Me folk wonders: If we put pterosaurs in an analysis with birds, using a bird as an outgroup, would that show that pterosaurs evolved form birds? And if we added more birds, would that show even more that pterosaurs evolved form birds?

What does Dr. Pterosaur think?

Dr. Pterosaur doesn't do "think".

Thinking is for lesser mortals.

Dr. Pterosaur does "pontificate from a position of ignorant ineptitude".

Hey  :whyyou:  I just just maded a 12 volt one. Printed case and a 80mm computer fan and a pot. Uses any 12v wall wart.

Not using it though. Want it running 24/7 to stir my spirulina culture and don't trust it unsupervised. Gonna have to do another with proper protection on the power supply.

Mines better coz i used glow-in-the-dark abs.  :cheer:


ETA: "flea" refers to the little stir bars.

I wanted white so I could see the colour change. The one I have in the lab has a stainless top, which makes it damn hard to see the colour. Post pics!!

You are being awfully shy about saying how old you think the youngest and oldest sloth poop is, Dave.

It would seem to be quite important to your argument as to how quickly it was pooped.
No it's not important. What's important is showing how ridiculous it is to spread 15 (or 60) sloth years of poop over 2000 years. 

You still haven't understood that showing that A is reasonable is not the same as showing that not-A is ridiculous.

THEN we can look at Brown's model

No, do that now.  If Brown's model is correct, you can then figure out how long the sloths took to poop and when they stopped.  If it isn't, then you can use a different model to figure that out.  Trying to discover the ONLY NON-RIDICULOUS timetable for an extinct sloth to poop over is utterly stupid.  Find out what the time parameters are first THEN you can figure out what sloth behaviour is most likely given those parameters.

and see what we've got. THEN maybe we can make some educated guesses about sloth poop that are not in la la land.

You've forgotten what this thread is about, haven't you?

Go on, deal with Mike's numbers.
