This is your warning.

“I’ve been married for five years. To the same woman. I’ve wanted to divorce her at times. She’s wanted to divorce me at times. But one great thing about marriage, when it’s entered by regular folks, in good faith, is that it’s hard to exit. It costs money. You have to talk to lawyers during business hours except whoops—you have a job that you need to earn money to buy food and pants—so when are you going to both take the time to do that? By the time you’d have gotten around to it, you’ve forgiven each other and maybe even reached a new appreciation for each other as you worked through whatever seemingly insurmountable problem made you hate each other for 20 minutes while you sat in your shitty car outside a CVS yelling at each other and crying.”

Pretty sure this is from my open letter to Kim Kardashian about suing her for divorcing that basketball player she married for 20 minutes. Just reposting since my wife and I have now been married for eight years and have two kids. That’s nice.

The Power Of Poop: A Whale Story
"It begins with this obvious observation: Whales poop. In fact, they poop mightily."
Over at NPR, Robert Krulwich has an amazing story about people who study whale poop, and what it teaches us about food webs, trophic levels, fecal recycling, and whales pooping themselves into existence.
Bonus: Want another ecological whale tale? Check out the amazing animated tale of what happens to a whale after it dies. Whale Fall: An ecosystem born in death.
(via Krulwich Wonders…)


I tell my students this story all the time!Tl;dr: you can literally get a job doing whatever you want, even if that job is studying whale poop.
