Wednesday, June 24, 2009

In 1949, a Maine lobsterman slipped into a diabetic coma and was eaten by his catch.

  • This is the kind of garbage that I've been reading, spread out all through the Factropolis site. Our kids read this crap. A good reason why little kids are killing each other at school. They probably read on Factropolis something about selective breeding improving the species, and they wanted to get an early start. In any case, I think Factropolis should shut down or get real and have true professionals research facts and post what is uplifting and responsibly knowledgeable for children, as well as adults. It's my opinion that if people really wanted to read or see such crap, there would still be freak shows at the fair. I think the freakshow is the people who are presenting these "facts" as having any worth to a responsible, moral society. Psychologically, I would suggest their staff get professional help... soon.

  • Last I recall, there are still freak shows at fairs.

    Not sure that analogy had anything to do with the published information, but since ocean bottom feeders tend to eat whatever floats down, the occurrence doesn't seem unreasonable.

    Myself, I would question the response more than the published information.

  • Of course you would, Kahne, but then, you've constantly shown yourself to be an avid Factropolis editor...er...I mean, defender.

  • Impossible. Not even going to go into the details, this time.
