Philosophically speaking

Postby Sabina » Mon Jan 18, 2010 6:25 pm

Here are a couple of philosophical questions having to do with nature. Some fun food for thought basically.


What do you do when you see an endangered animal
eating an endangered plant?



Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all"?

Bahaha, I like the second one especially.

So.... First things first.

Umm, if it is small and cute, I take it up and put it somewhere else. If it is small and ugly, I just chase it away, hoping not to scare it too much to give it a heart failure. If it is big and nasty (no matter if cute or ugly - think of tigers, cute as hell, but can be damn nasty), I'd just lure it away and run for my dear life, maybe say a prayer as a good atheist who turns christian on his death bed :)

The second one is tricky...

If I were the forest ranger, and I would be the kind who encounters lots of animals, I wouldn't go to a big city, so that I don't see even more animals (haha, that was a sideslapper ;0) ). If I didn't encounter many animals, I'd go to the zoo. Peaceful, you can see animals, and you won't even mind the talking ones (another sideslapper, I should think of a career in standup comedy =0/ ).

LOL!!
Very good.. you see.. there are multiple possibilities on why theater acting wasn't the right choice. Stand-up comedy might be it after all.

I know theatre acting would be the right choice :) I have all what it takes, been performing with an amateur, but almost professional group for a while now. But, circumstances are circumstances :)

I like very much David´s answer. =0D Part about tiger is hilarious...specially having in mind how much tigers like plants =0@
More or less I would do the same. With animals that are not danger I would give them something else to eat. But, I would not try the same with rhinoceros.

Desert or sea shore maybe...

I know, I know, but to me, tigers are the ultimate-utmost-uber-supercute-estestest animals in the world, so mentioning a different one, even because of different eating habits, would be against my faith =0X

A little extra for all tiger-loving people, me included, though in my case that's probably also because of my Chinese horoscope sign. Voilà!
