Quote of the day

Well, of a few days ago - and a great neologism to boot: "de-evolution". From the impeccable Zombie:

Living in the trees, throwing feces at predators, howling in fear — was I witnessing de-evolution in action? Could humankind return to the trees?

It's quite a palaeo-neologism. I think you will find that in the late 1970s, the group "Devo" defined themselves as the de-evolution band. I refer you to their seminal work "Jocko Homo".

Andew, that is a quite superb comment, in so many ways.
