Sex and money. The 2 most powerful motivators in the known universe, right? Hey Paul, maybe we could combine the plots, where the 2 losers actually conquer and create a new species by mating with the apes, and the losers end up being king of humans, which they enslave to a life of mining. They would have to be able to survive in the atmosphere though lol.

On a different note, I think I am coming around to the idea that free will exists within certain parameters.....that were established long before humans. Everything within that parameter, which is governed by the laws of physics, is up for grabs, but there is a larger perspective that we cannot possibly be aware of, at this stage in human development. There's a lot of possible ways for us to happen here, but the truth is, no one knows the facts. So have a good time and don't worry and be happy is my attitude.
