      Eels!! Absolutely loved this. This is AOTD worthy for sure. Go eels, go!

        A relief from Covid news and sad tales about FB moderators and other unnerving jobs. Totally fascinating and I, too, had NO idea!

      A downer ending but made me appreciative of eels. I want to know and I also don't want to know (in general).

        So true. Ending was tough.

        I enjoyed reading about Rachel Carson.
