A three friggin hour talk about insecticides.
That’s what myself and fellow industrial chemical salespersons were forced to sit through one hot un-air conditioned afternoon.
Almost everyone in the overpaid group (except me of course 😎 ) was sleeping physically or mentally but after two hours when Dr. Doom took his first breath, I asked him a question that changed my life.
“If there was a war between the insects and humans, who would win?”
“Well uh…” he chuckled as if caught off guard. “We’re doing everything we can to wipe them out right now, and uh, as I just said for the last two hours – our chemicals and efforts are becoming less effective. So… I would say that there IS a war and we are definitely losing.”
I wondered how many battles we were fighting right now and at how many levels and about the same time I realized how little we can afford to piss off any more entities on the planet.
Because from what the good doktor told me that stifling afternoon, if just the dolphins and cockroaches get together, we’re screwed.
Or pelicans and gophers.
Thank you, friend.
Ya sure, let’s start mixing it up with spiders!
