    Lovely! It reminds me of Microcosmos… but more so. But how did that Spongebob villain get in there?

    Are they in any way related to brine shrimp? For some reason they remind me of brine shrimp. . .

    I already have a well-equipped laboratory facility, which, with your help, could easily be relocated to the appropriate underground cave, glacier, secret island, or space station.

    But how exactly would you perform breast-reduction surgery–or any surgery, for that matter–when an individual’s magic bracelets are constantly maneuvering to defend against an incoming scalpel? My point is that you don’t have to–I may be able to do something about this by using current genetic-manipulation methodologies.

    You should check your comments for spam. Great shots. What camera/lens/lighting did you use?
