  • K is in darwin, and given the silence of not hearing from him much i would say he's enjoying himself: P I DID hear that at the wedding he caught the garter - but that's it: P lol hoping that he's really enjoying himself, he hasn't been on a holiday in all the 6 years ive known him so i KNOW he deserves it ... still, i miss him like crazy, especially when waking up in the morning, so looking forwards to wednesday when he gets back. my step brother Damian is in hospital in darwin from an industrial accident at his work - his legs were crushed, 25mm lower and they would have amputated, 25mm higher and he never would have walked again, so he's very lucky.

  • DARWINITY

    Power to thine elbow, thou newest of sciences,
    All the old landmarks are ripe for decay;
    Wars are but shadows, and so are alliances,
    Darwin the great is the man of the day.

    All other 'ologies want an apology;
    Bread's a mistake--Science offers a stone;
    Nothing is true but Anthropobiology--
    Darwin the great understands it alone.

    Mighty the great evolutionist teacher is,
    Licking Morphology clean into shape;
    Lord! what an ape the Professor or Preacher is,
    Ever to doubt his descent from an ape.

    Man's an Anthropoid--he cannot help that, you know--
    First evoluted from Pongos of old;
    He's but a branch of the catarrhine cat, you know--
    Monkey I mean--that's an ape with a cold.

    Fast dying out are man's later Appearances,
    Cataclysmitic Geologies gone;
    Now of Creation completed the clearance is,
    Darwin alone you must anchor upon.

    Primitive Life--Organisms were chemical,
    Busting spontaneous under the sea;
    Purely subaqueous, panaquademical,
    Was the original Crystal of Me.

    I'm the Apostle of mighty Darwinity,
    Stands for Divinity--sounds much the same--
    Apo-theistico-Pan-Asininity
    Only can doubt whence the lot of us came.

    Down on your knees, Superstition and Flunkeydom!
    Won't you accept such plain doctrines instead?
    What is so simple as primitive Monkeydom
    Born in the sea with a cold in its head?

  • a logarithmic unit measuring the rate of evolution in characteristics of organisms. If the measurement of a characteristic (such as length, for example) changes from a to b in y million years, then the rate of evolution is (ln b - ln a)/y darwins. (Technically, since the difference in natural logarithms is dimensionless, the darwin is a specialized name for the inverse megayear Ma-1).

  • Also a city (and I use the term ... loosely) in Australia named after Monkeys' Uncle himself.

  • Also denotes a logarithmic unit of evolution: any quantifiable attribute of an organism, esp. size of physical structures, changing by a factor of e (≈ 2.7182818…) per million years, is evolving at the rate of 1 darwin.
