“Upshot: you can’t save the human species. Indeed, the concept of humanity existing for even the paltry 135MYr of the dinosaurs is more than somewhat mind-boggling — there were thousands of species of dinosaurs, over a period a hundred times greater than the earthly duration of the hominins (who are on balance a spectacularly unsuccessful family of species — all but one of them are extinct!). In a mere hundred megayears we, too, will certainly be one with the oil shale.”

Microblogging: best thing to happen to the Internet since electronic bulletin boards. (This is the smartypants, no-impulse-control, squirrel-on-crystal-meth blog. Long-form wankery can be found over at Wordpress. Thanks for nothing, posterous.) GIF-free since a couple of minutes ago.
