Here's a sampling...
Few organisms are more exotic than tropical pitcher plants.
Many species survive by consuming ants and other insects that fall into their liquid-filled bowls, where they drown and are digested. But Nepethes lowii, a species of pitcher plant found in Borneo, is maybe the weirdest of all: It gets its nutrients not from insects, but from passing tree shrews who use the plant's bowl as a toilet.[from June 22, 2009]
Today's is about numbers, called (strangely enough) Number Sense
The first line is:
You have to count to one thousand to use the letter A in the English language to spell a whole number.
The opening line grabbed me by the eyeballs and inserted tentacles into my brain like some alien creature. I was helpless to resist. I found myself counting to twenty to see if it was true. The pitcher plant lines conjured up a disturbing image in my mind that I am still having trouble banishing.
This guy has a penchant for examining the weird and strange. I like that.
