—and Eating Oatmeal, says Smithsonian.
The Paris Zoological Park is home to some 180 species, many of which would be considered standard zoo fare: zebras, giraffes, penguins, toucans, turtles and the like. But this week, the Zoological Park will unveil a new exhibit featuring a bizarre creature that has surprised and puzzled scientists for decades. It’s formally known as Physarum polycephalum, but zoo staff have dubbed it the “blob.”
Sometimes these things just write themselves.
The Washington Post ponders, “Why Elizabeth Warren is getting such good press.”
Darwin finds himself literally rolling on the floor laughing his ass off at his discovery of the, shall we politely say, “closed” nature of the New Democrats gene pool. He finds this particularly ironic due to their fixation on making references to ‘cousins’ and ‘Arkansas’ and ‘Trump voters’. But, of course, he notes sagely, anyone that believes “Socialism” works is a few genomes short of 23andMe.
Natural selection deems that some individuals serve as a warning to others. Who are we to disagree? The next generation, ever and anon, is descended from the survivors
Oopsie!! “Elizabeth Warren listed race as ‘American Indian’ on Texas bar registration.”
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren listed her race as “American Indian” on a State Bar of Texas registration card in 1986, the Washington Post reported Tuesday.
The Post’s reporting represents a previously unknown instance of Warren claiming her race as Native American and the first document that appears to definitively show Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. According to the Post, Warren has previously declined to answer whether she or an assistant filled out forms in which her race was listed as Native American.
Warren’s longstanding assertions of having Native American heritage have dogged her political career and provided fodder for attacks from President Donald Trump. Her use of DNA testing to confirm her limited Native roots last year was met with fierce criticism from some Native American groups.
