    A researcher in Australia is looking at the response of some of our birds to climate change, particularly related to temperature and rainfall. She has found evidence for changes in body and bill size, check out her publications if you're interested! https://janetlgardner.wordpress.com/publications/

    We cant base future events on the past, but we can look back at evolution and guess whats going to happen in the future. 
    WHAT?

    I cant say I now the food source of porpoises exactly, but I thought they ate pretty much the same food. So, killing them would eliminate competition. This does not explain what drives them in a proximal sense but ultimately they are thinning competition for food.

    So I absolutely love this show and I love how Sally Le Page is participating with Rooster Teeth, but if we get a weekly show with her answering "stupid" questions, does that mean we'll lose the annual podcast were she is a featured guest?

    I live on a farm (but originally a city boy) and I have watched my two cats hunt down and catch mice, trot them in their mouths across the yard and drop them, just to start the chase again.

    I suspect the behaviour is like a child with a toy, but in the sense of practicing the skills the cats need to survive. Even though they have a dish full of food, and don't really need to hunt to survive, it is a method of learning and honing skills they know they need, as a child learns skills in the form of play.

    is anyone bothered that they're using the "evolution" image on the logo? Especially since Sally's an evolutionary biologist, who has pointed out the inaccuracies in drawing evolution like that before. I wonder why they decided to use it in the logo and why Sally hasn't complained yet.

      She has another platform that she can use to get people interested in science, if the logo being a highly recognizable (but inaccurate) piece of science iconography is a part of the deal then isn't that worth it?

    • jjpooo FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      @Wallaby1010101 sure, but there are plenty of other icons to choose from that are far more accurate than the ascent man. I mean you could use a drawing of a test tube or beaker and people would still get that this is a science show. science itself strives to be as accurate as possible, and I guess it just bugs me sometimes when people continue to reinforce wrong and outdated ideas just because it looks nice.

    On the topic of cats couldn't the argument also be raised that cats were domesticated more as a means of pest control such as killing rats on ships and mice on farms rather than as companions that's why they seem to just kill things and leave them because that's the purpose they were initially domesticated for.

    Jesus Christ, these ad reads at the top are killing me. I mind them less in The Know's stuff, because they have pretaped stuff, then intro screen, then useful content. It's less obtrusive. Also, Gus's segues, while almost kind of an inside joke on the podcast, just feel shitty when they transition in from nothing. My two cents, take it for what you will

      No offense, I just reeeealy wanted to use the "flamebait" mod since I saw it on the list. This was the closest anyone's come to a good reason to use it so far.

      @NermalTheHun It's a valid dissenting opinion, relevant to the video and supported by his reasoning. Why do you think it deserves to be called flamebait?

      Because ad reads subsidise your membership, making it much cheaper than it would be otherwise - and if you really can't stand them, all you need to do is press the right arrow on your keyboard 3-4 times and they magically disappear.

    Did you realise that PH scale is actually just a logarithmic measure of the molarity of the H+(I believe its H+, it may be OH-), they are in all essential ways interchangeable, like any other two units that mean the same things, litres and pints for example.

      What the? A pint is absolutely not the same as a litre - they are entirely different units of volume. A pint is half a quart, or an eighth of a gallon. A litre is slightly bigger than a quart, or slightly smaller than an imperial quart.
