Derinkuyu, or: the allure of the underground city My friend Robert and I finished reading Alan Weisman's The World Without Us almost simultaneously – and we both noted one specific passage. Before we get to that, however, the premise of Weisman's book – though it does, more often than not, drift away from this otherwise fascinating central narrative – is: what would happen to the Earth if humans disappeared overnight? What would humans leave behind – and how long would those remnants last?

Temptation Every so often an email lands in my inbox from perhaps the cruelest man I know.
