Mass extinctions

You may or may not have heard about mass extinctions.

If you are from a bible humping (yes humping) part of the world, mass extinctions are a new and satanic concept to you, as everything is no older than 6000 years. If you are from that crowd still believing this – go away.

There have been a few mass extinctions in earth’s history. Caused by a multitude of things:
◆Meteorite impact, the most popular one, dinosaur killer. 😉
◆Super volcano, the misnomer, it was less a volcanic eruption, like the super pimple on earth’s face like Yellowstone, but the earth tearing open, spewing forth gas, lava, gas, soot, gas, ash and gas into the atmosphere and killing much of life through a mixture of suffocation and climate change (aka Volcanic winter).
◆Gamma Ray Burst, it is deadly lightning from space. When “nearby” a star goes nova, or shit dives into a black hole, from the poles of the nova or the blackhole, a massive blast of concentrated gamma radiation is shot out. If the earth is in the path of this highly concentrated ray – the side of the earth turned into the ray, is immediately sterilised – Pop out of a shelter or a time machine a second later, and do open heart surgery in the dirt. That sterilised!
The Ozone layer is wrecked, allowing for the sun to do in the other side of the planet.

And lastly, my favorite. The first mass extinction event ON earth, was caused by creatures FROM earth.

Tiny single cell organisms, who breathed earth’s ancient atmosphere, which lacked oxygen, exhaled just that – oxygen. They exhaled so much of that which we need to survive, that they bereft themselves of something to breathe, and they changed the climate – it got cooler due to the oxygen, and they died in massive numbers.

Now, did we ever stop to consider, that, we might be the next incarnation of this?
We can’t kill ALL life on the earth, but like those buggers back then, we would change conditions to a state where we can’t live any longer, taking most of life currently present with us into oblivion.
This planet is a self correcting system, we may or may not be a failure. Our purpose from the start may have been to act as a reset button. Clean the slate, and life starts over.
Again.

Now, we could try and avoid this, in which case we can spread out (to space!), evolve, and be one with nature. But if we don’t, nature doesn’t care.
Self correcting system. An answer to our age old question: “Why are we here?” -“Mass extinction, anal orifice!”

Take that environmentalists! You are preventing nature from self correcting! Mindless, meddling fools!

Greenpeace

The folks trying to teach Russia not to drill for oil in the artic face up to 15 years in prison.

Good.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all in favor of saving the environment, but idiocy needs to be punished. If all that (criminal) energy, the money they spent for their frakking ship (and the frakking fuel for said ship!) would be put to actually good use – like eliminating the NEED to drill for oil – that would be helpful.

Imagine that, stopping at the gas station, and tanking biofuel from Greenpeace in your car. Or hydrogen. Or electricity.
If Greenpeace would want to do somethong REALLY good, it needs to do the same the US Republicans need to do – GET RID OF YOUR CRACIES! The fanatical lunatics need to go. Muslims, Republicans, Greenpeace, EVERYONE: take your fanatical lunatics and show them out. Never let them back in.
Period.

Earthquakes

Two weeks and just as many earthquakes. I know for you westcoast US americans this is like vacation, but it is oddly often here. And the epicenter for both quakes was Ebreichsdorf. I hope they get a new hymn there: “AC/DC – Shook Me All Night Long” 😉

Political commentaries

I’ll leave those to better qualified people, hence I won’t tell you why I think that the rightwingers got so many votes in the recent election.

What I will do however is tell you what I think of parties gaining ground by claiming that education needs reform (again): Less than nothing.

First off: We just had a school reform deforming our educational system. It hasn’t taken full effect yet, so when a new idiot appears and rants about bad education and that a quarter of youths can’t read – I suspect he’s one of them.

Secondly: Schools ain’t the problem. Teachers ain’t either.
Parents are. Or rather, society is forcing the parents to become part of the problem. If we had more time for our families instead of working nine to five on five days of the week, we’d have better educational results. But instead we outsource raising our kids to so called professionals and the media.
Ain’t nothing to learn from these cretinous sources. Neither for life, nor for school.

So if you want to deform school yet again, start by reforming society, and always remember, our old systems in education gave us Freud, Einstein, Hawking, Darwin, Carlin, and a shit-zillion other geniuses. Don’t experiment with alternative crap that would make Waldorf think you’re nuts!
