Evolution is a harsh reality of technology. There are some concepts and technologies, though, which have outlived their usefulness years ago, and should probably be extinct but refuse to die.

Although fewer species of animal have died out, their rate of decline is even faster — at least 1, times faster than background rates of extinction, underlining the impact humans are having on life on our planet. The highest rates of plant extinction are found on islands in the tropics and in areas with a Mediterranean climate, researchers found. These typically biodiverse regions are home to many unique species, but they have been particularly vulnerable to human activities. Woody plant species such as trees and shrubs, which inhabit a small geographical range, such as those confined to small islands, were among the most likely to be reported extinct.

And that was when I wondered: has anyone under 30 ever worn a pair of tan pantyhose to work without their mum telling them to?
