    Seems straightforward. The first creatures to crawl out of the sea onto land had no reason to do so, until that one day he wanted to join the volleyball game. OR maybe he wanted to watch.

    What’s more surprising, isn’t it against the usual literalist/ creationist message in Hart’s work? Or do his successors not follow it?

    Is the Wizard tag correct? Looks more appropriate for B.C.

    Pete, I think you have things backwards.

    They’re back in the sea, and the one who crawled onto land looks

    So, he crawled out, found a volleyball tournament, and somehow
    that was enough to discourage him and he went back into the sea.

    The question, in my mind, is why was that so horrible?

    Desire to avoid being stepped on by all the humans churning up the sand.

    He doesn’t want to have to deal with crowds and parking.

    Volleyball was so disappointing compared to what he imagined it would be like out there on land.

    @ 3 & 4:
    Now I understand. He could wait 500 generations, but he couldn’t
    try again 500 feet away.

    Frank — more precisely, the species Frank represents — spends 500 generations evolving to the point where they can walk on dry land, and begin their further evolution to human beings. But it turns out somebody beat them by a few millennia.

    It’s like mountain climbers discovering the peak not only has other flags, but a Starbucks.

    DVD #3 has it, I think. The volleyball players’ feet are pretty scary to a small creature crawling uncertainly on the sand. Best to wait until the beach is clear.
