Charles Darwin himself celebrated his 210th birthday a bit early at the University of Calgary’s 34th annual Darwin Dinner last Friday:
p.s. If you think this looks less like Charles Darwin than like a man who was cut four times from his college improv comedy group and has never gotten over it, well, I can see why you’d think that. But you’re wrong, it’s totally Charles Darwin. 🙂

Nice Jeremy! Wow, cut four times!? That shows an unbelievable amount of dedication and determination.
I made callbacks three times, so it’s not as if I had no hope…
And thanks for the kind words, but honestly it was fine. I wasn’t gutted about getting cut. My attitude about it was actually similar to my attitude about the faculty job market. It was a thing I wanted to do, that many other good people wanted to do too. So I took my best shot, knowing that it might well not work out and that if it didn’t, well, no hard feelings, at least I tried.
😀 😀 Amazing!! Well done!
