To Evolve, or Not to Evolve... Is That the Question?

It's Evolution Day, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Obviously, the Three J's still have a long way to go up the human family tree. (Thanks to Pinhead and UU for the images!) If y0u ever want to peek at this groundbreaking work, look no further.

By chance, today is also the 35th anniversary of the discovery in Africa of Lucy, the female australopithecine (at left, shown with husband Ricky) who redefined human evolution. Here's lookin' at ya, kid.

Dale Carnegie, who wrote How to Win Friends and Influence People (a favorite book of Jodie Landon, per "Gifted") , was born 121 years ago today.

And this is the 38th anniversary of the strangest unsolved robbery in history. Wither didst thou goest, D.B. Cooper? And can anyone make a Daria fanfic out of this?
