- 3:36 pm
- Bugscope Teampumping down
- 4:07 pm
- Bugscope Teamtaking a long time to pump down 'cause of the enormous ant
- Bugscope TeamI'll give it another 40 minutes or so
- Bugscope Teamvac is at 3.5 x 10-4
- Bugscope Teamwaiting for 1.3
- Bugscope Teamnow it's 3.2
- Bugscope Team3.0
- 4:12 pm
- Bugscope Team2.7
- Bugscope Team2.5, seems to be going fairly quickly now
- Bugscope Team1.5, amazing
- 4:22 pm
- 4:28 pm
- Bugscope Teammaking presets
- Bugscope Teamsorry do not see hamuli. yet
- 4:34 pm
- Guestyo scott!
- Bugscope Teamhey DaddyO!
- Bugscope TeamHow is it looking over there?
- Guestwell, it's going okay, but we don't have a 2nd mini-DVI adapter, the one i brought from home doesn't work
- Bugscope Teamoog
- Bugscope TeamHey no sweat I didn't think we were gonna have a 2nd monitor 'til only recently
- Guestare you sure? maybe i can run out and buy a2nd one?
Bugscope Teamthere are none available in the city
- Bugscope Teamif Winogrand has one that would be the best bet
- Bugscope TeamDude I can run up and take a look at the connector.
- Bugscope Teamif you want
- 4:40 pm
- Guestscott, i'm going to come back to beckman now
- Bugscope Teamtotally cool
- Guesti'll get the 2nd mini-dvi apadter, and also pick up a 2nd mouse
- Guestbe there soon. fear doesn't start till 6pm
- Guestso we have time
- 4:45 pm
- 4:53 pm
- Bugscope TeamHello Andrews!
- 4:59 pm
- Guestare all insects made up of atoms?
Bugscope Teamyes they are!
- Bugscope Teamanything you can touch is made of atoms
- Bugscope Teamair and water as well
- Guestwhat do you learn from the bugs?
Bugscope Teamwe learn how they live -- they have to do the same things we do, but they do it differently
- 5:04 pm
- Bugscope Teamthey can make things we cannot, like certain kinds of silk. they make nanoparticles, which is what the brochsomes are in one of the presets
- Bugscope Teamthere are some bacteria and some brochosomes on the compound eye of a wasp
- Bugscope Teambrochosomes are made by leafhoppers
- Bugscope Teamticks can break open and seal themselves up again
- Guestthe bugs look like they have spikey armor
Bugscope Teamexactly! they have an exoskeleton, which is like wearing armor
- Guesthow late is the live session tonight
Bugscope Teamit's going to run 'til 8:30 or so, at least 3.5 more hours
- Guestit looks like its ready for war!
- Bugscope TeamHi Ally!
- Bugscope Teamit is ready for sure
- 5:10 pm
- Bugscope Teamthis is a tick
- Guestyo scott!!!
- Bugscope Teamhow's it going over there?
- Bugscope Team#2 I just gave you control if you want to try driving
- Guestboth as guest, so you'll need to pass control from one to the other
- Guestgood, we have 2 displays up now
- Guestwe've got a cusomter on #1, can you give #1 control
Bugscope Teamgot it!
- Guestwhat is the tick on?
Bugscope TeamAlly it is leaning on a 'log.' Which is actually a piece of a wooden applicator stick.
- Guestscott, can you give control to #1 please?
Bugscope Teamno. 1 has control
- Bugscope Teamis it not working?
- Guestthe tick looks like it is staring at me
Bugscope Teamit was for sure
- 5:15 pm
- Bugscope Teamthese are super tiny insects called hypogastruridae
- Guestwe are good, thanks scott!
Bugscope Teamtotally cool
- Bugscope Teamthey are said not to be insects -- they are hexapods (six legs) but not insects. pretty radical. super small little dudes
- Guestso they live on the ground near leaves?
Bugscope Teamyes if you brush your hand along some leaf litter, you may see them jump -- they are commonly called springtails
- 5:20 pm
- Bugscope Teamthis is the cuticle, which is really beautiful\
- Bugscope Teamthe magnification is so high that the sample is charging up with electrons, sometimes
Bugscope Teamtotally cool. I used to go to Cape Hatteras in the summer.
- Bugscope Teamthis is a pseudoscorpion
- Bugscope Teamyou can see that we broke it when we put it on the stub. very fragile
- Bugscope Teamthese are its mandibles
Bugscope Teamthey're arachnids, related to spiders
- Bugscope TeamAndrews where are you?
- Guestmy teacher told us about this site
- Guestscott, leilei is coming back to get 2 keyboards...
- Bugscope Teamwe have received a lot of publicity lately, and it means it is hard to schedule people because we're booked months in advance
- Guestwe think kids will want to type in questions
Bugscope Teamyou mean that they're just better than laptops?
- Guestgood point, what is leilei's cell?
- 5:25 pm
- Bugscope TeamAndrews and Ally what we are doing this evening is a little different. There's an Insect Fear Film Festival.
- Bugscope Team721 3672
- Guestwe've got some of the presets with ? that don't work, for example the brochosomes preset doesn't work
Bugscope Teamit works for me, looks like
- Bugscope Teamanyway, there is an annual film festival on campus that features B movies about insects -- this year it's ants
- Bugscope Teamthese are bacteria and brochosomes -- the brochs are about 250 to 400 nanometers in diameter
- Guestscott, the hypograstrurid looks awesome! -Aron
Bugscope TeamThanks, Dude!
- Guestcool but no fear fests for second graders. :(
Bugscope Teamoften kids do not go in -- they stay out in the lobby where there is an insect petting zoo, facepainting, t-shirts, etc
- Guestnot fair
- Bugscope TeamAndrews the IFFF is set up for kids.
- 5:30 pm
- Bugscope Teamso we have a crew over there who are running Bugscope from campus, and I'm here in the basement where the scanning electron microscope is.
- Bugscope Teamwe are seeing a lot of charging because it is hard to ground the insects properly, since they're so small
- Bugscope TeamHi Alex!
- Bugscope Teamthose horizontal lines are indicative of charging, in which the electrons are not shed from the sample
- Bugscope TeamAre Joe and Linnea there?
- Bugscope Teamis Jo there? I'm sure she is.
- Bugscope Teamhere you can see both compound eyes and ocelli'
- Guestthe ? problem on some of the presets is fixed, a refresh fie it
Bugscope Teamthat's what I meant to type
- Bugscope Teamthis claw moved a bit
- Guesti can't wait to tell the other kids in my class
Bugscope Teamcall them and ask them to log in
- Bugscope Teamthis is the coolest
- Bugscope Teamthis is the part that holds in your skin. opposite it is the rasper part that cuts into your skin and gets the blood going
Bugscope Teamtotally cool -- that's all you can do!
- 5:35 pm
- Guestmy mom is texting some of them now
- Bugscope Teamusually we connect with individual schools -- tonight is different
- Guestmy sister Ally was on earlier
- Bugscope Teamthere are some other critters on this stub that I have not found yet
- Bugscope TeamI think they weren't going to open 'til 6 p.m. here
- Guestmy class was on this past week
Bugscope Teamso you are an old-timer then!
- Bugscope Teamthe transcript and images from your session should be online
- Bugscope TeamI'm going to the 'scope to get better focus for you!
- Bugscope Teamactually looks pretty good now
- Bugscope Teamdon't see brochs and bacteria together often
- Bugscope Teamthis is on the compound eye of a wasp
- 5:41 pm
- Guestwhat are the functions of brochosomes?
Bugscope Teamthey are thought to help keep leafhoppers' eggs from drying out
Bugscope Teamalso, leafhoppers have an 'anointing' function in which they spread them on their cuticle -- don't know why
- Guestcool! thank you.
- Bugscope Teamwe see brochosomes on lots of critters that are not leafhoppers, but we believe they were in contact with them at some point
- Guestthank you.
Bugscope Teamyou bet, Andrew!
- Bugscope Teamsee the ant's compound eye?
- Bugscope Teamthis is a trapjaw ant, and unfortunately neither of them look very good this evening
- Guesti will do this again another day and bring some other kids from my class
Bugscope TeamAndrew we appreciate seeing you. Tell your mom Thanks too!
- Bugscope Teamyou can see that the trapjaw ant has a large head with big muscles in it
- Bugscope Teamhere we can see an anterior tentorial pit in the wasp's face
- 5:46 pm
- Guestscott, do you know if we have to refresh the wireless connection to IllinoisNET every hour? We just lost wireless on #1 and had to refresh it
Bugscope TeamI assume you do, and I think it is ridiculous if you are actively on the web.
- Bugscope TeamI think this has happened before, and we definitely want to be on IllinoisNet.
- Guestokay, got cha
- Bugscope TeamLike, of all the choices, it's what we want...
- Guestone more thing...
- Bugscope Teamhow are Leilei and Dianwen doing? Have they let families in yet?
- Guestboth laptops are pointing towards the users. and i have a 3rd laptop (my personal one) point back towards us
Bugscope Teamoh cool.
- Guestwe may occassionally ask you to change control from #1 to #2. we would ask that from user ALEX
- Bugscope Teamhey cool
- Bugscope TeamAlex does this mean you can't leave>?
- Bugscope TeamMaximum DubScope here
- Guestyeah, but that's okay
Bugscope Teamif you book out at like 8:30 would that work?
- Guestsure man, i'm okay, i can stay till the end if need be
- 5:51 pm
- Bugscope Teamhow is the resolution looking on the second monitor? can you tell the difference?
- Bugscope Teamthat is a serious stinger
- Bugscope Teamthey've decided that these are not insects -- they're hexapods
- Bugscope Teamobviously they're charging up with electrons as well
- Bugscope TeamAlex tell me what it's like there.
- Bugscope TeamPlease.
- Bugscope Teamthis is the pseudoscorpion
- Guesthi my name is ANDREW FROM MRS. METGERS!
Bugscope TeamHi Andrew!
- Bugscope TeamWow totally cool. Welcome back!
- Bugscope TeamYou can tell Mrs Metger that you got to work with us this weekend.
- 5:56 pm
- Bugscope Teammandibles with filter-like components -- ant combs are like this
- GuestYES I WILL
- GuestWHAT ARE YOU DOING
Bugscope TeamI'm in the lab, and there's a film festival here where we're featuring Bugscope. So I'm the home base.
- Bugscope Teamthese are hamuli -- wing hooks that hold the fore- and hindwings together when the wasp flies.
- GuestTHATS COOL
- Guestscott, can you give control to #2
Bugscope TeamNo. 2 is the Supreme Ruler.
- Bugscope Teamoops where's the antenna on this side?
- Bugscope Teamit's broken off
- Bugscope Teamyou can see the one on the other side
- Bugscope Teamthe ant abdomen is called a 'gaster'
- Bugscope Teamthis is so cool
- Bugscope TeamAndrew do you know what this is?
- Bugscope Teamthe head of a tick is called the 'capitulum'
- 6:01 pm
Bugscope Teamthat was tick!
- Bugscope Teamthis is now the stinger of an ant -- not all ants have stingers
- Bugscope Teamthis is kind of hard to make out -- the wasp is very small and this is its ovipositor
- Bugscope Teamthis is cool
- Bugscope Teamtoo
- Bugscope Teamyou can see the claws, on the outside, and on the inside is the puvillus
- Bugscope Team'pulvillus'
- Guestscott, can you give control to #1
Bugscope Teamgot it, DaddyO
- Bugscope Teamthose are the tarsi -- the last several segments of each limb
- Guestbye my mom will talk to you
Bugscope TeamBye Andrew!
- Guestwhat am i lookin at
Bugscope Teamyou're up close on the limbs of a wasp
- Bugscope Teamnow you can see one of the claws
- Guestscott, control to #2 please
- 6:07 pm
- GuestHello, Is this a claw?
Bugscope Teamyes it is, to the left a bit
- Bugscope Teamit's a wasp's claw, one of six
- Bugscope Teamin the center of the claw you can see two setae (hairs) that help the wasp sense if it is actually grasping something
- Bugscope Teamthe pad to the lower left is called a pulvillus, and it has sticky setae on it that help the wasp stick to surfaces
- Guestbye i halft to leave.
Bugscope TeamThank You!
- Bugscope Teamnow we're looking at an ant with a very sharp stinger
- Bugscope Teamthe stinger is coming out of the gaster -- the ant abdomen
- Bugscope Teamthis is my favorite thing this evening
- Bugscope Teamthe palps are on the sides, and they fold down when the tick 'bites'
- Bugscope Teamin the center, bottom, is the part that holds the tick head into your skin
- Bugscope Teamthose are kind of like tastebuds on the palp\
- Bugscope Teamthe're chemoreceptors
- Bugscope Team'they're,' that is
- Guestor was?
- 6:12 pm
- Guestscott, is this a mandble?
Bugscope Teamthis is one of the palps
- Bugscope Teamthe head of the tick is called a capitulum, and in between these two palps is the part called the hypostome that sticks into your skin
- Bugscope Teamthe palps fold down out of the way
- Bugscope Teamthis is a super 'hairy' ant antenna
- Bugscope Teamants get most of their information via the antennae
- Bugscope Teamsome ants don't even bother to have eyes
- Bugscope Teamhere you can see the wasp's head, and its compound eyes as well as two of the ocelli -- the simple eyes on the top of the head
- Bugscope Teamthe head is upside down
- Bugscope Teamso the ocelli are down and to the left now where you cannot see them
- Bugscope Teamcompound eye, with lots of facets called ommatidia
- Guesthow many eye parts does a wasp have
Bugscope Teamit has two compound eyes with (this one looks like it has about 200 ommatidia) three ocelli
- Bugscope Teamsome large wasps can have 17,000 ommatidia per compound eye
- 6:17 pm
- Bugscope Teamsee the mandibles? they fold in from the sides like a gate
- Bugscope Teamthere's the hinge portion of the mandible\
- Bugscope Teambacteria, and the tiny round things are brochosomes
- Bugscope Teamthe mounds we see are ommatidia
- Bugscope Teamthe two mounds
- Guestscott, please give control to #1
Bugscope Teamgot it!
- Bugscope Teamthe brochs are between 250 and 400 nm in diameter, usually
- 6:22 pm
- Bugscope Teamthey look like buckeyballs
- Bugscope Teamnanoparticles
- Bugscope Teambaby ticks have only six limbs
- Bugscope Teamthis is an adult
- Bugscope Teamticks can reseal their cuticle if it gets broken open
- Bugscope Teamthey are dirty little critters, and they almost always have bacteria on the outside of their bodies
- Guestwhy do bees die when they sting
Bugscope Teamthey die when they sting mammals but not other insects, and it's because the stinger gets torn off, leaving a hole in the body
- Bugscope Teamthe barbs on the stinger don't easily come out of mammalian skin
- Bugscope Teamit's not all bees, and it's not wasps, which can sting repeatedly
- Bugscope Teamantennae busted off here
- Bugscope Teamantenna, that is
- 6:27 pm
- Bugscope Teamthere is some kind of juju on the compound eye -- some dried fluid
- Bugscope Team10 microns is about 5 bacteria long
- Guestscott, #2 contr\ol [lease
Bugscope Team#2 is the supreme ruler
- Bugscope Teamthis is one of the pseudoscorpion claws
- Guesthaving big probems with the wireless disconnecting
Bugscope TeamI'm sorry. It is really just silly. It must happen to students all of the time.
- Bugscope Teamit's a University, and this is the 21st Century.
- 6:32 pm
- Guestokay, the trick is you have to click on renew now when renewing the wireless session, i think i got it now
- Bugscope Teamsweet, DaddyO
- Guestno, it's not working again
- Guestcontrol to 1 please
- GuestNo 1 wants control
Bugscope Teamgot it!
- Bugscope TeamAlex we can figure out what the best way to do this will be for next year, including dealing with wireless dropping out.
- Guestokay scott
- Guestokay, reconnected
Bugscope Teamokay #2 has control now
- Bugscope Teamlet me know who wants control...
- Guestnumber 1!
Bugscope Teamhaha ok got it
- 6:38 pm
- Bugscope Teamthis is some kind of dried fluid on the ommatidia -- the eye facets
- Guesti think this one is working again
Bugscope Teamlooks like it
- Bugscope Teamhigh mag
- Bugscope Teamthese are so small we couldn't put silver paint under them to ground them better
- Bugscope Teamso you can see that they're charging up with electrons
- Bugscope Teamthat's what the horizontal lines are
- Bugscope Teamthese are hexapods -- they're six legged but not insects
- Bugscope Teamyou can see they have tiny single eyes -- stemmata -- like caterpillars
- Bugscope Teamonly on the one on the right
- Bugscope Teammouthparts
- Bugscope Teamthis is the mouth now
- Bugscope Teamnice job focussing
- Bugscope Teamthey have the most beautiful cuticle
- 6:43 pm
- Bugscope Teamyou can actually see some brochosomes there as well
- Bugscope TeamI'm sitting at the 'scope now, which is how I take over occasionally
- Bugscope Teamsweet
- Bugscope Teambe right back!
- Guestis this really live chat to a 'scope operator?
- Bugscope Teamyes it is!
- Bugscope TeamI'm at the 'scope now.
- 6:48 pm
- Bugscope Teamso, for one thing, I can tweak the focus for you, make it easier
- Bugscope TeamI'm on three computers here in the Microscopy Suite. This is the ESEM computer...
- Guestcould you tweak the focus to help focus on those scale-looking things?
- GuestThe scales are a bit to right of the hair-follicle looking thing.
Bugscope Teamto the right of the seta...
- Bugscope Teamlooks like dried fluid, some salts
- Bugscope Teamoh that is the cuticle, to the right
- Bugscope Teamwhere it looks like shingles, kind of
- Bugscope Teamtiny particles, too small to be bacteria, not brochosomes
- 6:53 pm
- Guestwhat is a brochosome (besides being something those particles are not)>
Bugscope Teambrochosomes are tiny things that look like whiffle balls, or buckey balls
- Bugscope Teamthey are produced by leafhoppers but get on other insects as well
- Bugscope Teamthey are thought to be used to help keep eggs from drying out
- Bugscope Teamthere are some in one of the presets
- Bugscope Teamthey are nanoparticles, produced in the Malpighian tubules
- Bugscope Team250 to 400 nm in diameter, usually
- Bugscope Teamthis is the ball and socket joint of the antenna that's been busted off
- Bugscope Teamthe tiny setae help the ant sense when the ball is moving in the socket
- Bugscope Teamthe ovipositor has at least three components that probably work side by side to cut into the prey's cuticle
- 6:59 pm
- Bugscope Teamthe same way a mosquito's fascicle has little cutting stylets
- Bugscope Teamhaha
- Bugscope Teamnow you can see where you were
- Bugscope Teamantennae very low on the head
- Bugscope Teamyou can see where we looked earlier and left a TV shaped mark
- Bugscope Teamthere's some dried fluid on the ommatidia
- Bugscope Teamso they don't look so good
- 7:04 pm
- Bugscope Teamare you trying to go back to the ant or is the control not going where you ask it to go?
- GuestwhT IA THE
- Bugscope Teamit's a tick!
- GuestWHAT IS THE OPENING TO THE RIGHT OF THE ANT'S EYE?
Bugscope Teamthat was where the antenna had broken off
- GuestA PARasite?????
Bugscope Teamnow or on the ant?
- Gueston the ant
Bugscope Team in the center now is the broken off antenna
- Bugscope Teamnow you're on a wasp
- 7:09 pm
- Bugscope Teamyou can see that the head is a bit mashed, at lower mag
- Bugscope Teamyou can click on the viewing screen with the mouse to center the image where you want it
- Bugscope Teamhexapods
- 7:14 pm
- Bugscope Teamtick!
- Bugscope Teamthe stuff there is from its last host
- Bugscope Teamthis is an odd ant, with mandibles tucked under its head
- Bugscope Teamserious jaws
- 7:19 pm
- Guestwhat ant is this?
Bugscope TeamI'm sorry I don't know what kind it is. I think it is local.
- Bugscope Teamtrapjaw ant
- Bugscope Teamhere
- 7:24 pm
- Bugscope Teamthis is a purple beetle
- 7:29 pm
- Bugscope Teamthe pore in the face is an anterior tentorial pit
- Guestwhy do wasp heads have holes in them?
Bugscope Teamit is part of the exoskeleton that extends inside the head to support it
- 7:35 pm
- Guesthow big is the biggest bee
Bugscope Teamthere is a difference of opinion, but I would say a queen bee, and it could be a few inches long
- Bugscope Teamhornets can be a few inches long as well
- GuestHow do ants go to the bathroom.
Bugscope Teampretty much like flies and other animals, same way
- Guesthow many ants are in 1 colline
Bugscope Teamthere is a super colony that is said to have 306 million ants in it
- 7:40 pm
- Bugscope Teamthere can be billions of ants in what are called megacolonies that extend for miles and miles underground
- Bugscope Teamants are almost all female
- Bugscope Teamthis is probably some kind of borer beetle, not sure
- Guestwhat is an ant hole like
Bugscope Teamthere are variations, but they have many levels. the ants communicate by producing chemical scents, since they cannot see in the dark
- Bugscope Teamsometimes they build above the ground, in dirt they pile up; sometimes they live in trees, inside the branches
- Guesthow big is he largest bettle
Bugscope Teamabout as big as your fist
- 7:46 pm
- Bugscope Teamwe are lucky that insects cannot get much larger than they already do. if there was more oxygen in the air they could grow larger.
- 7:53 pm
- GuestHow do they chose the queen ant?
Bugscope Teamthe ants that feed the cells in the nest that will become ants feed certain cells different food that will allow those cells to become queens if necessary
- GuestHow do they choose a new queen ant if the old one passes away?
Bugscope TeamI think it is not entirely clear, but of the ants that have been specially fed with the potential to become queens, one will prevail.
- GuestAnd what if a colony is almost entirely wiped out with the exception of a few worker ants?
- 7:59 pm
- GuestWho gets the queen ant pregnant?
Bugscope Teamthe queen ant, when she is young, has wings can fly out to a more distant area where male ants, with wings, can make her pregnant. she then flies back to the hive, and the bees tending her take her wings off. she becomes a large egglaying thing that can no longer move, much less fly
- GuestHow do they know which ants are right for the "queen" title, and what if they are wrong?
- Bugscope Teamqueen ants come from the few ants that are chosen to receive 'royal jelly' as food
- GuestWhat happens if the ants cant eat the "royal jelly"?
- Bugscope Teamif no 'pre-queens' have been produced and the queen dies, the colony may die
- GuestWhat is royal jelly made of?
Bugscope TeamI believe it has different and more nutrients in it but likely it either has hormones in it that can induce the right genes to turn on, or just they fact that there is the right food in the right amounts induces the correct genes to turn on
- 8:04 pm
- GuestHow do they know who to chose to eat the royal jelly?
Bugscope TeamI think in a colony that is running well there are always a few cells devoted to potential queens
- GuestWhoa re the potential queens?
- GuestWhen you say "jelly" do you mean, a gelatinous substance, like jello, or something more loose, like jam?
Bugscope Teamit is a thick fluid that comes from glands in the heads of worker bees. all bees are fed royal jelly, but those who are given it continually have the potential to become queens
- GuestWho are the potential queens?
Bugscope Teamthey are the ants that come from special cells and are continuously fed royal jelly
- Bugscope Teamdrone and worker larvae are fed royal jelly for only 3 days, but the larvae that may become queens are fed it continually
- Guestare you tired of me asking these questions?
Bugscope Teamoh no, but I am trying to get the answers right. not all bees will follow this same pattern; there are lots of variations.
- 8:09 pm
- GuestWhat do the ants eat after they are done being fed the royal jelly?
Bugscope TeamI think they just eat nectar
- Guestgo to eyes
- Guestwhats your favorite insect?
Bugscope TeamI like weevils, leafhoppers, springtails...
- GuestHow do they get the "special cells"? |:3
Bugscope Teamthe workers create the cells, and they are kind of automatons; it seems to be programmed into them to do that.
- GuestYOU WISH YOU WERE AT DA BUG FESTIVAL.
Bugscope Teamyeah I wish I was there.
- Guestscurl up!
- Bugscope Teamthis is the part of the hypostome that sticks into your skin; the spines we see are why it is hard to get ticks to come out of your skin
- Guesthow do cockroces hiss
Bugscope TeamI think they do it by compressing some of their body segments to propel air out of them.
- 8:14 pm
- Bugscope Teamoh they push air through their spiracles
- Bugscope Teamof course
- Bugscope Teamso they compress some of their body segments so that air is forced out through the spiracles
- Guestyo dude
- Bugscope Teamis it busy there?
- Bugscope Teamis it time to close down or are there lots of people?
- Guestlots of people
Bugscope TeamThanks, No. 2
- Bugscope Teamwhat's the t-shirt like this year?
- Guestan ant picking up the ifle tower
Bugscope Teamhaha Cool
- Bugscope TeamTbanks
- Bugscope TeamThanks
- Guestbad spelling
- Bugscope TeamEiffel
- 8:19 pm
- Guesthow do you know were at the festible
Bugscope Teamthat's where the laptops are set up
- Guestbecuse we are at it
- Bugscope TeamI didn't set up this year -- Leilei, Dianwen, and Alex did and I didn't even come over.
- Guesthow big can shark teeht get
Bugscope Teamfossil ones are quite large. even now I bet the large ones are at least half the size of your hand
- Bugscope Teamso one of the fossil shark teeth is 7 inches long
- Guestcan number 2 have control?
Bugscope Teamgot it!
- Guestsrory a boat that a kid did that
- 8:25 pm
- Bugscope Teamprobably the largest shark teeth now are just less than 3" long
- Guestverybody danc now
- Bugscope TeamI think it's probably time to close down.
- Guestdo you have a pc or mac
- Guestno its not
- Guestdo you know what this is?
Bugscope Teamthis is an ant but I don't know what species.
- Bugscope Teamtest
- Guestoh tist a ant hed
- Bugscope Teamsj is on a mac
- Guesthow are you
- Bugscope TeamScot and ScotJ are on PCs
- Bugscope Teamwe'll shut down at 8:30
- Guestwho are you
Bugscope TeamI'm on all three computers.
- Bugscope TeamBye!
- Bugscope Teamtime to go
- Bugscope TeamThank You!
- 8:30 pm
- Bugscope TeamLeilei and Dianwen let's close up shop. Bring the poster back, please.
- Bugscope TeamKind of a lot of stuff to move.
- Bugscope TeamBye!
- Bugscope TeamBye!
- Bugscope TeamBye!
