Fins to Feet


Introduction to Fins To Feet

Some quick points to a first-time visitor:

– I started this website in 2010, at the age of eighteen, with the aim of broadly documenting the history of vertebrate life on earth in a series of short essays. My hopes of achieving this goal within a reasonable time frame (say, a few months) were entirely demolished once I finished my first article, which took weeks of research, spanned over two thousand words and dealt only with the evolution and biology of sea squirts. 

– While I would certainly class myself as an enthusiast and a lover of life’s history, I freely admit that I have little formal experience/professional training in the fields of Geology, Zoology or Paleontology. My undergraduate training thus far has been primarily focused on Cell and Molecular biology.  I will try my level best to substantiate my posts with citations from credible sources. Please feel free to point out any patently false claims I may have made in my posts.

– In my writings, I hope to convey a sense of the grandeur and the glory of the vertebrate story, from the emergence of the first chordates down to the coming of man. I want my readers to see past the names and the complicated terminologies. I want them to feel the rise and fall of animal empires and the passing of eons. A summer I spent reading The Decline And Fall of The Roman Empire by Edward Gibbons – a truly remarkable work of history and high literature – inspired me to try my own hand at historical writing. The history I picked to write on is one that has occupied my imagination for as long as I can remember . While I am not quite the wordsmith that Gibbons was,  I hope I do my subject matter some justice.

I said it before and I’ll say so again … if there is anyone who can summarize something so expansive and make it seem remotely intriguing .. It’s you!
P.S. Why isn’t there a subscribe bar … you trying to deny me something McShizzle?

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however ,
I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or
maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog discusses a
lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit
from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and everything. But imagine
if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more,
“pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its niche.

Fantastic blog!

Home made porn with actual girls next-door for any style – Moms, Wives, Grannies, Milf’s, Fatties!
Personal Novice Porn Videos (HOT!) Awesome smelling pink moist pussies get fucked hard
by big cocks! Real Cuckold Residence Porn So I
will simply say it thusly – watch out downloading crappy
porn apps on your phone or pill It’s no enjoyable attempting to
clarify to the great girl on the cellphone from T-Cellular (insert your provider
here) that you do not actually wish to get premium SMS messages
from some company and you stumbled across it on accident while testing Android apps.
She’s not going to believe you, and you’ll be paying $10 for that first month any means you slice it.
And likelihood is, the app will suck anyway. And, apart from.
The Android browser works simply nice.
