Surely, as it is an hourglass time cannot be 'ticking away'. Shouldn't it be time is slipping away?

Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,   
An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature.   
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses   
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.   
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,   
A singular development of cat communications   
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection   
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.   
A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents.   
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.   
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,   
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.   
Oh Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display   
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array,   
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,   
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

Save the planet? We don't even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We haven't learned to take care of one another. We're going to save to ******* planet? There's nothing wrong with the planet. The planet is fine. The people are ****** . Compared to humans, the planet is doing fine. It's been here 4.5 billion years.

Contrary to popular belief, we can't destroy nature. Nature will always exist, but it will exist in a form inhospitable to us.

**cmcghie rolled a random image posted in comment #602 at Look Ma, I'm Normal! ** Sigh. Pictures like this really bring out a fear of mine. I hate being in crowded places, I hate being in big cities. I can't stand being around tons of people. I don't hate everyone, it's just that I can't stomach society in it's present as it is. People just don't care about anything until they are adversely effected by it.

I live in a pretty remote place in New Hampshire, and it bothers the **** out of me when loud obnoxious assholes come up to the lake I live on and disrespect it, especially in the summer. Screaming and shouting, throwing beer cans in it and littering. It makes my blood boil. I literally want to kill people like this. It's like Smith said in the Matrix:

"I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague."


TL,DR - We are ******* ourselves out of a future.
User avatar #17 to #15 - herecomesjohnny (03/22/2012) [-]
Wait, what? Fish don't have equilibrium? What's that 'mammal' argument?
Insects and bacteria don't have equilibrium?

It's talking about how humans have no respect for nature. How did you not derive that from the quote/comment?
User avatar #35 to #15 - joemand (03/22/2012) [-]
Although I won't disagree that we have a certain disrespect for nature, no species simply develops an equilibrium. If every species was capable of populating till their environment is destroyed, they would. The primary purpose of all species is to reproduce, therefore they won't just stop because they realize their population is getting too big. The only reason many species aren't allowed to become too large is due to human intervention or other predatory animals. Humans just have no predators to stop our mass population from growing. Not even nature itself has provided the proper restrictions.
User avatar #168 to #35 - evbliss (03/22/2012) [-]
the only being on the entire planet that doesn't have a NATURAL equilibrium is us, we thrive constantly, there isn't much that kills us, unlike other animals that reside in an ecosystem, which by the way

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecosystem

If the world did not have us, it'd be a pretty beautiful place, and would thriving and teeming with life.
User avatar #178 to #168 - joemand (03/22/2012) [-]
I'm not saying the world wouldn't be a lush planet, as it once was. However many environments would be destroyed due to over population. For example, an important reason for deer hunting is to thin out the population. Not because they become intrusive to humans, but because they tend to over populate to the extreme extent. Meaning they bring down their environment along with everything else.

Despite humans being more harmful to our ecosystem than any other species, are we not living? Thus living, we are life also. Beauty is open to ones own interpretation. A great forest is beautiful, but a city is also a beautiful place in my opinion.

Same here I like living in my small town in Florida. But damn tourist(which is our city's only way of making money) who disrespect the nice beaches or lovely islands by leaving their kegs or trash. Really pisses me off
User avatar #185 to #15 - shadowsknight (03/22/2012) [-]
that feel bro.... I feel it
#20 to #15 - novus (03/22/2012) [-]
While I agree with the sentiment, I just want to point out that Smith's analogy of mammals is totally false. Any species of anything will populate beyond its limits with the controls removed. It happens all the time in the wild, but less now due to humans placing controls on animal population. However, there are few population controls on humanity that we haven't figured out how to tweak or remove, thus propelling our populations forward.

Again, I'm not disagreeing with the whole overpopulation/disrespect for earth thing. But people who think nature is in a perfectly balanced eternal equilibrium are kidding themselves.

Okay, Nature boy, how exactly will we do that? Tie ourselves to trees?
Sorry, but we'll either get arrested or chopped up.
Plus we need the resourses trees give us.
And it's not like new trees aren't planted anyway.

That's nice. I don't think people are that greedy when it comes to trees though. They are greedy, but not greedy enough to blow up the planet.

And this is still not the place for stuff like this.

its all good, looks like this timer's flipable, Buildings can turn back into trees by this logic :P
#29 to #26 - anon (03/22/2012) [-]
But if the city is in there and we're in the city, then the only hand big enough to turn it would be God's. So then that's the apocalypse! I didn't see it coming...

Are we reading into this metaphor too much?

Well yes but it will take thousands of years before they become dirt and eventually get incorporated into plant life
