2day is Charles Darwin's 200th birthday!

I think he's looking pretty good, considering!

Silly ol'bear!

;-P

Today I will lift my glass in thanks for my opposable thumbs!


I never had to take the Kobayashi Maru test until now. What do you think of my solution?

O'hana means family, and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.

In honor of Darwin Day I think we should immediately adjourn here:

And quaff a few recently evolved quaffables.

He promised he'd dropped by if I posted this thread, and it looks like I did!

2long -

I'm starting to think that Darwin had a point!!!! My Beta fish pulled himself out of the water and onto the top of lilypad today. Seriously!!! Luckily I saw, and put him back in the water before he started walking.

If Darwin was right, wouldn't guys like FWW's OM have died out long ago?

I know that a century ago I could have killed him with my bare hands and had no problem with the law.

Ah, the good ole days...

When I was a teenager and had a bunch of aquariums in my room, some of my fish would do that.

And, it being a teenage boy's room, some of their fates went unresolved for a couple of years, if they jumped behind the aquarium stand!

Oh 2Long, I was hoping that the fish did this in honor of Happy Darwin Day.

A promise is a promise, pal.

In recognition of Darwin Day, I bring you proof that we have not yet finished evolving:

State of Kansas Periodic Table of Elements

earth air fire water

This unfavorable mutation will not thrive.

Wait a minute,

No wonder Dorothy left Kansas in such a hurry...

PS: Good to see you WAT.

I just realized that WAT didn't promise he'd stay! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/eek.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Wonder what that'd take?

Hi WAT! Good to hear from you!!!

2Long...unresolved for several years?!? <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/eek.gif" alt="" />

One of my brothers earned extra pocket money through high school and part of college selling animal bones, mostly skulls, to a science supply place in the Bay Area.

In the back yard, he had an odiferous Dead Box, completely furnished with dermestid beetles he had found himself.

On one memorable occasion, after he found a bunch of livestock corpses in a deep pit out in a field, he brought some of them home. He was still too young to drive, so when he brought the twin lambs, they were so far decayed that he had to stand in the open side door of the van and hold the stinking bag on the roof. Fortunately we didn't see CHP officers too often that far out in the country, but all in the name of science.

You can probably imagine what his room was like, too. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

When I was 8, I put snails down the tetherball pole in our back yard.

When we moved 2 Ohio about a year and a half later, my dad was disassembling the tetherball setup with us kids watching (I didn't remember by that time).

When he pulled the sections of pipe apart where the seam was, about a foot off the ground, this smelly black ooze poured out and all over his hands and shoes!

I think one of my sisters ratted on me when he asked what the heck that was!

I think he thought it was funny as much as it was disgusting.

I did stuff like that...

Neak, with stories like that about your brother and you wonder where the Dervish came from.

(Your mother has a lot to answer for doesn't she - her genes must be VERY, VERY strong) Tee hee

BTW when I first saw this thread I found it funny on about a hundred different levels.

That's funny.

I guess the people I work with are just kids in grownup bodies.

We don't use beetles here tho....we put the treasures on an ant mound. Right now we've got a sheep's skull, a couple of turtle shells, and a deer skull littered about the back area here.

I'm sure the doctor's office next door keeps their blinds closed all the time.

(hehe)
