Speak Your Mind: Appreciate the Unappreciated
A few weeks ago at my other blogging gig I opined about the glory of slime molds. They are fantastic! Not only are slime molds beautiful, but scientists are discovering new, amazing things they can do. (Farming and solving mazes, for example.) But just because of their common moniker, the simple mention of slime molds makes people recoil in disgust. Slime molds aren’t as cuddly as sloths or kitties, that’s true. They are popularly underappreciated. I, however, think they are wonderful.
Even though I’m totally on team slime molds, I have to admit that there is an entire planet of unbelievable forms of life. So many, in fact, that I’m throwing it out to you to convince me that slime molds are second best.
In your opinion, what is the most underappreciated thing on Earth? Why?
