    Factoid from the book Gardenlust by Christopher Woods: “We share 98% of our DNA with chimpanzees and 60% of it with bananas.” Can’t get away from the fact that we are all part of the same picture. . .gorgeous pictures of gorgeous gardens and plants, BTW.

    I always considered this to be a dumb interview question. My response is, “Where will the company be in 5 years?”

    It’s like asking a football coach what play he expects to run 5 downs from now. It depends on where we are on the field, down and distance, the score and the time remaining on the clock.

    The amoebae have highly evolved math skills compared to most multicellular beings, some beyond humans.

    Consider: They multiply by dividing.

    Where do you see yourself in five years? That’s when you know the person interviewing doesn’t know how to interview.

    Evolution is a mystery

    Full of change that no one sees

    Clock makes a fool of history

    Yesterday’s too long ago

    Dont agree with what I know

    Tomorrow is the place to be

    I see the line in the sand

    Time to find out who I am

    Looking back to see where I stand

    Evolution

    Evolution

    A 10 percent increase in brightness every billion years means that 3.5 billion years from today, the Sun will shine almost 40 percent brighter, which will boil Earth’s oceans, melt its ice caps, and strip all of the moisture from its atmosphere.

    Our planet, once bursting with life, will become unbearably hot, dry, and barren – like Venus.

    One day, about 4 or 5 billion years from now, the Sun will burn through its last gasp of hydrogen and start burning helium instead.

    It will then spend about a billion years expanding and burning helium in its core, with a shell around it where hydrogen is still able to fuse into helium.

    As the Sun sheds its outer layers, its mass will decrease, loosening its gravitational hold on all of the planets. So all of the planets orbiting the Sun will drift a little further away.

    Its atmosphere will stretch out to Mars’ current orbit, swallowing Mercury and Venus.

    Although the Sun’s atmosphere will reach Mars’ orbit, Mars will escape, as it will have wandered past the reach of the Sun’s expanding atmosphere.

    Earth, on the other hand, has two options: either escape the expanding Sun or be consumed by it. But even if our planet slips out of the Sun’s reach, the intense temperatures will burn it to a sad, dead crisp.
