  • Summer Science Quiz #2

    Dear all,

    My little quiz seems to have proven very popular. So, since it's Summer
    (at least in the Northern hemisphere), when academics languish like
    chimnies, here's another...

    This one is from none other than Aristotle himself, who in 350 BC asked
    the following question in his "On the Gait of Animals" <
    http://classics.mit.edu/Aristotle/gait_anim.html >

    "Why do all animals have an even number of feet?", or in other words,
    why are there no three-legged animals, for example?

    Unlike the previous question, this one has no solution (apart from
    Aristotle's, which I find personally rather dissatisfying).
