English gin in peril?
Based on this article at the Daily Mail it seems entirely plausible that England may have to start importing gin from other countries. Apparently the juniper bush, which is rather crucial to gin's creation, could be extinct in lowland England within 50 years.

I better start stockpiling my Beefeater now....!

Between gin and routers, your life is really controlled by various types of Juniper, isn't it?

Juniper grows everywhere out here! Joshua Tree NP has forests of juniper. All of them have big juicy berries this time of year that smell like something you'd clean your toilet with. :D
