Science - from the Beginning

There aren't enough spindles in science textbooks these days.

The Polar Bear looks merry. The squirrel looks positively satanic.

C.S. Macdonald can even draw sad goldfish.

Kitchen Sink Science 101.

What does a dog eat that was never alive? Answers on a 60p e-postcard to the usual address. I'm away to Belgium to loiter in Flemish charity shops. Tot ziens!
