Lately I’ve been learning about xenophyophores. They’re quite fascinating. Have you ever heard of them?

I have not.  Go go gadget Wikipedia.

Huh.  So they’re… kinda like great big deep-sea sponges, but actually more closely related to amoebas?  And… single-celled?  Wow.  That’s one heck of a cell.  But multiple nuclei, which strikes me as cheating somewhat.  I mean that’s essentially just a whole bunch of cells that really don’t have their $#!t together.  Like Reuniclus.  But yeah, that’s all pretty neat.
