Two quotes only

1/24/2009 -- Two quotes only

Today just two quotes.

· "I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I've realized that you are not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment. But you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague." (from "The Matrix")

And here's a fun one. Do you know the "Uncyclopedia"? A nice Saturday afternoon pastime. Here's a section from the article on "humans" (seems somebody took the Matrix quote as an "inspiration"):

· "Human beings are a disease of the species Homo sapiens, that means they are hairless monkeys. Unique among mammals, humans never reach a natural equilibrium with their environment. They spread to an area and they multiply and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. [...] Humans are thought to be almost certainly one of the least intelligent animal species." (Uncyclopedia 1/24/09)

That's meant to be satirical.
I admit I took out a section ("[...]") which distorts the original context a bit. Pardon me.
