Geez. North Korea, come on.
Two books that I’ve read come to mind:
1. Calculating God by Robert J. Sawyer- just some novel. But there was a really interesting part: these aliens come to Earth and say that, although they can travel throughout the galaxy, they haven’t found many other living species because, as they say, there’s only a small window of time that any species can be found by extraterrestrials. Why? Because of technology. You can’t be found by aliens unless you’ve developed radio. However, after you develop radio, technology keeps increasing faster and faster until a super-atomic-bomb, powerful enough to blow up the whole planet, becomes common enough that anyone can get one. And, sooner or later, someone who’s actually mentally insane (if not someone who’s just really power-hungry) will get one and detonate it.
2. Harry Potter- life’s tough. But then Dumbledore swoops in, with about 30 pages left, and saves everything!
Oh well. It’s like they say about toast: 185 pieces of toast walk into a bar, and SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE!
