Enviro Mentalists Call For Culling Of Human Population

Well I guess this can go into the odd column of news, it's old, but it's also kinda disturbing.

Wait, "Enviro Mentalists"? Something tells me that isn't an accidential typo, judging from the other content on that site. All this is is an extremist on one side citing extremists on the other as if ithey somehow had any kind of support. They should all be encouraged to just move to an island someplace. The ones writing that article would drive society to ruin by ignoring reality, while the ones cited are luddites who would deny humanity its destiny among the stars.

I say that they ought to be the ones culled off first. It's important for people to practise what they preach no?

No one's actually claiming that though. The statements are being misrepresented. The British guy is calling for people to have fewer children. The seasheperd guy is a nut calling for the abandonment of most modern technology and reducing the population through regulated breeding. The Houston professor is claiming that there's a good chance an uncontrolled ebola outbreak could kill 90% of the population, not that we should allow it to. The sea shepard guy and his supporters were the ones I referred to in my last post as the "luddites" and "extremists on the other side". The site in question is just as extreme though, it's just on the other side of the spectrum.

I am not exactly for human culling, but I am for neo-Zeon ideals of dropping something big on earth so humans will move to the stars.

Besides, unless we are able to replicate Mass Effect technology of sucking minerals out of human bodies, why do we even cull humans?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Yar, yar. It's possible for us to move to the stars; but only when we achieved cold fusion. The big problem isn't finding a suitable place to live but making one.

Seriously, I'd think this story would be from my home country, not in America xD
I guess I *should* be happy for the "passion" shown by the parents for a sport that isn't as worshipped as it is back in the UK?

Soccer Moms Gone Wild: When Parents Need To Be Refereed At Youth Sports Games
Quote:
As a youth soccer coach in San Francisco for the past seven years, I have seen and heard about some scary behavior from parent spectators. Once when I was refereeing a match between six-year-olds, a mom from the other team ignored my repeated requests for her to stay off the field per league rules. She kept following around her little tyke, and afterwards, she and her husband confronted me angrily about “being so serious” at a kids’ game. I chose not to engage, but the encounter left me rattled because it easily could have led to an ugly shouting match, and quite possibly violence.

Florida teen finds rocks in Nintendo DS box



Quote:
Jodi Wykle knew her son would be thrilled when she gave him a new Nintendo DS for his birthday.

Instead, he was rocked.

According to WTSP-TV, the confused teen opened up his gift only to find bunch of stones and a rolled up Chinese newspaper in place of the popular handheld.

Needless to say, mom was equally stunned.

"When he opened it, he was pulling the seal off, my sister-in-law carries a pocket knife and she opened it and that's when he pulled it out and it was Chinese newspaper and a bunch of rocks," she explained.

The troubling discovery prompted the Florida woman to contact the local Wal-Mart where she bought the curious box and complain, but reportedly workers there told her it wasn't their problem and that she should contact Nintendo instead. Of course, Nintendo told her roughly the same thing, leaving mother and son with a $138 box of rocks.

I guess Wal-Mart would have to replace it with a real one.
