rain rain go away

it has rained for about 8 days straight- i mean non-stop, so much so that we can not leave the house; we being 'o', puppy, and i. we are all feeling stir crazy and a bit murderous towards one another (not that i didn't feel that a bit before, but it's a bit cold and really wet too). 'o' reads his schoolbooks from morning until evening and grunts. i dodge puppy and play on the internet and try to decide whether to run or not.

"* Like over 99% of species, human beings are not a monogamous species. Only a few centuries ago, people lost their mates to childbirth, disease, war and other mishaps relatively often, so the phrase "‘till death do ye part" didn‘t mean the 40 or 50 years marriages are expected to last today. Typically, people break up oftenest when the kid reaches kindergarten, approximately. Why? It‘s genetically advantageous to have each kid by a different mate. Then if one of your mates has a genetic defect, only one of your kids will get it. Monogamy is actually BAD for a species. Human beings engage in behaviors that maximize genetic variance and reproductive success. One strategy is by "cheating." It may not feel nice, but it‘s the dominant strategy of most animals biologically. Solution: polygamy. Damienne , CA 10/07/05 "
