Bird Biologists Meet In Banská Bystrica
Fortunately, M.L.'s scientific curiosity led him to seek an answer to this question rather than merely pose it as some sort of Trivial Pursuit card. While I already knew that chickens mate cloaca to cloaca (ugh), Pharyngula provides more information and more entertainingly than I had believed possible. The diagrams alone are priceless.
Meanwhile, Jesse has reminded me several times to note that anyone who enjoyed reading my account of the Mexican fusion restaurant will want to read M.L.'s discussion of Mexican and other food in Prešov. There is a second part of this Prešov restaurant roundup as well, in which M.L. commits the heresy of comparing Kofola to battery acid. What can I say, I don't drink much Kofola, but it is considerably better than Coke or Pepsi. I like the hint of anise but am not wild about the chemical aftertaste.
