Slime mold and human society

I joined the collective to find people, researchers who would be interested in observing a real-life social 'experiment' happening in Belarus right now. In short, Belarusians are now behaving a lot like slime mold. Thousands and thousands of people…See More

"I have some slime mold I collected in the forest and put in a closed terrarium. I left it in my basket a bit too long and it looks a bit dehydrated and sad. What can I do to revive the little weirdo?"
