In honor of our main man today, Charlie D, the Southern Fried Scientist and I are having a Darwin beard challenge. To have an even playing field, we shaved it down this morning. We start today as Darwin started his life, naked and smooth like a monkey baby’s bum. This is something I have not done since November 2003, when I went down in Alvin. Even then, I was a bearded since I could grow facial. The things I do for science. Beards shall be grown from now until October 1, the date of the publication of the 1st edition of On the Origin of Species, by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life as printed in the book. We’ll be posting weekly updates on both Deep Sea News and Southern Fried Science. We invite all readers and bloggers to participate! You can post your weekly update on your own blog or send them into me at deepseanews at gmail dot com. Who among ye will take up this mighty challenge for science? Viva la Evolucíon!
You can still see us in all our former bearded glory if it frightens you too much.
