"The Americans keep telling us how successful their system is. Then they remind us not to stray too far from our hotel at night." - An un-named EU trade representative quoted during international trade talks in Denver, Colorado, 1997.

Whoops! Apocalypse! Episode no. 3,421,867

Sometimes, between reports like this and the whole bees thing and every other environmental catastrophe-in-the-making, Information Landmine gets the impression that humanity is playing a giant version of one of those children's games where objects are stacked precariously on top of one another until eventually collapsing in a heap. Only with this game, the future of life on Earth is what's at stake.

Well, as Blue Öyster Cult once sang in an appropriately sage-like fashion: "History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of men."

They need hardly have added the "Godzilla!" bit afterwards.
