    Rat isn’t worried; he’s a good swimmer.

    Somebody give him directions to Diogenes’ place. I would but I am a bit too cynical to think it will do any good.

    My partial list of things that Noah should have left off the ark starts with mosquitoes and wasps. How about yours?

    I thought Noah was going to get Pig as one of the two pigs he would bring on the ark.

    Noah going through each promising-looking neighborhood, asking around…“You know, sometime within the next 1,000 years or so, we are going to, probably, have another Flood! I mean, the way Sea Level has been rising, lately. So. Want to come on board my Arc?”Or, words to that general effect…So. Do you want to get on board? Well, as for me, personally: I think I’ll pass.

    True; why doesn’t NOAA stick with the same data sets forever? It’s not like we can ever learn anything more, or that scientific knowledge isn’t frozen in time. After all, one guy in the ’70s said we might be headed for an ice age. He must have been right. Right?

    Technically this is an ice age right now (see “Quaternary glaciation”), and has been for the past 2.5 million years. Currently we’re in an interglacial period which should last for another 50,000 to 200,000 years by the looks of things, unless we change the environment too much…which we may have already done.

    Depressing, eh, Pig? Well, just remember, there’s a calm before the storm and a lot of rain in every big, dark cloud….

    Thanks, Pastis, for a comedic revisiting of an old fairy tale! Do some Aesop’s for us. Rat would be a natural.
