We're also only 11 months away from the centennial of the sinking of Titanic...hard to believe it's already upon us.

It took centuries to make the Chinese pyrotechnic powder a deadly weapon. It was just a matter of months to make the first large-scale controlled nuclear fission a doomsday weapon. The flying machine as a strategic weapon within 8 years lies just in the interval. For the best and the worst, Man is just no common animal.

With a population of over 6 billion, I don't think you can classify man as "uncommon."
