Biologists play reverse Pokémon, trying to avoid putting any one team member on the front lines long enough for the experience to cause evolution.

On CatDog, evolutionary orgasms, waste excretion and logic

  • Friend: Okay so remember CatDog?
  • Me: Yes.
  • Friend: And did you see the episode of Family Guy last season where Peter has to go to AA, and he's wasted talking to Brian about how CatDog goes to the bathroom. That's probably the funniest moment in Family Guy in the past three years, which is saying something because it's been getting better.
  • Me: Yeah.
  • Friend: And when I was a kid, my dad was really disturbed by that show for exactly that reason.
  • Me: It probably just oozes out the pores. I mean if an orgasm like that evolved, it probably has means of excreting waste unlike those we've seen before.
  • Friend: Hahaha. I'm just going to move past that typo.
  • Me: Haha. Probably best.
  • Friend: But yes, that is true, and that was always my assumption.
  • Me: Cause that's logical.

Miss USA 2011 contestants on whether evolution should be taught in schools. Just…wow.

I started trying to track how many said “Yes” it should be taught, no it shouldn’t or that a combination of both should be taught. Then I was going to compare those numbers with how many said they believe in evolution, how many didn’t and how many didn’t say one way or the other.

But then my brain began to hurt and I gave up.

"God could not be reached for comment by press time, because, a spokesman says, he was helping a baseball player hit a game-winning home run, giving an old churchgoing lady the winning lottery numbers, making sure that a plane made it through the turbulence okay, helping someone survive a heart attack, and also, just for fun, creating a new animal that’s like a cross between a leopard and an alligator."
