Are the Natural Resources of the Earth Limited?

Every now and then we can hear hysterical voices, threatening that the humankind will exhaust all the natural resources of our Earth in 10, 20, 100 years (the exact figure varies according to the level of anxiety of every particular doomsayer). But how much credit should we pay to such predictions?

The history itself suggests that all the predictions of the end of the world in any of its senses have been false. No matter whether it is atypical pneumonia, the Large Hadron Collider launch or the exhaustion of fossil fuels, there is, in fact, nothing any single human being can do about them but panicking. Even if we believe that the natural resources will come to an end, how this knowledge may help us?

Trouble with Harry by Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock is known to the majority of people as a director of iconic horror movies, which is rather peculiar, as his psychological thrillers can hardly be called “horror” in modern understanding of the word and, in fact, constituted only one half of his creative work together with spy stories. The much less known part of his work is Trouble with Harry, belonging to such a surprising for Hitchcock genre as comedy.

The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett

Stephen Fry, Making History

In his alternative-history novel Making History, Stephen Fry researches a rather specific persona – Adolf Hitler – and tries to answer the question: could it be possible that the world without Hitler would have been a much worse place to live?

A talented physicist with the help of a random assistant creates a contraption that makes it possible for him to influence the past enough to make sure that Hitler has never been born; he hopes that the world will turn into a much more hospitable place if it weren’t torn apart by the World War II.

Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Good Omens

The movie Omen or at least one of its numerous sequels is known, at least as hearsay, to everyone. A little boy who is the son of Satan is born into a family of a powerful American ambassador which leads to all kinds of supernatural happenings with generally bad ending. Two well-known authors, Pratchett and Gaiman, ask a question: what would happen if such a son of Satan would by accident be born into a very-very ordinary English family? Good Omens is their brilliant answer to this question.

Jeeves and Wooster

Jeeves and Wooster series is a famous television adaptation of the eponymous cycle of novels and short stories by British humoristic writer P.G. Wodehouse. Although it is not the only screen version of this writer’s works, it exceeds by far all the others in popularity and success, while still being a humble TV series. The main reason for it, however, is not the excellent screenplay or director’s work, for it is filmed in a rather ordinary television manner, but the brilliant acting of the two leading actors: Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry.

Critical Essay on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams

Douglas Adams is best known for his cycle The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in five books; the rest of his works are much less famous, and for no good reason. Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency first introduces Dirk Gently – a shabby-looking detective working according to the principle of interconnectedness of all things in the world. While Sherlock Holmes used to say that when the impossible is ruled out, what is left, however unlikely, is the actual truth. Dirk Gently, however, refuses to rule out the impossible, and usually turns out to be correct in his assumptions.
