Earth's "Infestation" by man... what a joke.
There are approximately 6.8 billion humans on Earth. Each one takes an average of approximately 20 cubic feet of space. For all of you who can do
some simple math, calculate the total cubic feet in one cubic mile and you will find that EVERY HUMAN ON EARTH would fit into a "box" that is 1
(ONE) cubic mile in size and have lots of space left over.
The atmosphere on Earth to only 5 miles up comprises approximately 10 Billion cubic miles. So man in relation to the Earth's atmosphere is less than
1 in 10 Billion.
Now convince anyone with half sense and one eye that our presence on Earth is affecting climate or polluting the planet to the point that we are going
to "die in our own excrement" or irreversibly poison the planet.
We are a pimple on a gnat's butt.
So, who's prescence is it then?? All the cows in the world for farting??
I lurk on these boards and rarely make comments, mainly because most posts don't deserve any..
But i had to put in my 2c here.
Slayer, most eloquently put. I wholeheatedly agree with you, and i too have felt a sense of foreboding for a number of years, like something is not
quite right with the world.
Someone posted earlier that if the tptb (or some of them) checked this post, they'd have a change of heart, or words to that effect... I'm pretty
sure they'd be rubbing thier greasy fat-fingered hands together, light up another $1000 cigar with another $100 bill, pour out a glass of $25,000
glass of wine into a solid gold wine glass and say... "See this, it's the worlds smallest violin!, go cry to someone who cares!!"
What we need, is for EVERYONE to take one day, only one, and not buy any single thing. No fuel, no food, no ipad, no tv's, no Mcdonalds (not food
imo....), nothing! That would get attention! Unfortunately people will be sheeple, even the simplest thing is way too hard in this age of
disposableness...... Let someone else do it, i need my fix!!
What we REALLY need as a race is another Dark Age. Something to make us take stock of where we have been, where we are and where we are headed.
Without this, we lose!
If there is another race out there with us in it's sights, i say BRING IT! We need it.
If i could, i'd give 100 stars Slayer.
p.s. sorry for the rant guys, but i know how Slayer feels....
