Re: Monumental Project Underway To Sequence the Genome of Every Complex Species on Earth
Important work mate ! This is why scientists are in my experience almost always good, decent human beings. They want to make the world a better place for people - the majority of them, anyway. You are clearly in that majority, so on behalf of humanity, thank you :-)

Re: Monumental Project Underway To Sequence the Genome of Every Complex Species on Earth
Not a problem :-)
I've always found photos of dragonflies so beautiful - iridescent colours and amazing forms. (The big ones do scare the crap out of me on the odd occasion they've flown into a holiday home where I've been staying, though).

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Re: Off on a road trip to Utah
Sorry to hear that mate - I hope they've caught it early enough to be able to treat it. Fingers crossed for you and your wife and family.
