It's getting warm

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

We should be able to win the Cup before humans finish their first lap, eh?
You believe humans will complete a lap?
Global warming/cooling happens at a slow enough rate that we can adapt. Unless we do ourselves in first.
Mammals are usually good for a million years, a few rarely make 10 million.
Sure, but is your data relevant to the hypothesis? Do you expect humans to become extinct for similar reasons as other mammals.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Once you decide some people deserve being killed, it’s a slippery slope. Better not go there.

Probably not.

Sharks though.
If I’m not mistaken, sharks, crocs and turtles predate dinosaurs.
That’s pretty impressive.

Survival is random.

You've expanded the argument (widened the goalposts) from species to class. If you to phylum, all are present in the Burgess Shale.

Shark-like animals are on their 3rd lap, croc-like animals are nearing the 1/2 lap mark

Well, if you say humans have been onboard for 1/200th (or in the original post even 1/10th) of a lap, the goal posts were already pretty wide as that is a very broad definition of human. Homo Sapiens has only been around for like 200,000, or possibly 300,000 years, so more like 1/1000th of a lap. I think the oldest hominid remains found are like 2 or 3 million years old, and if you ask doc, he does not consider Lucy a human.
