And the fastest organism on earth is...
We all know that poo can harbor some pretty funky microorganisms, but one you may not have heard of is the fungal genus Pilobolus, that's often found on herbivore excrement. These fungi shoot out their spores at speeds of up to 25 meters per second. While that might not sound hugely impressive, their acceleration is incredible as they can reach top speed in two millionths of a second. Check out this awesome video from Earth Unplugged of these fun...

Bragging rights
If you are alive today, it's because every single one of your diverse ancestors going back for ~3.8 billion years was able to survive & reproduce. That's alot of sex, carnage and continuous metabolism! The cosmic voyage of evolution truly makes us all partners in crime but the question is... What are we going to do about it?
