Scientific Snippets

  • Bdelloidea, a class of tiny aquatic rotifers that have lost the entire male population somewhere in the evolution process. In addition to the bland asexual reproduction, Bdelloidea absorb and incorporate any DNA that is floating nearby.Sound's like a Lamarckist's wet dream.
  • In addition to stretch marks and permanently dilated pelvis, pregnancy is found to lower one's IQ and possibly cause permanent brain damage. Hiring a surrogate mother is worth more than vanity, perhaps.
