David Icke was right!

This here is the rootinest, tootinest, evolvinest lizard of them all. It’s a tuatara from New Zeland and, heck, he’s the downright evolvinest critter period on this here Earth.

when Lambert’s team analysed mitochondrial DNA sequences from 650 to 8000-year-old tuatara remains and compared them with those of living tuatara, they found that the reptile is evolving almost 10 times as fast as the average animal. It is accumulating an average of 1.37 substitutions per base pair every million years compared with an average of 0.2

Well shoot. That’s a whole lot of evolution (if you believe in that sort of thing). I for one welcome our new lizard overlords and I guess the world owes David Icke an apology. Sorry, Dave.

    He’s one of my favorite nuts. And as a half Jew I really do hope to collaborate with the lizard men a little to repress all of you…well, we call you “sssnargraths”. It doesn’t translate well from lizidarian, but it’s sort of this bone, fur, feces mix that comes from eating small mammals, that’s sort of how the lizards view humanity. Mostly I’m hoping to get in on that hot crossbreeding action. Lizard women are freaks in the bed from what I hear. Or…what passes for lizard beds.
