Fig wasps and Penn and Teller on the Catholic Church.

Watched a couple of interesting videos today. Watched this one about fig wasps on PBS. I’d read about them in “Climbinb Mount Improbable,” one of the better books by Richard Dawkins, and the video does a better job of conveying the weirdness of it all, but a poorer job of explaining how it got so weird in the first place.
This isn’t the whole video, but gives a taste.

Very interesting video, though I wish it had explained more about the evolution of all that weirdness.

The other show I watched was an episode of Penn and Teller’s Bullshit. It was about the Vatican. Worth watching. Head on over to Pharyngula and have a look see.
