Holy Giant Douchebag of the Day: So Lil’ Wayne is suing Quincy Jones III for unauthorized use of his music — blah, blah, who cares, right?

“Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science, in all of biology. It’s like, it’s very much analogous to trying to do geology without believing in tectonic plates. You’re just not going to get the right answer. Your whole world is just going to be a mystery instead of an exciting place.”
“I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world — in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe — that’s fine, but don’t make your kids do it because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can—we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems.”
