Question #4 is overly simplistic to the point of being idiotic.

Brian- I have come to expect more from you!
Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6123) 16 years ago
I had 30 seconds to reply to that post (just as I have about 25 seconds now). The question remains idiotic. Man did not descend from monkeys and apes. Man, monkeys and apes descended from a common ancestor. We're cousins - not father and child. His question was the same thing as asking, "If we've descended from our grandparents, why do we still have our grandparents?" It's idiotic.

And yet...

"26. If one synchronized swimmer drowns, do the rest drown, too?

27. If you ate both pasta and antipasto, would you still be hungry?
Seemed not ridiculous to you?

I think you need to digest the list in the manner it was meant to be consumed.

"If we've descended from our grandparents, why do we still have our grandparents?"

I think the term was "evolved". I'm not sure we evolved from our grandparents.
Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6123) 16 years ago
A person wouldn't evolve over two generations. The analogy is valid.
Posted by Chad Collins (+134) 16 years ago
What analogy is valid?
Posted by Big Dave (+438) 16 years ago
Uh Brian,

I don't find anything particularly intellectual about any of those questions - but sure found a chuckle or two. The term "lighten up" comes to mind.

I will make my own attempt to add to the idiocy.

If a man says something in the forest, and his wife is not there to hear him, is he still wrong?

Oh, there's the expected, my membership application to Mensa just burst into flames.

Happy Wednesday.
