Deforestation by shinne on April 22nd, 2014, 10:49 am
Deforestation has a big effect on global warming. Since trees absorb greenhouse gases and carbon emissions, deforestation is considered to be a big contributing factor to global climate changes. Trees not only produce oxygen, but they keep greenhouse gasses from entering the atmosphere. When an area is deforested, trees also become a carbon source when they are burned and cut. Once these trees are removed and the carbon dioxide is in the atmosphere, the carbon dioxide acts as a barrio for heat that would normally be released into space. Because of this, temperature across the world rise and it can change rainfall patterns, ice cover, and sea levels.
One thing I found to be interesting about deforestation was the effects it has on animals and plants. With rainforest covering about 7 percent of the world’s surface, about half of all plant and animal species on earth are found there. Rainforest, being the biggest victim of deforestation, are not being preserved like they should be. Species a...

What are we? This place of unknown. The imprisonment of life; the privilege of love with the end result of loss, where experiences fade away and history gets hidden in the shroud of existence.
A place in which our greatest values are only to be remembered by equally temporary means. Nothing in this universe is permanent, nothing can be.

It is utterly impossible for man to understand the world without understanding himself and the situations he has been in, without clarity of your own mind it would be virtually impossible to disconnect yourself from personal experiences to see a broader picture. Perception poisons reality, you will never fully comprehend the feelings behind the words people say. Emotions seem to get dumbed down when you define them with words.

I am just a building block in this society, just a pawn of an impossible reality. Invisible forces such as gravity and an atmosphere to protect us from the rest of the universe. How could something come from nothing? It’...

A discussion on the emasculation of society and it's consequence by wolfhnd on December 31st, 2012, 12:20 pm
(satire=a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.)

As the gun debate unfolds it becomes clear that large segments of the population are no longer willing to accept that a man, or a woman for that matter, has the right to defend themselves. This is just another example of how fussy thinking emasculators have come to dominate society. There was a time in not too distant past when everyone understood that the gene pool was best served by letting everyone crazy enough to carry a weapon do so. Unrestricted weapons served two purposes, one it quickly removed the ultra violent in gun duals and shoot outs from the population, secondly it improved the gene pool by removing anyone incapable of defending themselves. What the emasculators fail to understand is that fighting the natural order of things always results in disastrous consequences in the long term. Removing the evolutionary prerogative of violence from the...
