    Well, there was the thing before a fish that laid an egg that the first thing we recognise as a fish emerged from. Ergo - egg.

    Keeping up with the evolution theme.

    Mammal life forms pre-date flowers and flowering trees (fruit too and possibly seeds maybe?)

    Before that, plants were all a bit crap and samey due to lack of ability to cross-reproduce.

    Yup, grass is a flowering plant

    I wish we had a mind blown emote on these forums for sincere posts like these and probably more for the much more common sarcastic GD posts.

    And most define (especially ones you see outside of hospitals) will only shock if they detect the specific types of irregular rhythm they can be used to treat. They won't work on a dead person for example, or someone with abnormal heart rhythm.

    And if you open your mouth a little you can hum for as long as you want.

    There isn't a formal metric version for the word "mileage".

    Doesn't work in windows 8 so couldn't figure out what that did. Haven't used that in years.
