With Mr. Charles Darwin turning 204 years old today, I’d feel remiss if we didn’t take a moment to delve into the man’s groundbreaking body of scientific work. Back in 1859, ol’ Charlie posited that species mutate over time through a process called ‘natural selection.’ You know, where the strong survive and the weak perish, the latter taking their crappy DNA along with them. Over generations, this ushers in a series of (usually) positive genetic changes. We’re talking instinctual, physical, cognitive, or all three — an ‘evolution,’ if you will.
An on this, the birthday of the original Chuck D., I’d like to expand on his most famous of writings. My theory? The tenets of natural selection apply not just to organic matter, but inorganic as well. A revolutionary hypothesis to be sure, albeit one clearly supported by the events that unfold in the below video.
Put another way: this jacked-up garden hose pumps out freakin’ ICE instead of water! Duuuuude!
