life after us

One of the most amazing things I've seen on television in a long time was a special created by the History channel called Life After People. If you've seen this, I'm sure you'll agree that it was captivating. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since.

Imagine what the earth would be like if people just ceased to exist. This has nothing to do with religion or god (at least not from the filmmakers point of view), just a simple hypothetical situation. They cover topics as wide ranging as household pets (the ones who manage to get out of the house if they're trapped inside) going back to basic instincts for survival (pack mentality, etc.), to the longevity of dams and bridges, to new species of animals that might pop up when they have a chance to get together after decades of being apart from human intervention. Amazing stuff. While watching a special on The Bermuda Triangle (very interesting) last night, I noticed they're showing it again!!!

This is a must see. The clip above is the first seven minutes of the special. I think you can find the rest on You Tube if you don't have the History network.

I LOVED this. I saw it months ago, it's FANTASTIC. Good to know that my pots will still be around ;) Although, I don't think my Dudley would make it out there. He THINKS he's a big dog, but he's a little too trusting.
