Stream of thought (warning, choppy water)

Why do men have nipples? And for that matter - where along the evolutionary chain was it decided that five fingers was better than 2 or 7? Were there keyboard designers and piano players in the pre-historic era? I'm sure the thumb had a hand (ha!) in this.

What was pre-historic life like? Was it really like the opening scene in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey? That movie is incredible. Its special effects completely hold up, even today.

Odd how now that flat screen televisions are becoming popular, any movie made about the future and featuring CRT televisions has become instantly unbelievable.

Who picked the first brussel sprout and said, "hmm, let's force the kids to eat these."? I prefer Eblo to Blog. It sounds like a mix between an ancient tradition and a new Sesame Street character.

When ATMs were introduced, who started the "stay back a few paces when in line" thing? Did banks hand out little pamphlets that told people to stand back? Wouldn't a rule like that be helpful at the pharmacy?

Am I the only one that still stares at an airplane taking off in awe? It seems I am. Does it have something to do with the fact that 90% of my dreams involve a plane or an airport? I'm sure Freud would have something to say about that, but he's long dead.

Your Cheese: Would you rather have more fingers or less fingers? Whatever for?
