Happy Birthday, Carl Linnaeus!

Carolus Linnaeus made pigeon-holing and characterising animals and plants to an elevated science. In honour of his 300th birthday, a group of scientists in Sweden decided to throw a party to celebrate it. It took 3 years to organise (any wedding planner given this kind of time-line would run screaming into the night).

Have a look at the party here. It is super awesome.

I only like cats in pictures or the stuffed variety (toy). Live types need not apply.

Yup, geeks throw the best parties.

Zu: If you ever take a taxonomy class, you may feel like setting Linnaeus on fire. XD
