There is a prototype for anything.

         Actually, I think you need to rephrase that. There certainly is a prototype for a lot of odd things, but hardly "anything." And I will repeat my own personal mantra, that it's wise to model the typical and the commonplace, and restrain your modeler's joy in modeling the weird, the rare, and the one-off. That is, of course, if you are seeking to model reality.
