@RobertPiano - Which means we are the mammalian komodo dragons who wound their prey and then follow it around and wait for it to be too weak to run away or defend itself.
I think it's funny how many of us seem to have vast stores of information like this. I have been accused of having a lot of useless information stuck in my head. It may seem useless to know a lot of things, but in many ways the knowledge is always relevant when looking a the bigger picture, and how things relate.
People look at me like I have two heads when I tell them why the orchids on their bureau have a lever on the flower, or that the red eft is the land phase of the spotted newt. That's one reason why I appreciate you folks so much - I feel like I am among kindred spirits - people who just seem to want to know whatever they can about a wide variety of things.
@Diane - I had a friend who used to marvel at the vast array of odd facts I carry around in my head (examples: dogs can see 3 times better at night than humans, cats 6 times; granite is radioactive and emits radiation and radon gas at sometimes alarmingly high levels; a sperm whale's blowhole is off-center). She asked me how I could explain knowing all these fact(oid)s and I said, "Well, Linda, while you're watching your sitcoms I'm watching the channels that run science and nature documentaries."
The un-one, that was an interesting retort
Diane you make a valid case.
There are things we know that to most don't seem to be useful but I think knowledge for its own sake is more than good enough
