Quote of the week

From Labrat, the feminine half of the Atomic Nerds:

"Fetuses are not 'female by default'. They’re tetrapods by default."

If you say so . . .

Go read her whole article. It's good stuff, despite my uncontrollable giggles at the mental image inspired by her conclusion!

(Ducks hastily for cover!)

You and I are tetrapods, we are all tetrapods together. EMBRACE THE ICHTHYOSTEGA WITHIN. FLEX THOSE FIVE DIGITS!

Peter said...

Labrat, I daren't embrace your inner ichthyostega . . . Wing would kill me!

Seven digits and thorn-shaped teeth. Ummm...

Forearms unable to extend fully? Embracing the inner Ichthyostega!
