Sunday Links

This is the “I’m actually writing this on Friday because on Sunday I’ll be lounging in the hot springs of Big Sur” edition of Sunday Links. Happy weekend!

  • British Natural History Museum researchers Martine Couapel and Jeremy Young are cruising the Atlantic Ocean north to south in search of coccolithophores, the tiny phytoplankton whose shells make chalk. Coccolithophores are thought to be especially sensitive to changes in ocean acidity (a side effect of climate change), so Couapel and Young are trying to figure out where they are and what they’re doing before any REALLY drastic climatic changes occur.

    I had a friend who did this very thing. I think it makes a lot of sense. I know a lot of ppeloe want to have the big formal reception but really it’s about being with friends and family and having a good time, not about being in a fancy place. Plus, most ppeloe don’t even like the dry chicken or bad prime rib they serve at wedding dinners anyway. Why go into a ton of debt for one little party, why not have a fun backyard party and save the money for your house or something. You could just do ordereves and set them out on tables. If you wanted to have food you could even have it catered through a local restaurant or even a browns chicken or something like that, it would still be much cheaper than at a reception hall. As for alcohol get a few kegs, a few buckets of different bottled beers, and a bunch of bottles of hard liquor and set them all out on a table. If you wanted a bartender I’m sure you have a nephew or cousin or something who wouldn’t mind manning the bar and mixing some drinks. Hopefully you have a great time. Definatley go with the tents incase it rains. My friends party was a blast and everyone loved it. If you have any questions about anyting she did shoot me an e-mail and ask.
