The Toilet Paper Bears – A Fitting Analogy for once.

So, leave aside the notion that male bears tend to eat their offspring. It's a little too graphic for the anthropomorphists But one of their new themes is Poppa Bear and Little Bear in a rowboat fishing. Little Bear gets impatient. Then has the bright idea to drop a piece of the Overpriced-and-not-any-better-than-any-other-brand of toilet paper into the water.Which is so absorbent that it dries up the whole lake. All the fish are gasping for water to breathe, flopping around in their death throes. Somehow, in the insane popularity contest that passes for "awww, wook at the cute animals" the fish aren't given fake smiles, humanized eye placement and faces, and the other pond dwellers who are sometimes anthropomorphized, like the frogs, aren't represented. BUT... That's not the truly relevant part. 15459

The seed ark

One of the stories I find so ridiculous in the Torah is the story of Noah and his Ark. It's like God forgot to tell him to take any plant life onboard! So what gave? Luckily modern day scientists do not have to depend on such a backward deity and will be able to save us with their 'seed bank' ...NOT. Massive effort underway to save endangered seeds. 6508

Fell not one more forest tree!

OLD GROWTH FORESTS. Sure we need lumber but we now need forests yet more. Two hundred years of industrial exploitation of the planet and now most of the forests are gone, and what remains are scraggly, sickly remnants that are not supportive of any remaining natural wildlife. Still, the slaughterhouse 'forestry' approach continues to bulldoze them down. The goal? 6254
