Paleo Profile: Alcide d’Orbigny’s Dawn Beast

Vertebrate paleontology has a sample size problem. Only a fraction of all the creatures that ever lived became preserved in the fossil record, and an even tinier sliver of that array has been discovered, cleaned, and studied. Even the most famous [...]

Reference Hey, they're a billion in the hole, but 1.4 mill is going to study earthquakes.  That's US dollars! All the existing seismologists have a big footprint on their rears and left the building, mainly because it was going to fall down [...]

I've admitted that I am a luddite (really, just a cynic about the brightest, flashiest new thing) here and here and... It will come as no surprise that I was an extremely late smartphone adopter. I was essentially forced to get a smartphone because [...]
