    I think I've met a few humans over the years who could be classified as deutrostomes.

    In other news tonight, a man in an undisclosed location is in a pending lawsuit because apparently an outdoor garden of carnivorous plants consumed two neighbors dogs. We will keep you posted as we receive more information on this bizarre story..

    Dude, where have you been, that's very old news. That must have happened 3 or 4 years ago.

    Actually, all humans, and indeed all vertebrates, are deuterostomes, with the first opening in the embryo becoming the anus. Aside from echnioderms (starfish, crinoids, urchins and sea cucumbers) and a few poorly known phyla like the Chaetognatha, everything else is a protostome (arthropods, worms, mollusks, all that).

    Gotcha. There really is a word for everything I guess.

    Eh, who needs all these different levels of classification anyway... I say we just draw the line at that one and call it a day.

    Can this be combined with the Pluto thread? I sense a convergence.
