    Default Alphabetical : What's the point of.....?

    Not the usual A - Z thing, but for genuine comment....but alphabetically.

    What's the point of

    Aardvarks

    Would it matter if they became extinct? ...and if so, why?
    I do not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

    Well - we'd be overrun with ants for one thing - and they'd have to alter all the dictionaries !!

    What's the point of

    Bat wing jumpers/blouses ?

    Would you miss them if they stopped making them?

    Cousins. They don't really serve any purpose, and nobody even understands the whole 'twice removed' thing, let alone whether you're allowed to marry one. Would be better if they were just considered 'distant relatives', if that.

    I thought 'anteaters' ate ants....although Aardvarks eat termites....same kind of thing?

    Never liked them.....it was most uncomfortable to try to wear a coat over such sleeves.

    So 'goodbye Bat wing jumpers'

    'First' cousins are quite closely related, sharing one set of grandparents.

    You have always been allowed to marry a first cousin in this country.....not sure about other countries.

    Without them we would be overrun by gullible work-shy lefties.

    Dandelions

    But Dandelions are useful! Leaves - make tea or salad, roots - make coffee, flower heads - make salads and are anti-depressant. They are diuretic - should you have bladder problems and the flowers/clocks are pretty. No, Sphinx, we need dandelions.

    How about:-

    EGOCENTRICS - the 'look at me, aren't I wonderful' brigade !

    Blair, Bush, Trump, Corbyn, Katie Price, etc., etc.,

    It's risky. Look at this family tree:

    Ian and Neil don't know it but they are each childless because Leonard has been performing, er, duties on their behalf. Consequently Olly and Pamela believe they are first cousins so they marry, but they are in fact half-siblings. But it's worse than that... the offspring of half siblings would normally have six great-grandparents instead of the standard eight, but Quentin has only four because Olly and Pamela have the same grandparents which makes them, genetically, the equivalent of full siblings.
    And just to make this family a bit more interesting, Quentin's wife is also his aunt and their child can count to twenty four on his hands and feet.

    How do you size attachments so that they are big enough to see but don't fill the whole screen? Or to put it another way, how do you prevent it doing the "thumbnail" thing?
