"Then it is dark; a night where kings in golden suits ride elephants over the mountains." - John Cheever
Ah the unrelenting optimism of Fitzrovian Tuesdays!
Yes, very good piece. As the article itself concludes, imagining a flourish post-human earth is both a humbling and slightly comforting prospect. I'm coming round to the (admittedly philosophically problematic) notion that maybe things would be better without us.
John, if you want a break from our misanthropy, watch the South Park World of Warcraft episode. It's on You Tube. You might have to search for it a bit - the full episode is in 3 parts, each about 7 minutes long (as opposed to clips and trailers).
Can be found here
Aaargh - i don't think i can get away with watching this at work - hope it doesn't get pulled before I can get home and stream it there. Superb change of thread direction btw :-D
