It is sobering to realize that the rate of animal and plant extinction has once again accelerated dramatically. During the last century and a half, the explosion in our global human population and our rapid technological development has allowed us to move into and over-exploit most areas of our planet including the oceans. That exploitation has usually involved cutting down forests, changing the courses of rivers, pushing wild animals and plants out of farm and urban areas, polluting wetlands with pesticides and other man-made chemicals, and industrial-scale hunting of large land animals, whales, and fish. During the early 19th century, there were at least 40,000,000 bison roaming the Great Plains of North America. By the end of that century, there were only a few hundred remaining. They had been hunted to near extinction with guns. The same fate came to the African elephant and rhinoceros during the 20th century. Likewise, commercial fishermen have depleted one species of fish after another during the last half century. Governments have had to step in to try to stem the tide of these human population effects on other species. However, they have been only marginally successful. The World Conservation Union conservatively estimates that 7,266 animal species and 8,323 plant and lichen species are now at risk of extinction primarily due to human caused habitat degradation. The endangered list includes 1/3 of all amphibian species, nearly 1/2 of the turtles and tortoises, 1/4 of the mammals, 1/5 of the sharks and rays, and 1/8 of the birds. This list does not include the many millions of species that are still unknown to science. It is likely that most of them will become extinct before they can be described and studied.
the bad US Military during earlyNAtive Indian/US wars wiped out many Bison and indians!

A plant cricket that doesn't have a period? Wow...just Wow...that took some thought to come up with...are you high tonight?
Flowering period-less crickets hopping through cabbage and flower beds are more likely than a talking snake conning you into taking drugs to find out you were really naked to start with, if you think about it.

So when was the last time you was walking around unaware of you nakedness? Was there some menz following you? I have no idea why..lol

The major contributor where the railroads,the development, as well, as believe it or not, but shooting Bison and other big game from a moving train, was somewhat of a sport, not to mention the fur trade.Mankinds development,has done this to every environment on the planet. There really is not much left that we haven't fuked up. We have become no different than the animals we lock up at the zoo. There is no more natural, in nature.

No silly you can't make sense of everything, sometimes a provocateur of delirium is lurking in the shadows of literary madness. The true nature of the Lord of Delirium unbeknownst to the unsuspecting prey who are amongst garden gnomes and the fruit of the vine.

No, you misunderstand. Which is bigger? Double Fine's incomprehensible humility, or Double Fine's infinite awesomeness?

The answer Double Fine comes up with, is both... At the same time

I don't lack compassion...I just have my priorities in a different order than you. I don't see the government rushing to the aid of the family living in a car after a man lost his job when his company bellied up because another employee embezzled millions of dollars from them. Yet, that embezzler, he gets placed in a minimum security prison with tv, Internet, a gym to work out in, 3 hot meals, free healthcare...etc...etc...and the family of four ends up eating outta garbage cans from behind McDonalds. Sooner or later...that dad is stealing to feed his kids. It's a backwards and messed up system that caters to the convict and let's it he people who want to contribute to society go hungry.
The fact that our society is not perfect does not mean we should treat our prisoners badly. Life is terribly unfair sometimes. We don't gain anything by making it worse for criminals.
