Are You a Dinosaur?

Posted by feww on December 22, 2007

Top ten ways to know you are a dinosaur:

1. You and your partner, or other members of your species, have laid or intend to lay more than one or two eggs throughout your lifetime.

2. The overall numbers of your species are exponentially increasing.

3. Your consumption habits cause deforestation, habitat destruction and species extinction.

4. Have a larger ‘footprint’ than other animals.

5. Hoard too much stuff.

6. Move around a lot.

7. Your dirt is getting bigger than the environment can absorb.

8. Commit cannibalism of same species eggs [aka, WAR.]

9. Instead of adapting to, you are destroying nature.

10. Using more energy and materials than the previous generations, therefore, you are regressing rather than evolving.
