Yeah, those charismatic megafauna... what a drag. :roll: Yawn city!
I see "charismatic megafauna" as applicable to whales as it is to Messie or Archie :razz:

So THAT was what it was!!! I've been wondering why I can't remember 3 months of my life and am suddenly filled with an insatiable desire to grow a mustache! :madsci: :lol:



In truth though, whales aren't so bad. They are fascinating, but my new brain chemistry just doesn't think too much of it. And three 'Cheers!' for first year students who thought that finally they'd be studying their field of interest and still AREN'T!

Cheers!
Cheers!
Cheers!
(ok, got a little carried away)

Perhaps there lurks in the deep a megafauna vampyromorph...Vampyromegateuthis nosferatis... yet to be discovered. You could get a quick PhD out of that!
