Appendicitis

My 7yr daughter asked me what the appendix is.

I explained that it was a vestigial structure, ie something that, while once functional, over time had lost that functionality and now exists only in a degenerate condition - often actually detrimental to its host.

Bless her little heart, her response:

Like delegation or user-provided identifiers in OpenID?

Did you tell her about Dinosaurs?
Let's see if she can pick the right protocol / profiles?
