    What’s up with Evolution? It’s always the same; change this, change that, nothing but change. You’d think that after 4 billion years, Evolution would come up with something new. How about No Change for a change?

    Even TalkBass threads evolve. Someone posts something, then everyone else posts their take on the subject, and before you know it, it’s a completely different thread. I know some of you think these thread are amusing, but we’ve got to change evolution to do something new.

    I’m open to suggestions, as long as it doesn’t involve change.

    How about tacos? I could have tacos every day.
  3. People who claim to know jackrabbits will tell you they are primarily motivated by Fear, Stupidity and Craziness. But I have spent enough time in jackrabbit country to know that most of them lead pretty dull lives; they are bored with their daily routines: eat, shag, sleep, hop around a bush now & then . . .No wonder some of them drift over the line into cheap thrills once in a while; there has to be a powerful adrenaline rush in crouching by the side of a road, waiting for the next set of headlights to come along, then streaking out of the bushes with split-second timing and making it across to the other side just inches in front of the speeding front wheels.

    Why not? Anything that gets the adrenaline moving like a 440 volt blast in a copper bathtub is good for the reflexes and keeps the veins free of cholesterol . .

    I definitely gave you a fifty. You’re supposed to give me a twenty, a ten, a five, three ones, a dime and three pennies. I don’t see what the problem is here.

    Four billion years ago, the first life forms on Earth evolved. They were primitive bacteria called prokaryotes and they subsisted on energy from underwater geothermal vents.

    They're still around today, virtually unchanged.

    Many other ancient organisms exist to the present day and evolution has kept them stable the entire time because they are successful as they are.
