2. Although if society does dissolve into anarchy, we can welcome our new feathered overlords: I read this week that crows “seem to be able to use causal reasoning to solve a problem“–something that even chimps aren’t able to do.

Shiver me timbers! How could I be forgettin’ such a momentous event? Bilmey, it’s a good thing we has a good Captain to remind us!
Gunner's Mate Isbell

Avast there matey!
Ye be forgetting to mention that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. I be celebrating with a double ration of grog on the quarterdeck today. Strike the jib and hoist the Colors! Aarrr!
