SFP: Episode 349: Don’t Forget the Poison Vial

This episode contains: We start off talking about Mother’s Day and moving to Texas. Just wait, it gets better.

Evolution, What Are You Gonna do?: There’s no such thing as a #tree (phylogenetically). We talk dendronization, poaization, and how avocado and cinnamon are pretty closely-realted species. It’s neat.

It’s Hip to be Square: Scientists have studied the mysterious behavior of cats sitting on squares. A Kanizsa illusion was used to see how cats see squares. Also neat.
