Questions from the Canteen

Kirstie from the canteen posed us three questions this week. We want her to come and tell us what she thinks about them!

— Where did surnames come from?

— When did consciousness start? [Does this have anything to do with a moment, 3,000 years ago, when the two hemispheres of our brain started working together? And are only humans conscious? What about the crows who use cars as nutcrackers [SEE BELOW]?

— Why did evolution take away our fur? [If evolution is about making things better, then how can we have lost something as useful as fur?]

We’ll come back to these! In the meantime: here’s evolution in action.
