Blueprint for a Deer Head

or cyanotpye if you prefer. last night i did something different. instead of spending my evening on political blogs, i checked out the science end of the spectrum. first i went to afarensis, 'cause that's like old time monkeys, and monkeys are cool. but, even in science the stupids have need to prevail. which was how i ended up at Carl Zimmer's blog, The Loom. click prevail, you can get the details on the politics of the "stupids" there.

the really cool thing was his article at National Geographic. be sure to check the photo gallery, some pretty interesting images by Rosamond Purcell. Carl had chosen the lyre bird to illustrate his blog, but really, the squirrel monkey wins.

there is even a picture of bats, which remind me of flying monkeys.

by the way, i know that afarensis is not really a monkey, but a hominid.

they're all monkeys to me. where do you think we got the chimp from?

Flying monkeys are cool, as long as they're, well, actual monkeys.
