That’s not a bird, that’s a MUPPET
Discussion topic of choice on this week’s Happy Go Lucky Podcast: The Potoo.
I wrote buckets if essays on its relative, the tawny frogmouth.
He said Star Trek is too “philosophical”? Screw that noise.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
Sad news from Mozambique: Illegal poachers have killed all the rhinos in Limpopo National Park, a large wildlife reserve in the southeast African country, according to news reports.
Park director António Abacar was quoted as saying this week that no rhinos had been seen since January, “which means that the ones that lived in the park are probably dead,” according to the Portugal News.
With all the rhinos gone, poachers are now turning to elephants for their tusks. The horns and tusks are valued for their supposed medicinal value, despite the fact that horns are made of the same basic material as fingernails, with no healing properties. The park spans 4,247 square miles (11,000 square kilometers), an area more than twice the size of the U.S. state of Rhode Island.
Meanwhile, Scientific American reports that for the first time in 33 years, a hunter has been allowed to import a trophy into the United States from a black rhino he shot in Namibia, outraging conservationists.
How black a soul must one have to take the life of another for personal gain in any way, shape or form? I believe poaching should be approached on three accounts: 1. attacking and reducing the need for individuals to turn to illegal behavior in order to sustain themselves and their family or make money 2. Attack the issue at the forefront, guard and protect those parks and rhinos (or elephants) at any cost D: . There’s little wonder why LEWA guards have guns and a solid security system. and 3. Shutting down the avenues made available for the purchase of ivory and other illegal poaching goods. > btw, sorry for my personal rant there :) Kyo
No creature other than the human animal has such talent for destruction.
Every day I read about things like this and it makes me sad that humans are not as evolved as we like to think. It amazes me what we will destroy for short-term financial gain, totally unaware that our actions will have grave consequences in the future.
