i think i’m in love

If I make it to my eighties and i’m as charismatic and on-the-ball as Elaine Morgan, i’ll count myself very fortunate. Here she is championing the theory that humans evolved at some point in history in a water-based environment (the “aquatic ape theory”).

I have no idea if the theory holds any water (pun not intended) but I admire its fantastic latitude. I also feel somewhat calmed to know that, under this theory, my burgeoning gut may have some sort of evolutionary justification.
