Its great to see that others like finding minutia like this!

It also makes me wonder if in a million years our preserved species will be looked and collected by some over evolved bug, who says to his fellow scientist bug, “You wouldn’t believe what I found today, a Homo sapien with an especially large toe fungus!”
