RE: The Angry Thread
Quote:On the islet of Stac an Armin, St. Kilda, Scotland, in July 1840, the last great auk seen in Britain was caught and killed. Three men from St. Kilda caught a single "garefowl", noticing its little wings and the large white spot on its head. They tied it up and kept it alive for three days, until a large storm arose. Believing that the bird was a witch and was causing the storm, they then killed it by beating it with a stick.

I wish trilobites were alive today ... because they look tasty. I want to eat one.

You can try eating a horseshoe crab. They are closely related to trilobites.

Apparently you can eat them at high-end Chinese restaurants. And they taste gross.

I've eaten pigeon. Very good. Dark meat, darker than duck, and good.

I've eaten jellyfish. Yuck.

Arachnids are as closely related to trilobites as horseshoe crabs are. They only look superficially similar due to convergent evolution.

Not really.

There are currently more chickens then humans on the planet. When humans decide that an animal is delicious, the usually farm it, if that is at all possible.

In reality, most extinctions are caused by habitat loss, not direct hunting and killing.

Addionally, most poachers are after tusks and horns, not meat.

Historically, hunting for food has been a significant cause of extinction, mainly because human societies of the time lacked either the desire or the wherewithal to domesticate the creatures in question.

History is the lies of the victors coupled with the delusions of the defeated. It is an imagined certainty created at the point where the imperfection of memory meets the inadequacy of documentation.

A+

Arachnids and horseshoe crabs both belong to the Chelicerata subphylum, which does not include the trilobites.

RE: The Angry Thread
I was an amazing guy during my night owl mode or night shift college years in the last decade, taking no medications till my father and stepmother had enough and put me on Prozac 20mg and Abilify 10mg. From 2012 to January 31st, 2018, I got off Abilify only.

Reasons why I prefer night owl mode or night shift. If I was in early bird mode or day shift, I would be seeing too many notifications, enough for me to hate them.

Is there any politician in the world that is more unintelligent than Trump?

My natural mode is Night Owl as well. I'm forced to wake up early as I have a job but if I didn't have to work I'd never be up before lunchtime.

I wake up about 4:15 every morning

go to bed about 9pm

I'm not anti-social; I'm just not user friendly.
