I keep thinking of my checkbook registers...
Weirdly, I keep thinking of "the Evolution of the Mountain Bike"-- which would make a cool display, if someone has the bikes to do so. (Please, someone, steal this idea! It isn't likely I am going to be able to make it for 2009, either. Even if I do, the odds are even worse that I would have the resources to put together a display.)
Anyway, the reason I think of mountain bikes is I once made a comment about the evolution of mountain bikes to a co-worker who turned out to be a died in the wool Creationist (yes, the "C" was intentional), who lectured me on how that usage of "evolution" was incorrect because "evolution means random
!" Since his church had told him so, he was, obviously, correct...
I finally told him that, since mountain bikes developed by kids replacing parts with whatever they had, until the found something which worked/survived, evolution was, in fact the correct term!
Anyway, sorry for rambling. Maybe I forgot my meds this morning....
