The Bermuda triangle [Feb. 27th, 2006|10:33 pm]

I knew it wasn't going to be a good computer day when I hear my loaner computer sputtering and clunking from a few feet away. I'm crossing my fingers that I won't destroy the next loaner they give me *l*

There has been a lot of talk lately about shutting down the Detroit Zoo because the city of Detroit doesn't have the funds to keep it open. I know I hold a minority viewpoint of hoping the Zoo closes, period. As soon as I heard the story about how the city wanted to close it, I wondered how soon it would be before all the news stations started their own Save the Zoo campaigns. I found it a bit ironic to see a segment on Saving the Zoo followed by a segment on the problem of coyotes in the suburb where I live. http://www.thenewsherald.com/stories/022606/loc_20060226005.shtml

I don't like zoos. I never have, even when I was a kid. Perhaps having read and watched so much sci-fi influenced me when I was a kid, and I always thought that one day we, humans, would be in those cages.
Every time I looked at the animals, I thought they were terribly sad and bored; and I also thought it was obscene of us to be watching them like that.
Adults used to tell me to not stare at people, so why the hell was it OK to stare at animals? Especially ones that couldn't hide from us. It felt like I was invading their privacy.

Then one day I found out the grinds were already moving to make my nightmare come true. And I realized I wasn't feeling too bad about humans... I thought we had it coming.

In regards to your comp... wow... you broke my personal record. e_e

Zoos are incredibly depressing to me. the last one I went to was the Bronx Zoo (one of the saddest places in the world), and that trip pretty much killed any lingering desire in me to visit one ever again.
