Does something plug into the ends? Looks like some kind of hub, like for headphone jacks or musical instruments.
it is a splitter so your friends can listen to the same music over headphones
we are not evolved from monkeys. monkeys are a different branch. we are evolved from apes in the sense that we are ourselves apes. also it doesnt make sense that if we evolved from something that that thing would no longer exist. your existence doesnt mean your sister doesnt exist does it? she might evolve a whole different tree and be a mutant and whatever, while you and youe descendants stay quite similar to your mother, perhaps because she moves to different region and faces different forces that reward particular adaptations. your quote indicates many level of terrible misunderstanding.
martin is correct, Steve is misinformed. We didn't evolve from monkeys. Humans are apes ourselves and we share 98.4% of our genes with Chimpanzees. Humans split from the Chimpanzees about 2 million years ago and the Gorillas split off about 6 million years ago. The Orangutans before that and the monkeys even earlier from a common simian ancestor that no longer exists. Chimps and Gorillas are far more closely related to Humans than to Orangutans.
The savanna apes developed dexterous fingers from being bipedal and big brains from their omnivorous diet. They advanced far beyond the jungle chimps and rain forest gorillas who evolved to best suit those environments. Humans advanced even further to the point of being able to shape his own environment.

I should use "can atheists take out insurance against acts of God ??" instead.

I didn't even think it was serious...I got it from an e-mail someone sent me with some gems like...

One nice thing about egotists is that they don't talk about other people.

I'm still trying to find Red's phylogenetic chart in Wikipedia....
I swear....I'm still amused that anyone reads my sig. I'll change it with the next avatar change.
