depinde de context...

Fosilele din justitie sunt ca telefonul fix al bunicii, ala vechi cu rotita, in fata unui smartphone cu touchscreen, precum magistratii de 24 ani. Mai sunt si cativa tineri cu bube in cap si nu trebuie generalizat, dar ca aceste fosile care nu au cunoscut in viata lor corectitudinea si au luat in "experienta lor de viata" mai multe plicuri decat a expediat posta romana.
