Happy Darwin Day!

It's that time of year again, people. No, I'm not talking about your annual pondering over whether you'd rather buy your significant other a Valentine's present or just break up with them. It's Charles Darwin's birthday! And some other guy's. Anyway, instead of linking to a bunch of obligatory articles from other skeptical sites or to some Richard Dawkins rant about how Darwin is great and Harry Potter is ridonculous, I bring you two Darwin-centric items from the fringes of the Internet. First, the humor blog over at hipster Mecca McSweeneys.net has a funny piece by David Ng entitled "Ways Charles Darwin Could Jump the Shark". And over at Gamasutra, veteran video game designer Noah Falstein explores the ways Darwin's discoveries have influenced the evolution of game design. Go get your geek on, people.
