The Effects of Erosion

Frogs aren't as dumb as they look, apparently. Well, the reason I know that is because I understand that if you take a frog and you put him in a pot of boiling water (why would you do that?) he'll be smart enough to jump out. He knows he's going to die there.

On the other hand, if you put that frog in some lukewarm water, he's going to start swimming around in there. He's going to go, "Oh, it's cool in the pool!" And if you turn it up ever so gradually, the water is going to start to bubble, and steam, and he'll just keep swimming, and diving, and looking up at you with those big old eyes. Until finally the water is boiling and he'll never know what hit him. He'll slowly become comfortable in something that will ultimately kill him. Maybe just like us.
