Mollusks Who Take Advantage of Others and the Scientist Who Study Them

An upcoming meeting was brought to my attention.  Let’s just say the subject made me squeal a bit.  I’m as giddy as school kid with a new Aquaman lunchbox.  Molluscs! Symbioses! Vents!  It may be way more awesomeness that one meeting deserves.  You scientist types should definitely attend this one because the only thing that would make it more awesome would be if they had spelled Molluscs with a K.

    I will have to buy some of those half-moon spectacles so I can peer over them at you.
