THE BLOB: A THRIVING ENVIRONMENT


Years ago, there was a movie called The Blob. This cosmic Jell-O had come down from space, fell into a little crater, and cracked open. An old man came and had a little stick in his hand and was playing with it, and it ran up on his arm and began to consume him. Some folk found him and rushed him into a hospital room. The doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong, when the doctor touched it, the Blob consumed the doctor too. The Blob then rolled outside of the hospital and consumed everything and everybody in its path. By the time the movie comes to an end, the Blob is the size of a mountain.


Throughout the movie, people had tried everything they could to get rid of the Blob. They'd shot at it. They'd tried to cut it. Nothing seemed to work. But at the end of the movie, they discovered one little thing. The Blob could not handle cold. It could deal with anything else, but it couldn't handle cold. Someone noticed that when they sprayed something cold on it, the Blob would back up. They figured they couldn't get rid of it completely, but they could protected themselves by staying in a cold environment. All that had to do was make no provisions for the blob! If they ventured forth where the blob was on a hot day - they would be consummed by the blob. Eventually they froze the thing, put it in a crate, tied it to an an airplane and dropped it over Alaska!


We can avoid the reigning power of the nature as surely as they could avoid the blob...don't give it a thriving enviornement!
