The legendary naturalist who studied finches, travelled the world over, probably ate some giant tortises and the humbe office chair.

Often broken in some way but pushed on as a borderline cripple rather than fixed or replaced. Jeez they have a hard time.

Don't know what Darwin's cabin was like on that ship he sailed, that could've been a hard time to. I bet he didn't have someone sitting on him though!
