And so it begins...


Remember when you were a kid and your pet dog/cat went inexplicably berserk one summer evening, and then an earthquake came a few hours later? Animals' instincts are always amazingly accurate. And these instincts are apparently telling nearly every living mammal in southern Sudan to get the f**k out of there. The wildlife conservation society calls it the largest migration of mammals on earth (1.3 million of them, to be exact). Whether they're trying to escape decades of civil war, government-sponsored genocide, or the effects of climate change that threaten to turn most of Africa into an uninhabitable wasteland, we humans are almost certainly to blame. Now I say, just to make sure that none of these precious mammals go extinct, someone should build a boat, a really big one, and take two of each... oh, wait, I think someone's done that already. Well I certainly wouldn't want to step on anyone's toes by blogging about something that wasn't 100% my own original idea. Cause that's what these blogs are all about, right? Fresh ideas, never sourced from anywhere else but our fertile little (or big, rather) noggins. Sheesh.

No, no. As you were, soldier. Blogging about your favourite Bible story.

Totally scary. Like 25% of bees in the world suddenly disappearing in one year. Or a chunk of ice the size of California melting away suddenly.
