Rhinos Are Less Endangered!

Several times I have passed along great postings that I found through reading David Teten's Blog, Brain Food. Today, he posted a link to a fascinating site called Fractals of Change, written by Tom Evslin. Tom describes himself as a "retired serial ceo currently writing an historic murder mystery set in the Internet bubble"!

In today's posting on Unintended Consequences, I read the following lines that I knew I had to share:

Viagra is saving the rhinos. No, not by overcoming erectile dysfunction in wrinkled old rhinos but rather by reducing the demand for rhinoceros horn as an aphrodisiac in Asia since a more effective alternative has been available.

The White Rhino is grateful for this unintended consequence!
