A Bit of Sunday Reading for You… Fabulous Factoids and Morsels for the Mind

Good morning fellow NERDS. It’s been raining here so I’ve been reading through this wonderful page full of fabulous factoids. I decided that I couldn’t possibly keep them to my self any longer, as they’re too interesting not to share. So here they are – enjoy your Sunday reading!

SciLogs – Morsels for the Mind

Slugs and Dragonflies and Nits – Oh My!

C'mon now, is this not a thing of beauty?

If you want to know more about the critters above and more with a bit of humour thrown in, these videos by The Bug Chicks. I especially like the dragonfly one.

Bugs are cool! Yep, even slugs. Nature’s insect designs are mind-bogglingly clever. And even though I don’t particularly want them around my home, I admit to having a particular respect for the design of cockroaches. Nature’s tanks!

I am, however, quite grateful that bugs aren’t an awful lot bigger than they are. Can you imagine having to run and hide from the 10 foot-long fly coming towards you? Or having to carry a baseball bat to swat mosquitos off at a barbeque?

Have a wander around their site while you’re there. There’s all sorts of interesting stuff on it. Enjoy!!
