Having rather a lot on his hands at the time, the Supreme Being decided to sub-contract the job of human evolution to GALCORPS of the Plant Maltron II.

Well, it was the sixth day and getting towards closing time at the Drog and Pallette Ale House, so the contractors decided to celebrate with a few pints of Thargsberg Special Brew.

The following morning they turned up for work in, let's say, an unwell state. Their work obviously suffers, and as a result the Scroll containing the plan for Evolution of human life on Earth is scattered to the four winds.

So, 42 billion years later (Could this be relevant?) whilst exploring the confines of an empty beer bottle, our hero GLOB found himself transported to the presence of the Supreme Being.

"GLOB," said the Mighty One. "I have chosen you to search human memory for the Scroll of Evolution."

"Why me?" said GLOB glumly!

Find the pieces and reassemble them the Scroll using a sliding block method.
