Saw a documentary on mutant animals.

This was one of the examples. Under captivity the giraffe in question lived a long time but the documentary stressed that in the wild the giraffe would have starved to death at a young age. (Not to mention the mother probably would have left it to die at birth)

Is it cruel to prolong the life of a deformed animal? I personally think so. As humans we have compassion for our own people when they are born with defects (except for jaqeero :evilgrin: ). But animals treat this in a completely different way, in one example in the video a farmer prevented a mother pig from smothering a two faced piglet. So is it normal for humans to extend their treatment of their own young to animals?

Just curious what others think.

P.S. I really don't care about animal rights in general. I'm talking specifically about infanticide in the animal kingdom. Go hug a tree, hippie!

Some mutations are advantageous, most mutations aren't. The survival of the creature depends on this. This is called "natural selection" or "survival of the fittest". Nature "selects" these mutations according to cold and dispassionate rules. This is where man and his passions conflict with nature. This creature is entitled to survive because man chooses to support a defect where natural selection would not. If the mutation is inheritable that giraffe should not be allowed to breed. Nature's judgement is better than man's in this case and might even be less cruel.

It's not just guns that are prohibited but any knife, tool, camera, memory device, laptop (unless listed and registered), personal tools, non-contractor owned devices or tools, that are prohibited on nuclear resource sites. This is a federal requirement. If you want a list of "prohibited items" I can probably locate the list I was given. In my job I have to deal with all kinds of issues like this. The guys guarding one recent place I was at wore desert camo, toted AR's and even searched the car at the gate. Not your average Pinkerton dudes.

Answer NO when asked if you are bringing any prohibited items.
Serious stuff.
I had to list and have serial numbers for all test equipment and PC's and hard drives.
You can't even bring in a Leatherman tool because it has a blade.

9mm is a minimum round for a CC wep. Nobody but a punk-ass gangsta would carry a .22 cal. You carry .40 cal. if your serious and .45 cal. for one-shot, one-kill. Daddy smokes big fatties.

No problems mate. The whole post about the Savanna's was tongue in cheek anyway. But it was probably a little too light since nobody commented on females being the inventors of speech and checking six for lions before dining on road kill.

Wild maggots shouldn't be ingested. Any food with maggots in it is rife with disease. Since, as you mentioned, maggots feed on rotting meat, they carry plenty of ways to kill us. What you're referring to is a recent type of alternative medicine which involves maggots that have been bred and sterilized in order to make their use safe. Letting a fly from the wild lay eggs in some gangrenous toe is probably a death sentence.

I never suggested you should eat the maggots, I specifically said you should eat the meat NOT infested with the maggots because it was the freshest of a carcass.

As for wild maggots and gangrene being a death sentence, it's simply not true.

"Military physicians have observed that soldiers whose wounds had become colonized with maggots experienced significantly less morbidity and mortality than soldiers whose wounds had not become colonized. These physicians included Napoleon’s general surgeon, Baron Dominique Larrey. Larrey reported during France's Egyptian campaign in Syria, 1798–1801, that certain species of fly consumed only dead tissue and helped wounds to heal.

Dr. Joseph Jones, a ranking Confederate medical officer during the American Civil War, is quoted as follows, "I have frequently seen neglected wounds ... filled with maggots ... as far as my experience extends, these worms eat only dead tissues, and do not injure specifically the well parts." The first therapeutic use of maggots is credited to a second Confederate medical officer Dr. J.F. Zacharias, who reported during the American Civil War that, "Maggots ... in a single day would clean a wound much better than any agents we had at our command ... I am sure I saved many lives by their use." He recorded a high survival rate in patients he treated with maggots."

Modern maggot therapy uses sterilized maggots not specifically because it's safer but because it keeps doctors and hospitals from getting sued for osteogenic infections if they DIDN'T use sterile maggots.

In the mean time the men learned that it was easier to capture game and fence it in than to chase it around all day long in the hot sun just to kill it,

I disagree. Have you ever met a cow? They basically beg to be fenced to and fed. You really don't need to "hunt" them, you can dig a big hole and wait and one will eventually wander over and fall the fuck in on it's own. Literally, cockroaches are smarter than cows. :D

Have you ever corralled a wildebeest? A gazelle? A water buffalo? Notice i used the word "game" not cow. Bovine are the product of thousands of years of domestication and selective breeding, they are stupid because they are born that way as man designed them to be. Cattle, genus Bos taurus, are descended from Aurochs.

The American Indians had thousands of years to domesticate Bison but they didn't do it, probably because it was just as easy to stalk them from the periphery of the huge herds. BTW, those pictures and statues of the Noble Native Americans riding ponies up to the side of the thundering Bisons to lay and arrow into his shoulders? Total falsehood until the era of the great westward migration of the Anglos in North America. The horse is not indigenous to North America and NNA's didn't use them until the 18th century. Horses are from Europe. Wild mustangs? An invasive species bread from escaped/released horses from European ancestors. The Sioux people had never seen a horse until the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804.

"By about 15,000 years ago, Equus ferus was a widespread holarctic species. Horse bones from this time period, the late Pleistocene, are found in Europe, Eurasia, Beringia, and North America. Yet between 10,000 and 7,600 years ago, the horse became extinct in North America and rare elsewhere. The reasons for this extinction are not fully known, but one theory notes that extinction in North America paralleled human arrival. Another theory points to climate change, noting that approximately 12,500 years ago, the grasses characteristic of a steppe ecosystem gave way to shrub tundra, which was covered with unpalatable plants."

The Mongols, renowned horsemen of Northern Asia and the Stepps of Eurasia, drink a liquor made from horse milk. From what I understand it makes for a good buzz.

Let me extend my comment about what is natural human food. When we are born, the only natural food we can digest is human milk. All mammals survive best when fed their mother's milk. There comes a point in that creature's life when milk is no longer normal nor sufficient for that creature. In the case of humans, the natural food becomes fruits, vegetables, legumes and grains. Mostly raw. Meat is another but if you observe the great apes, especially gorillas, you will observe they do not eat meat. There is no evidence to believe early humans need meat in their diet to live a healthy life or that natural selection caused mankind to mature faster because he ate meat. Meat just tastes good and hunting gave the "boys" something to do all day while the women tended camp and rested from a strenuous night of being fruitful and multiplying. They also got to gossip with each other about what the Jone's were doing next door, which is why we evolved as talking apes. :)

In the mean time the men learned that it was easier to capture game and fence it in than to chase it around all day long in the hot sun just to kill it, drag it home to momma to cook, only to do it all over again the next day. Cows, pigs and goats in the mean time became "slaves" to humans desires. Unless you were a Muslim, then you neglected the pig in favor of the goat. In that case, goats were handy to have around when the harem was all in sync and you didn't want to deal with all that PMS shit. Men then discovered the interesting dangly bits underneath the cows and what fun you could have when the bull had done his job and the cow was lactating, post-partem. The part of the milk that make it tasty is the fat - same as in the meat - so that's why we like it. Take the fat out and all you have is some dirty water with a white hue. Goats milk is even more tasty because it has a higher fat content can bovine milk.

As far as essential nutrients are concerned, everything an adult human needs, including protein, LDL, BHA, calcium, phosphorus, vitamins and all essential trace minerals, can be obtained by eating green vegetables, fruits, nuts and legumes. I am not a vegetarian, so don't think I have an agenda. But the FDA and all that propaganda about milk and the four essential food groups is just that, propaganda. We have learned to pasteurize milk because whole milk full of listeria can kill you faster than a bad piece of meat full of maggots. In fact, maggots have proven useful in cleaning necrotic tissue out of severe wounds where other treatments would have failed. Maggots don't like fresh meat, they like the dead stuff. So if you are starving in the savanna and you stumble upon a dead gazelle, eat the meat the maggots aren't into yet, that will be the freshest stuff. But check for lions and hyenas first, otherwise you will be the freshest meat on the dinner table this evening.

But don't drink the milk, you don't need it.

P.S. I also enjoy a nice bowl of cereal with bananas and 2% for breakfast.

There is nothing "natural" about humans drinking the milk of creatures other than humans.
Humans are also not evolved to consume human milk beyond infancy once they are weaned.

Hey Zeppelin,

Got any doozies on guys with big dicks?

...would love to hear what they say about me.

John Holmes, renowned for his big dick, died from complications due to AIDS which he acquired while engaging in gay sex to support his cocaine addiction.
Several of his female co-stars in porn films died from AIDS after being infected by him.

I decided to try to find more on this beast.
Initially presented in 2009 as a rather eccentric architect's idea, one of the world's narrowest houses will be built in Warsaw, Poland. Referred to as an "impossible house" by its designer Jakub Szczesny of Centrala design studio, the house will be 152 cm (60 in) across in its widest spot on the outside. It's located in the center of Warsaw in a small slot between two buildings, and will be officially defined as an art installation, as it does not meet any legal standards of construction in Poland.

And it turns out, that's not a TV, it's a window.

One of the world's narrowest houses (only 152cm / 59.8in wide) will be built in Poland.

How do you get in that house and where is the wide screen tv  8)

It looks like it has retracting stairs. The green pillow is at the far end of the "floor" that is the stairs.

My bad, i meant:
The owner of a Segway died on a Segway.


True. But it was British millionaire Jimi Heselden, chairman of Hesco Bastion, the company that bought Segway, Inc., who died in an accident involving a Segway on September 27, 2010. He fell off a cliff while riding it. He was the owner of a Segway. :)

Dean Kamen, the inventor of the device, is still alive.

Yes, he's replacing the original driver with the wh.dll, I suppose having stuff in the z-buffer might cause problems when the new DLL gets loaded or as you described, it works better that way. The instructions were probably a contingency ensuring the user didn't have it set to 1 before activating it.
