Q: Do lizards dream?
A: Don’t know, but a lot of people are trying to find out:
Partial homologies between sleep states in lizards, mammals, and birds suggest a complex evolution of sleep states in amniotes.

Giant Woolly Bear Caterpillars: They’re Multiplying.

Thursday, 9 July 2020

In December 2007 we broke this news story (image above) and the main-stream media ignored it. Some commenters here dismissed it as absurd lies and #fakenews, while others provided first-hand accounts and evidence. Suddenly and without warning, a cryptic hint about new evidence appeared recently:

We contacted Ms. Ally because we just had to. It was well worth it: apparently the rare Giant Woolly Bear caterpillars are infesting parks throughout the US northeast, and she provided an original un-enhanced photo to prove it.


Ms. Ally did not return requests for specifics, i.e. location, number, unusual behavior, mating songs or personal hygiene, but we will update this post with further information when/if it becomes available.

“Citrus County and King’s Bay are world famous as the ‘Manatee Capitol of the World.’ People flock here from all over the world to experience this one of a kind experience. There are many local tour guides, boat rentals, and snorkel or dive shops located right on King’s Bay in Crystal River. The mild, 72 degree waters are maintained by a constant flow of millions of gallons of water per day from the deep natural springs. The manatees migrate into these warm waters during the cooler winter months making it a natural haven where you can swim with the manatee.”

No, YOU can swim with the manatee, not me.
They poop in there.

My WebEx Meeting Notes 28 May – 12 June 2020

9AM daily. Pen on paper, 8-1/2 x 11, negative image.

Out of curiosity, I inverted the black & white, and the image spooked me – there are things crawling around in there that I didn’t see while doodling (like the giant robopillar rising up from the cityscape below).

Here’s the undoctored version:
