I wanted to call this entry “God don’t make Junque” but I felt the reference might be too obscure. Still, I feel compelled to tell you that the late 1970s often return to me in a blur of tote bag inscriptions: Le Bag. Le Junk. Le Junque. (This was also the era of Le Car). Sometimes I crave the simple, homely popular humor of that era, but mostly I remember how stupid it all was.

(Strenuous transition to shark-related subjects)

The white shark, however, is not stupid.

After watching the great white dissection movie, I wanted to know more about the shark brain and foundĀ this fascinating article on white shark intelligence.


P.S. This isn’t related, but it is FABULOUS…..
