“…what a miracle life is…”
Calvin was hilarious. Actually, I’m kinda recalling right now his fascination with archaeology (kids and digging in the mud, awww)
Gotta go hunt up those comics. ^.^
Here’s to my bio exam on Wednesday. By the way, the answer is Lamarck.
Lamarck’s law of inheritance of acquired characters, though seemingly laughable, was not that off the mark,
I had gone too long without making science jokes. Also, if you didn’t know about Lamarckian Evolution before, now you do. The phrase “inheritance of acquired characteristics” is the usual description of it, but I didn’t want to be too academic in the comic. I mean, I am somewhat pedantic, but I still want the comic to be generally accessible.
I finished Mass Effect 2 today, and I’m pissed. Mostly because Jack didn’t die, despite all my machinations. Instead, Tali, Zaeed, and Samara died. I expected Zaeed to die (didn’t do his loyalty mission), and I lost Tali’s loyalty when I sided with Legion (because he’s cooler), but I still tried to save her. I think I know what went wrong with Samara, and she isn’t missed much. I was afraid Kasumi was going to die at the end for a second, but she didn’t. Which was good, because she isso cool. Now to purchase and play 3.
That’s all for now.

Starting to study evolution right about now.
- You can’t study in public places like coffee shops, libraries etc because instead of studying your damn texts you end up studying the damn people.
- You get frustrated in conversations when people make comments like “well isn’t that how their culture is”, or they incorrectly reference a part of their body or how it functions.
- Sometimes you ask questions people think are invasive or awkward, but not for the sake of being awkward or invasive, but because you’re genuinely curious about them, their culture or their physiology [we’re all different and it’s interesting as fuck…right??? That’s why you chose Anthro as a major after all. God knows it wasn’t those episodes of Bones you watched in High School. DURH].
- When you learned about marriage and society, you immediately and concurrently thought “holy fuck America’s doing it all wrong” and “God, I’m never getting married” .
Oh genetics jokes, how they make me chuckle.
