Anyways, as Merry and I were watching our nature documentary last night, we starting talking about which things will make it under survivial of the cutest and which won't. We came up with the following lists.
baby beluga whales
almost any baby animal
Ain't gonna make it:
bugs in general (with the exception of lady bugs)
most people (except, as noted above, babies)
The jury is still out on platypi (sorry Perry)
I think we're drawn to try and save cute animals because we know, deep in our hearts, that if things keep going the way they're going, eventually it will just be us and the cockroaches here on Earth fighting it out for the scraps left over after the boomers have ruined it all.
