A Butterfly flapped it’s wings…

The butterfly effect is a metaphor that simply states that small differences in the initial condition of a dynamical system may produce large variations in the long term behavior of the system. The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale alterations of events like a domino effect. Had the butterfly not flapped its wings, the trajectory of the system might have been vastly different. (Thank you Wikipedia).

I have children.  SIX of them.  Then there are cousins that come over and friends etc.  So there are few things that startle me these days.  HOWEVER, I was walking to the office to start my day when I stepped on a small plastic thingy.  When I first picked it up I thought it was a button, but the back had two little posts on it and then written across the front it said, “DO NOT REMOVE”.  ummm, well, uh oh.  I have NO idea what this came from, but it’s got to be bad. *flap, flap, flap*

    Well, at first glance, it looks like a button for pants – though not sure why it’d say “do not remove” (unless the manufacturer is warning you of a possibility for pants falling down upon removal?). But the sci-fi geek in me thinks it may be a special plug for a button-sized worm-hole that links our world to another dimension. Kind of like a man-hole cover.
