The sperm/egg distinction is the basis for distinguishing between males and females. Since some algae and fungi have sexual reproduction by combining two identical gametes, there is no male/female distinction in these species. This raises the question as to why most large/familiar species reproduce by sperm and egg. One theory for why the male/female distinction is so common is that it facilitated encounters between gametes, in ancestral marine species.

Autogamy: Self-fertilization (also known as autogamy) occurs in hermaphroditic organisms where the two gametes fused in fertilization come from the same individual. They are bound and all the cells merge to form one new gamete.

(Amos, you might also study up on abiogenesis.)

Coprophagia is the consumption of feces, from the Greek κόπρος copros ("feces") and φαγεῖν phagein ("to eat"). Many animal species practice coprophagia as a matter of course; other species do not normally consume feces but may do so under unusual conditions.

Well, yeah, it would be pretty cool if she did get to see some of the more positive comments here, Stilly.

Now take Chongo. He's had to put up with some awful stuff here! You know, the usual specist stereotyping like...

"poop throwing"

Fortunately, he has a very thick skin and he can take it. A more fragile and sensitive chimpanzee would have been emotionally destroyed by the poisonous tongues wagging on this forum.

I think it would be charming, however, to one day learn that a folksinging neighbor of hers in Blackburn prints out the thread of suggestions and says "Susan! Look here--lots of good suggestions!" and it goes from there. Not likely, but at the same time, our threads here at least have context and sometimes content, while the remarks on YouTube are throw-away space for folks who are often barely literate.

Lots of threads are spoiled the way you say, Hawk, and lots of folks can't take hints. It's a matter of how many ways you can hint, cajole, and insult before you move to the bludgeon. :-)

Some people live just to get in arguments with other people and see if they can "win", Stilly. That propensity has driven otherwise trivial threads into hundreds or even thousands of essentially vain and empty posts. To be tempted into posting on such threads is akin to entering the door of a casino...you can play all you want, but the chances of gaining anything profitable from it are extremely slim.

At least in the case of the casino, though, somebody wins. The house wins. ;-)

In the case of those threads I was alluding to you can't even say that. They're more like WWI. Lots of sound and fury. Lots of dirt and mud. Nobody really wins anything.

What I would suggest is, if someone wants to damn Susan Boyle with faint praise....just ignore it. It doesn't matter anyway, and you won't change their opinion one iota by fighting with them about it.

Nor will Susan Boyle ever know or care what anyone here said about her, in all probability.

I would prefer sui-gametic. SInce neither word exists anyway, woth the hell, Archie.

As for ding-dongs, yahoos, bandarlogs, and copracephalic nonentities disturbing the flow of ideation in other threads, I am afraid it is part of our fate in life to learn to rise above such low-grade distractions. Be unto thine own self sufficient acknowledgement, and all will be well.

Say to them, "Coprophagics such are you are autogametes."

Trying to carry on a lucid discussion over on the What Should Susan Boyle Sing Next? thread but Lox and Crow Sister and Sinister Sister/Suibhne O'Piobaireachd, etc keep coming in to suggest that there is something wrong with the messenger if she protests that they come in and say she's awful or damn with faint praise. They can take that conversation somewhere else. Threads are cheap.

If I say FUCK YOU to those folks over on that thread, I imagine it would start a firestorm and a shit-throwing fest, wouldn't it? So I guess I won't say it. Over there. But consider it said. :)

Most species of ant not only remove the wings post mating but eat them. It's an easy food source until she rears up her first batch of slaves workers.

The sale was a complete success...for god's sake take down those signs!!! :D

What a good observation, Janie. I remember spending whole coffee breaks studying the ants in their organized chaos scuttling along the trails behind the office. People thought I was slightly mad, but I never get tired of watching them and considering how they know what they know. Or at least, how they do what they do.

Did all ya'll know that queen ants remove their own wings after mating?

Neither did I. Approached the car this evening to see a red winged ant on the door, grotesquely contorting. It had three wings attached, and one wing was clinging to the metal. I stood and watched as it twisted and struggled to get assorted legs up onto it's back to scrape off each remaining wing at the base. The ant calmed immediately when the last wing came off, briefly explored the last wing as it lay on the door, then sauntered toward the carhood.

I don't know if the wings hurt or itched like mad to get the lady to twist and turn so.

Google is a wonderful thing. I would never have gone to the library to research what I had just witnessed.

'Twasn't lightning. Amos lit off one of those super-mega-firecrackers he has and threw it on the roof to see if it would damage the roof. It did.

The ATF came and said it was equivalent to a half a stick of 60% dynamite. They confiscated the rest of his firecrackers and fined him $10.00 US and told on him. Only he pointed to old Mrs. Schmeerkase and told the Agents that she was his mother (Mom being out at the time) and the Agents turned him over to her "wrath."

Now we all know that Mrs. Schmeerkase is deafer'n a post and not quite with us all the time anymore, so she just gave Amos some cookies and milk, told him to be a good boy (yeah, right!), and sent him home.

Thunderstorm this evening, MOM. Come in off of the porch again, please. You know that lightening hit the house and blasted one dormer a couple of years ago. The blue plastic tarp has finally weathered to kind of match the rest of the roof by now. One of these days one of the Boys will climb up there and finish the repairs and fix the roof.

Yes, Amos. Strictly for target shooting -- say, 100 meters. It has precision front and rear sights, adjusting as little as .01 minute of angle at 100 meters.

No, silly. This.   Only in a single-shot .22 long rifle (5.5mm) caliber. It's a much older gun, probably from the late '60s or early '70s. It's missing a screw in front of the trigger guard, but then I have a few screws loose and missing myself.

I finished Candide and Crome Yellow and am now partway through Daisy Miller, a wonderful portrait of an American girl is Switzerland in the early part of the 20th c.

It is a strange timetravel going back to these old books I read in my youth. What happened was, I found a package of 50 of them for 99 cents I could download to my iPhone. It is such easy reading--lighter than abook, with flickable pages back and forth--a wonder, and perfectly pleasant to read, backlit so you can see it in shadowy places. A gem.

So I am wandering the corridors of time with Aldous huxley and William James, perfectly delightful. I could do it forever.
