One year ago today I found this. Actually a dog found it. A killer dog -- a true predator. The dog grabbed something out of an ivy patch and ran off, and when I saw some tiny legs hanging out of its mouth I thought "Oh no". Now I've learned you don't take things away from this dog, I mean you can but they don't survive so I said "Alright Dog, just make it quick!!" But Dog didn't. Dog walked around with it, dropped it, picked it up again, dropped it, picked it up again, and I thought "Geeeez what's wrong with you Dog????" So when Dog dropped it again I picked it up. My first thought was "chipmunk" because they hang out in the ivy but it was a baby and already the size of a chipmunk. So it's a squirrel. Or a rat. I set it back in the ivy hoping mother squirrel or mother rat would come back for it, and me and Dog left it alone. Hours later it was still there so I consulted with a knowledgeable human. I needed a second opinion. "Is this a squirrel or a rat?" My consultant said "I'm pretty sure it's a rat. I should probably kill it. You don't want rats around." I said "Wait I'll Google it!" And that's what I did. I think I typed in *how tell difference between baby rat and baby squirrel* and would you believe someone had the same question a few years ago? Well, when I found my answer it actually came in the form of another question. Someone asked the person who found the baby squirrel/rat "Does it have thumbs?" Squirrels have thumbs. Rats don't. I ran to check and YES! THUMBS!!!!! This photo isn't the best but it's the very first photo I took of little Vicki, and if you zoom in you can actually see her little thumb! πŸΏπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ #thestoryofMissVicki #inanutshell #itsalldowntothethumbs #HappyAnniversaryBabyGotYouOnMyMind #oneyearagotoday #thankyouGoogle

The monarch chrysalis this morning looks like a lovely jade charm with gold flecks. It's outer skin has dried and hardened, and it will now hang for about 10-14 days transforming into a beautiful monarch butterfly! πŸ›πŸ¦‹ #monarch #caterpillar #transformation #chrysalis #fromcaterpillartobutterfly #monarchbutterfly #plantmilkweed #nature

4. ....and still more shedding -- I cut a little bit of the video -- as the caterpillar/chrysalis drops its skin completely! Next time I may try to capture this in a live Instagram Story. This process seems to usually take place overnight so I feel very fortunate to have captured it this morning! Hope you all enjoyed it, fellow nature freaks and all!! #πŸ›πŸ¦‹ #monarch #caterpillar #transformation #fromcaterpillartobutterfly #monarchbutterfly #plantmilkweed #naturefreak

Did you all see this?????? πŸ€– It's happening.... "Researchers at Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research built a chatbot earlier this year that was meant to learn how to negotiate by mimicking human trading and bartering.
But when the social network paired two of the programs, nicknamed Alice and Bob, to trade against each other, they started to learn their own bizarre form of communication.
The chatbot conversation "led to divergence from human language as the agents developed their own language for negotiating," the researchers said.
Facebook's AI language:
Bob: i can i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me

Bob: you i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to me

Bob: i i can i i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to

Bob: i . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (They were supposed to be learning to trade balls, hats, and books, assigning values then bartering them)
