    The Mighty Tardigrade Behold the awesome water bear A tiny puffy hero Who floats beyond our atmosphere At absolute near zero A brave and fearless debonair Who hardly needs to eat Amoeba here, a dewdrop there It's good to go tout suite A boiling hot tub suits its ways For rest and relaxation And catching a few tanning rays Of cosmic radiation Wherever its eight legs do go It's always got it made To sail the universe's flow The mighty tardigrade - James Leftwich

    So they will be the natural dwellers of the planet after global warming will wipe away most of us. Lovely. I thought they existed only in Star Trek.

    Obviously, we need to mutate into tardigrades.

    What it does not tell us is how many of these wonderful creatures were tortured to gain this information 😡

    When humans meet a living form, they have to make them suffer to see at which point they die. We have no respect for life.
