He named this notebook “/b/”

This is quite fun – a debunking of Ray Comfort’s debunking of Darwin. It features such historical truths as, “if you wanted to peddle science, cigars, or cough drops in Victorian England, you had to sport a Beard of Great Acclaim (BOGA).” Speaking of Darwin’s Voyage of the Beagle, it notes:

The book was a boffo hit. Charles Darwin was now a household name. Realizing his plan now had its foot in the door, Charles finished his first “scientific” notebook to start afresh in a second one. In it, he would put a brain dump of the craziest, wildest, most twisted things he could imagine, and see if he could squeak a theory out of any of it. He named this notebook “/b/”.

Props if you get the reference in the last two sentences. I’ll spare you a link if you don’t.

  2. This certainly explains Darwin’s strange final work, “The Expression of Emotions in Man and Goatse.”

    And if you don’t get that reference, I highly recommend not looking it up. Seriously. Do not google that. It is the sort of thing that cannot be ungoogled. You have been warned.
