On Earth Day 2008, I drove over 150 miles in a car, alone.
I feel bad about the carbon footprint (stupid infrastructure determining my choices again), but I am happy with why: I finally was able to go out to the Coastal Studies Lab and get some data that will help wind up some experiments my student and I started back in December or so with some shrimp.
If you've ever wanted to imitate a scientist, just watch the picture below for 10 minutes.
Okay, now do that 14 more times.
The shrimp were pretty subdued and didn't do a tremendous amount of behaving for me. Which, in the context of the experiment, is actually interesting.
