Tiny, liverwort-loving aliens?
The NYT picked up this AP story originally from the Knoxville News Sentinel about bullseye-like “mini crop circles” on tree bark.
I admit, I’m puzzled, because
– that looks like an ear to me, not a bullseye or a crop circle.
– that looks like a moss to me, not a liverwort. Even zoomed in. But I hear it really is a liverwort.
I’d sarcastically observe that the hypothetical aliens aren’t going to get anyone’s attention by making itty-bitty crop circles on a tree in the middle of a forest. But this story got picked up by the NYT, so I guess I’d be wrong, wouldn’t I?
Those tiny aliens are so smart!
