"Questioning is a vital part of science. In fact, scientists are more likely to disagree with each other than to agree; the recent debate with regards to climate and hurricane intensity demonstrates this. And I don't consider science to be a religion. Last time I checked not many wars have been wages in the name of science due to self-proclaimed clerics stating their science God has a bigger dick than other science Gods."

... Found this. It was posted on the typical CF Hardcore community, and then x-posted to stupid_free. As a bit of backstory - I was and still am constantly teased by other children. They were rarely punished for their actions towards me. I felt so bad that I didn't even want to go to school anymore. I have an anxiety disorder and very thin skin then. Then after a bit of surfing time on the interwebs, I realized I could fight back. That there were other people like me. I feel slightly confident that if I did go back to regular off-line school again, I could handle it. These two messages were posted by the same person, and it made me feel... happy. Uncomprehendably happy.

... WTF?Collapse )

I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and
self-contain'd,
I stand and look at them long and long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of
owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of
years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable...

... I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.

You will hardly know who I am or what I mean,
But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
And filter and fibre your blood.

Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged,
Missing me one place search another,
I stop somewhere waiting for you.

Has anyone seen this yet?

The sheer stupidity of the statements - the first woman likes to draw the Nazi symbol because it's fun and yet says that she's respectful of other people's feelings - the old man in the second part says that he's more attractive than Denzel Washington just because he's white. I agree with Louis that he's delusional. He thinks that if a black man is out of line he should be lynched. "I don't want to hang one at a time - I want them all lynched." One of the guys admits to being a cocaine kingpin.

She says that kids would hate her because of her last name and that makes them racists, which makes fucking no sense because being a Nazi is being a racist. He wouldn't have a Jew in his house with his daughter. And then he complains that whites have heavier punishments than blacks. I'm... disgusted.

Essay on T.E.D.s

Turtle Excluder Devices


Turtle excluder devices are perhaps one of the most innovative devices that have been created with regards to the safety of marine animals. Turtle excluders, also known as a T.E.D. are simplistic yet efficient, result in no loss of the shellfish, and help preserve an already greatly endangered marine reptile.

The first thing to consider is simplicity. A turtle excluder device is a simple grate of spaced bars that do not allow turtles and other large marine animals to pass through. Shrimp can pass through quite easily, but turtles that are trapped cannot, and they do not end up in the net – they are ejected. Turtles are not fast swimmers, and as such they cannot avoid the trawl nets. This is a simple, efficient, and cost-effective way to keep the turtles from entering the net.

The second thing to consider is that this method does not result in the loss of shellfish. So, it does not negatively affect the fisher. This would make the law of having them in the nets much easier to enforce, as the fishermen cannot say in defense that their nets are being deprived from shellfish and profit.

The third thing to consider is that a T.E.D. are made to protect – and do protect – endangered animals that are essential to the ecosystem. With a T.E.D. installed on every net, the turtle population goes up, helping their species. And because of new modifications in the light of recent study, it also helps preserve the greatly endangered leatherback turtle, along with several species of large shark.

As you can see, the turtle species would benefit greatly from the installation and regulation of a T.E.D. on every fisher’s net, along with making a T.E.D. mandatory in the production of these nets. This simple method can help save endangered sea animals that are tossed aside as excess trash.

Hello, Spunky Eevee! Just corrected that chapter you sent me. I apologize for the double-space - it was single-space on my Microsoft Word document, but it seems that the whole thing got b0rked when I copied and pasted it to my journal. Oh, well. Double-space is better than no space.


Just a few things I want to cover.

1. Grammatically, you're improving in leaps and bounds. As a note, though, after someone speaks you want to use the ENTER key to make a space. Also, if your character is talking and the speech ends with something similar to '- said' then you want to end the speech with a comma. You also want to insert commas where there would naturally be a pause in the speech. Here's an example.

---

"Hello," said Bob, idly ruffing the back of his black hair with his right hand.

"Goodbye," said Steve. "See you later!"

---

2. Please, please, do not be afraid to use detail! I encourage it! I will warn you if you use too much. In the beginning, try describing the scene. Are they walking along a dirt road surrounded by trees or a paved road with houses on either side? What does the sign look like? New, metallic and shiny? Wooden and with block text carved into it? Does the girl who answers the door have black hair? Brown? When Misty walks in, Ash and Brock will notice the change in her hairstyle immediately, as well.

3. The awesome part about writing Pokemon is that you cannot understand them - they communicate through body language and tone rather than understandable speech. For example, when Pikachu remarks on the fact that they've seen the sign, does he look angry, with his tail rigid? Does he look scared, with his ears back and a sad look on his face? Was his voice harsh or cheerful?

4. Don't be afraid of writing more than one character at a time. Don't just say that Ash, Brock, and May walked into a room. Try to describe the characters in parts so that the reader gets a picture of what each one is doing.

---

Ash wandered in the house, Brock following behind him. May yawned and sat down upon the couch, looking apprehensively towards Ash and Brock who were familiar with their host. Max flicked open his PokeNav, idly opening a page without really looking at it.
