GM Salmon

The new GM salmon may finally be approved.

The FDA is currently holding public hearings to discuss whether this particular breed should be approved for human consumption. These fish just might be our first genetically engineered livestock.

Orange Mystery Dust

We were only a few pitches into the first inning and everyone's feet were completely orange. No one could figure out why the grass had been spray painted.

Luckily, there was a plant pathologist in center field.

Monarch Caterpillar

I took this picture of what appears to be a monarch butterfly caterpillar on an isolated milkweed plant in my parents' garden a few weeks ago. I was home over the weekend and checked the same plant. The milkweed was dried up and the seed heads gone to fluff and there was no sign of a chrysalis, so I don't know if the bug made it out alive.

Back in Oklahoma, September was the month that was full of monarchs; their migration pathways converged from all over the East as they approached their wintering grounds in Mexico.

Thrown from a Moving Vehicle (legally)

Only two objects can be legally dropped from a moving vehicle in California.

Can you guess what they are?
