Any intelligent lifeform must display low population, good societal coordination, and utter selfishness. The human being fulfils only the last one, while its distant cousin, the Orangutan, shows all of them. Therefore, it is now safe to assume that intelligent life does exist on earth.
Monty Python once said, “... pray that there’s intelligent life somewhere up in space, because there's bugger all down here on earth.” This has now been proved untrue.
“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day, but teach him how to fish, and you feed him for the rest of his life.”
Terry Pratchett (in Jingo):
“Give a man a fire and he’s warm for a day, but set fire to him and he’s warm for the rest of his life.”
I’ve got many other versions off the net. If you want, I’ll put them up here.
PS: This is actually yesterday’s post, but I couldn’t post it because Blogger.com was down for some time.
