    Perhaps it is not yet on their website:

    http://www.sciencenews.org/search/se...s&go_submit=go

    or my search "plants" failed for some reason.

    Yes. Unforgetable. They came from afar to serve us... but actually "To Serve Man" was the title of a special book....

    Everybody,
    I am extremely frustrated. I have some good negative plates to show you, but I cannot get PC to recognize my Dynasaur Linotype-Hell scanner. It was fine yesterday. Today I shot indoors, with only natural room light. This was with the blue sensitive emulsion again, but with Steigmann's Solution added to kick up sensitivity by 3 stops. Tomorow I will shoot some of the same with a slightly thicker layer of emulsion, about 9-10 mils, to get the D-max up. One thing I can report is: no significant fogging, even with a sh_t - load of Au.
    Next I will add green sensitize it with SDE3006, as recomended by PE. I
    know that erythrosine works. But only when added prior to percipitation.
    Maybe I can get this scanner working in the morning. But I am getting very frustrated and counter-productive.

    I am convinced that Mantids can distinguish between different people. They can show comfort and affection. They get visably irritated by too many people in a room. Spiders, on the other hand, show no indication that they give a damn about people, one way or another.

    "The Secret Life of Plants" was often thought about at one time....
    If so, what is left to eat?

    Bill;

    You need encouragement from members of the HUMANX federation!

    And, Damon Knight would appreciate our references to his "coookbook".

    The Science News article is there, but even I cannot find it. My "to read" pile and "read recently" pile of books is just too daunting. I speed read and just cannot find some things. Sorry

    I have my eyes set on alternative energy sources... as the future of evloution.

    At the moment we are just recycling the same old magic over and over
    and...
    If the theory is right, that will probably never change.

    Yet the energy of the Universe is so much greater than our tiny needs there seems to be no reason we should restrict ourselves to organic sources of energy....

    Of course, isn't something comming up in 2012 that might get in our way? :o
