Just Another Human

3 posts in this topic

Hello! :) My name is Charlie, a housewife, naturalist, tinkerer, and wildlife rescuer living in the Ozarks with my boyfriend/husband. I am very protective of my family, every animal and plant that has touched my life, and I will do almost anything to keep them safe and healthy. Actually, I almost just attacked my mother-in-law's drug addict neighbor for piling a bunch of trash on one of her garden beds. The fruit and oxygen my plants create are much more important than the meth those twits cook up.

I apologize if I seem a tad misanthropic, but our species has absolutely destroyed the ecosystem that supports us. You can't be on top without a sturdy foundation beneath you. The birds, bees, and trees are our foundation. My husband and I travel Missouri/Illinois in our trailer to help give these other creatures a fighting chance. Clean up trash that can't/shouldn't decompose into soil, educate other humans about the importance of our fellow organisms, treat those suffering from (usually human-induced) injury or illness, then leave the land in a better place than we found it.

You could say we're animal rights activists or "angry hippies". We are supposed to eat other animals, it is a great honor to eat and be eaten, but we aren't supposed to systematically sterilize other creatures or manipulate their DNA. As tiny apes on a tiny rock in space, we will never comprehend the complexity of the Universe that created us. Our gene-splicing and atom-splitting will be our downfall. The bigger the cities are, the harder they fall, while the folks on North Sentinel Island have lived in peace with their land for tens of thousands of years.

We could learn a lot from them. :)

    • I've found that selecting a large baker type potato, for "sock use", makes an excellent dog deterrent, or for conking someone that needs an attitude adjustment. You can either bake the evidence and eat it, or, if feeling charitable, give it away to someone who will gladly dispose of the evidence for you. I wielded one many times when I had two paper routes as a young boy, even smacked a hippie once who tried to jack my bicycle. I hit him so hard with a giant Baker that it knocked him down. Not too bad for a 12 year old....

    • Here is my guesstimating, thinking the Rockefellers, Bill Gates, etc are paying for this.They have billion$ of dollar$, a few millions of dollar$ is just a drop in the bucket for them. Not to mention these Alexa devices are eves dropping/ listening in your conversation all the time at your dwelling. Imagin talking to family member/s, friend/s, business partner/s about some idea, then you find out it was stolen from you, right under you noses. Inventions are stolen from people all the time, it’s the registered patten that counts the most, even then you better register the patten in almost every country, if you want to protect your ideas. Even iPhones & ipads are listening devices , someone is listening if not recording every word your saying.  Freedom, what freedom, their is non, we are tied to an invincible rope if you think your not your highly mistaken. IMHO !
    • The thing I like to ask the people who are so enthralled with this tech....So this technology is so very useful, powerful, and can basically run your life for you, it was designed and developed is maintained, expanded and improved constantly....but...the "service" is free and only requires a purchase of under $50 or is simply part of the free phone your cellphone provider handed you. Who paid for this and continues to? How does something like this become a billion dollar industry by charging nothing?
    • AI is gonna be a doom if were not careful...
