Random thoughts.

Made it home in one piece. Despite Krondax's driving. Saw 3 cops.

Still have 6 bottles of Shiner Bock, 5 bottles of that smirnoff twisty stuff.

Cant hear out of my right ear, didnt take decent in FIRST CLASS too well. (yeah, I splurged, didnt want to risk having to put my Shiner Bock in the bottom of the plane)

Weekend was mostly fun.

I was not hammered. I also was not drunk. Plus, I cant aim for shit with a pistol.

Little kids can be fun (until they leave popcorn in your bed, and all over the floor of ones room, poor cleaning lady)

BC was not drunk, he was mearly inspecting all the beer.

Spats will have the most wonderful story to tell. Lets say... it was of the 3 hour tour variety.

Saved model girl (she was nice to me).

Also, she hugged me.. its a Texas thing, I am told.

Nearly had to save model girl from Spats and Krondax.

If she reads this I will die of emberassment. However you spell it.

Misha nearly choked me. (his mother has a mustache, LOL)

Texas does have trees. (I was shocked!)

I have pics.

I need to get downloading them.

Hi there,

Hi, you liberal asshat.

I'm a reader.

BULLSHIT sez me.

I've recently started a blog of my own, at,

I told you before, I only am doing this for friends of mine. Along with whoever else wanders in. I don't want people linking to me, I just don't stop them if they choose to do so.

You're doing a great job, by the way.

Stupidity in action.

Go smoke-free in Menomonie
Doug Mell
Leader-Telegram Staff

The Menomonie City Council owes it to the three-quarters of its constituents who don’t smoke to provide smoke-free restaurants.

Smoke free mandated by YOUR government, because YOUR too stupid to do it yourself.

And both Menomonie and Eau Claire should ban smoking in workplaces — with the possible exception, for the time being, of taverns.

Because the Tavern owners would go ballistic because of lost revenue.

If Menomonie council members considering a workplace and restaurant smoking ban are skittish, they should talk to Terry Sheridan.

Yes, talk to the man who doesnt want people smoking in ANY city he goes to.

Sheridan was instrumental in getting smoking banned in Eau Claire restaurants in 2000. At the time it was the most stringent smoking ban on the books in Wisconsin.

I thought it was stupid then, too.

“I’d tell them that it has worked out very smoothly,” Sheridan said of what he would tell his Menomonie colleagues about the Eau Claire experience.

Yup, now people smoke in the doorways of their own buildings.

There was a lot of gloom and doom predicted when Eau Claire took the plunge: restaurants would go out of business or relocate out of the city, and workers would either lose their jobs or have their wages cut. None of that happened. In fact, the city’s restaurant business flourished.

Actually, alot of resturants now have bars too, making them "Taverns".

“I have not known one restaurant” that closed or suffered a “significant loss of business” because of the ban, Sheridan said.

I have noticed, that nobody sticks around those places very long once they are done eating.

Bob McCoy, president of the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce, also said the ban has had little impact in the city. While a couple of businesses may have lost some business, he said, “the consumer appears to be pleased.”

If they were pleased there would have been no loss of buisness.

The Menomonie City Council is in the early stages of considering a smoking ban. Both restaurants and workplaces are being considered.

All hail government mandated non-smoking!

A committee has been established to look at the issue. The council also is considering spending taxpayer money to survey residents about their thoughts on the issue.

At least they are bothering to ask.

Mayor Dennis Kropp is right to raise the issue of how valid such a survey would be. There also is disagreement about how much the survey would cost, with current estimates ranging from $500 to $2,200.

Spend the cash and then add it as a referendum in the next city election. Let the people have thier say.

Banning smoking in restaurants should be an easy vote in Menomonie. Although smaller in size, Menomonie has a lot of the characteristics of Eau Claire — a university town with mix of businesses and restaurants — meaning it is safe to assume a restaurant ban would work well.

Unless the people who used to go eat in Eau Claire, now go out to dinner in Menomonie.

Linda McIntyre, executive director of the Greater Menomonie Area Chamber of Commerce, said the Board of Directors has decided it will not take a position in the smoking-ban debate. It is surveying businesses on their smoking policies.

Best idea yet, let the OWNERS of said buisness decide if they should ban smoking in THIER buildings.

Many restaurants and businesses already ban smoking, she said. McIntyre said her opinion is that a restaurant smoking ban would go over well in establishments that emphasize food, but those that sell a significant amount of alcohol probably would protest.

Because people go thier to have fun and be able to smoke if they wish.

It probably will surprise a lot of people in Eau Claire that smoking is not banned in businesses other than restaurants that sell more food than alcohol. There are indications the City Council may be asked this year to close this loophole.

Water Street is going to see an upsurge of smoking in entryways. Or a decline in buisness.

“That’s one that we are talking about,” Sheridan said of banning smoking in businesses.

He is just mad he didn't get a city wide ban on smoking.

That, too, should be an easy sell. It is hard to think of a business in Eau Claire that allows smoking. That’s probably why most people believe it is banned.

That, and they were told it was a city wide ban when it came out.

Society is getting much more comfortable with their governments ensuring they have smoke-free environments when eating out or working. The Eau Claire restaurant experience should give guidance to decision-makers in Menomonie.

Personally, I avoid eating at anything other than a place with a drive through in Eau Claire. If I want to sit down and have a good meal I go to the Albertville Tavern and eat good steak.

Yes, smoking is allowed there, not that I care, I quit some years ago.

U.S. lawmakers: Don't use Israeli bullets
Army told Jewish ammo OK for training but not fighting Muslim guerrillas
Posted: June 28, 2004
1:00 a.m. Eastern

By Aaron Klein
© 2004

Israeli-made bullets recently purchased by the U.S. Army should be used for training only, not to fight Muslim guerrillas in Iraq and Afghanistan, U.S. lawmakers told Army generals.

God forbid that we use Jewish bullets to kill muzzies. After all, we must think of the feelings of the assholes trying to kill our people.

Since the Army has other stockpiled ammunition, "by no means, under any circumstances should a round [from Israel] be utilized," said Rep. Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives Armed Services subcommittee with jurisdiction over land forces.

Fuck that, use it and let the jihadis know we are using Jew-made ammo.

The Army contracted Israel Military Industries Ltd. in December for $70 million in small caliber ammunition. The Israeli firm was one of only two worldwide that could meet U.S. technical specifications and delivery needs, said Brigadier Gen. Paul Izzo, the Army's program executive officer for ammunition. The other was East Alton, Illinois-based Winchester Ammunition, which also received a $70 million contract.

That's fair.

Rep. Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania, who chairs the subcommittee on tactical air and land forces, concurred with Abercrombie, explaining that although the Army should not have to worry about "political correctness," there are still "propaganda pitfalls" of using Israeli rounds in the U.S.-declared war on terror.

Not that avoiding the use of Jewish ammo is going to make the muzzies happier with us.

"There's a sensitivity that I think all of us recognize," Weldon told the Army witnesses, including Maj. Gen. Buford Blount, who led the U.S. Third Infantry Division that captured Baghdad in April 2003.

The only sensitivity you should be thinking about is how bad your ass is going to feel after your opponent beats you with that statement in your next election, shit-for-brains.

Blount, now the Army's assistant deputy chief of staff, said the Army had sufficient small caliber ammunition – 5.56mm, 7.62mm and .50 caliber – to conduct current operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere without using the Israeli bullets.

Use them anyway, they're new.

But some Israeli military generals were upset. IDF Col. Moshe Lesheme told WND, "Israel has been at the forefront of the war on terror since it founding 50 years ago. We pioneered many of the anti-terror and urban-warfare techniques that the U.S. military has no problem using in Iraq and Afghanistan. Israeli firms have created an enormous amount of military technology that enhanced the American military. And now suddenly our bullets are illegitimate?"

Only to the politically correct fuckweasels of the US government.

"It is decisions like these that feed the Palestinian propaganda machine and demean Israel," said Morton Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America. "It makes it seem like there's a difference between terrorism against Israelis and terrorism against anyone else. And that is simply unacceptable."

Sorry Morton, but according to the state department, terrorism agains zionists is fine, but not for terrorism against anyone else. And God help you if you try and kill some of thier favorite muzzies. They are like a mama bear when you do that.

Artificial muscles for superhuman soldiers

Jo Revill
Sunday March 19, 2006
The Observer

Scientists have developed artificial, super-strength muscles powered by alcohol and hydrogen, which could eventually be used to make much better prosthetic limbs. The artificial muscles are 100 times more powerful than the body's own, and researchers believe they could be modified one day to use in 'exoskeletons', to give superhuman strength to certain professions such as firefighters, soldiers and astronauts.
Two types of muscle are being investigated by US researchers at the Nanotech Institute at the University of Texas in Dallas, working with colleagues from South Korea. Writing in the journal Science, they explain that both kinds release the chemical energy of fuels, such as hydrogen and alcohol, while consuming oxygen. The muscles are replicating the first stage in breathing, by taking in oxygen. The existing versions of these artificial muscles are driven by batteries.

Oh, so they are planning on using them in exoskeletons for people OTHER than soldiers?

However, neither of the types developed by researchers looks even slightly like a normal muscle - they are made up of wires, cantilevers and glass bottles.

Give them time.

I am fully in favor of developing this technology. Haveing an artifical limb sucks, even if it is motorised. Ask Jesse Sullivan.


I despise thee.

Beer test.

It's stupid and all over.

Killian's Red

(66% dark & bitter, 66% working class, 33% genuine)

I'll start with a quote from a review of Killian's Red that I think will reflect on you, too: "deep flavor, somewhat mild, with a moderate head." It goes on to talk about a "light caramel odor," and while that sounds nice, I don't think I can go that far in my analysis.

Overall, Killian's is a very good beer. The only thing that kinda sucks is that even though it says "Irish Red" on the bottle, this stuff's made by Coors, not peaty old Dubliners. I guess that's my way of telling you that you scored on the lower side of the "genuine" part of my test. Here's my guess: you're a sensible, likeable person, and you're popular among different groups of people. The test probably read that as a slight superficiality.

Personality-wise, you have refined tastes (after all, this stuff is kind of expensive), but you know how to savor what you get. Your personality isn't exactly bubbly, but you're well-liked nonetheless. Your sense of humor is rather dark, but that's just another way to say sophisticated, right?

As a real George Killian would say: Sl�inte! Cheers!

I heard a commercial twice on the way home. It said that someone dies from smoking every 8 seconds or so. Lets run the numbers and see whats up.

60/8= 7.5 Deaths per minute
60*7.5= 450 Deaths per hour
24*450= 10,800 per day
10,800*365.25= 3,944,700 per year.

According to wrong diagnosis
Deaths from Smoking: 440,000 annual deaths each year are smoking-associated (CDC). Or about one every 72 seconds.

The BBC says,
Almost five million people died from smoking-related diseases across the world in 2000, researchers estimate.

Yes, I am aware they have an agenda.

Whohoo! Population reduction!
Definite benifit to smoking, it reduced population.

Uh oh. We have dissent from the anti-anti-tobacco crowd.

At this point, I stop caring.

Windy day.

On a windy day, DONT SET LEAVES ON FIRE! You would think my Dad knows this, of course he "Could keep the fire from spreading". BULLSHIT! Within 5 minutes the fire had gone from a pile of leaves to covering a ten foot wide 20 foot long streach of grass, with a natural gas tank on the far end of it. We did manage to put out the fire around the tank, after Gabe and I got ourselves some new sunburns. Too much grass, too few people, and an old man who won't contemplate the worst case scenario.

In the end, he got his wish of burning all the grass off an acre from the other side of the drive. I fricken mow it every year, why burn it off? I swear, he is a pyro.

BTW the a fire department guy showed up (twice, apperently he checked out Dad's story and came back to "discuss it") and a guy from the Sherrifs department.

If Gabe and I want leaves burned, we can do it ourselves.

More lefty stupidity.

Kleenex Workers
By Barbara Ehrenreich
May 2006 Issue

Was it only three years ago that some of our puffed up patriots were denouncing the French as “cheese-eating surrender monkeys,” too fattened on Camembert to stub out their Gaulois and get down with the war on Iraq? Well, take another look at the folks who invented the word liberté. Throughout the month of March and beyond, they were demonstrating, rioting, and burning up cars to preserve a right Americans can only dream of: the right not to be fired at an employer’s whim.

Yes, the right to bankrupt your employer so EVERYONE gets laid off in the end.

The French government’s rationale for its new labor law was impeccable from an economist’s standpoint: Make it easier for employers to fire people and they will be more willing to hire people. So why was Paris burning?

Because the frogsguaranteedunteed pay for as little work as possible, as much paid vaction as possible, and zero chance of being replaced by someone with a better work ethic.

What corporations call "“flexibility"”-—the right to dispose of workers at will-—is what workers experience as disposability, not to mention insecurity and poverty. The French students who were tossing Molotov cocktails didn’t want to become what they call -“a Kleenex generation-—used and tossed away when the employer decides he needs a fresh one.

Perhaps they could actually WORK for thier employers and make themselves valuable to the company?

You may recognize in the French government's reasoning the same arguments Americans hear whenever we raise a timid plea for a higher minimum wage or a halt to the steady erosion of pensions and health benefits: "“What?"” scream the economists who flack for the employing class. "If you do anything, anything at all, to offend or discomfit the employers, they will respond by churlishly failing to employ you! Unemployment will rise, and you lacking, of course, the health care and other benefits provided by the French welfare state —will quickly spiral down into starvation."”

Higher minimum wage means higher prices. The only people who win are the tax collectors. If you stupidly make yourself unemployable with demands, why WOULD anyone want to employ you?

French youth weren'’t buying this, probably because they know where the Â'Anglo-Saxon model,'” as they call it, leads. If you have to give up job security to get a job, what next? Will the pampered employers be inspired to demand a suspension of health and safety regulations? Will they start requiring their workers to polish their shoes while hand-feeding them hot-buttered croissants? Non to all that, the French kids said.

What is next is you show up on time, do the work you are supposed to and, if you get done early, ask what else needs to be done. Ah yes, the "pampered employers" who see a large chunk of thier workforce off on vacation for just about anything, high taxes, a government that is largly hostile to them, and since when have french workers actually bothered to shine thier employers shoes? I highly doubt that the boss would demand such a thing.

Of course, the French weren'’t entirely fair in calling their nemesis the 'Anglo-Saxon model.'” It'’s the specifically American model they have to fear. While France was in turmoil, I was in England, ancestral home of the Anglo-Saxon race, giving a talk when a fellow in the audience asked me how people could be fired without '“due process.'” In the U.K., a person who feels she has been wrongfully dismissed can turn to an employment appeals tribunal and, beyond that, to the courts. I had to explain that in the United States, you can be fired for just about anything: having a '“bad attitude,'” which can mean having a funny look on your face, or just turning out to be '“not a good fit.'”

Hate to burst your moonbat bubble, but you can sue for wrongful termination here in the States as well. If your attitude is bad and you have been warned about it, in writing, repeatedly, you deserve to lose your job. "Not a good fit" generally means that you will win your court case. Unless of course they are using it as PC speech to say that your a disgusting slob.

Years ago, there was a theory on the American left that someone-—maybe it was me-—termed Worsism: the worse things get, the more likely people will be to rise up and demand their rights. But in America, at least, the worse things get, the harder it becomes to even imagine any kind of resistance. The fact that you can be fired "at will"-—the will of the employer, that is-—freezes employees into terrified obedience. Add to that the fact that job loss is accompanied by a loss of access to health care, and you get a kind of captive mentality bordering on the kinkily masochistic: Beat me, insult me, double my workload, but please don't set me free!

Lets see, beat me will land your employer in jail, insult me, will win you a harassment suit, double my workload and I quit. I see this lady has never had a real job in her life, like most jounalists.

Far be it from me to advocate the burning of cars and smashing of store windows. But why are American students sucking their thumbs while the Bush Administration proposes a $12.7 billion cut in student loans?

Because they know damn well that if they need the cash they can go get a fucking job.

Where is the outrage over the massive layoffs at Ford, Hewlett-Packard, and dozens of other major companies?

Because the American public understands that buisnesses sometimes have to cut costs or go out of buisness. Better to lose a limb than die of gangrene.

And is the poverty-stricken quarter of the population too stressed by their mounting bills and multiple jobs to protest cuts in Medicaid and already pathetic housing subsidies?

Life's a bitch. Want better oppertunities? Go join the service, or get an education, or look for a BETTER JOB.

Compared to those '“surrender monkeys,'” we'’re looking like a lot of soggy used Kleenex.

Only if you are too lazy, or stupid to look for better opertunities. I have a semi-friend who is working less than 30 hours a week at minimum wage. I told him where to look for a better job. Too damn lazy to actually go down and try.

Barbara Ehrenreich is a columnist for The Progressive. Her latest book is '“Bait and Switch: The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream.' Her website is

She's a fucking stupid libtard, is what she is.

3. The Two Towers
4. Robin Hood (old disney classic, with the animals)

Four places I have lived:
1. Wabasha, MN (2 days)
2. North of Elk Mound, WI
3. In Elk Mound, WI
4. Eau Claire, WI

Four TV shows I love to watch:

4. Potatoes

Four places I would rather be right now:
1. Anywhere fun.
2. Mars
3. Florida (before it gets too hot)
4. Texas (but only if I can leave)

Four people who I have tagged that I think will respond:



If protestors are so concerned with trying to convince other people that thier view is correct, why do they steal, destroy, interfear with, and vandalize other peoples property?

Are they really convinced that the people they victimize are going to change thier ways? Personally, I would just get pissed and yell at them.

UT professor says death is imminent

From Drudge

By Jamie Mobley
The Gazette-Enterprise

Published April 2, 2006

AUSTIN - A University of Texas professor says the Earth would be better off with 90 percent of the human population dead.

90 percent is a bit much. I would go with all the hippies and lefties first and see if that doesn't help. If not, I would continue on into sections of humanity that threaten everyone else. Like muslims.

"Every one of you who gets to survive has to bury nine," Eric Pianka cautioned students and guests at St. Edward's University on Friday. Pianka's words are part of what he calls his "doomsday talk" - a 45-minute presentation outlining humanity's ecological misdeeds and Pianka's predictions about how nature, or perhaps humans themselves, will exterminate all but a fraction of civilization.

Naturally, Pianka intends to be the one burying 9 of his cohorts.

Though his statements are admittedly bold, he's not without abundant advocates. But what may set this revered biologist apart from other doomsday soothsayers is this: Humanity's collapse is a notion he embraces.

Like the followers of a certain pedophile prophet.

Indeed, his words deal, very literally, on a life-and-death scale, yet he smiles and jokes candidly throughout the lecture. Disseminating a message many would call morbid, Pianka's warnings are centered upon awareness rather than fear.

And yet, he advocates the death of 5,856,237,564 people.

"This is really an exciting time," he said Friday amid warnings of apocalypse, destruction and disease. Only minutes earlier he declared, "Death. This is what awaits us all. Death." Reflecting on the so-called Ancient Chinese Curse, "May you live in interesting times," he wore, surprisingly, a smile.

The man has serious mental issues I think.

So what's at the heart of Pianka's claim?

6.5 billion humans is too many.

And how has he decided this? Because he eco-friends tell him so?

In his estimation, "We've grown fat, apathetic and miserable," all the while leaving the planet parched.

The solution?

A 90 percent reduction.

So.. if I choose to wipe out less than well loved (by me) sections of the world he would have absolutly no problem?

That's 5.8 billion lives - lives he says are turning the planet into "fat, human biomass." He points to an 85 percent swell in the population during the last 25 years and insists civilization is on the brink of its downfall - likely at the hand of widespread disease.

Tell that to the faces of those you would have die. "Yes, sir, you are just fat human biomass of no use to anyone."

"[Disease] will control the scourge of humanity," Pianka said. "We're looking forward to a huge collapse."

May you be the first infected.

But don't tell local "citizen scientist" Forrest Mims to quietly swallow Pianka's call to awareness. Mims says it's an "abhorrent death wish" and contends he has "no choice but to take a stand."

No shit?

Mims attended the educator's doomsday presentation at the Texas Academy of Science's annual meeting March 2-4. There, the organization honored Pianka as its 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist - another issue Mims vocally opposes.

Let the Texans explain that one.

"This guy is a loose cannon to believe that worldwide genocide is the only answer," said Mims, who filed two formal petitions with the academy following the meeting.

Joining the crusade, James Pitts, who recieved a Ph.D. in physics from UT-Austin, became the second to publicly chastise Pianka when he filed a complaint Saturday with the UT board of regents. He insists a state university is no place to disseminate such views.


He writes:

"Pianka's message does not fall within the realm of his professional competence as a biologist, because it is a normative claim, not a descriptive one. Pianka is encouraged to use his ecological expertise to predict the likely consequences of certain technological and reproductive strategies, but to evaluate some as good, bad, or worthy of prevention by genocide is the realm of philosophy or political science, not science. His message falls no more within his professional competence than it would for a physicist to teach religion in class or a musician to encourage racism."

Maybe he should start his own death cult?

But Pianka, a 38-year UT educator, maintains he's not campaigning for genocide. He likens mankind's story to an unbridled party on a luxury cruise liner. The fun's going strong on the upper deck, he says. But as crowds blindly absorb the festivities, many fail to notice the ship is sinking.

Where is the proof?

"The biggest enemy we face is anthropocentrism," he said, describing the belief system in which humans are the central element of the universe. "This is that common attitude that everything on this Earth was put here for [human] use."

It was. It's in the Bible. Get used to it.

To Pianka, a human life is no more valuable than any other - a lizard, a bison, a rhino. And as humans reproduce, the demand for resources like food, water and energy becomes more than the Earth can sustain, he says.

If that were true, wouldn't we have died by now? Seems we CAN make the Earth sustain us.

Ken Wilkins, a Baylor University biology professor and associate dean, agrees the inevitability of a crashing point is unarguable.

"The human population is growing," he said. "We will see a point when we reach the carrying capacity - there aren't enough resources."

At that point we get into a gut busting war.

But resources aren't the only threat, Pianka says. It's the Ebola virus he deems most capable of wide scale decimation.

If he starts ranting about spreading it, whoever has the rights to old Bond movies may sue him.

"Humans are so dense (in population) that they constitute a perfect substrate for an epidemic," he says.

He contends Ebola is merely an evolutionary step away from escaping the confines of Africa. And should an outbreak occur, Pianka assuredly says humanity will quickly come to a "grinding halt."

At least the places that the virus can get to. All the more reason to seal off our borders and kill anything that tries to cross.

The professor's not the only one who can articulate this concept. Because Pianka includes his doomsday material in his coursework, Ebola and its potential play a notable role in some students' studies. A syllabus for one course reads:

"Although [Ebola Zaire] Kills 9 out of 10 people, outbreaks have so far been unable to become epidemics because they are currently spread only by direct physical contact with infected blood. However, a closely-related virus that kills monkeys, Ebola Reston, is airborne, and it is only a matter of time until Ebola Zaire evolves the capacity to be airborne."

Why do I get the feeling he would like to develop Ebola Reston into an airborne virus?

It is here that some say Pianka ventures from provocative food for thought to, as Wilkins said, "very extreme material" that violate many people's views - including his own - about the treatment of human life. While many praise Pianka's boldness and scientific know-how, others say he crosses an ethical line in his treatment of Ebola's viability as a killer.

Wait until he begins to develop his almighty "cure" for what ails the world.

In an evaluation of Pianka's course - performed anonymously in keeping with university policy - one student offered:

"Though I agree that conservation biology is of utmost importance to the world, I do not think that preaching that 90 percent of the human population should die of Ebola is the most effective means of encouraging conservation awareness."

Yeah, telling 90 percent of your audience that they have to die, generally wont win you converts.

Mims says he's seen countless doomsday predictions come and go. But Pianka's is different, Mims said. Pianka, he insists, exhibits genuine cause for alarm.

Mims worries fertile young minds with a thirst for knowledge may develop into enthusiastic supporters of a deadly disease, advocating the fall of humanity.

Members of the death cult, now trained at the University of Texas.

"He recommended airborne Ebola as an ideal killing virus," Mims said. "He showed slides of the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse and human skulls. He joked about requiring universal sterilization. It reminded me of a futuristic science fiction movie with a crazed scientist planning the death of humanity."

Or a Bond movie.

But as confident as Mims is in his assessment, he faces one unarguable fact: Most of Pianka's former students are bursting with praise. Their in-class evaluations celebrate his ideas with words like "the most incredible class I ever had" and "Pianka is a GOD!"

Indicating to me that they are deluded fools who have no real concept of God.

Mims counters their ovation with the story of a Texas Lutheran University student who attended the Academy of Science lecture. Brenna McConnell, a biology senior, said she and others in the audience "had not thought seriously about overpopulation issues and a feasible solution prior to the meeting." But though McConnell arrived at the event with little to say on the issue, she returned to Seguin with a whole new outlook.

Must.. kill.. humanity.. for.. the.. fluffy.. bunnies...

An entry to her online blog captures her initial response to what's become a new conviction:

"[Pianka is] a radical thinker, that one!" she wrote. "I mean, he's basically advocating for the death for all but 10 percent of the current population. And at the risk of sounding just as radical, I think he's right."

So.. are you volunteering to be offed?

Today, she maintains the Earth is in dire straits. And though she's decided Ebola isn't the answer, she's still considering other deadly viruses that might take its place in the equation.

And what does she inteand to do with her reasearch, I wonder?

"Maybe I just see the virus as inevitable because it's the easiest answer to this problem of overpopulation," she said.

Have you tried War?

Though listeners like McConnell may walk away with a deadly message, Pianka maintains this is inconsistent with his lecture. One UT official said Pianka is likely well within his rights as a tenured educator.

Once again, a tenured nutcase gets away with it.

The 1940 Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure - a set of guidelines recognized nationwide - guarantees college professors vast classroom liberties. But Neal Armstrong, vice provost for faculty affairs at UT, said even this freedom is not without limits.

It has no limits if you don't slap people down for doing shit like this. Kind of like the UN telling rouge nations what to do, no effect until you kick them around.

"Faculty members have the right of free speech like anyone else," he said. "In the classroom, they're free to express their views. There is the expectation, though, that in public - especially when speaking on controversial topics - they must make every effort to be clear that they are not speaking on behalf of the university."

If they are on university time, they damn well are speaking for the university.

Students should be able to discern on their own the validity of views like Pianka's, Armstrong said. But if allegations of Pianka actively advocating human death were to be confirmed, he said "there might be some discussion about the appropriateness of that subject."

Maybe you should check it out instead of waiting for the students to start carrying out his plans?

"I would hope that's not what's intended," he said. "I don't think that's appropriate for the classroom, but that's my personal statement."

Get someone in there with a recorder and don't bother to tell Pianka about it.

Robert K. Jansen, chair of the section of integrated biology under which Pianka is classified, said his understanding of the doomsday material left no cause for concern.

Maybe Jansen is also an enviro-loon.

"It's important for students to get all opinions, and they have to do that on a daily basis," he said. To hold a classroom's attention, Jansen says educators must often "speak their mind" in a fashion bold enough to garner a bit of shock.

I think he is going a bit far.

The Texas Academy of Science uses a similar approach in defending its decision to honor Pianka with the Distinguished Scientist award. Though TAS offered no direct comment to the Gazette-Enterprise, an email sent from TAS President David Marsh to Mims in response to Mims first letter of protest reads:

"We select the DTS speaker based on his/her academic credentials and contributions to science. We do not mandate the subject he/she decides to address, nor will we ever. I would suggest that one of the purposes of any such presentation is to stimulate discussion - which indeed it did."

So... if I wanted to start a discussion of how best to carry out the final solution, I can win a DS award?

In his petitions, Mims inquires about the group's stance on Pianka's talk, asking if the recent honor should be interpreted as an endorsement by TAS. Marsh responded firmly, saying the award does not represent any formal backing of Pianka's ideas.

Formal no, but informal? Maybe.

But despite the academy's flat denial of any wrongdoing, Mims maintains his stance. He said thus far, he's seen no response to the second petition.

"I completely agree with one assertion made several times by Dr. Pianka: ‘The public is not ready to hear that he hopes 90 percent of them will be exterminated by disease,'" Mims said.

Because most of them would rather he be extermainated first.

McConnell said the TAS audience, unlike Mims, was in awe of Pianka's words. They offered a standing ovation, and enthusiastically applauded Pianka's position, Mims said.

I am sure that the membership of the National Socialist Party felt the same way, back in the 30's.

"There was a good deal of shock and just plain astonishment at what he had to say," the student said. "Not many folk come out and talk about the end of the human population in as candid of a manner as he did. Dr. Pianka received a standing ovation at the end of his talk, if that says anything. What he had to say was radical, no question about it, but that is not to say that at least some of what he had to say is not true."

Sounds like you are a member of the cult already.

Though Pianka turned down requests for a sit-down interview, he maintains he is not advocating human death.

He's not? Then what is all this 90% of the world dying off mean then?

Does he believe nature will bring about this promised devastation? Or is humanity's own dissemination of a deadly virus the only answer? And more importantly, is this the motive behind his talks?

Responding to these very questions, Pianka said, "Good terrorists would be taking [Ebola Roaston and Ebola Zaire] so that they had microbes they could let loose on the Earth that would kill 90 percent of people."

What would the Evil terrorists be doing then?

As of press time, Pitts - who sent his appeal via email Saturday - had received no response from the university, but he says, "It's too early for any responses to have been made." Meanwhile, Pianka urges humanity to heed his call to be prepared, saying "we're going to be hunters and gatherers again real soon."

Gathering ammo to hunt this assclown down, I hope.

"This is gonna happen in your lifetime," he told his St. Edward's audience. "Do you wanna go there? We've already gone there. We waited too long."

Shut up.

April fools jokes.

If you think your good at them, check this out.

The flag shit that is going on.

1. We are the United States of America, not Mexico. The Mexican flag has no buisness being on the same pole as an American flag much less above it.

2. There are laws about flying the flag.

That no disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America -- the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

1. The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
2. The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
3. The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
4. The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.
5. The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
6. The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.
7. The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
8. The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
9. The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.
10. No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.
11. The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

3. People who want to call themselves Mexicans should move back to Mexico where they belong.

4. If you don't like living under our laws, move to Canada, I am sure they will absoulutly love you.
