comment Why did the urinary bladder evolve?
Well a Naïve answer for a Naïve question: It's not very "convenient" to leak urine constantly and create a beautiful path leading directly to you when you have lots of predators around looking for you. It's very "convenient" to be able to mark your territory if you're a predator.

comment Why does human facial and head hair continue to grow?
Just want to point out that not everything can be explained in terms of advantage or disadvantage in evolution. Most of the characters are not directly selected or selected at all.

comment Why are the Galápagos islands so special?
I want to point out that Darwin did not notice about the finches as everybody thinks until the captain of the Beagle (Robert Fitz Roy) pointed that to him. Also it was after a lifetime of collecting evidences not only from his voyages but from experiments in his own house and contributions from colleagues that he developed his theories, many years after his voyages. Which doesn't diminish his contributions at all. He made one of the greatest contributions to biology and human knowledge in general ever.
