Mother nature

The human race becomes complacent about how we can change the world by violence or control of its resources. Then Mother nature reminds us that we are not omnipotent after all (events in "Ring of Fire") 
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Mother nature

George Carlin explains it quite well albeit with fruity language.
As he suggests we are just a minor irritation in the planet's long history and whatever we do will make no real difference in the long term.
If things get too bad, global warming for example, the planet with simply eradicate the source of the problem...us, and rebalance it's systems.

Re: Mother nature

Quite right Strat. Archaeologists and anthropologists tell us would have us believe that if the age of the Earth were compared to one year in time, then the human animal started to evolve on 30th December at 23:59. The age of dinosaurs has by modern estimates been the most successful species yet known lasting millions of years, wiped out by a catastrophe not through natural evolvement. Humans haven't yet begun to scratch the surface of longevity yet.

Re: Mother nature

There are people who believe nothing unless they can detect it by one or more of their senses.
There has to be a name for people such as this. Wink

Re: Mother nature

Nah! - the only thing which is brown and drinkable up there is the river  Crazy ever since Heineken bought the brewery  Sad
Now the one from the Weir aka Sunderland was Vaux Breweries and that was a great pint until the greedy owners took the advice of a Corporate Advisor - spit - and closed the breweries down.
