Happy Darwin Day, everyone! Answered

On February 12, 1809, in the town of Shrewsbury, England, Charles Robert Darwin was born. If you somehow don't already know, he's the guy that rode a beagle and played with birds and was a monkey's uncle and wrote some book. This Friday celebrates his 201st birthday. In other words, PARTAY!

I will be wearing my science shirt in honor of the holiday, due to my unfortunate lack of suitable Darwinian attire...I shall also be eating ramen noodles in honor of the Pastafarian holiday of Friday, but that's mostly because I'll be working a play and that's all I have time to eat. How do YOU plan to celebrate this auspicious occasion?

It's also Abraham Lincoln's birthday, but no one cares about him.

Ummmm...I think I'll be engaging in a fair bit of selection pressure -- killing mosquitos stupid enough to get near me, and encouraging my daughter's intellectual development.  Eventually, the mosquitos will evolve to be smart enough to stay away, and my daughter will avoid stupid boyfriends :-)

British mosquitoes evolved a different survival tactic - they went underground.

NOOOO!  You'll be responsible for the birth of the SUPER-SKEETER! 

BTW- In Arkansas, I'm pretty sure our "state bird" IS the mosquito.

I'm wondering why I'm awake at 1:45, now I know. Darwin was communicating telepathically with me from the dead O.O
