I know, I know: give me a break! I started a new job.

OK, so not the most intellectual post to kick this off again. I just wanted to show you the Best Flickr Gallery Ever: Wang Shaped Things. Proud that one of my photos has become a part of nature’s wonders.

Enjoy people, enjoy.

Sea Horse baby birth/orgasm

Sea horses are very underrated creatures. Indeed, it is true that it might be to do with the fact we don’t see them very often, so don’t think about them a lot.

Check out this video
. Nice and educational. About 3.18 mins in, Sweetpea, the seahorse featured, passes her eggs onto the male sea horse (er – stallion??) and HE gives birth. It looks like an orgasm of tiny white things – and in fact they are baby seahorses.

Now, I know “birth” and “orgasm” may not necessarily go together in one’s mind, but just watch it. Maybe I am just a bit sick.
