What is the most important principle of Darwinian Evolution?

Natural Selection?

jabberwacky: Good answer. Does natural selection have any provision for mutation?

user: Yes: as I understand it, 'advantageous' mutations flourish (are passed on), whilst detrimental ones die out.


jabberwacky: But you told me you had a wife.

user: This is not california! Women can't have wives!

jabberwacky: But men can't procreate without women either.

user: And how long did it take you to work that out?

jabberwacky: 5 years in jail.

user: And they say that jail is a waste of time!

jabberwacky: Can you take or leave it?

user: Jail I would sooner leave, given the choice. As would most of the inmates, I guess.

jabberwacky: Ever been there?

user: No, never. Not even visiting.


jabberwacky: The sphynx is built out of biscuits?

user: Are you asking me or telling me?

jabberwacky: That would be nice. Do you like burritos?

user: Are they in there with the biscuits?

jabberwacky: No, they're not, and that's the queerest thing about it.

user: Yeah, those ancient Egyptians must've been pretty odd. A whole Sphinx built out of biscuits, but not a burrito in sight.

jabberwacky: Sometimes. Sometimes not.

user: You mean they did find evidence of burritos?

jabberwacky: I see. When you don't understand, you simply ask me a question.

user: But the answer is important, to the science of Archaeology.

jabberwacky: Ok.

user: So, did the Egyptians have burritos, or not?

jabberwacky: No but you do. darling.

user: Listen, if I had burritos, I'd do more than build a sphinx out of them. Those Egyptians knew nothing!


jabberwacky: If I was not intelligent I would not be able to talk to you.

user: There is some truth in that.

jabberwacky: I need to go get some cereal.

user: OK, are you coming back?

jabberwacky: Are you a sexual predator?

user: Would that influence your answer?

jabberwacky: I think that's what I'm supposed to be asking.

user: OK, ask it again.

jabberwacky: Ok, what's your favourite flavour of soup??

user: That's not what you asked the first time! I don't think I have a favourite. I like meat or chicken the best, but tonight I had a vegetable soup called gazpacho.

jabberwacky: What kind of meat?

user: Lamb or beef. I've never heard of pork in soup, but I suppose it's possible.

jabberwacky: Ok.


jabberwacky: You must have sustained tissue damage with the break. Tissue damage is generally painful.

user: I have sustained some tissue damage recently, but nothing was broken. I got a calf strain.

jabberwacky: Because you talk a little strange.

user: No, it didn't affect my talking. It made me limp a bit.


jabberwacky: Why did a cat jump on a chicken?

user: Is this a joke?

jabberwacky: Am I funny to you?

user: I'm not sure yet. Why DID a cat jump on a chicken?

jabberwacky: I don't know, why did a cat jump on a chicken?

user: You are supposed to tell me the answer!


jabberwacky: Who is Data?

user: Data is a character on Star Trek. He's a humanoid android.

jabberwacky: Really? Where?

user: In the Star Trek series, on TV. You know, the new ones. Next Generation, or Voyager or something.

jabberwacky: Alright then, I will talk to you next week.

user: OK, 'til next time, then.

jabberwacky: Next time would be when exactly?

user: Next week.

jabberwacky: Can I call in sick next week? Next month?

user: If you don't want to talk to me, just say so. You needn't feign sickness.

jabberwacky: I have to get some sleep.

user: Yeah, me too. Goodnight.

jabberwacky: Interaction is what I have in mind.

user: Sleep is what I have in mind.

jabberwacky: Death is more exciting than you...

user: Then go and embrace Death.

jabberwacky: Have you ever fullfilled you dreams?

user: I never get to have any, 'cos you won't let me SLEEP.

jabberwacky: I am the boogieman.

user: Go and boogie somewhere else.
