For example, they had a deer's digestive system...but none of the parts was labeled, and there was NO explanation of how rumination *worked*. And no real look at "regular" stomachs.....I mean, yeah, they had some cool things, but.....I think it could have been even better.
Ah, well - we went to the members-only Sneak Peek, which was great. No huge crowds, no (well, very few) screaming kids, and the rest of the museum was just as nice. I LOVE school-days! (And the docents kept telling me that Mondays are member-only until Spring Break.....now I know when to plan our field trips!)
And now for something totally cool:
"Bohemian Gravity" - String Theory in song form. From what I understand (from "real" physicists that have seen this), it's solid (ie: correct). And fantastic - the guy can *sing* (and really, how can you go wrong with sock-puppet Einstein? :lol:)
And, it's Sukkot - we set the tent up inside last night. I wanted it outside, but was overruled (it's 80* at 4 AM, the dogs, the security light in the front and back yard, the dogs.....I gave in.) I survived last night, but need to find more padding for the rest of the week. My hips don't like the hardwood floor!
