EXO v. ENDO




An eighth grade science teacher once told us how to tell the difference between organisms with exoskeletons and those with endoskeletons.

"If you step on an exoskeleton, you'll feel CRUNCH, SQUISH."
"If you step on an endoskeleton, you'll feel SQUISH, CRUNCH."

I loved this so much. Perhaps because it was a touch morbid.

  5. shit you not (and this stuff happens at least once daily): i watched a documentary tonight called "below sea level" (totally hilarious/sad & way worth watching), and a guy discusses the difference between an exoskeleton and an endoskeleton. the end.
