Dylan tribute

So as I listened to listened to everyone toast and roast Dylan at his wedding last weekend, I sorta wanted to say something myself. After all he is one of my best friends.

the mouse

I was not going to tell the story of this mouse because I knew my evil blog-commenters would ridicule me. However, after reading Karyn Bosnak’s mouse-story I figured I would go ahead and tell mine anyway.

Basically Monday I am reading in bed when I see something stirring. I look up and see a mouse […]

The Post had an interesting article, reprinted from New Scientist magazine, that looked at picking a mate from a scientific perspective:

As a scientist studying human behavior, I am not too surprised by the mysterious nature of how we go about choosing a partner. Mate selection is a highly complex process. We are consciously aware […]
