If I were in charge, I wouldn't have shot the gorilla and I don't think there'd be much of a controversy.

    This scenario was posed in an old tv episode: If a building was burning and you could save either your cat/dog or a priceless Van Gogh painting, which do you save?
    Here's where you and I differ I suppose.

    I see no use inventing and getting angry over a scenario that is likely not to ever exist in your lifetime. It's a waste of energy and you're getting upset for no reason. If it's something that could reasonably happen, then fine. But it isn't.

    Babies growing rapidly,
    An 'every cure' for inadequacy.
    Tumbling though air,
    panic for the loss of pride.
    Gorillas in the mist?
    They'll wish they had missed.

    Shut the door,
    retreat into lazy solitude.
    Je peux vous aider?
    Not likely.

    But no worries,
    bit light on the fixtures yknow?
    So leave it open,
    let the dust in.

    Don't trust the other side,
    they have the wrong kind of fear.

    I wasn't angry but I would love to see Seth Rogen mauled by an ape.
    If people had the emotional maturity to accept that others may have different views, the world would be a far better place.

    O'clock is a funny thing, it's a contraction of "of the clock", I suppose. I guess when clocks first came out and somebody asked you when you should meet up, and you answered, "10." They'd reply, "10 what? 10 crows of the rooster? 10 full moons hence? 10 shakes of a lambs tail? Speak plainly, kind sir."

    And a 'minute' is a small amount of an hour; a second is an even smaller division, a 2nd division of the hour.
