Do you think in the early life of this planet, seeing one of these is what gave someone the idea for the chimney and then seven and a half million years later someone designed the first house to put it on. Perhaps the idea was passed down father to son for hundreds of thousands of years until someone invented paper then a few hundred thousand years after that someone invented a top drawer to keep the paper in, then when the first house was first built someone said "Hey wait a minute I'm sure I have something in grandpa's old drawer that might be useful here" and he ran down stairs because no one had thought of building above ground yet and brought out the old dusty drawing of a chimney that had obviously been altered many times in translation so that now it was a horizontal chimney which they installed into the first house and everybody died of carbon monoxide poisoning? 8-)
