Re: What happened?
I was sitting thinking about whether progress had been made, and for some reason my thoughts went to Darwin, dinosaurs and what happens when your off-spring looks different from you. Darwin had theories on evolution. Dinosaurs didn't - and look what happened to them and just imagine what Mr and Mr Neanderthal and their social circle would have said if their son/daugther one day in the supermarket managed to reach the top shelf without trouble? - they would have been horrified of such a strange creature.:>) You can read into this what you want, but yes I think progress was made - enough so we won't become extinct this ice-age, but not enough to reach the top shelf of the supermarket yet. Pia Who still wants people out there to acknowledge the HQ members, by letting them have a say. and whose brain has been on standstill since Sunday and whose backside is now just about alive again. :>) ----- Original Message ----- From: Stewart Cunningham <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Tuesday, November 06, 2001 3:20 AM Subject: Re: What happened? > Someone asked me whether progress had been made.
