Perverse and Insane: Animals Thinking, Dreaming and Planning Vacations

Some guy named Carl Safina wrote another insane book about how animals are humans. It’s called “Beyond Words.”

In an email exchange, in which there is included an invitation to interview the author, the invitation is predicated by one persons’s comment that says:

“BEYOND WORDS is a must-read! Animals think, mourn, dream, make plans, and communicate complex messages in much the same way that we do! Readers who knew this already will rejoice! Others will learn the truth! And the more of us who capture the message, the sooner we will change the world!”

The invitation itself states that: “BEYOND WORDS offers powerful and illuminating insight into the unique personalities of animals through extraordinary stories of animal joy, grief, jealousy, anger and love. Ultimately a graceful examination of humanity’s place in the world, Safina calls on us to re-evaluate our relationship to the other species around us.”

Beyond words is a most exacting title as nobody in their right mind would believe any of this shit and would run the risk of being institutionalized, by doing so, if it were not for the fact that those running the nut factories are, themselves, nuttier than a fruitcake.

This is just further proof that the American society has gone off the deep end. Only the most insane and perverse minds would write such utter nonsense and believe any of it to be of any truth.

Here’s the entire invitation to interview the author:

BEYOND WORDS

What Animals Think & Feel

By Carl Safina – host of PBS’s “SAVING THE OCEAN”

Prize-winning author and MacArthur Fellow Carl Safina weaves decades of field observations with exciting new discoveries in brain science that delivers enlightening insight into animal cognition in his landmark new book BEYOND WORDS: What Animals Think and Feel (Henry Holt/A John Macrae Book; on sale: July 14, 2015).

In BEYOND WORDS, readers witness elephant families navigate the pervasive drought and incidents of poaching in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, see a free-living wolf pack sort out the aftermath of tragedy in Yellowstone National Park and finally plunge into an astonishingly peaceful society of killer whales living in the waters of the Pacific Northwest. These animals are treated as the individual characters they are, with distinct personalities and unique roles within social structures not unlike our own. Taking us into the animals’ lives and minds, Safina reports on the surprising similarities between our minds and theirs while thoughtfully tackling issues that affect us all, including habitat conservation and extinction.

BEYOND WORDS offers powerful and illuminating insight into the unique personalities of animals through extraordinary stories of animal joy, grief, jealousy, anger and love. Ultimately a graceful examination of humanity’s place in the world, Safina calls on us to re-evaluate our relationship to the other species around us.

Carl can speak about:

*How humans—with our friends, families, enemies, alliances, and career arcs—are similar to other animals that live in stable, structured groups, such as elephants, great apes, wolves, killer whales, and certain dolphins.
*How civilization has apparently dulled human senses and actually reduced our brain size, when many other animals are superhumanly alert, with ultra-fast response times and herculean physical abilities.
*How humans have inherited consciousness, thought, and feelings of fear, joy, grief, and emotional bonds from other animals, similar to the way we inherited our skeleton, organs, and nervous systems, and how it’s only a difference of degree.
*Why humans, dogs, and even crustaceans respond similarly to the same anti-anxiety and obsessive-compulsive drugs.
*What it means that humans and other animals share a remarkable capacity for grief.
*How human brains differ from those of whales and elephants, despite a relatively similar number of neurons in the brain’s cortex.
*Why humans and apes who view emotionally charged images respond with similar changes in brain and peripheral skin temperature.
*How orcas—whales born and built for a complex world of long-distance sound and long-distance travel—are affected by living in captivity.
*How the removal of Endangered Species Act protection affected the wolf population in Yellowstone National Park.
*Why humans’ strong tendency to act irrationally, to base decisions, beliefs, and actions on ideologies and things that cannot be seen, makes us different from other animals.
*How human language impacts the possibility of planetary catastrophe (and why animals that don’t communicate via human language may have the upper hand).
*Why species that have the most complex societies develop the most complex brains.

About the Author: Carl Safina is author of seven books, including SONG FOR THE BLUE OCEAN, which was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, EYE OF THE ALBATROSS, VOYAGE OF THE TURTLE, and THE VIEW FROM LAZY POINT. Safina is founding president of The Safina Center at Stony Brook University, where he also co-chairs the University’s Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science. A winner of the 2012 Orion Award and a MacArthur Prize, among others, his work has been featured in outlets such as The New York Times, National Geographic, CNN.com and The Huffington Post, and he hosts “SAVING THE OCEAN” on PBS.

Insanity! Florida Bans Global Warming Lie Words

Is somebody “misspeaking” here? Maybe they “misremembered”? Hell, I bet it must have been a “typo”! Get this. Florida bans the use of terms, “global warming”, “climate change”, and “sea level rise”. The governor, and his “officials”, having recently completed the 2nd grade, now one grade ahead of the “left”, said the ban was to, “not allowed to discuss anything that was not a true fact.” Na na! Boo Boo!

I’m particularly fond of this whine from the leftist idiots: “A geologist from the University of Miami, Harold Wanless, told Korten that it’s going to be hard to plan for climate change if officials won’t even talk about it.”

I don’t think I’m mistaken when I say that President Obama pushes the fake global warming about as much as he keeps reminding people he is a Christian. The president openly and eagerly lies about climate change…well, he does that because, one, he is told he better, and two, because there’s tons and tons of money to be made cheating the people. (How long before all of our money runs out?)

However, this same president and his brain dead “True Believer” followers, refuse to call Islamic Terrorists, Islamic Terrorist while the equally brain dead on the Right cry and whine saying that there is no way to combat Islamic Terrorism if the president isn’t willing to call it Islamic Terrorism.

So, who is right? Well, then, who is wrong? Or are they both right and wrong? My right is more right than your right and the teacher said I could say that.

I was asked, “R U insane? Everybody else is.” I guess I am but not for the same reasons. I must be insane because I see the insanity as insane. When insanity becomes the norm, then everything outside of the norm is then insane.

So, color me a flaming nut job! I think it is time for one of my favorite “out of planet” experiences. See you in a few.

Who Exactly is the Sociopath Here?

If this action wasn’t so damned pathetic it would be funny. Wayne Hooper, who writes outdoor articles for the Seacoast Online, shared with readers an email that he was sent. It goes like this:

“Your Sunday hunting logic is absurd, and if it wasn’t so sad and typical of sociopath Mainer behavior it would be laughably ridiculous! How about considering the rights of non-hunters who utilize the woodlands? Blue sky laws are an ignorant, self-absorbed straw man argument.

“I guess even one day a week for the at least six-week period during which housewife killing, scumbag Mainer hunters run amok in childish camo is too much for you to allow the over one million Mainers who aren’t hunters to walk in the woods without fear of being shot by a local chucklehead dirtbag with a gun, and to enjoy the same resources that you seem to demand and have a self-entitled expectation for.

“But that’s Maine, the capital of proud-without-cause sociopaths.”

Honest to god, you can’t make this stuff up!

I Want You to Give Up Half Your Land for Wildlife

“Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and Harvard scientist E.O. Wilson says we need to abandon half of the globe to nature or face an extinction event that makes the one that wiped out the dinosaurs look like a blip on the radar.”<<<Read More>>>

I do believe this utter nonsense deserves the “Horse Excrement Award.” (Here’s looking at you, Sweetheart)

$2,984 A Deer for Birth Control

Madness

The latest round of village deer sterilizations removed ovaries from 12 deer in December and cost taxpayers $35,808.

Does were shot with tranquilizer darts and taken to a temporary surgical facility, according to a report by White Buffalo Inc. The company conducted the sterilizations and reported that no deer died during capture, surgery or release….

Costs for this winter’s doe sterilization were well above early estimates, set at $1,000 per animal. The cost for the December sterilizations was $2,984 per deer.<<<Read More>>>

Breeding Stripes With Spots Yields Sparred Owls

And environMENTALISTS cannot tolerate this natural phenomenon, probably because they believe it is man-caused. As a result, these same mentally ill of the environment cult, plan to spend a cool $ 1 million of tax money a year and begin killing 9,000 striped barred owls because they are breeding with their fetish owl, the spotted one, and competing for habitat. Isn’t this insanity?

Another Idiot Speaks! Global Warming Biggest Threat

Hey! Turn out the lights! The party’s over, man!

The Boston Globe reports that the head paid killer “in charge of monitoring hostile actions by North Korea, escalating tensions between China and Japan, and a spike in computer attacks traced to China,” Navy Admiral Samuel J. Locklear III, said that the biggest threat to the Pacific Region was climate change. You can’t really make this stuff up.

This admiral feller ought to be removed from the U.S. Navy and moved over to the Department of Interior and let him take care of monitoring, elk, moose and deer, being that according to the same roster of government imbeciles, global warming is the biggest threat to our game herds and the government just can’t get enough wolves introduced to the landscape, with their mops and buckets, to clean up the mess and save the ecosystem.

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray to the wolves my soul to keep.
If global warming kills before I wake,
I pray the wolves my liver to take.

The world’s gone mad I tell ya! Mad, mad,
completely

MAD!
