In Iraq we had a serious problem with mice chewing through the ends of our fiber optic cables, right where they came out of the protective sheath and were terminated.  They'd squeeze or chew their way into the termination boxes to get at them to bite them off behind the tips. 

The problem was that the gel we had, which was applied when tipping the lines, smelled like citrus.  Apparently the mice loved that.  I wanted to kill the engineer who came up with the bright idea of giving the gel a tasty aroma.

One of the big problems with trans-Atlantic fiber optic cables is that they emit some sort of electricity which atracts prehistoric sharks, causing them to rise from their normal habitat in the deepest depth of the ocean.  That usually ends badly for the humans. 

I saw that on a documentary once.  Or maybe it wasn't a documentary, but some show anyway.

      That's like this program I saw, where in Japan, they found that the lights of moving trains attracted real big lizards with radioactive halitosis.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
