Quotes

For the rest of our day's snorkelling we take breaks on the surface where Mere gives me frying-pan ratings on the species we see. "Did you see that school behind the coral over there? Delicious."
"It's excitement, but you also have some folks that have been in the Coast Guard a long time" he said. "It's sad to see a cutter decommissioned."
"As far as within-group interactions are concerned, the alpha males and females are 'bad guys' taking various resources from their group-mates. However, in between-group conflicts they become 'good guys' and their presence and effort benefit everybody else" said Sergey Gavrilets, NIMBioS' associate director for scientific activities and the study's lead author
...You are not tied to a 40-hour week. I can go down to the valley with my knife and cut bananas or go fishing whenever I want." But, he admitted, "I never thought I would live here as long as I have. You know, I like that world out there in many ways."
