So we’ve been posting again at a pretty steady pace! If you missed it, here’s what we wrote about the last two months. Apparently, we’ve been in the mood for wildlife.
– Jay’s nature photos, let him show you them!
– What’s thinking outside of the box compared to thinking outside of your scale?
– Parrots like their food rancid and nasty. (Emily’s post incidentally caught a rather radical wave on Facebook!)
– Everything awesome you ever needed to know about those alien-looking Horseshoe Crabs.
– A colorful fireworks show courtesy of fireflies.
– Why a sustainable economy isn’t automatically a sustainable ecology.
– What massive patience it takes to hunt for meteorites in the scalding sun.
The Sieve’s writers discussed a variety of topics in March, from log jams to fish to planets to GPS. Here are a few links if you missed them:
– Over a century go, there was an enormous log jam, over 100 miles long in the American South.
– When antidepressants get into the water, they can have screwy effects on fish.
– Three cheers for the coolness of outer space!
– We’re at a point where drivers take GPS tech for granted. So how does it figure out where you are exactly?
– Calvin and Hobbes had an undercurrent of science commentary and humor.
– Check out the secrets and subtleties of the National Cryptology Museum.
In case you missed it, here’s a quick run-down of each of the inaugural blog posts from The Sieve’s writers this past month.
– Why do veterinarians sometimes throw newborn puppies through the air? It makes sense when you know the answer.
– On a long road trip? Why not gawk at some hawks while you pass the time?
– “So there I was, dude. No shit — there I was.” River guides know how to tell a good tall tale.
– They may be called blood thinners, but that little term doesn’t reflect what really goes on in your bloodstream.
