Astrogirl, okay, I'm going to need some time to process all of that. But seriously, thank you so much for all of this. I'm going to have about ten trillion more questions for you. Also, I sent your fungus question on to a plant population geneticist friend of mine, as I'm useless when it comes to anything remotely botanical.
And Greenie, once my fantasy team starting sucking, I had to find *something* to occupy myself.
Edit: "Starting sucking"? What am I, new? STARTED sucking. And suck it does. Just like, um, a black hole. Or something.
