Inspecting Considerable Specks.

If my life was the conveyor belt at the chocolate factory where Lucy and Ethel tried their hand at working, then this blog would be where Lucy tried to shove all the escaping chocolate.

Queen Tamar of Georgia. Ruled the Kingdom of Georgia from 1184-1213.

Even though her father left her the throne, a lot of her counselors were wary about having a woman rule, so they picked out a husband for her - Yuri, Prince of the Rus’ (Russia). She complied, but when he started getting drunk and abusing her, she called off the marriage and kicked him out of Georgia. He came back with an army to try and overthrow her, but she and her armies beat them to a pulp and sent them packing. 

A lot of neighboring countries tried to invade, actually, because they thought that a woman leader was a sign of weakness. 

She showed them otherwise. 

She expanded the Kingdom of Georgia to its largest size, created a Golden Era of peace in which the greatest Georgian poetry and art was created, and eventually married her friend and equal, David Soslan, prince of Alan. 

She was incredible, guys.

Certain species of fruit bats have figured out some pretty interesting mating tricks in order to prolong the magic, and … umm … well, one rhymes with “Horatio” and the other sounds like the name for someone who is clever with words.

By putting their money where their mouth is, both males and females prolong the mating experience (which can increase the odds of fertilization) and they prevent their competition from getting a chance with the same mate. They may even be getting a taste of how compatible they are with their mate, literally. Think of it as making an oral argument in order to increase your odds of reproduction and carrying your genes to the next generation.

At any rate, understanding the various mating behaviors of the world’s animals provide key insights to evolution. Bats, who make up a quarter of all mammal species, are crucial to that understanding. We knew they were creatures of the night, but this takes it to another level, eh?

I’ll just let you guys take the conversation from here, because I’m a gentleman. Read Ed Yong’s full coverage for more.  And of course …
