Human Evolution Animated

This video has been going around a bit. It’s an animation based on a thirty metre long book filled with various animals from human all the way down to simple prehistoric animals, then back up to human. It’s very simple, but shows very well how we evolved. Take a look.

550 million years of evolution in less than a minute. Easy to understand, isn’t it?

What do you think of it? Have you found any similar videos showing some aspect of science in a simple and easy to understand way?

Talking to Books

I’ve talked to books before. One was a poorly written book with incredibly incorrect science. I said, “You have got to be kidding me.” I’ve spoken to characters I thought were doing something stupid.

How about you? What have you read that made you talk to the book? Or maybe shout, yell, or swear at it or a character?
