Hello and a special welcome to the Stuff You Should Know fans
for people who haven't heard it, they did a great podcast on slimes - https://tunein.com/podcasts/Science-Podcasts/Stuff-You-Should-Know-...
I said a while ago that we should have another online meet - then I vanished.
It was finals fortnight at work - which gets stupid busy at the best of times and my slime activities have been limited to rearing huge amounts of Daywalker for an exhibition
The students have now gone, I've waved a tearful goodbye to my own student and a big box of slimes, things are back to 'normal'.
So anyone up for a meet? I can put a doodle poll together
Flour beetles! We have them in the lab too.. Physarum can double in around 10 hours once it's got going. In the 'wild' - terrarium or in a sparsley fed dish they'll frequently split - and join up again but kept fed I routinely bulk them up to 1/4 Square meter and did a full square meter once.
I've been wondering about a slime tattoo...
