Weekly Science Blog Roundup: The Asexual Revolution Has Begun

By Melissa Lafsky | January 16, 2009 2:07 pm

Yee-haw! It’s the blog roundup.

Asexuals, unite! Just don’t start recruiting too many to your cause.

• Endangered oceans, rejoice: You have a secret weapon. And it’s fish poop.

• And it’s a good thing, since the best option we humans have come up with for saving all aquatic life is re-naming fish “sea kittens.”

• Facebook graduates from a civil litigation tool to a crime-fighting tool.

• This latest eco-trend actually makes some sense: cat hair clothing and accessories.

•  Today in animal intelligence: Just how smart are bees, anyway?

    It may be tasteless, but I hear a slight alteration of an old commercial in my mind….

    “Ask any mermaid
    you happen to see,
    “What’s the best tuna?”
    Kitten of the Sea!”
