Myths and Misconceptions About Evolution

Great stuff from the TED-Ed folks! Evolution is much more nuanced and complex than usually presented, but it’s also that much more amazing.

Fish Licks

Next time you’re having a bad day, just be glad you aren’t a fish who gets infected by a parasitic hermaphrodite who then eats the fish’s tongue and takes up residence in its mouth.

NEW VIDEO! 

If you were to flip through the photo album that is your evolutionary family tree, one ancestor after another, all the way back to your great-great-great-great-(etc.)-grandfish… where would the first human show up?

Guess what? There was no first human.

Wait, wut… did he just break evolution? Has Joe gone crazy? Did he fall on his head? Has his brain been taken over by mind-controlling parasites? Why is he saying these things? 

Don’t worry. I’m fine, and so is evolution. The video explains everything :)

Every month is Black History Month at Vintage Black Glamour, so I’m just going to keep doing business as usual here. This is educator, writer, activist Mary Church Terrell. Born in Memphis, Tennessee to wealthy parents who were former slaves (her father, Robert Reed Church, was the South’s first black millionaire), Ms. Church Terrell earned bachelor’s (1884) and master’s (1888) degrees from Oberlin College. She also studied in Europe for several years and was fluent in German, Spanish and French. Her language fluency came in handy in 1904 when she was invited to speak at the International Congress of Women in Berlin, Germany. The only black woman in attendance, she delivered her speech in German, French and English. Ms. Church Terrell was a founder and the first president of the National Association of Colored Women (Charlotte Hawkins Brown was a vice president). Adapting the motto “Lifting As We Climb,” the organization was formed, in part, in response to an attack on the character and respectability of African American women by an influential journalist who referred to them as “thieves and prostitutes”. Ms. Church Terrell died in 1954, at the age of 90, not long after leading the fight to desegregate restaurants in Washington, D.C.
