Aaaaaah! Been too busy today. No time for a long post, but likely tomorrow.
In the meantime, Twitter links!
Think slugs can't be tender or sexy? Think again.

I was driving home today and saw my ex on the side of the road.
As I continued past I reflected on how the phrase “I’d hit that” changes over time.

One of my favorite very specific image genres is cats that look completely unprepared for the realities of parenthood. pic.twitter.com/Gmq47hNd5V

"To win your freedom, you must defeat a gladiator in a fight to the death."
"Who will I fight?"
"You get your choice of Tesha the Slicer, Deval the Crusher, or Boring Ron."
"Oh. I think I'll take Boring Ron, please."
"Everyone always does. I'll go tell him to warm up his drills."

And a pic of Josh Duhamel just because:
Slugs are definitely sexy—that’s why Ariolimax dolichophallis is our school mascot (it’s also endemic to the campus). Not only do these hermaphrodites have penises as long as their bodies, they also have sex for up to 24 hours. Of course, sometimes they get stuck and have to gnaw off the penis (their own or their partners). The first attempt to sequence their genome ended up with almost no heterozygous sites—there is a lot of inbreeding or selfing going on.
