Great Darwin Beard Challenge – Week 4 – The Mugshots

Alright, so Kevin at Deep-Sea News got a little busy this past week "laying down the hardwood." He claims this involved flooring installation...

Thus I have taken on the reigns of presenting this week's Great Darwin Beard Challenge images.

For those of you new here (and I know there are several due to my Science Blogging: The Future of Science Communication & Why You Should be a Part of it), check out the links at the bottom for previous installments. The short of it: from Darwin's birthday in February to the anniversary of the Origin of Species in October, we are competing for the title of "Most Darwinesque Beard."

Each week, we generally have some theme for the images, mainly just to keep ourselves entertained and distract us from the itchiness and rejections from our significant others.

Kevin's instructions this week were to take "mugshots. Try to look as criminally insane as possible."

Great Darwin Beard Challenge - Week 4

Participants: Andrew, the Southern Fried Scientist of Southern Fried Science, Kevin of Deep-Sea News and The Other 95%, Me, David "WhySharksMatter" also of Southern Fried Science, and David2 marine graduate student without a blog.

Personally, I think that I win the "criminally insane" look. David1 definitely has the "mentally challenged" look going for him. Andrew just looks guilty and perhaps drugged. Kevin and David2 both have the "yeah - I did it - whatcha gonna do about it" look.

Next week will be hosted by David at Southern Fried Science. Thereafter, we will be moving to biweekly updates of the contest. Technically, we are in Week 5 right now - these images are from last week.

  1. I would say yours is more of the methed out look… though you’re spot on with David1 – LOL. Those are priceless! Looks like the competition’s evened out a bit to me. I’d say you’re all pretty close now.

  2. yeesh! you guys look like the bizarro backstreet boys…

  3. Daniel, you have an alarming “There’s Something About Mary” look to you. Your readers might appreciate an explanation…

  4. Daniel, you definitely win on looking the most “criminally insane” for this. Love the hair! And will somebody PLEASE get David2 a blog? “Marine graduate student without a blog” just sounds so sad.
