Sunil, the one persion inquisition

Hmmm, maybe I need to explain that. Sunil is the source of an endless stream of questions. Many of them are real "thinkers". He's also learned that more of his questions get answers if he paces himself.

Over lunch today he asked me "when was there the first Oak tree?"

I said that I had no idea. But, you know me, I can't leave something like that just sitting there. Five minutes of Googling around ("quercus paleobotany") got me the answer. Sixty five million years. That's a lot of acorns.
