Two Scientific Shorts

I noted these things back in December 1994:
  • The oldest and largest living organism isn't an animal. It's a underground fungus that's about 37 acres large and 10 thousand years old. It's in Michigan's Upper Peninsula right by the Wisconsin border:
  • Cro-Magnon Man and Neanderthal Man co-existed about 35 thousand years ago until Cro-Magnon Man pushed out/co-opted/killed the Neanderthals.
