Alien Brains

If we were to one day encounter intelligent alien life, could we communicate with them effectively? To answer that question, we need to take a look at how we are communicating with the alien lifeforms here on Earth.

No, you didn't miss seeing the arrival of aliens from outer space. These creatures have been here all along. We are talking, of course, about intelligent sea creatures such as dolphins and octopus.

Direct from Animals io9 comes a very interesting article by Jason G. Goldman, The Alien Brains Living on Planet Earth.

"Scientists have a hard enough time getting into the minds of our nearest relatives, the apes and monkeys, let alone more distantly related mammals like dolphins or elephants. Octopuses? Forget about it."

Mr. Goldman's article is well worth a read. Be sure to also scan the other Animal articles in the left margin. For example, 'Tiny Angry Seahorses Growl When Grabbed'.

Mermaids looking for a cool hairstyle for the summer months may want to visit Melissa Cook's blog, 'Missy Sue'.

Melissa has posted step by step instructions on how to create one of her recent creations, the Half Up Mermaid Braid. The article is complete with photographs taken at every angle.

"Half Up Mermaid Braid is a front lace braid that finishes in a mermaid style half up braid."

Keep cool, and if you try out Melissa's braid, be sure to send me a photo!
