Tangled Bank #90 is now up at The Other 95%. Go read some science from medicine to paleobiology to…creating artificial life. Bwahahaha!

The Weirdest Insects in the World. Example: The female African bat bug has a “spongy reservoir of immune cells” which combat sperm cells that the males directly inject into the blood stream. Some male African bat bugs have this as well since the males seem fairly indiscriminate.

The Top 20 Most Bizarre Experiments of All Time. Mmm. Elephants on acid.
