    Default Hooray For Denmark !!! Key To Lifting Whaling Ban

    This is a tricky situation. EU rules require
    unanimity to vote against lifting the whaling ban,
    and Denmark is holding out.

    What is it with these crazy dirtbags? I'll no doubt go to my grave
    having never tasted a single oz of whale meat. So freakin' what. I
    don't eat a lot of things anymore. These murdering scum suckers can't
    give up one little food item. Gotta go out and hunt an animal to
    extinction for a damn whale burger?

    Damn, I'll sure be glad when human beings are extinct!

    If they want human beings to become extinct they should have the same
    courage of their convictions as your typical Muslim extremist and do
    something about it, starting with themselves.

    That's unlikely to have any significant impact. Keep in mind
    that for two thousand years, Christians aspired to martyrdom as
    well, and the gods know there is no shortage of them today.

    In the 15th century, Christians, under the guise of the various
    Inquisitions (Medieval, Spanish, Portuguese and Roman), murdered
    thousands of Muslims (Moriscos) and Jews (Conversos) and Greek
    Orthodox who dared retain some semblance of their traditions
    while professing to be Christians.

    The most famous of the inquisitory tribunals was the trial of
    Jeanne d'Arc (1431 AD). Notwithstanding the English 'tude
    against "chix with swords", she became the patron saint of
    France.

    Just as a note, it is the 15th century of Islam. Give them 500
    years and they'll surprise you.

    In the meantime, stop poking sticks in hornets' nests. We'll all
    sleep more soundly.

    Certainly true. We survived the last Ice Age,
    and we'll survive whatever comes next, assuming
    BP doesn't figure out a way to poison the atmosphere.

    On the other hand, where to be when a crisis occurs is
    an interesting question. I think a self-sustaining island
    would be best, like Hawaii. Being surrounded by ocean
    protects against invasion by desparate people. Hawaii
    imports almost everything except salt, coffee, and fish,
    so you'd want to stock up on things like soap, detergent,
    toilet paper, printer paper, toner cartridges, etc.

    From what I've gleaned, they are trying to change the rules to close
    the loopholes in the current law that allows those who are already
    whaling to take huge numbers of whales. The proposed new law is
    supposed to effictively END whaling as we know it now.

    Here's a good article:

    The Kalahari, _if_ you have the skills of a Bushman. They don't have
    anything anybody else wants and the Kalahari is not the kind of place
    that starving people will go looking for food.

    If you don't have those skills, when civilization falls you're screwed
    anyway.

    Where's the energy/oil/electricity coming from for your computer and
    printer? Toilet paper? A lifetime supply? Try leaves.

    Hawaii was first inhabited by desperate people, remember? They
    can learn to sail that far again from all over the South Pacific
    if needed.

    Read some of the old apocalyptic novels like Alas, Babylon or
    even Lord of the Flies. It wouldn't be easy to survive a
    major ecological disaster. We may be facing one right now in
    the Gulf, larger than we can imagine at the moment.

    Remember T.S. Elliot's Hollow Men:

    This is the way the world ends

    This is the way the world ends
    Not with a bang but a whimper.

    Sure it would, but whose gonna decide who gets exterminated and who
    doesn't? You? Me? Joe Blow down the road?

    Many have tried to decide, and we call their efforts genocide. Hitler,
    Stalin, Pol Pot, Milosovich, etc. Not exactly the crowd I'd ever want
    to be associated with.

    Nawww, I think I'd like Mother Nature and Father Time to decide the
    big questions! :-)
