I have always found it curious that we animals did not develop the same improvement with respect to the respiratory system. How much more efficient to have one nose to breathe in & one (connected to the mouth) to breath out, with continuous peristalsis in between! Singing would be a lot simpler, too.

Cheers Jack, a fassinating article which so many of us non 'MOAB elite' mudcatters
would otherwise have been completely unaware of...

Bowel conditions are a serious topic of open down to earth discussion in my family...

That's a seriously good article; thinking of subscribing to The Atlantic for this and some of their wide ranging world political articles.

Puts me in mind of a couple of other evolutionary items: The incredible oxygenation achievements of birds in their modifications of lungs and airsacks to enable the metabolic energy they require to execute flight, presumably also a feature of dinosaur evolution since it is the current wisdom that birds are the current examples;
Also, the quite natural question as to where and how did the anus evolve? There has long been the anti-evolution argument that the eye coujld not evolve but had to be designed since so many disparate elements had to exist and work together to get the funtionality we now perceive in optical organs. A quirky movie with that as a plot element came out a few years ago: "I Origins".

Meanwhile, there have been serious articles out on the ability of the lower digestive tract to absorb oxygen and that this could actually feature in medical treatments when the lungs are compromised.

The "Intelligent Design" argument about the eye was long ago debunked. I think those who subscribe to it have largely stopped using the "What use is half an eye?" line of argument because it's so obviously a dumb question. Our eyes didn't evolve from half an eye; they evolved from less efficient, less sensitive eyes.

Scientists ran a mathematical model back in 1994. If you start with a light-sensing surface, allow it to change in small, random, biologically feasible way, and only retain those changes that make it more sensitive you get to a recognisable eyeball WITH a lens in about 400,000 generations. Which is (aha-aha) an evolutionary eye-blink!

Fortuitously I am reading a recent copy of the New Scientist and "News in Brief" there is a samll article on"Life Saving oxygen could be given anally" - stop yer imagination - it is delivered in a liquid.

Tests in pigs prove it works to a degree. And for patients needing oxygen in COVID it could be preferable to respirators because the patient has to be sedated. Except that diarrhoea is also a symptom. But..........

I think H.G. Wells wrote a short story where a man exploring in the hinterlands discovers a valley where the people have no sight. He fancies he will do quite well for himself...

And yet he doesn't!

There have been cases where creatures have had eyes in ancestral generations and yet their species has lost the use of sight either because it does no good or because other senses have proven more valuable, or both

In the case of the movie "I Origins" the scientist characters are looking for a 'first cause' genetic mutation. But did I say the movie was a work of art (and an offbeat love story)?

i would nominate Martin Amis, a writer who uses delightful language but takes a long time to say anything meaningful or anything at all.
martin amis the prince of waffle, a writer who suffers from literary constipation, is perfect to write on the subject"in the country of the constipated the man with an arsehole is king"

And in hopes of this working** - see Bully Hole Bottom, with an estate agent (realtor) in the background worth look into (if you see what I mean).

And back to topic here's my "pome" on the UK

"The map of Brittain shows - agog,
An outline somewhat like a dog.
Provincial wits, convulse in fits,
To see at last where Lundun sits"

Bristol is about knee-high.
