I'm from the Gardening & landscaping beta. I ask more questions than I answer here, and enjoy learning about and , as well as other things. I may answer some questions.

I've liked biology since I was young, and like seeing this site grow. It's my 'baby' site, where I hang out and vote to keep thing up.

Feel free to drop me a note:

comment Questions about insects eating flour and living in the cracks of a wooden cutting boards
Buy a new cutting board. :P (plastic ones would solve all your problems). We can't ID a bug without a picture, either.

comment How does Pothos grow in only water?
Pothos needs those nutrients as well, but they are more tolerant of poor nutrition than most plants, therefore rendering them better houseplants (most people don't fertilize their plants properly). But with no nutrients, the plant will begin to fade. A good hydroculture system includes a nutrient solution, to keep the plant fed, and an aerator, to add oxygen to the root zone.

comment TV's so loud when I turn over
I've noticed a similar thing. I think your ear adapts to the sound level it is being hit with, so when you turn over, the ear that was used to hearing absolutely nothing comes up, adapted to find the weakest signals. You can do something similar with your eyes. Cover one for a few minutes, then open it and close the other. The room will seem quite bright. Or, look through a cardboard paper towel tube with one eye for a while. The view through the tube will get much brighter, as that eye is being hit with considerably less light.
