    I still make frequent use of CD-RWs and DVD-Rs for data storage and music mixes.

    Each year, hundreds of baby hummingbirds are killed by tree trimmers but there are hummingbird rescuers in several cities who will nurse them back to health if you deliver them in time. Also, hummingbirds don't eat ants; they'll die because they can't digest the exoskeleton of some insects.
    If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.

    Interesting...
    Let thought and reasoning be your guide, it certainly is mine!

    Always forward, never back!

    I'm an idiot, but I'm willing to learn. So that separates me from the idiot who isn't.

    If you find a bird's nest that's infested with mites, you can kill the bugs by dusting the birds and the nest with diatomateous earth; it's some sort of swimming pool product.

    He was a TV writer for many years. He wrote GoT intentionally as unfilmable because he was fed up with Hollywood after some failed pilots....
