This afternoon, while researching the next chapter for my Darwin book, I found myself reading the following sentence several times in a scientific paper:

Tetraploids can result from autopolyploidization of diploids, or crosses between hexaploids and diploids.

…and I thought to myself, there has to be an easier way to find stuff to entertain my readers.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
Mark Cocker, author and naturalist
