    An Excerpt From Riverrats Rant

    The Buffalo Theory Described by Riverrat

    "Well you see, Guys, it's like this . . A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the heard is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.
    In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we all know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of mead eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, fellas, is why you always feel smarter after a few glasses of mead."

    It's called a "Clavinism". Cliff Clavin from Cheers made many such explanations of deep philosophical thought, in this case he was astoundingly accurate.

    This is also why you don't see many buffalo any more, They were not hunted neigh unto extinction as the history books would have you believe, they are all just to fast to see. There are a few throwback slowpoke herds kept for display purposes.

    You will starve, but the good news is that only your slow kids will too. The faster ones will still catch deer.
