“As long as I have thought or written at all on politics, I have been in favour of woman suffrage. None of the arguments for or against have any weight with me, except the broad one, which may be thus stated:— ‘All the human inhabitants of any one country should have equal rights and liberties before the law; women are human beings; therefore they should have votes as well as men.’ It matters not to me whether ten millions or only ten claim it—the right and the liberty should exist, even if they do not use it. The term ‘Liberal’ does not apply to those who refuse this natural and indefensible right. Fiat justitia, ruat coelum.”

Alfred Russel Wallace (1909)

What a cool woman!

Beatrix Potter

She was not only an author and illustrator, but also a conservationist and mycologist (studier of fungi). 

Here is a picture of the Beatrix Potter’s farm and below one of her fungi illustrations.

My hands

haven’t been this covered in glue since the last poster I had to make in 8th grade. Who knew that college would require such finely tuned skills?

A poster on the American Lobster, how intriguing!? Also, I just noticed that I forgot to put the common name on the heading. Well shit!
