Further to my last post, my wife has alerted me to a number of stories which show that maybe evolution is taking a lot longer than we think. Evolving intelligence, anyway.

Three basic rules for all would be thieves:

1. A lesson from Santa: if you’re going to use the chimney, make sure it’s big enough.

2. If you’re going to climb in through a hole, keep your trousers on.

3. In this age of CCTV, it’s probably not a good idea to have your name and date of birth tattooed on your neck.
