This entire planet should be sealed off from the rest of the cosmos as a mental asylum.
As far as I am concerned, one of those peace prizes is worth about what Ang Lee's Oscar for Brokejack Poundin' is worth. Nothing at all. That would have to be nothing but a political popularity contest.
Are we serious here? Al Gore claims he invented the internet, says cigarette smoke is contributing to greenhouse gases and talks like he's taken a blow to the head in some kind of industrial accident. The guy was never much shakes as a Vice President and that job is so easy even Dick Cheney can handle it. Am I dreaming or did this guy get a Nobel peace prize for a hack piece of marxist agitprop committed to celluloid which will someday get the same respect the film "REEFER MADNESS" gets today? Are you telling me out of the whole planet this is the best guy they could find to give this prize to? As the Czech President said, not quite sure what the relationship between world peace and his crappy flick would be.
This civilization has truly gone to hell in a handbasket. Honestly. Why don't we all get started on a 200 foot high statue of Al Gore's head, like Emperor Nero had built of his hideous mug in Rome?
This is why the interglacial is a huge blessing. It lasts just long enough for the human gene pool to degenerate into blathering mush, then the cold comes back and cleans house.
