Trivia and tidbits.


Of, relating to, or living in open oceans or seas rather than waters adjacent to land or inland waters: pelagic birds.
I can't go drinking until Ex-Roomie gets out of class. Sigh. So, instead I am working on my paper...the scintillating topic is the Alaskan Sablefish, a/k/a Black Cod fishery. Female sablefish produce pelagic eggs. Just think how clever you'll sound at your next cocktail party with that little bit'o'trivia hidden away in the recesses of your mind. Here's some more -- Sperm Whales have figured out how to use the sound of boat engines to find free food, already all nice and caught for them. Smart little buggers...they even listen specifically for the sound of the longliners turning their engines on and off as they haul in the nets.

I'm disappointed that more of you didn't seem interested in the Exxon Reopener. For one, it's actually probably only about the second legally related thing I've ever put on this blog. And second, it's actually really interesting, and the issue could use the support of getting it out there so that people know that Alaska and Prince William Sound are still suffering the aftereffects of the spill in a way that is very tangible. Oh well, that's what I get for trying to be serious I suppose.

Lastly, I tried to look at the blog on Explorer at school today, and it was all funky. I only use Mozilla, so can the Explorer people comment on whether or not the blog looks all weird to the links are way down at the bottom and stuff??
