Me, I'm a member of PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals) and on a **strict** Vegetarian diet... I only eat vegetarians. Although, I have heard that African Lion is good.

Recreational fishing is alright. Just throw the fish back in when you're done, or eat them (then it's not recreational anymore)

Fishing just to see them die is stupid.

PETA is to good causes as Osama is to priests. :)

Would that mean that you follow a kosher \ halal type pig free diet? What about fish, which may not be strictly vegetarian? :D

All the previous centuries casualties was caused by those pesky Martians pouring them down their gullets, until finally they where defeated and our minds cleared by that Xeno-Martian Mind Controlling Machine...
Interesting parallel there. People hate humans testing stuff on animals. But get an alien fritzing about with a human, and they're perfectly OK with it. Double standards burn them in their saucers, that's what I say.

I'm going to soap dodge for 3 weeks, pop down the local corn field with a placard and note book. When one of those alien b**stards pops up to pull a crop circle I'll find out where he lives and burn his house down.

That'll teach them not to mess with wovery witow hummy wummys.

A couple of points (with no preferences implied) ...

Climate change may or may not be our fault. The jury is still out, although it does become increasingly obvious that if it is us, we're going to leave it too late to do anything about it. One thing is for sure - we certainly ain't helping the situation.

Fox hunters merely hunt and destroy foxes (although far fewer than some people would have us believe). Recreational anglers take positive steps to preserve the environments of the species they hunt, and support breeding programs to ensure the survival of those species. I see a difference, even if it's a selfish one.

But none of it matters. The Earth isn't real either.

You're taking me way too literally... I was just poking some fun at PETA. (Can't stand 'em...)

Now, where's my steak?!?

This is my first attempt at thread necromancy so please don't be too hash.

I saw this and thought of this thread:

http://xkcd.com/202/

Although it's hard to say but I reckon the link is even older than the thread (do I get extras marks for this?) as YouTube must have been the 'new' thing at the time.

Edit: publication date 27-12-2006. :shock:

You should only resurrect a thread if it really fits your subject. Not to do it just for the sake of looking for the oldest thread to comment on.

But nice try :wink:

In fact, there is a much more recent and fitting article on XKCD's "What if?" column, regarding the idea to look with the hubble telescope for signs of the lunar landing and why it's not a great idea. :mrgreen: Ok, they talk about earth, but the moon is mentioned, too.

(Oh, and shameless plug, you can havemultiple hubbles in Oolite... :oops: :wink: )

Pity that video doesn't work any more.

I would have liked to have watched it.

This is the video I think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wptn5RE2I-k That's a low quality version, a better one is from 9:30 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMYyTjyWWlI

Also an Ali-G version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BheL-a5Aeis ("you've heard it here first, the moon is real" :) )

To be serious - for a moment.

The subject of anonymity on BBs in Bermuda has become quite serious.

My point is that if Bermuda suppresses its Human Rights legislation even more than it has already done - then it may as well be called a dictatorship.

Don’t forget you have two Elite Developers out there....

At the risk of feeding a Troll.

As a British dependency Bermuda should have a governor. His/Her email address should be publicly available. If it was me I'd make my feelings known to them.
