Severe pain is not usually considered a deadly or fatal condition. I mean, exaggeration is fun, but really. PoorEd 16:12, 13 March 2008 (EDT)

Oh, come on. The platypus is God's practical joke on the evolutionists, since craetinoism is true. Sterile lens cap 22:48, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Evolutionary screw-up[edit]

Does anyone have any reasonable theory of how the hell this thing could have evolved? Note that I'm not doubting it did evolve, I'm just trying to figure out what possible enviroment could have selected for that incredably bizarre set of attributes. Venom, electrolocation, ten sex chromosomes, two genes previously only found in birds, amphibians and fish? Oh, and according to Wiki, it's genome sequence includes both mammalian and reptilian elements and no-one knows how sex determination is made since it lacks the SRY gene. Is this thing a Tyranid scout form or something? - Ebon (talk) 11:46, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Proof that God has a sense of humor[edit]

Were He to exist, of course. Was this a Douglas Adam's quote? Might be a good strikethrough. --Sethpeck (talk) 21:52, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
