Cerebellum and ocular system in the human
In vertebrates, the eyeballs are direct extensions of the brain; that is, they evolved after the brain, and are literally unimpeded access to the cerebellum and cerebrum. Because of this, many ocular tumors or injuries can be far more dangerous to the brain than growths or injuries on any other part of the skull.

    The spotted handfish (Brachionichthys hirsutus), an amazing creature that walks the ocean floor, is a rare Australian fish from the family Brachionichthyidae. It is classified as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List 2002. is the first Australian marine species to be threatened with extinction.

    The greatest threats to the handfish appear to be siltation and invasive species. The Derwent Estuary where the fish lives is highly urbanised and industrialised, and a range of marine pests have been introduced through shipping.  One key pest is the Northern Pacific Seastar (Asterias amurensis), a particularly large and voracious predator that is now abundant in the estuary. Studies by CSIRO show that the seastars eat the stalked ascidians that the handfish use to attach their eggs.

    Like I always say, a fish with a hand is better than two in the bush

My fucking life

*cries softly*

I was jealous of all who are going. Then I saw a picture of just how many people are actually there….nope to many people. :/

:(

Even more sad because a couple months ago I thought I was going to be there. Oh well. I would have been super stressed trying to prepare for SDCC while also moving to a new apartment, so it’s probably for the best.
Can’t wait to see the EAH stuff that gets revealed though!
