I have been reading lately about what has been going on with the
Aral Sea, and it got me to wondering. What do you think the
greatest man-made environmental disaster has been in recent
history? I am looking for a discrete event as opposed to, say,
"global extinction".

I remember how my great-uncle Jerry would sit on the porch
and whittle all day long. Once he whittled me a toy boat out
of a larger toy boat I had. It was almost as good as the first
one, except now it had bumpy whittle marks all over it. And
no paint, because he had whittled off the paint.
