      Stability! One of the weirdest things about me is that I’ve not changed my appearance in hundreds of millions of years. Everything else is busy evolving away- I just sit there. That is the reason I should be sequenced.
      An odd evolutionary advantage I think you’ll agree, the ability to do nothing.
