tornado drill darwinism

Rainy weather over eastern Denver brought a tornado warning with it this evening while I was working.
So, myself and about 30 other employees who work "non-conventional" shifts huddled in a back hallway and made small talk for about a half-hour until the "all clear" was given in a rather bored sounding voice by the facilities person on staff. We could hear the thunder and feel it shake the building from time to time.
It was interesting to hear how many people, despite the fact that there could have been an actual tornado on our doorstep, wanted to go outside to "check it out"...including myself.
I guess if we 30 people would have been in the gene pool back at the dawn of time, we would not have lived long enough to send our stupidly curious genes down thru the ages.

Without curiousity genes we wouldn't have things like tapioca or milk or or other cool freaky things like cashews.

So it sort of balances out.
