My point was that, in many, they do not function independently. The examples I gave were of functional tripods; in all cases the actual number of limbs was four.

      It would be very easy for Detroit to start manufacturing
    3-wheeled cars.. in fact cheaper than 4-wheeled cars.
    So, we are left with the question of why 99.9999% of cars
    have 4-wheels, not 3? This is the same question as why
    99.9999% of animals have (a minimum) of 4-legs and not 3?
      The answer is the same in both cases, and obviously has
    nothing to do with Natural Selection or Darwin. It has to
    do with the intrinsic "square" metrical property of space

      BTB, if you happen to run into any brilliant scientists
    who might be capable of discussing the above URL in your
    foreign travels, please ask them to perhaps venture to post
    to ASA concerning it.
