Ok, sane people seem to be too intimidated, or perhaps actually in posession of lives and stuff, and thus deprived of any yearning to go on a nightlong Google/journal hunt adventure. As a matter of fact, I suppose not everyone voluntarily leeches off the high speed VPN-free journal access at a lab computer at interesting hours of the night. Some might even go all the way home and resort to slow pdf-loading ordeals. Or maybe even skip the whole academic article thing altogether. Especially on a Friday night. So I'll just go back to doing super hard ones, and perhaps occasionally space them out with something publicly-accessible. But don't count on it. =P Actually, this way I get an excuse to learn about some REALLY obscure stuff. Some stuff so obscure it finds some protistology faculty clueless. Mwahaha. Stuff I should totally dump on my CV/Resume - to bewilder potential future employers with the sheer uselessness of my knowledge! ^_^

Winner gets to feel good about themselves. I don't think this one is particularly beer-worthy.

Phylodeities and clade spirits now happily accepting beer sacrifices.
