Pop Culture+Science=Meme


"Meme-theorists contend that memes evolve by natural selection (similarly to Darwinian biological evolution) through the processes of variation, mutation, competition, and inheritance influencing an individual entity's reproductive success. So with memes, some ideas will propagate less successfully and become extinct, while others will survive, spread, and, for better or for worse, mutate."

I never pass memes on, but this week I was actually reading about them here,  and actually I find the concept fascinating. So in honor of science, pop-culture and something to blog about, here's one that was sent to me this week...
