    When I hear that phrase, I reach for my revolver. :teehee:
    It's such a dumb ass thing to say. I have no idea why it was ever a respected term. Like did they think the universe was going to remain static? Something is going to always happen to humans. Nature ensures is, whether or not we do it to ourselves. At the very east we have to react to nature, regardless of whether of politics.
