I am so beatdown exhausted right now that I read the first line as: When a couple visit a resort and zoo with their ANCIENT TODDLER...

And it sounded super cool! Your actual idea sounds wonderful, too. I do hope you post it.

Social circumstance and clumsiness have prevented the young Charles Darwin from pursuing his dreams.
But tonight, humanity's 
future will be inspired by its past.

I'm really looking forward to reading all these. Kudos to everyone who's managed to work around the 'accident prone' prompt to deliver something 'straight'. I just couldn't!

These all sound terrific! I made it a personal goal not to make this comedy as it seemed that's exactly what the prompts wanted, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna conform :D
