"A gasolina poderá aumentar 1 cêntimo num só dia", ouvi há pouco na SIC Notícias.
Poderá? Fá-lo-á? Sim, não? Todos os dias, uma vez por semana, todos os seis meses?
Ao que percebi é um título do Correio da Manhã (pois...).
"In North America the black bear was seen by [Samuel] Hearne swimming for hours with
widely open mouth, thus catching, like a whale, insects in the water. Even in so extreme
a case as this, if the supply of insects were constant, and if better adapted competitors
did not already exist in the country, I can see no difficulty in a race of bears being
rendered, by natural selection, more and more aquatic in their structure and habits,
with larger and larger mouths, till a creature was produced as monstrous as a whale."
Darwin, Charles; "The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection" (On the origin and
transitions of organic beings with peculiar habits and structure)
