Undeniable Fact: I'm all eyes!

Wednesday, October 11, 2006

The fossil record tells us that our distant ancestors had two sets of eyes and no ears. Over time, two of the eyes migrated to the sides of the head and became ears through evolution. This is of course even further evidence of our relationship to bats.

Charles Darwin demonstrated human's potential for sonar echo location by successfully navigating Euston Station, London whilst blindfolded in May, 1814.

Darwin, emitting a series of sharp yelps and using a paper cone to listen for resulting echoes, correctly located and boarded the 2.47pm Express to Milton Keynes, thus winning a wager with George Bernard Shaw for 10,000 shares in the Dutch East India Company

Darwin's bet was with Keynes to Shaw station, Bob. Keynes did all the yelping, Darwin simply listened for the echo. The term "keen hearing" originated from this famous demonstration.
