A beautiful aurora!
Nevermind Texas, don't mess with Alaska. Things I love about it for 500...
Life discovered on dead hydrothermal vents
Eee, same niche colonized by different flavors of extremophile at different times in its geological history. ^^ Living things rock.
Flexibeast on attractiveness and trans folks in porn
Oh heck yeah. I love some of Tobi Hill-Meier's work in this area, but on the whole it's a big complex messed-up situation.
Nematodes communicate using precise chemical "language"

Restored wetlands don't measure up
Not surprising -- it's like old growth forests: those long-established patterns add a great deal of biological and ecological complexity that's missing from replanted ones. It takes a long time to build up, yet it does a lot of the heavy lifting in terms of making that biome a productive, resilient entity.
Donate to Bobby Montoya, that trans girl scout who's been making the internet rounds lately.
Incidentally: what a cutie! I do hope that this trend of gradual normalization doesn't reverse -- it's nice to see that these days some folks can come out in their single digits and be supported by their parents. ^^
Speaking of cuties: Baby crow!
