OK OK I'll Do It

NaBloPoMo is here. Posting on one's blog every day for the month of November. My sister, one Molly Mormon Democrat, is doing it and so I can't let her one-up me.

Here's my first random post of the month: another reason to love the internet. Meet the bone-eating snot-flower worm. Yep, it's a real creature. However, don't let the name fool you: it's a slightly incorrect translation of its Latin name. As Wiktionary explains: "A slight misunderstanding of the scientific name Osedax mucofloris, which actually means "snot-flower bone-eater", with mucofloris modifying Osedax rather than the other way around."

Happy NaBloPoMo, everybody!
