Evolution and Things That Evolve

Lots of things evolve.

Language. Here's an incredible video: "The History of English in Ten Minutes" from The Open University. It is well worth the ten minutes.

Whales. (And, you know, other living things.) Tom Mueller wrote an article for National Geographic that I am pretty much in love with. Check it out: Valley of the Whales: An Egyptian desert, once an ocean, holds the secret to one of evolution’s most remarkable transformations. I mentioned this article before in a post about pacing and sentence length and it remains one of my all-time favorite examples of science writings. Also: WHALES. WITH. LEGS.

Pokemon. They evolve. You should know this.


Now You!
What else evolves?
