As we communally slide ever further into drunkeness and obesity, I wish you all a very merry Christmas or a superlatively happy holiday, whichever you prefer. Best wishes to all of you and your families, friends and loved ones.

Over the next few days, I’ll stick up write-ups of a few cool studies that I missed out on when I was in Australia, a review of my favourite stuff of the year, a very special repost. And then on New Year’s Eve, it’s back on the road with new news with lots of punishment, hyperparasites, and genetic transfer.
