Did it get more Darwinian in here or is it just you?

Happy Darwin Day, everyone! Obviously you all know it already, and I (usually?) hate to beat a dead and fossilized horse, but there are amusing shenanigans afoot.

1. I’ll be at the Harvard Darwin Day party tonight around 8pm. You should be, too! If you’re not around my neck of the woods, check out to find something local.

2. I just published a short Darwin Day post over on Bostonist. Go, read, enjoy!

3. Today’s your last day to enter the Skepchick Darwinian Playlist Contest. Go, listen, compile!

4. If you’re on Twitter, I’m running a mini contest to find the best Darwinian Pick-up Line! Make it short and sweet (or dirty) and include the hashtag #DarwinPickup. You can follow me here, and the Skepchicks account here. Here are previous Skepchick pick-up lines.

5. Finally, check out this great Origin of Species cake made by an SGU listener!

  1. And yet, through these celebrations there will be people who “don’t believe in that evolution stuff,” and don’t recognize the name Darwin.

    I hope by the 250th birthdays this isn’t a problem, but who knows? We have a lot of work to do, I think.
