  1. Eating Animals http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eating_animals
  2. "In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists." ~ Eric Hoffer
  3. I use Bicycle lights for flash lights. They have multiple settings options for brightness & colour (cool or warm light) and they are sturdy, cheap & waterproof.
  4. No need to apologize FREDDIE. Fill your slaughterhouse boots. I tend to take 100% responsibility/accountability for my feeling/s (and thoughts, actually) so you don't actually have the all powerful ability to hurt them. Or me. I've had a few tail gate parties, gun in hand, myself. "F-ing A". (insert Whiskey Howl / hand formed into punk rock devil sign & pitch forked to the sky, here.). Up in "The Wastelands." I just enjoy the critical thinking skills challenge of thinking outside the generic, white, Wonderbread box, so to speak. I also appreciate being able to debate with someone who can see it for what it is. You seem capable of that.
  5. No need to apologize, L3. I hear your points. They are straight forward, flat out comprehendible and easily dialog/debatable. Furthermore, they don't have a three hour marching band parade of distracting hoopla. Okay, I can see your point. I can see the amount of hogs as being a man made problem, and it's a big one. However, I stand that we, the long pig, are no different: ferral animals wreaking havoc on the earth. Gobbling up whatever we can get our snouts on. Ironic, I'd say. And beautifully metaphorical. So now, what shall we do about this issue? Take helicopters and shoot out areas of people? Of course not. So naturally I question our doing this to a species so close to our own. A species that we can actually take (and have taken) and successfully transplant organs from. From their bodies to ours. Naturally, I'm thinking, shyte man, there's a whole lot of perfectly good donors getting smashed apart for nothing. How perfectly ridiculous. Sling: porc shops... what on earth would a person having a really bad day do without Vertical. Personally, I find pork too rich and fatty. I prefer a very lean, healthy diet. So the answer is no. However, the love of my life loves pork, and eats it often. To each their own.
  6. Name calling? The term long pig has often been used to refer to our species. We have similar meat. If you read, you will find my sentence: "Your argument wreaks of hypocrisy." It's called debate. The argument is flawed. And self-righteous. Kind of like your attitude. I'll dumb it down for you: Taking a helicopter and shooting the shyte out of these pigs because they are in your back yard and are wreaking havoc on your land is unethical. Herd the things into a pen. Euthanize them ethically. Forgive me in advance for not responding to any of your future responses, TQN.
  7. Apparently what you fail to fully comprehend (and take responsibility for), is that we are ferral animals. We have done no different. And on a global scale, we have done and are doing far far worse. Your argument wreaks of hypocrisy.
  8. Have you noticed what ferral long pigs (PEOPLE) are doing to the land/planet?
  9. Thank you for providing the link. It's a relief to have an opportunity to hopefully stop this.
  10. not if you make wise investments in epic paintings.
  11. ps... If anyone has any information regarding service or celebration of life please post or PM me. Thank you.
  12. I learned more from Dave in the few dozen exchanges of messages here than I did through 7 years of University. From specifics on the aviation industry, to military life in Vietnam, to life after Vietnam, to living with the effects of post traumatic stress disorder, to growing beyond it... to growing up with a Mother in the aviation industry, to red corvettes. Endlessly encouraging, classy, and kind. He offered "above and beyond," and was an enormous and delightful contribution. Truly a rare find. Deepest condolences to family, friends and loved ones. Rest in Great Natural Peace, Dave. My best, Sheri Bakes
  13. Colleen Christie certainly has come a long way since her Woodgrove Mall commercials in Nanaimo... I don't know what kind of pressures reporters have to "get the story" but this one seems a little slow on the go, and mildly dense (to say the least). Who knows. Maybe she'll get promoted for heroic danger-journalism-ism... Bottom line: sucks to be blonde.
  14. Deepest condolences to family, friends and loved ones.
  15. Thanks for the information & posting that link, CJM91. And also for decoding my previous, somewhat cryptic, post.
  16. Thank you, PedalJam. re: Conair crew... "The lone person on board, a male pilot, was able to escape out of the aircraft, Pedersen said. There were no reported injuries and he was taken to hospital for observation." Good news the pilot is okay. Wishing everyone very safe flights.
  17. My question with regards to the machines (companies) invested in the Kelowna fires was sincere... Just wondering who is there, and how it is decided who gets to go. Thank you in advance for any information. HB
