    <Due to the terrorist bombing of two weeks ago memetic
    evolution is likely to see some drastic changes and boosts indeed.>

    I predict that memes of UFO sightings and alien abduction will weaken
    greatly, as people have more realistic dangers to worry about (constantly
    reinforced by the media). Is it a coincidence that UFO memes started in
    1947 when brains were no longer preoccupied by war?
