Ah, yes it is! This is like professional wrestling! Admittedly,
it's spitballs vs. a tank, but just because the fight is fixed
doesn't mean it doesn't have a cartoony entertainment value.]]]

The only other piece of information needed to account for the
prevelance of flood myths is to realize that people really like
living in the good soil found in flood plains.]]]
---It occurred to me some years ago that when you think about it,
floods are just about the only major natural disasters that occur
almost everywhere, occasionally even in deserts. So if there is
really a prevalence of flood myths, that might be why. We would
after all not expect to hear, say, volcano myths in areas where
there no volcanoes. But flood myths do not really surprise me.

Probably the same reason Ford keeps on selling cars despite how bad
they are for people. People like them, and it's 'good for the
Well that, of course, is equally as true for crack cocaine.

having an internal inconsistency... ;-)

Nevertheless, there are efforts being made in Nicaragua (and
elsewhere) to commercially farm iguanas for food.]]]
---And just about time too. There is not really any particular
reason for the current world domination of cattle, pigs and
chickens. I would guess that domesticating an area's local life
might in the long run be easier than bringing in foreign organisms.
Perhaps it is time for Nicaraguan McDonald's outlets to create a
McGuana burger? Or if they really want to be creative, they can call
it the Big McTiamat.
Around here, there is an ongoing project to farm cane rats (which
are largish rodents, about the size of guinnea pigs.) Thus far they
have had quite a bit of success. The animals are easy to raise,
breed like rabbits, have lean, healthy meat and have been eaten by
locals for ages anyway.
