    Yes, you can.

    You can fall. Or choke. Or make an error in the lyrics of a song such as saying 'London bridges falling down' rather than 'London Bridge is falling down'. (Sorry, Joe, but you yourself have given us an example that deflates your argument here.)

    The aleatory is, by definition, without specific cognitive plan, and is very, very, much a player in cultural evolution.

    But, perhaps you like being stuck up that gluey wicket.
