Nah... we're ok. The same parts of the brain that generate responses like you see in that video are also responsible for some amazing acts of bravery, valor, and generosity. It's the dichotomy of humanity that's been guiding us since we became sentient.

Maybe I have been watching too much Walking Dead. Someone at work turned me onto it so I have been planning for the Zombie Apocalypse which starts next month. What did you think the Mayans were talking about? Pretty good show by the way if you're into that kind of stuff...
