an increase in incidents of human-elephant conflict motivated the sale of the large mammal that is at risk of extinction due to poaching and ecological factors.

Leave the animals, move the people.

Remember that discussion yesterday about what'll happen when vat-grown meat because cheap enough to produce at scale?

Before now, I never knew I needed an elephant...

I still don't. But, the headlines would be golden.

Will humans die before they are able to eradicate every other species?

Having a couple of elephants is my life-long dream.

CSS: My dream is to run an elephant rescue and sanctuary. If I could adopt elephants and give them a nice big area to safely live and be elephants, I'd go off and do that in a heartbeat. I follow quite a few of them for Asian elephants and I've visited a couple.

I hope these elephants end up in good hands and they don't separate families.

I stopped using and buying coconut oil. Orangutans are being killed to make room for coconut plantations. Anything goes when it comes to making money. We are the farking worst species of all. We've destroyed everything just to make a buck.  Climate change didn't happen on its own.  We helped!

Marcos P: Will humans die before they are able to eradicate every other species?


Probably. Cockroaches, certain other insects, something sea creatures or other small animals are very resilient. Human beings on the other hand need very specific environmental conditions and a huge amount of calories to survive. I don't think you could eradicate cockroaches without destroying ourselves first.
So at least the world has back going for it

Okay. But I'll need a couple large slices of cheese and two slices of bread the size of a queen sized mattress.

Ya got your elephant gumbo, your fried elephant, elephant coctail, elephant et toufe, elephant scampi and, uh, that's about it.
