Notes for June 22

  • I'm constantly hearing claims on reddit of really high rates of inaccurate paternity.  This fits with reddit's general attitude towards reproduction and male rights issues.  However, I've never seen any actual evidence.  This article nicely sums up the available evidence, and seems to fit much more closely with what my expectations would be.
  • The fight aging website may deserve some detailed attention at some point.  For now, I'm mostly just interested in naked mole rats and their invulnerability to cancer.
  • The outlook for polar bears.  The data is a little tricky, but the outlook is not particularly good.
  • Finally, don't mess around with Steamer Ducks...especially if you're another duck.
