Paul, I really think it's time for you to check out alt.peeves - I'm
crossposting the article there because Geoff would never forgive me if
he found out I didn't.

P.S: I've started a collection of AutoDarwinisation incidents. I'll also
accept miracle escapes where it's clear that Father Darwin was asleep at
his post. If anyone comes across these in newspapers or whatever I'd be
grateful for the article and attributions.
