Kitchen Junk Drawer

 The kitchen junk drawer is largely responsible for domesticating wild rice.  That DNA is not useless.  It is there in case a species suddenly needs to do something different.  Then evolution reaches into the kitchen junk drawer and searches for a solution. Usually it finds one.  This is a LOT faster than waiting for random mutations to offer something brand-new.
