What is a parasites saving grace?

Looking at the strongest and most tenacious parasite upon Earth, Humans, i have seen only the wanton destruction they have engineered for their immediate benfit. I see before me their evils balanced against their goods by a million to one... yet still i wish to see something in them.

I cannot logically and reasonably defend my position that perhaps humankind can be changed, and so the world, and a reformed symbiot, might live on.

Any irrefutable arguments for the preservation of our specie would be appreciated. thanks.

Q: Does anyone have any idea what to do about shin splints? 'Cause mine aren't getting better.

Otherwise you shall bring your mothership to bear and wipe out Earth, along with its human populace?

Terrify us with your hideously misshapen thorax?

I'll tell you a redeeming virtue. A sense of irony. The thinnest, yet sharpest of them all.

Well... It's a, erm, usually caused by extreme pollution or can be done by cloud seeding clouds w/ certain chemicals... Example: Pure cotton candy pink snow in Detriot a few years back due to an exploded machine that outputs a certain coloured smoke, or being caused by certain colours of ash particles forming supercooled clouds... I'm pretty sure we have the capability to do so, I mean we can dye rivers green for St. Patrick's, so why not dye the clouds and snow? :P

Because dyeing the clouds and snow would mean work, and we are inherently lazy.




What is the square root of 837204?

Answer is: 914.9885245(as far as the graphing calc goes)

If I were to make it so only 50,000,000 people exist on Earth at a time, which areas could I get rid of the majority of the 6.7 billion people already here?

I would prevent humans from coming into existence, we've done so much damage... It'd be best if we just disappeared...

The way it currently appears, down, down, down, and more down... If you catch the drift :P

Is it a natural phase in my Christianity to be questioning almost everything about it?

Absolutely and completely yes. If you never question your faith, you find no answers as to why you believe.



Why did I ever think taking five classes at the same time was a good idea?

What motivates you to keep on moving on when you feel that everything is going against you?

The fact that if I commit suicide, I will be stuck along with two of my ex's and a few other people in hell forever... In other cases, I simply either hug my wife and remember all that I have, or the best backup, fmylife dot com :D

If they can make pocket trumpets, then why are there no pocket tubas?
