Bears have been sighted in areas that they have not been seen before. (At least not since neighborhoods started going in.) Likely a result of much less cars on the road making it less scary for bears to wander around looking for food.
The unintended consequences.
Social Media - A platform that makes it easier for the crazies to find each other.
Everyone is born right handed. Only the strongest overcome it.
Fight for left-handed rights and hand equality.
We are bad for everything.
We kill flora and fauna and we take, take, take.
We take plants, animals, water, sand, dirt, rocks, minerals, metals and we spew pollution in its place.
And with nearly 8 billion people we do so at an alarming pace.
In fact, we're not only killing plants and animals, I am pretty certain we'll end up killing ourselves.
If not from global warming, we'll all die from pollution or maybe some nuclear war because we're all fighting over the last bits of resources.
Did you know we'll have an alarming sand shortage (used for building houses) within 30 years if we don't come up with an alternative?
It's not even a matter of if, but when.
Sure, a bear eats a fish, but it doesn't kill all fish until there are no more left, like we are currently doing.
Basically every other plant and animal keeps the ecosystem in balance, except us.
We destroy the ecosystem until nothing but we can live in it.
Except mosquitoes I think.
Those buggers are really just here to bug us.
Probably our only real natural enemy.
They kill more than 14 times as many people a year than the number 2 deadliest animal, snakes.
Perhaps if mosquitoes disappeared, all life would end because we could flourish instead
If you believe in evolution then you know without a doubt that animals were first, humans later. And the human evolution started as primates. Homo Sapiens (us, more or less) showing up in Europe around 70-100 thousand year's ago, originally migrating from Africa.
Our ancestors only hunted and gathered what they needed, not what they wanted. We, present day, can't even do that. As a species, we suck.
