Well, the definition of life the universe and everything is obviously 42 (as calculated by Deep Thought, the most powerful and intelligent computer in the unvierse - at least for a period of time)

Just for the record, there are no facts of science. There are inductions and deductions many scientists have gathered and many people accept, but no facts.

What point were you trying to make here?

Jason, I never said I had disdain for the firefighters, and I wasn't trying to imply that. I have no problem with what they are doing directly, but the people who send the firefighters out were somewhat wrong in the matter. I do not agree with Ronnie that all living things are equal. I believe that we are better adapted to living than, say, a cucumber.
The only animals I have regard to are usually cute, fluffy, and pretty. I have a certain regard to humans, but I don't like how we have become to be, I even look at myself in distaste sometimes.
To state my point clearly:
I wouldn't have liked the outcome from this fire anyway. Obviously a vast amount of emotional distress was created by the incident. In order to prevent myself from that distress I look at it as an insignificant loss of lives in comparison to the other 6 billion humans out there. It doesn't help me to feel what the families are feeling and start feeling depressed, because I don't think there is a point to be made to the govmnt.

I'm pretty sure no one will believe me, but I did not post under thetruth. I think it's kindof funny that I'm stealing his credit. I think an administrator could check to see if the IPs are different.

Soon the water in your sweat drenched clothes would turn to steam, burning you until it evaporated. It now gets harder to breathe and your intakes of breath are beginning to sear the inside of your mouth, your nose, your throat, and your lungs. You will begin to smell the hair on your body burning, while you still can smell. Eventually your very breaths are what will kill you, as the super-heated air you inhale finally takes its toll. You would have wished it had happened before you felt your eyes and your skin burn with an unimagineable intensity.
That's exactly what I mean.

Personally, I would like love to die from some natural disaster, but that's beside the point.
-I believe that this really detracts from any point you are trying to make. I am sure you offended people by doing this, and it was not very mature at all.

Jason, you ARE a fool. Ronnie here didn't say the firefighters were incompetent, he said YOU are. Wow, learn to read.
You aren't very modest about your accomplishments, which makes me suspicious. I know for a fact that Ronnie and I have both done a hell of a lot of volunteering for our age: 15.
I don't think you, Jason, or you Greg, realize that some people have different values. Personally, I would like love to die from some natural disaster, but that's beside the point.

If the point is to preserve life, I would think that preserving an endangered species' life would be more important than 4 out of 6 billion human lives, a couple of trees,and a couple of squirrels. It seems to me that the people who sent the firefighters out didn't think about what resources were available. It might have been smart to plan out getting water from the closest water resource available for their use instead of assuming people would see it their way and let them use the closest water resource (which was inhibited by endangered fish).

I just noticed that only regestered users can post here now, does anyone no when and why this happened?

You must realize that different people have different values. I believe birds are the highest order of everything, but that's just me. I would not mind dying for another animal's life, but that's not the issue we're discussing here. What happened, was a couple people died in a forest fire because other people couldn't get the water needed to stop the fire because the water was going to be taken from a source that was preserving animal life. I don't like it at all.
- People died
- Part of the forest was burned down
If they did take the water, this would have happened
- (Probably) no people dead
- (Probably) less forest would be burned down
- The fishies lives would be more endangered
As I see it, it is a lose lose situation. I really don't know what I would have done. All I was stating was that the precursing events that lead to the situation were not smart on our part. But we can't change the past.
