Great advice re Life’s lessons from : “7 Brutal Life Lessons Everyone Has to Learn Multiple Times”

The most important lesson, I think, is #6:

6. You Cannot Stay the Same Forever–and Trying to Will Hurt You

We tell people to just keep plugging away, that if they just keep trying, and try hard enough, that they will succeed in whatever goal they set for themselves. Nothing could be further from the truth. Sometimes, the smartest thing is to know when to quit, and move on.

WARNING: Des Plaines River Trail between Golf Rd and Central Rd (Kloempken Prairie) – Google Maps is WRONG!!!!!!

Google Maps  says you can ride the Des Plaines River Trail between Golf Rd and Central, unfortunately, the trail is blocked by the currently active railroad tracks of the Union Pacific Railroad Company.,-87.8626227,14z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xc707e42f1c769876!8m2!3d42.0566696!4d-87.8757441

Going north, from Golf and Bender, go north on Bender, it becomes East River Rd, one-way in each direction. Go north until you hit Central, turn left. Westbound Central has a bike lane, take it about a quarter of a mile to the bike path going north.

Eukaryotic cells

I don’t buy the story of the symbiosis of prokaryotic cells to produce eukaryotic cells in the evolution of Life on earth. It makes no sense.

If one cell merged into another, eventually, the larger cell would burst, since the smaller cell would continue to divide. Also, you would need some sort of genetic similarity/compatibility for the symbiosis to continue.

I suggest that the mitochondrial cell within a eukaryotic cell is rather descended from an RNA strand or virus whose source was the cellular DNA of the “parent”/larger cell. For example, a strand of RNA “budded out” from the nucleus, and, eventually, the DNA of both made it a permanent condition because of the division of labor: mitochondria produce ATP for energy, the nucleus takes care of protein production. I mean, think about it. The mitochondria produces ATP for energy. What could it possibly have needed from another prokaryotic cell?

Lynn Margulis’s idea, although accepted canon in biology, simply strains the imagination.
