In Aus (cairns ) I stayed in a hostel one night and was enjoying a good shower covered in soap, suddenly some thing jumped on my shoulder scaring me to death, I ran out the shower in to the dorm, naked, soap in my eyes shouting What is it - get it off, every one was laughing, it was a tree frog stuck to my back with little suckers for feet - It got me known and I made some good friends that night due to that little frog.

Well, I guess what they say is true. To kill a frog put it in a pot of cold water and slowly turn up the fire.

"Ron B." said it perfectly that the collapse of amphibians worldwide is a harbinger of things to come if we do not stop trashing Mother Earth right now, but it seems to me that mankind is on the fast track to oblivion.

"Intelligent species" my ass.
