Dude, what kind of fucken boring crappe is this?????
You need to get outside once in awhile. It'll take your mind off rightwing wackaloonery.
Dude, I go outside all the time. And while I'm out there, I rant and rave about right-wing wackaloonery. But I don't look under fucken rocks for slimy nasty shitte.
Cool fish, but what killed off all the starfish?
Fuck it, I'd still eat it.
Only the bright one was dying, Isabel. Standard tidal action on the pink ones, they survive there just fine.
Whitey killed the starfish! That's who!
No, Physioprof, I blame the Jews;).
Seriously, that is interesting, Bikemonkey, as I have never seen them spread out on the beach at low tide. Usually they are in tide pools or other protected areas.
The shore in the pictures is teeming with life, that's for sure. The bryozoans under the rock (if that's what they are) are cool also.
the orange things under the rock are the midshipman's eggs.
Eggs?? Now you are definitely pulling my leg.
Straight up, Isabel. Eggs.
Aww, he's protecting them. Awesome!
