The worst case scenario
Good point about the drift. Of course, that doesn't explain how you get fossilized fish on top of mountains, or wolly mammoths frozen solid, but that's another discussion entirely.
I won't continue the debate / argument further, but I would like to point out that having varied interests doesn't mean that you're automatically worthy of being ignored. It just means you're creative. I bet lots of Perlmonks have unusual interests; for instance, I'm a member of the International Jugglers Association.
