Brilliance Goes Unrecognized

it's a sad state of affairs, isn't it?

one the one side, we have the President of the United States, who deliberately squashes evidence of global warming so that his masters in the oil industry can sell more fuel for gas-guzzling environment wrecking pieces of garbage.

and on the other side of the pond, a brilliant kid invents a hamster powered cell phone charger, and yet his so-called "science teacher" gives him an "average" grade.

this kid should be given a scholarship at MIT, if you ask me. and Bush's so-called "science" advisors should be sent to the Amazon to obtain live pirahna excrement swabs.

Hmmm Jackass.

Apparently you know nothing about hamsters.

Hamsters LIKE to run on a wheel.

What is immoral is to waste the energy of it.

Humans love to pedal a bicycle and can pedal faster and for longer than hamsters can run. Let's harness the energy of that.

Ok. Let's use Critical Mass bicyclists to power my Pol Pot Torture Action Playset.

Before I get labelled a racist, allow me to clarify.

I was merely restating a sentiment common among the pro-slavery factions in the U.S. some time ago. I was attempting to encourage you to rethink your statement in that context.

And yes, I AM an animal rights freakazoid; but no, I don't throw paint on people who wear fur.
Yes but no.

Yeah. That's what's wrong with accusations or correlations to racism or social progressivism. It's all just a bunch of rephrasing using a pile of worthless cliches in a weak attempt to compare someone to either a Klansman or a Nazi.

Animalks were put here to be my food and drag my car around.

Once again, I was not making any accusations or correlations. I was MERELY encouraging you to DO YOUR OWN FUCKING THINKING INSTEAD OF JUST PARROTING SOME FUCKING DOGMA!!!

Thank you.

It's not about hamsters anymore. It's about you and your sheeplike mentality.

Yeah. I'm a sheep because I don't care about hamsters. This is REAL political banter. You are really changing the world.
