That is not hard to come up with. What's hard to come up with is a scenario where only one of all those different early life forms on this enormous planet of ours manages to prevail very very early in the history of said planet and bethe oldest ancestor of all life on Earth as we know it today.

Me too. It's just too much of a hassle to switch admin rights off. Maybe it's better now but knowing MS it will not have changed much since 2000 when I tried using my computer as a normal user. "You can only run that program in administrator mode," it would tell me, or it would just refuse to do the simplest things. I gave u in frustration. I do use my Mac as a normal user, which works fine. It only asks for administrator passwords when doing administrative things like installing programs and changing global settings.

Comment Walking simulators (Score 5, Interesting) 55

Thanks to my heart disorder I can't walk far and I can't run at all. Walking simulators like Obduction and the Myst games provide me with the chance to walk for a long time through beautiful environments while exploring them, without getting tired. It feels liberating. I don't like sports on TV or in games though because they bring up bad memories from my childhood.
