Making pigs fly is easy... that is, of course, after you have built the catapult....

True. However, all the trophic levels in our biosphere must be looked at to avoid giving the wrong impression. The weight of ants exceeds that of humans AND they have a faster metabolism. Termites put out more methane than all the cows on the planet by a 30X factor. The entire insect biomass is gigantic.

And the zoo and phyto plankton biomass is even greater than the ants!

In short, our problem is not biological (i.e. caloric intake related); it's incredibily wasteful machinery and manufacturing and mining that is trashing the planet FOR the top 1% of humans MOSTLY BY the top 20% of them.

I can give stats on all the above.  8) I have an article on the back burner that includes them. I'll get to that in a month or so. It's hard to tell right now. BUT, all that info is hard science and available on the internet.  8)

Yep, Homo Sap is BAD. But it's not our SHIT and EATING that makes us BAD; it's our planet trashing MACHINERY. Closed loop recycling is not pie in the sky. Nature has done it for millions (at least!) of years.

It's high time we RElearned how to do it and make proper machinery instead of that primitive mechanical CRAP that runs our civilization now.

What a friggin Sick Joke Surly.

People running a corporation are caught committing serious crimes.

The government catches them red handed.

They make a deal that the innocent shareholders in the corporation are the ones to pay the fine and do the suffering.

They sign these deals without admitting or denying guilt and hand over a 7 billion dollar corporate check that the shareholders foot the bill for.

Their Jobs, Exorbitant Salaries and Perks and Bonuses continue as if nothing had happened.  :icon_scratch: :exp-angry: :exp-angry: :exp-angry:

This bull shit goes on ever day and really pisses me off. What is going on in the legal system of our country??

                                                                 :WTF:

Surly,


Nevertheless, when certain limits are reached, the knitting is READY...
