I came across an article with a video that I think is both interesting as well as relevant in terms of what Evolution portrays and thought this group might want to check it out: http://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2016/09/stunning-...

I knew life forms continuously adapt, but I was surprised at how quickly the bacteria overcame barriers in this experiment.

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

We did this same experiment in science class when I was in college. It's very easy to do. But this video is more elaborate and does a great job of visualizing the process. Thanks for the link!

Pretty interesting that, after the first barrier, some of the mutant strains hit the next one and go, "meh", and keep on going! wow

Meanwhile, our immune system STILL hasn't gotten the memo that we have mitochondria in our body!

To be fair, it's not exactly our mitochondria. They are an invader and a handy one at that.

Also, quite appropriate for Bios Megafauna where everything wants to kill your animals.

Yes, but did you get a paper in Science for it? These authors did! Why? No idea but it looks cool and was on Facebook so...
