Researchers have found a new critter,
Selected because it was fitter.
Found in a jar,
Feasting on tar,
and thriving in its pile of litter.
. . . with the satisfied air of a man who thinks he has an idea of his own because he has commented on the idea of another . . . - Alexandre Dumas 'The Count of Monte Cristo"

There is no statement so absurd that it has not been uttered by some philosopher. - Cicero

Okay, once again I mention something whacky like "living pterasaurs" and the next day I find another example of it. Here's one of my favourite youtubers, Logicked, talking about the nutjob creationist John Morris Pendleton:

It's because we no longer have the [ytube] function.

I'll edit it to remove the offending function and it should become visible again.
