No, it's Lonesome George he's a tortoise in the Galapagos. The last of his species.

I heard they might have gotten him to mate finally though, so we'll see.

Despite the deep pain it caused me, I still read all of Comfort's comments. I experienced a kind of dark pleasure from it and I fear this speaks to some kind of masochistic tenancies.

I'm guessing that all of the regulars on this site experienced the same feeling. Did you all find yourselves reading with your mouths progressively opening and your faces twisting into an expression of pain and confusion? Did your eyes bulge out further and further each time a new sentence was inflicted upon you? You should be inured to their arguments, but admit it - they still affect you (maybe not in the exact same way), even after the 100th time you've heard them. Yet, you read on.

Well, despite what the commenters have said, I don't think Comfort is an idiot. I think what pisses us off so much is that we know his arguments (however obviously wrong they are to us) might still work on some people.

Well why don't we come up with our own nickname. How about "Darwin's Male Fig Wasp"? They're quite violent and who knows - maybe people will even look up what they are.

Maybe we should alter our strategy and trick people into learning...
