Southern Fried Science
Southern Fried Science is a blog founded in 2008 by a group of graduate students in the Carolinas who love the ocean, and are enthralled by all the living things in it.
This group is also doing a spot for 365 days of Darwin on their blog. Here a Darwin that looks strikingly similar to another Darwin I've met in class previously checks out the new technology that's been invented since his time. He seems to have embraced the free market and materialism as he is now showcasing ecological paraphernalia such as endangered species condoms, sustainable water bottles and marine ecology mugs. He also gets a taste of his own medicine when he is "sampled" by being placed in a jar and put on display for a day.
Charlie also gets to see creatures he never would have been able to see such as the deep sea tube worms, thanks to the Southern Fried Science Team and the internet. The team also collects specimens, such as the deep sea isopod so Darwin can see these creatures first hand.
To check out Darwin's day to day activities at the Southern Fried Science Lab go to:
and see all that the man is still doing for evolution!
