I was at a pizza party with my friends the other day and got sucked into reading a copy of the Guardian newspaper they had laying around. There were two really interesting articles. One was on the preservation of the semi colon and the other was on the bald ibis. The bald ibis is an odd and interesting bird because it seems to have evolved badly. It has a great migratory instinct but no sense of direction. Every year it migrates but can't seem to find it's way. They are also easily distracted and may end up on a beach somewhere forgetting to complete thier migration. I'm sure all this is a great metaphor for something or other.
