    Brass does not equal brains.

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to control it.

    Honestly, what makes you say "hey, lets go out today and see if we can get blown up, worse case scenario is we are in the hospital or dead, but how will ya know if you don't try?"

    I just cant process that.

    Default Gotta love Darwin's theory

    Darwin came to understand that any population consists of individuals that are all slightly different from one another. Those individuals having a variation that gives them an advantage in staying alive long enough to successfully reproduce are the ones that pass on their traits more frequently to the next generation. Subsequently, their traits become more common and the population evolves. Darwin called this "descent with modification."

    The Galápagos finches provide an excellent example of this process. Among the birds that ended up in arid environments, the ones with beaks better suited for eating cactus got more food. As a result, they were in better condition to mate. Similarly, those with beak shapes that were better suited to getting nectar from flowers or eating hard seeds in other environments were at an advantage there. In a very real sense, nature selected the best adapted varieties to survive and to reproduce. This process has come to be known as natural selection.

    Guess that was this guy's problem. He didn't have a long enough beak

    THIS is funny. Glad I wasn't drinking anything when I got to the bottom line.

    I have a 32 page graduate paper on "The Darwinian Revolution" I can post if anyone wants to learn why people are stupid. Honestly, I do consider him to be the most influential person of all time.
