Welcome Squid Overlords

NYT 03-16-08
Our Pic of the Day comes from catching up on my reading of random notes, this one about how the prolific Dr. Oliver Sacks, pictured above, is fascinated by stromatolites.

Okay, but, what I was really interested in finding out about was that "the cephalopod biomass is now greater than the human biomass. We don’t know how many there are or how big they get. We are NOT ready. Play it smart." Don't say you haven't been warned. WTF? Let's just say that it's not the cockroaches that are going to take over the world.
