Photoshop is Fun!

(Don't scroll down if you're at work. It didn't turn out as well as I wanted it to, but it's still not quite so work-safe.)

I was in my history of science class this morning (it counts as a science credit, and it sure beat chemistry), actually paying attention for once. We're starting a unit on Evolution, and my teacher says:
Charles Darwin was hired as a "gentleman's companion" upon the HMS Beagle to help the captain pass the time.
I laughed out loud. Loudly.

Everyone kind of looked at me, and then she explained that it was socially unacceptable for the Captain of a ship to fraternize with the lowly sailors. Captains would get bored, and so eventually they learned to invite upper-middle-class men to eat dinner with and converse with. I felt really dumb.

Silly me. I was thinking of the all the porn opportunities.

(edit. This would have been much funnier if I didn't have homework and therefore would have spent more time in photoshop. Really, it would have been.)
Here lies a most ridiculous raw youth, indulging himself in the literary graces that he once vowed to eschew. Now he just rocks out.
