    this is a stupid one. Extinction only relates to fossils when the life form (not the individual) that was the fossil no longer exists. So, the analogous puddle would be the remnant of a rainfall that no longer exists. There is no single word for "a rainstorm was here but is no longer here". Plus, puddles are not unique in time. You cannot tell the difference between a puddle from this storm and the puddle left over from that storm two weeks ago.

    Who asked this horrible word question? I'd give them a pile of crap. I am a pretty logical type of person, and this one throws me bat-crazy for its illogic.
