Why Evolution Is True
Why Evolution is True is a blog written by Jerry Coyne, centered on evolution and biology but also dealing with diverse topics like politics, culture, and cats.
Forgive me but I’m a little lost here. Does the significance lie with the flower or the friend?
Omg yay! That is wonderful
(It’s Tom Stoppard)
Thanks and kudos to you for knowing Stoppard on sight!
I’m a nerdy fangirl 🙂
Tell us about your (unexpected) public debate with Tom.
Thank goodness for that. For a second I thought Stoppard was a surgeon proudly showing off the results of the first complete nose-flower transplant.
For a horrible moment I thought it was Roger Scruton . . . then I reasoned he would never carry a shoulder bag.
I thought Jimmy Page had let himself go.
Chance encounter, or at the same meeting?
And what are you standing on – a giant ping-pong table?
Jerry got drafted into a round-table discussion on Saturday since Philip Pullman was ill. I’m sorry I missed it, but it was sold-out anyway before I decided to come to Hay.
Anyway, I’m sure he’ll give us the story when he gets back from vacation.
I heard it was Stoppard who froze in his tracks, pointed and shouted,
“OMG, it’s Jerry Coyne!!!”
There must have been a moment, when I first saw the photo, when I could have said “Stoppard.” But somehow I missed it.
Sad thing is, I’m a big fan and saw him delivering a lecture not long ago at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. Further evidence that I’m horrible with names and faces.
I laughed when I saw the picture, it reminded me so much of Mike Wazoski in MonstersInc
Jerry Wazowski Coyne!
I had to follow the link to the Gay Otters. I didn’t even know there was a zoo in Nelson (about 100km west of here), let alone that it had otters, let alone gay. The wonders of automatic link generation.
