Came across this in a book by English author Terry Pratchett in his book "Death Trilogy"
"Alone of all the creatures in the world,trolls believe that all living things go through time backwards.If the past is visible and the future is hidden,they say,then it means you must be facing the wrong way.Everything alive is going through life back to front.
And this is a very interesting idea,considering it was invented by a race who spend most of their time hitting one another on the head with rocks."

Fits. Trolls going ackbasswards, getting stupider and more immature daily. Lucky us to watch evolution in reverse.

If memory serves, the way to deal with trolls is to keep them arguing with each other until it's morning and they all turn to stone.
Cutting their heads off is so messy.

For all of you TEOWAWKI fans and aficionados may I recommend "Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. They take all of the "end times" portents and cliches (except Y2K) and bundle them together into one hilarious romp. A must read for Douglas Adams fans, as well.
"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so." --- Douglas Adams
