    That's remarkably close to the reality of my existence, today. Too much fibre. :?

    I'm inclined to agree with the Perdix not fitting in Linnaean Taxonomy theory. It's highly likely that he transcends conventional definition. We might be doing him a great dis-service by trying to pidgeon hole his mercurial mind, when he can feasibly be by turns benthic, littoral, natatorial, nautical or aeronautical as the mood takes him, what to speak of the soaringly cirro-cumularical or the world-embracing astronautical.

    Maybe british thinkers are just too deep for me, though.

    I'm with you. I always thought Bentham's ideas were but a watered-down version of Pelagius.

    The only way we can be certain is by sequencing his DNA.

    Let's see, where did I put that needle?

    damn. so much for my theory.
    this definitely rules out mustela putorius furo.

    let's start over: we can probably take animalia / Eukarya and even chordata for granted.

    I suggest we rule out Urochordata and Chephalochordata as insulting. A being with enough brain to appreciate our outstanding talent has to have some proper place to store it, and therefore belong to the Craniata subphylum.

    Actually, I remember DCS complained about being bitten. This would indicate Gnathostomata as a possible working theory. Hyperotreti and Cephalaspidomorphi aren't very likely anyway.

    mmm. We need more evidence. and we have to consider the possiblity of Perdix not fitting in Linnaean Taxonomy at all.
    I'd like to have our expert's opinion.
    Er, no wait. Our expert is him :lol:

    Or perhaps it was Jansen Cornelius... J. Cornelius... Hmm.

    Silly boys. The reference is to Cornelius Jansen, who strongly urges that Prototype X return to the literary principles laid down by St. Augustine of Hippo.

    Buncha bleedin' Pelagians all!

    You guys need to get out more.

    Among engineering types, in such cases, I suggest they've spent too many quiet evenings at home with their C compiler.
