You are, quite definitely, a fish. Believe me!

This is a really good video explaining in no uncertain terms why we quite definitely evolved from other mammals (and by extrapolation, fish.) It's on YouTube but I don't know how to download it and stick it up on my blog, so I'm afraid all you get is a link. Don't be put off by the early stages, which do come across as a bit technical and nerdy. Once he gets into his stride and starts talking about an early rodent-like ancestor, it gets really simple and straightforward.

To copy a YouTube video into a blog post, check out the little "Embed" window just to the right of the video display (just below the matching "URL" window). Place your cursor in that Embed window, press Ctrl-A to highlight "all" of it followed by Ctrl-C to "copy" it. Switch to your Blogger window where you are editing your post, place your cursor where you want the video to appear, and press Ctrl-V to paste the embedding HTML code into your post. When you save your blog post, the video will now be embedded in your post and readers will be able to click on it and view the video without having to leave your blog.

Fantastic, Zeno, thank you. I was pretty sure there would be a simple way to do it, just couldn't figure it out for myself.
