alligator vs. bear / coming up next

today i heard something. i don't remember it exactly, but it was something along the lines of: "in a fight between a grizzly bear and an alligator, the terrain determines the victor." the person saying it said it was an old chinese proverb, but i think people say that when they don't remember where they heard it. either way, i thought it was interesting.

i guess the moral is that if you want to win at [whatever], it's easier if you are on your own turf. i don't know what kind of implications that has on my life, but i think that it probably fits somewhere.

although, if i was to get in on this nature-fight, i would probably chose to be a t-rex. a dinosaur would totally own the bear AND the alligator.

the next few days are going to be really exciting!! whether we like it or not, we are making history here, people. somewhere between our gaping holes in the ozone layer, unusual presidential nominees and unfailing economic uncertainty -- there's history in the making.
