The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

@AgBioWorld
Plants outweigh others on earth. All life on Earth weighs about 550 gigatons. Of that, #plants make up 450 gigatons of carbon (GT C), followed by bacteria at 70 GT C and fungi at 12 GT C

I was going to post that but Pyrrho beat me to it. But here's a link to the original article:

http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018/05/ ... life-earth

Pretty cool stuff. I would have guessed that plants account for most of it, but all animals only account for 0.36% of the mass of life on earth, plants 81.6%.

This is kind of alarming though: "wild mammals" are only 0.007. There's way, way, way more "livestock" than wild mammals or birds (and I don't even see reptiles or amphibians, what's up with that?)

Cnidarians: that means jellyfish, had to look that one up.
Annelids are worms like earthworms and nematodes are roundworms, most of which are parasites.

But it shows that humans and our livestock are much more abundant than large wild land-based animals.

I wondered how come, so found a poorly written but explicit article about Pakistan, if you're interested: https://www.pakistantoday.com.pk/2012/0 ... ink-twice/

Definite correlation with Islam on a world basis, with a regional correlation with Hinduism.

But I expect Europe being fairly low is a recent phenomenon.

Also, I'd like to see it broken down by region within large countries. I'm thinking urban versus rural.

Each edition totally more cosmic than the last.
