Hey there Steph. Thanks for the Bear Hugs. I went looking on the internet for some more Wonder Woman pictures for you and found this one. I didn't want to post it here cause it is not what you would expect (Rated G-questionably). I laughed out loud when I seen it. I wonder if you will think it is funny or gross or both. Have a great Valentine's day!
Hi Steph, thanks! I thought the articles were cool. I used to study microbial ecology and the roles that microorganisms have in ruminant health and nutrition. This is even more strange, that we may engaged in a type of multispecies ecological interplay, with cats as the source and breeding environment for toxoplasma, and human behavior subtly influenced by toxoplasma organisms in our brains. And then the rats of course becoming less fearful of cats, so the cats eat them. It's all conjecture of course.
How our brains may be affected by cats. This is a little misleading - more specifically, by toxoplasmosis, affecting our behavior and personality, to some extent our temperament and identity. Interesting reading, lots of implications.
