Ted Rall Toon- Candidate's Portraits

Carson's one is real:

I do find it amusing

They are getting so fed up with 'the bug' that they are turning off signature line displays. Of course, putting 'the bug' in the main text of a post would be such a rude response to them, now would it not? Probably best to stick to the high road and not irritate them more….

Complex Skeletons Evolved Earlier Than Thought

The first animals to have complex skeletons existed about 550 million years ago, fossils of a tiny marine creature unearthed in Namibia suggest.

The find is the first to suggest the earliest complex animals on Earth -- which may be related to many of today's animal species -- lived millions of years earlier than was previously known.

Until now, the oldest evidence of complex animals -- which succeeded more primitive creatures that often resembled sponges or coral -- came from the Cambrian Period, which began around 541 million years ago. Scientists had long suspected that complex animals had existed before then but, until now, they had no proof.

Genetic family tree data suggested that complex animals -- known as bilaterians -- evolved prior to the Cambrian Period. The finding suggests that bilaterians may have lived as early as 550 million years ago, during the late Ediacaran Period.

The study suggests that complex animals existed long before a period in the planet's history -- known as the Cambrian explosion -- during which most major animal groups evolved.
