He Also Hates Ice Cream, Pizza, and Warm Woolen Mittens
Sep 24, 2009
Prior to yesterday, I thought that people were mostly good. And then I read this article about a man who wants pandas to die.
According to the article:
The BBC wildlife expert Chris Packham has questioned the millions spent trying to save the giant panda from extinction and suggested that the bamboo-eating bear should be allowed to die out "with a degree of dignity".
Apparently Packham believes that, among other things, pandas are at an "evolutionary dead-end" because of their reliance on bamboo, and that it it makes sense to "pull the plug." Yes. Those are his words. Pull. The. Plug.
Seriously, Chris Packham? Anti-panda? That's the stance you're going to take? Really?
Needless to say, I am having a bit of trouble wrapping my head around this one. However, I am also curious to hear what other issues Mr. Packham has an opinion about. Maybe he his career goal is to find scientific reasons to hate things that were previously only thought to be lovable. If that's the case, I would like to propose some ideas for journal articles he could write. Like this:
Or maybe this:
He might as well. Once you're known as the guy who wants the pandas to die--well, it's not like you're going to come back from that. It's time to just enjoy being an asshole.
when i saw this ad i knew that the world is completly with problem, so keepin on the road and don´t look back.

I like how it's about letting them die with dignity. It's about time someone brought that up- frankly, I'm embarrassed for pandas and the whole 'will they or won't they (go extinct)?' thing has grown stale. Don't get me started on pride-robbed baby seals. If they wanted help not getting clubbed, they'd ask for it.
