"In a world where finding a mate is no small feat, some
Anglerfishes have evolved an extraordinary strategy. The tiny male
angler searches for a female by smell, then bites into her and
becomes permanently attached. Eventually his mouth fuses to her
body, his gut degenerates, his blood vessels merge with hers and he
becomes little more than an attached sperm sac available at any
time to fertilize her eggs. In some species females have several
males embedded in their bodies."
You want commitment, ladies? Are you sure??
Amphibious intellectual: (noun) A person who loves self-enrichment,
learning about the world, and pursuing truth, but who can also fit
easily in a sportsbar or other less intellectual crowds. Or maybe
just a smart fucking frog.
I grew up fiercely rejecting my family's hyperintellectual
tendencies, instead throwing myself into sports and comedy in order
to define myself separately from them. However, the older I get the
more I find that I was also largely rejecting a significant part of
my own true identity. When I was a child, my mother did not like
the idea of me being left-handed and would pay me a dime every time
I wrote the alphabet with my right. Although naturally it didn't
work, growing up with not just a mother but a world that catered to
right-handers made me ambidextrous in a number of different ways.
Nature made me left-handed but I was nurtured to be right. This
same idea made me an amphibious intellectual. These days I'm likely
to watch a baseball game (go Phillies!) and then an episode of
Jeopardy. Or perhaps to hear some classical music followed by a
trip to a bar to joke with friends. My most intellectual friends
don't get the sports and the joking; my blue-collar friends don't
understand NPR or Jeopardy. I'm looking for someone else like me
who gets both and could hang out with either group. Can anyone out

love the shit out of Louie. Absolutely brilliant. And okay, I watch

on the list.
