9406 thursday

Tasty dinner of stir-fried veggies on more naan bread, vegetarian meatloaf (mostly garden eggplant) topped with sauce saved from our selby pickup! Super good, and uber-filling.

Dessert was a treat of choco-chip cookies!

BHK's birthday weekend starts tomorrow, though her birthday is on Monday - I took the day off for us to play! ... I think we'll have a grand time!

Magpies can recognize themselves in a mirror, confounding the notion that self-awareness is the exclusive preserve of humans and a few higher mammals. It had been thought only four species of apes, bottlenose dolphins, and Asian elephants shared the human ability to recognize their own bodies in a mirror. But German scientists reported on Tuesday that magpies, a species with a brain structure very different from mammals, could also identify themselves. It had been thought that the neocortex brain area found in mammals was crucial to self-recognition. Yet birds, which last shared a common ancestor with mammals 300 million years ago, don't have a neocortex, suggesting that higher cognitive skills can develop in other ways.

I had no idea that "the shocker" (description may be NSFW) had a name at all.. I always knew it as er..., um...  "dos en el color de rosa, uno en el hedor". (Pardon the terrible translation.) I'm more of a fan of the Moutza as a rude gesture.
