That’s all very well if they travel at night
but what, I wonder, do they do if they
want to travel by day?

Five people shared the Ig Nobel prize for Biology this year for that piece of research! (I wonder how much it cost.)

    Not sure – even after trying to read the article. Just another part to go bad and give us grief or is it able to protect the parts we knew we had?
