The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is online for all your Latiny and Old English gratification. (Grokked from Sarah Goslee)

We are special. As a species. And here you see the blind spot in most science. We can not see the world except through our eyes. By the same reasoning, lactobacillus is also a special snowflake. And all life on earth is special, unlikely to have an exact analog in other biosystems. Although animals will fill similar niches, and we believe the basic functions of life would be the same, you can look at life on Earth and see how many different ways nature solves the same problems in different ways. So, we are probably unique in the universe. But so is the ant.
