Charles Darwin menaces an iguana.

Picture Charles Darwin conducting his research on his world-changing expedition to the Galapagos islands. Do you imagine him serious and scholarly, or youthful and enthusiastic? I bet what you do not picture him doing is spending an afternoon repeatedly throwing an iguana into the sea in the name of science. The same iguana.

A marine iguana, for once not being bullied by Charles Darwin.

He did, though. From his Journal of the Voyage of the Beagle:


It's an arresting mental image, isn't it? I would love to know how many times 'several' is. Surely at least six. Nor had Charlie finished playing tricks on lizards:


I hope these two iguanas were related. 'You'll never guess what happened to me today!' 'Wait, wait, me first...'

Have you heard of the Darwin Awards? They're given to people who die doing stupid things.

Voted!

The randomness of your blog never fails to disappoint

Funny how scientists of yore were so quick to anthropomorphise, at a time when animal cruelty was rampant – now we're not supposed to ascribe human thoughts or feelings to animals but having compassion for them goes without saying. There's got to be some sort of interesting social study in there. (probably not as fun as chucking iguanas into the sea, though.)

Due to a lot of hardships and circumstances beyond my control, my scores were in the ditch. It will literally take way too long for me to try sending (3 letters to the 3 credit bureaus) and waiting for the negative items to eventually be deleted. However, I searched online for credit specialist and I saw a review on credit magic about a credit specialist and I must admit I was impressed. I quickly emailed him on; arstrongcyberwizard@yahoo.com Whatsapp +8616608642225 asking if he could help me fix my credit score. He replied and after discussing the process, we moved on and guess what? He actually fixed my credit and raised my score from 380 to 850. All debts were checked as paid and the late payments appeared as on time payment. He deleted the inquires, student loans, medical bills and the bankruptcy filled 2016. I strongly recommend him for your credit repair. You can contact him and enjoy his service Whatsapp +8616608642225
