".  Off to look for it...

That is interesting. Natural selection, aka "micro-evolution". Elephants with crappy tusks survive because poachers don't want them so these elephants pass on their crappy tusk genes so that the next generation has even crappier tusks. After several generations of progressively crappier tusks, eventually nature says "the hell with it" and foregoes tusks altogether.

You see this in nature all the time. Google "peppered moth". That's another classic example of mankind's actions causing an evolutionary change within a species.

I've always been fascinated by this stuff.

Me too Toho, been fascinated definitely, and I also believe the process of evolution is speeding up with human involvement.

I wonder why no one considered that possibility before? It seems logical to me.
