  And paper will biodegrade a LOT faster than plastic. So there will be a time
any non-biodegraded data will supercede that which has disappeared to the lack
of preservation or a more permanent form of storage, or accessibility. We have
already lost countless texts from ancient Ur, Arabia and the Egyptian
dynasties, not to mention the southeast of Asia, Europe, and elsewhere where
man's dispersal may have been recorded and lost to time. Now, if only they had
had CD's....

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
