It often occurs to me that there should be some way of recognising volunteer work that earns one no money.
My boss, or rather, the president of the association at which I work, is on government handouts but he works his bum off to maintain the centre, and it'd be nice to see some sort of fiscal reward for that. The problem of course being that people would abuse the system, as always.
*sigh* such is humanity.
Stupid humans. We should kill them all.
It would solve so many problems. It's sometimes nice, sometimes depressing, to think about what would replace us (assuming something would indeed, replace us in the ecological web).
My vote is on the doll-fins.
I bet they would eat entirely vegeterian sushi.
They might... or they might eat the fish.
I mean sushi made out of vegetarians <evil grin>.
I just get the feeling that highly evolved dolphins would be incredibly, fantastically, and wonderfully and .
Yes they would. AND they live in water, which means they don't have the same overpopulation problems we idiot humans do...
Wow! Just imagine dolphin-man explorers tentatively, in special high-altitude suits, venturing onto shore for the very first time...
What they would think of us!
They'll theorise about some ancient dolphin civilisation that one day, was suddenly raised about the sea!
Maybe. But how would they explain things like scissors? And sporks? They have no opposable thumbs!
They'd inevitably explain them as something to do with sex. All our archeologists do the same thing.
Isn't that because most primitive cultures thought of sex as sacred since there were few people on the planet and sex made babies and something something...
:D That may well be it. Plus I think most humans (Archaeologists included) have sex preying on their minds at some level most of the time.
Well, most males at least and there are few female archealogists.
Perhaps all of archaeology is just one massive Freudian slip?
I think it might be. Let's start all over, re-cover everything and re-discover it!!
Now THERE'S a damn good idea! I think we should try to get it all covered before easter, that way, we can have an historical sites hunt instead of an easter egg hunt. It'd be pleasing in its own way,
Okay. I'll start with all of the sites over here in the Americas, you work in Europe, and we can try to meet up in Asia to finish it up.
