The way it's going, people are killing the planet and all its creatures. We do need intervention of some kind.

Yeah, WTF 'Supreme Being' - nice job creating a species in your own image to completely arse things up for all the other ones.

Well, we don't, of course. But to quote Blackadder:

"Well, I use the word man in an as broad as possible sense because we all know God made man in his own image. It would be a sad look out for Christians around the globe if God looked any like you, Baldrick."

I always like to cheer myself up by reminding myself that no matter how shite it might seem to be at any given moment, I was lucky enough to be alive during a time where Douglas Adams was writing books, and for a moment, however brief, everything seems like it's going to be OK.
