Long ago, I gave up my high school dreams of becoming the next Carl Sagan and instead wound up working (in order) at a video rental store, a used bookstore, a computer seller, Kinko's, a Jewish newspaper company, and an HR firm. I eventually became a teacher of intercultural communication in Kyoto, where I vainly attempt to apply quantum mechanics to language teaching, practice martial arts and Zen Buddhism, and always keep one eye on the sky. ...more

Squids…In…Space….!

OK, yeah, squid doesn’t have a plural, but come on, can’t you just hear “Miss Squiddy”? 🦑 (Reference lost on younger viewers.)

The 128 baby bobtail squid will be used as part of research into the effects of spaceflight on beneficial interactions between microbes and animals.

M. Thomas’s Recent Updates

Fleet Walker's Divided Heart by David W. Zang

Clear rating
M. Thomas Apple is on page 40 of 169 of Fleet Walker's Divided Heart: “...the national pastime that had grown from rural roots...”

No, it hadn’t. Baseball was born in an urban context. This book was written in 1995 when Baby Boomers were glorifying their childhood memories, so perhaps it can be forgiven this mistake, but when books like this are still in print they only perpetuate the nostalgic error.
