The Environment Is Overrated

Well, as is my normal routine, I will pick a social topic on which to rant… right after I go pee…

…ok, I’m back. I’ll start with my normal “belligerent, inflammatory comment.” Who the heck cares about the stupid environment, anyways!?

There… I said it. I don’t care about the environment. And here’s why. The planet Earth has survived quite nicely for many years, and I doubt very much that we human beings are capable of actually destroying the world by polluting. How prideful is it to think we have the means to actually destroy the planet? And while I’m at it… Who the heck cares if a species becomes extinct because of something we do!?Come on, folks. Really. Don’t we all believe the whole thing about “survival of the fittest?” I thought that was the way the world got better… by the weak genetic strains being killed off, or dying because they couldn’t acclimate to the environment.

What will really happen if we pollute too much, or strip mine too much, or use up all our natural resources, is that WE will die. Yeah, we might kill off a few “lesser” species in the process, but ultimately, we’ll only hurt ourselves. The planet will continue quite nicely without us if we manage to extinct ourselves.

Why do we care so much if some stupid baby seals go extinct? If they’re so special, why don’t they build themselves some factories and manufacture guns to defend themselves? It’s because they are just DUMB animals. You can argue with me all day long about it, and at the end of the day, I’ll still say that humans are more important than animals, if for no other reason than we are capable of invention and creative thought. You’ll never see an ostrich winning a Nobel prize. I’ve never seen a dog taking a business class. So get off your high horse and find something really important to worry about.

Before I leave you, I’d like to share a joke with you that my sister told me. Panda walks into a bar, orders a hamburger and eats it. Then he gets up, pulls out a gun, and shoots at the ceiling. Then he starts to walk out. The bartender yells after him “HEY, why’d you do that?” And the panda says “Dude, I’m a panda…look it up” and throws the bartender a dictionary. The bartender looks up panda in the dictionary: “Panda (n) Small bear native to China. Eats shoots and leaves.”

    AUTHOR: thea HRT: While the dangers of riding anything are always at large, … some things provide either the physical or mental strain whilst others are a morbid combination of the two. Note to all: Do not let anything that weighs 9x your body weight flip over and land atop your personal frame.

(at least not yet, seeing as I’m only witty to the criminally insane… well and to those on heavy doses of narcotics) (good thing no one reads inside of parenthesis)

    AUTHOR: HRT Is it just me or did that post by jamey read like it was typed by a crack-addict. It’s like every 4 words was completely unrelated to the previous 4 words. But then being the “genius” that I am fortunately I was able to completely decipher it. By reading between the lines…

    AUTHOR: thea Well that’s just great, …. hopped on on a new dosage, and now I want to die right here in my office, … personally, I don’t know many children with buckknives, and I don’t think canibalism is a very positvie topic for a Monday.

    AUTHOR: HRT …yes it is true. Incredipete does have 40 comments. But seeing as 32 of those comments have come from the same 4 individuals perhaps we should hold off on the ticker tape parade just yet, ya think???

  15. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jackie Oh happy day! A miracle is taking place before our eyes. Is it Wendy and thea talking? No, ( but that is nice too.) it is the fact that Incredipete has 40 comments.

  16. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Wendy Since you are on the drizugs today, let me explain something to Thea. The reference to the imaginary bowel movements was to the I’m Shameless diary entry. If you want to get the urge to kill yourself. Go read it.

    AUTHOR: Wendy Okay, this is weird, but here it goes. I must agree with Thea. Pain-killing drugs are our friends. I must thank her for the compliment. At least I think it was a compliment. Sassy and classy Boo!

    AUTHOR: thea Dearest Wendy: As you clearly are unable to function without this horrid distaste in your mouth, I’d like to be one to reach out & say we would probably get along quite well if I wasn’t extremely wacked on pain killers at this moment. Huurah for the pharmaceutical companies … granted they’re dumping every other what-not, toxic what-ever into everywhere … my back feels waaay better, and I can actually sit & stand without crying. Wendy, you can bet even I’d hug you, you sassy beotch.

  32. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Incredipete Yup, it’s good. They have cheesesteak sandwiches as well as some gyros which I’ve never actually tried. Also they have really good fries and cheese dip! Maybe sometime you’ll see me there. Of course, I won’t know you even if you see me, but I’ll be the guy that looks like “Incredipete Deisel” except without the muscles… lol.

  33. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: missmisery Yeah, I knew we were both in the same place. I’m just not a big divulger of the personal info. I prefer to remain an enigma wrapped in a mystery and all that jazz…….So it has cheesesteaks & stuff? We’re looking for a good cheesesteak place because we don’t like that Cheesesteak Alley on SM Pkwy & Chartroose Caboose is too far to go for lunch….Jeez, cheesesteak looks really weird when you type it so many times.

  34. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Incredipete I fully believe everything I put in this article, “Jamey”. I think if you’re so worried about the environment, then you should become a subsistance farmer and ride a horse instead of a car. Otherwise, shut your pie-hole.

  35. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Roger Hey Incredipete, I think the best thing about mankind polluting and stripping the Earth is that the only things left alive when it kills us will be huge mutant bugs and oddball creatures like you would see in fifties sci-fi movies. How cool will that be? The only pity is that we won’t be around to see it. Shame!

    AUTHOR: Wendy Don’t sweat it Incredi. You have good reason to be cautious (with me anyway). But it’s okay now. I told you I was just joshing with you guys before. You, I might add, handled it very well though. And believe this, when you write another, well, not so good entry, you will be receiving a little, as nice as I can muster, constructive (not to be confused with destructive) criticism.

    AUTHOR: S. Redhead, Esq. The bunny is terribly cute. And so tiny. Awwww. RE: endangered species: The reason we should try not to kill off our animals, simply put, is the FOOD CHAIN. If we kill the animal that our food eats, we got problems. Yo.

  45. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Incredipete Thank you both for your newfound supportive attitudes. I’ve been slow in expressing my gratitude in fear that you are just playing a cruel joke on me and tomorrow you’ll tell me all of your niceness was just thinly-masked sarcasm. But I should really learn to be more trusting. It’s hard to trust when your own mother would hide needles and razor blades in the casserole every night, but I’ll come around eventually.

  46. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Wendy I feel your pain Jackie. It has been many a time that I threw old Petie a bone only to be disappointed by his lack of gratitude.

  47. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jackie p.s. I gave your entry a compliment yesterday. Maybe if you wouldn’t update every three effing minutes you would have seen it.

  48. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jackie I find it scary that I agree with Incredipete. However I must say: seals can’t build factories, not because they are stupid, but because they have no opposable thumbs.

  50. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Incredipete I don’t believe we should intentionally kill animals we don’t intend to eat, but if we accidentally pour massive quantities of radioactive waste into a major river and it happens to kill off a weaker species, then I’m all for it. The alternative is that we all live without our DVR’s and SUV’s. I for one am not ready to make those sacrifices.

    AUTHOR: Wendy Incredipete! How dare you! I must inform you that I am an animal lover. I mean I am a for real animal lover. It is true that I do love some animals more than others, specifically those that make it onto my dinner plate. Cows, pigs, chickens and even the occasional, but not on purpose, cat at the Shanghai Express. Then there is the love and compassion that I have for all of the rest of God’s creatures great and small (have I heard that somewhere before?). They need to be respected and protected dammit! Protect them because they are, for the most part, defenseless. Respect them because more than a few of them could kick our weak little human asses if the mood struck them. The difference between us and them is that they only break shitty, using their built-in arsenals (i.e. tusks, poison, fangs, hooves, stingers, muscles (to squeeze the holy shit of you, claws and teeth (I mean big mudder-effing teeth), when they are being threatened. And the big bad humans come along with all their store bought shit (i.e. knives, .22 calibur rifles (purchased just last week during the blue light special at the Super-Kmart), high velocity harpoons, traps and this weeks coupon for the local taxidermist) and kill everytthing in sight for the fun of it. I’ve said it before and I will say it again. Assholes! So let me warn you Incredipete my boy. One of these days there is subject to be an uprising of animals who are pissed the fuck off. When they unleash their fury (and who could blame them) it is going to be like “Maximum Overdrive” Bambi style. So, if you are hungry, kill whatever you have to in order to stay alive, I got your back. But if you ain’t hungry and you are killing things—well then you had better watch your back. Because believe you me, it will not be pretty (what with human heads stuck on a plaque in a bear’s cave and all). Remember, baby seals are “people” too.
