Happy Darwin Day!

Thanks to kjc, who says:
Well today, 12 February 2008, is DARWIN DAY! Today we celebrate the 199th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin on 12 February 1809.

Wikipedia sez, "The day is also an opportunity to highlight Darwin's contribution to science and to promote science in general."

Hints on celebrating DARWIN DAY: http://www.darwinday.org/
As I'm a paper money geek, I thought I'd add this Bank of England page on the £10 note, which features "a portrait of Charles Darwin on the back":



The Bank of England also include details about his life.

I'd love to celebrate the day by giving away copies of the above portrait, along with the rest of the banknote, which also features a portrait of the Queen (two portraits for a single low price!) but I'm afraid that's beyond my means.

Someone else should, though. :)
