Did you know that the Director of Public Health in DC is named Pierre Vigilant? |
Also, they're finding the female vision (in this case, how the type of watery habitat affects what colors female cichlids (fish) see best, which then affects what colors they "like") can be a strong factor in the evolution of new types of fish. Which might explain why I, with less than stellar vision, tend to go for guys who are umm, easy to spot. Unless I'm picking up a guy in a bar, when it tends to be the guy closest to me with the best personal hygiene...also related to vision...and my over-developed olfactory senses.
And that female guppies will risk their lives just go get away from the boys. If you've ever had guppies (I used to breed them in college for $$ and science credits) you know that the males are huge pains in the, um genital opening, acting like maurauding hordes of frat boys high on testosterone and spanish fly, chasing the females constantly, displaying, look at me, look at me, omigod aren't I pretty, look at me. And then, when ignored, when she's just trying to get a little breakfast, they'll go for it anyway, pokety-poke, hey look at...pokety-poke.
So, females, a dull brownish/goldish color, will venture out into deep water where there are more predators, just to get some peace and the boys won't follow 'cause their brightly colored selves will get snatched up in a heartbeat.
I can so relate.
Then, in the department of taking food over the edge, I give you:
These are other people's ideas, btw, I cannot take credit for them.
Take two grilled cheese sandwiches, then put a hamburger in the middle, using them as buns.
I would alter it, so that there's a tomato slice inside each grilled cheese. And if I had the means to, would put sauteed mushrooms and onions on the burger.
I also plant the idea of bacon cinnamon rolls. Get the cinnamon rolls that come in a tube. Before you roll them up, place a slice of bacon inside. I'd use par-cooked or pre-cooked, myself. But otherwise, cannot improve on it.
