I've just seen a post from some woman on here where she was having a go at another member for telling an 'offensive' joke on the Atheist humour page. This sort of thing is so irritating and depressing. As Stephen Fry asked, so fucking what if you find something offensive? Who cares? Being offended isn't some horrific injury or reasonable position, it's just whinging isn't it? Just a whine.
It's an emotional response to someone when you feel some line in your head has been crossed; as though there are some sacred things you're not supposed to joke about, which is often what we have a go at 'Believers' for.
I think it's often just another way for we apes to get one up on each other, as though being more serious about something improves your argument, or makes you look more mature, which is very important apparently.
That's not to say that nothing offends me, just that I'd feel sanctimonious (and now very hypocritical) moaning about it!
Birds, including geese, absolutely mourn their dead mates. They often do pair up with new mates, after a period of time. The bonds are very strong and hunting would certainly destroy the natural order of things, being that there would be a high number of losses, as compared to an occassional loss.
I have had all types of pets throughout my life and I have a mini sanctuary at my home. Gayness runs throughout the animal kingdom, and I am not talking about one animal mounting another animal, because of dominance.
Doesn't it depend on the type of bird though? I have heard that if a goose's mate dies, it will also die in grief. It was in the local paper in an article on wild life management to keep hunters from killing a lot of geese willy nilly.
An interesting note, I had two gay male cats who were very devoted to each other, when one died, the other went totally out of his mind. He was already heading down the path of cat Alzhemier's, but that sent him way over the edge. Cats are not known for their faithfulness, but these two obviously couldn't live without each other.
Somebody needs an appointment with Marcus Bachmann!
What is it about these homophobic republican politicians?
Are we still talking about poop? AWESOME!
When I was in college I had a bobcat who peed and pooped in the toilet. She just took it up on her own. Unfortunately, she never flushed.
This is such a LGBT topic :-) well, ok.
I had to create a special litter box entrance so the dogs couldn't get into it for the "special treats" there. Every time I turned around, one of them had his head in the opening, wagging his tail. In their case, it wasn't fresh clean water they were after. I think Dallas is pretty much on target. Cats might be more fastidious.
It's possible that humans have less effective immune systems and need more sanitation than out 4-legged friends need. On the other hand, there is a hypothesis that allergies, eczema, ulcerative colitis, autism, diabetes, and other conditions might be caused by / made more likely by an excessively clean society. It's "The hygiene hypothesis". That doesn't mean we should be drinking cholera-infested water - a very bad idea - or eating salads at Sizzler - but maybe there is too much fastidiousness out there.
Still, I never let the dogs kiss me, after seeing what they get into. Yuck.
