Eh, I was mostly bullied or at most isolated throughout most of school.  It wasn't any better.

Honestly, my stance on the environment is the same as Katey and Naturegirl's. It's just that their reasons for that stance seem to be different. I value humans above all else, and we can't live without certain species, and even non-essential species provide research and resource opportunities. Ergo, they're still valuable and need to be protected.
I also agree with this, we need to protect what’s here. I just meant that we should protect not ONLY for humans, we need to make sure we can survive without causing a mass extinction
Would be good, but if we can't survive without mass extinctions, then so be it, IMO the survival of humanity matters more than that.

There's also the problem of actually enforcing environmental norms. I'd restrict corporations but not ban them (very skeptical of non-authoritarian socialism, state capitalism and a mixed economy is OK, though), and have the state take control of the parts of the industry that pollute the most and try to regulate them.

I do believe we have come to an accord.

Unfortunately, I very much doubt we’ll be able to agree on who should be killed first.

Edit: corrected autocorrect.
I dunno man, let's just chuck a few nukes around and let it sort itself out.

LOL--  About that...


The instance where I worked for a place that got the oriental roaches?

Well, my boss just freaking LOVED to go toke it up in the employee bathroom, which had unfinished drywall walls.  Naturally, those things just fucking soaked up all that pot resin he was huffing out like sponges, and the roaches were subsisting on it.

I had a pyromaniac co-worker who would catch the roaches and burn them alive with a butane torch, and the things reeked of weed when they got roasted.

True story.

TinyPic, the free image hosting site I've used for ages due to its simplicity and ease of use for a free service, is going tits-up...

I'll not only have to find a new place for my random image-sharing needs, I'll also need to rehost everything I've used for the (ill-fated) Majesty and Hellsign LPs if I don't want them to turn into messes of dead links.

I should probably also see what all can be salvaged from the free-free image hosting I did with them for all the blog-o-thread links in my sig. Many of the image links have already long since died, but there might be a few images that I can download and reupload somewhere else. Beh.

This one works well for me.


Well... Kinda duh. We only need to take action if we want to continue being a part of this funny little world. "The Environment" isn't going to stop being an environment just because the humans die off.

No, but it may become slightly worse than Australia everywhere.


We are in no reasonable way capable of eradicating all life on the planet. We're perfectly capable of eradicating all or most of the life that supports us, but we're not going to be turning the earth into a lifeless husk anytime soon.
