  1. I’m still waiting for the day when I get to ask one of these morons when it was that they became Biblical Creationists.

    (What’s that? Not a Creationist? You mean you think we are just an ordinary primate descended from the apes? Really. Well that’s puzzling. Because if Man is just another naturally-evolved animal (like, say, a beaver), then everything he does (like building dams) is natural (the way a beaver dam is natural). But if Man’s dams are “unnatural” simply because it is Man who builds them, then obviously Man himself isn’t natural. So we must be here as a result of Divine Intervention. ie – God created us directly. Right?)

    Then sit back and just watch their eyes spinning as they try to square that circle …

    Tennyson* was right.
    A threat doesn’t have to be a predator, if it eats all the stuff that your food eats or that you eat (see also: locusts).

  6. You insult the Victorians, who were massive destroyers of wildlife. The noble savage idealisation of nature is largely Rousseau’s, and its twentieth century revival is Beatrix Pottwe’s and Disney’s.

  7. I’ve eaten fried, wild rabbit and thought it was quite tasty.

  8. I once shot a rabbit with a .270. When I picked it up the guts fell out and all I had to do was skin it.
    And no, it did not taste like chicken.

  9. One of the things that caused my Lib’rul galpal to dump me was my comment on the downstate idealists preservation of upstate wolves.
    Two litters a year. How many generations to overpopulation and environmental destruction?

  10. Looks like the “artist”*spit* defaced the local environment with a bunch of fabric made from….gasp…. fossil fuel products…. gasp…can’t breathe… and used fossil fuel driven compressors (no windmills or nukes to make electricity in San Fran, right?) to inflate them with a gas that contains….C. O. 2. eek!!!
    Why are almost all “performance” artists self important, no-talent jackasses?

  17. Puts me in mind of the movie “Night of the Lepus” (with Ray Milland, I think?) which was about an invasion of giant bunnies. And no, it wasn’t supposed to be funny.
