i started checking /. daily in 2000 i'd say and today i find myself tearing up. it's funny what sort of things will grow on you.
beyond even the aggregation and the editorials, the community here and the quality of the moderation have made it practically unique.
  Thank you.
  Now get outside and enjoy the wife and children.

Heck Cattle are the result of an attempt to breed back the aurochs from modern aurochs-derived cattle. For this reason, they are also known as "Reconstructed Aurochs".[1]

The reconstructed aurochs fitted into the Nazi propaganda drive to create an idyllic history of the Aryan Nation.[3][4]

I wouldn't claim that they have been completely successful, however this is a fairly interesting historical note.
