This thread took root from a quote I posted. I take responsibility for this.
Sometimes, as in the nature of lists like this, off shoot topics that
originally had root in being related to the relative nature of the list, in
this case, native fishes, sprout up. I don't mind some thought provoking
philosophy as such now and then, as I feel it is good to exchange ideas and
work the brain out, but when it gets carried away to the point that we are
totally out of the stream, I would have to agree with Bruce. Sorry for
posting it in the first place. I'll keep it "light and fluffy" from now on.
