  • Mr. Hume, my science teacher, taught us about this primordial soup full of natural gases and muddy slop and carbon matter that somehow solidified into one-celled organisms called choanoflagellates…which sound a lot more like a sexually transmitted disease than the start of the evolutionary chain, in my opinion.
