Entomology B/C

Post by Jim_R » August 4th, 2013, 3:15 pm

-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

And everyone cheered because that looks so much better than Forestry! Although, it looks like they didn't proofread that document. Read the first paragraph. :| That or they did that for emphasis...

With forestry, we would give the genus and species on the answer sheet. For entomology, do we only need to put the order/family?

I'm guessing that they're going to ask for it specifically in the question - that is, which one, or both. Most likely both if they're asking for family, though.

It looks like the order Coleoptera is the Passeriformes of entomolgy! ;)
If you did ornithology you know what I mean.

This is to say that it has a lot of families, no? I didn't do Ornithology, but I definitely know what Passeriformes are. :lol:
Beetles are definitely going to suck, though.

Yup, I agree. As J.B.S Haldane said,
“If one could conclude as to the nature of the Creator from a study of creation it would appear that God has an inordinate fondness for stars and beetles.”
