As this doesn't apply to most humans, I assume they aren't very wise. Maybe Desmond Morris had it about right with his 'naked ape', except that I can't see gorillas or chimps threatening the planet somehow! Maybe the naked moron, would be better? :wink:

Sometimes I reference books just because I've enjoyed reading them, and think others might too.
