One of my favourite things to do on TFF is to linger around on FOTM, watching the entries and winners come forth, and the same with FOTY. Outside FOTM boards, the only reference are the badges winners get for them. Sometimes I try to see what golden find got them the win out of curiosity, yet to no avail do to the sheer amount of winners over the years. To make finding these treasures of FOTMs past easier so that more people can appreciate these finds, the badges for FOTM on your profile page should provide a link to their spot in the winner's gallery and/or the thread that declared them winner. Anyone agree?
I came across some interesting articles in the web and just thought I'd share with you. Bizarre sphere fossils could be among world's earliest animals "A series of mysterious spherical fossils found in southern China may be remnants of some of the world's earliest animals. A new study finds that these controversial fossils are not likely to be bacteria orsingle-celled protists; their cells, preserved for more than 600 million years in rock, are too complex and differentiated. Instead, the fossils may be multicellular algae, or even the embryos of ancient animals. "The real value of these fossils is that we now have some direct evidence about how this transition from single-celled organisms to things like animals and plants occurred in the evolutionary past," said study researcher Shuhai Xiao, a geobiologist at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg."
