Just a day after I wrote the last post, an article “Here be dragons” appeared in Nature online (http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v520/n7545/full/520042a.html). The theme: That dragons are merely asleep, and are likely to be reawakened by climate change, and the increasing supply of knights. The authors: Andrew Hamilton, Edward Waters and Robert May – himself, a knight.
The date? April 1st, of course.
