Oh December-meme, December-meme…

All the cool kids were doing it, so I had to join in, too. [For those playing the home game, select the first sentence from the first post of each month and post the lot. I decided to include the first photo of each month, too.]

A few days ago I mentioned that paleontologist Terry Gates was going to appear on Bill O’Reilly’s show to speak on the subject of whether global warming killed the dinosaurs.


April – “On to better things…

I suppose today is as good a day as any to break the news to you all, especially since Janet has just made an announcement similar to the one I’m about to make.


May – “Freaking Out at Finals

I’ve been really down this week, biting my nails about finals and my academic future (or potential premature end of it).

December – “The life, and death, of Ota Benga

During the past week I’ve been tracking down information about various performing primates and famous apes like “Consul” and John Daniel, but as I did so something kept bothering me.

Wow… that really wasn’t half as interesting as I thought it would be.
