drat, your office is really out of date. MS DONG is almost 40 years old now.



I don't remember Clippy being that well-endowed.



Is that the newest update for Windows 10der?



I heard they got rid of the Start menu. Is the new foreplay menu that much better?

My favorite thing about the Cambrian explosion is that we have fossils from before it and we basically have no idea what they represent. Aspidella could be anything, for instance.

Sure, they're visually impressive, but a lot of posters find large avatars physically uncomfortable. Furthermore, the owners of large avatars often rely on their size alone and don't bother to develop more refined posting techniques.

There's been a lot of them, there were at least four major extinction events during the Cambrian era alone.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_extinction_events

Also since the sudden massive acceleration in the diversification of lifeforms at the time was called The Cambrian Explosion I've always argued that the mass extinctions events should have been called The Cambrian Implosions 1 Through 4 ...... but no one ever listens to me ....

Apparently humanity saw that we only contributed to the Quaternary extinction and took it as a challenge.

You could be super lucky and go back to one of those times* when oxygen concentration in the atmosphere was at levels low enough to be insufficient or high enough to be toxic to humans and just die, so eating wouldn't be a problem.

I wonder if if the levels would be great for a modern human even 100,000 years ago (not sure where to start looking that up).

"Cenozoic era atmospheric oxygen concentrations" is a search term that might start you off. The Cenozoic period is the last 66 million years. Quick googling tells me that at least for the last ~40 million years it's been within a percent of what it is now.

40 million years is <1% of geological time. Basically any time more than 500 million years ago there was less than 15% atmospheric oxygen, and any time more than 1.2 billion years ago, there was less than 1%.
