The only species that rivals us in self destructive tendencies are lemmings, and at least when they form a mob and march to their deaths, they don't take the rest of the planet with them.
When people get excited about the prospect of annihilation, you know there's something very wrong. You know what I think it is? It's a cop out. You have a bunch of people (I'm just as guilty of this), hoping the end will come, so they don't have to take responsibility for our future, and our children's future.

Lemmings committing suicide is a myth it was Disney that herd some together and threw them off a cliff for a documentary, it is this documentary from which this myth comes from.
