Give me the tropical beach with a macaw (or any other tropical parrot with a large enough beak to use as a can opener), with plenty of limes & corona on ice.

Bears that shoot lightning from their eyes remind me of a little skit called Mordor with a D.

Why do I recall seeing no smoking signs IN Pierre's main concert hall? Of course, everyone ignores the signs and smokes despite the signs.

Irony...

CO2 is a crappy heatsink. And while I agree we shouldn't be dumping mercury and other toxic crap into places where it didn't already exist, we do have a right as the dominant species on the planet to get what we want to grow and thrive. If that's arrogance, I would love to see a squirrel stop the n...

I agree that environmentalism is a philosophical system akin to religion, but I think that it was a religion the first time when it was called PAGANISM. . .which, I think, far predates the Environmentalist movement of the last 20 years by a few centuries or so. Good call... Brings to mind the movie...

Okay, let's take the torture animals vs. people out of this. Let's take any political & religious stances out of this. Let's even take the psych & conditioning aspect out of this. I have pets. I treat them as companions. Losing a pet sucks (I lost two pets this month that I've had for severa...

How about that. Grindspine, Garr and I all in agreement on a topic... And I agree we should do everything we can to pollute less, but this really is all about political posturing and an attempt at global socialism. Also, one more interesting thing I found yesterday. Climatologists have discovered t...

I don't have cable. Priorities. *nods* I have other priorities too. It's nice getting fuzzy food network coming in half way occasionally though. I do have to say though, that the bipartisanship of the government right now is, as was already stated, gridlocking the government. It's an us vs. them sc...

I like most Hypocrisy albums after The Fourth Dimension. The self titled album, The Arrival and Virus are especially great! ----- On the topic of political hypocrisy, though, Jones, do you ever watch The Daily Show? I think you'd enjoy the banter between a former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. and Jon ...

The hit American movie "300" has angered Iranians who say the Greeks-vs-Persians action flick insults their ancient culture and provokes animosity against Iran... This movie was about the Greeks LOSING (though kicking MUCH ass in the process) at ONE battle in the Greek-Persian war. It was...

Problem with nuclear power is that the most efficient breeder reactors are also the ones that produce weapons grade materials. Thus, those type of nuclear plants are not really that popular for use (unfortunately). And people are always afraid that nuclear plants create three eyed fish. I will admit...

Once at Busche Gardens in VA, the bar on the Anaconda roller coaster unlatched while I was riding it. Gotta believe I grabbed that safety bar, yanked down and held on tight. But part of a ride FALLING on you AFTER it drops you.

If there is a god, he hated that child!
