...that folkloric romance stories (Romeo and Juliet, Kerem ile Aslı etc.) are plot and formula wise compeletely identical to a cringy romance story on Wattpad that is written by a hormonal 16-year-old-girl.

I'll be laughing my butt off when some bookworm or an old writer compliments those stories because they are 'old and we should respect anything old, no matter what'.

TIL that Social Aculeate Hymenoptera,Notably Bees and Ants, evolved from parasitic ancestors which is why their larvae are pretty helpless in their modern form as their bodies were adapted to development inside a host.

...that making meteorological forecasting in Jupiter is easier compared to Earth, as Earth has the most varied atmospheric conditions than any other planet in the sloar system.

The organism responsible for causing tapioca disease in salmonids, Henneguya salminicola, is the first animal (10 cells, related (distantly) to jellyfish) to be confirmed as entirely anoxic. It has no mitochondrial DNA, and no proteins for respiration, and appears to steal ATP from the muscle cells nearby.

Imagine being so lazy that you don't even have mechanisms to burn glucose into energy.

Alston's singing mouse. Males will sing to each other over territory and sernade females. Researchers noted how the mice rarely of never interupted each other, and would almost immediately pick up after the other stopped. About half a second, a little over double the time it takes for a human to respond to another, while most primates can take five seconds or more.

Turns out, theses mice use the same brain structure that we do, when having a conversation. When they chilled this portion of the brain, the mice took longer to respond and sing, and similar effect that happens when the structure is damaged in humans.

Effectively, this mouse is capable of having (at least) rudimentary conversations with each other.
