Nature Geek Porn

Lately I was discussing with a colleague about an invasive slug. My friend is an incredible naturalist but this day he had trouble remembering the slug’s name, so we had to try several sets of key words request before getting to the critter. Then, we had a comment as to how some species get weird names. And there was slug porn germinating in our heads. Good I thought, let’s keep it for the day I’d like to silly blog.

Since I don’t have much time to blog currently, this turns out to be the time it gets here. Fortunately, there isn’t much traffic to begins with, and porn can help boosting it a bit, while hopefully there will be more posting here when readers return.

So the question is, what would nature geek porn look like? In my informed opinion, it’ll be like this:

sttprn2

If you wonder why, it’s not just because. One of the synonyms for the slug illustrated here is Vaginulus floridanus. The flower is Clitoria ternatea. And you know what? Besides rocketting traffic in here, and despite a pure nature geekery, it is still very suggestive and hopefully some good porn… :-)

And it’s also safe for office.

These were the most read accessed posts at Seeds Aside in 2013:

Of course, these are mostly older posts. I should go back to older days writing style. I should…

The worste recorded was this one:

Title not so say! :)

Request were mostly single words, probably something that changed in search behaviour in recent years (too bad, it was funnier when people typed questions directly and resulting direction was mismatching…):

- roucou, mosses plants, drip tip leaves, achiote, contrepèterie en anglais, miltomate, male orchid, contrepetrie in english, meiosis, meiose…

#MyGenderGap filters out

Yes, I know I was five days away from the initial buzz, but considering how slow stream Seeds Aside is, that’s not too bad. (This is perhaps the first time in its history that SA is taking a ride at all :)

A few blogs have analysed the extant of the gap:

The stream is mostly in tweets, you can still reach them to get an idea… even if untweeting. Or even better, just here.
