We have a Tree Hugger Here. Anybody else wanna weigh in?
Anonymous thinks I’m a bad man because I think shark culls are a good thing. Anyone else have an opinion?
Yep. I think that you have a personal beef with sharks because you’re a surfer, and since you therefore splash around quite a bit in the ocean you are deeply invested in an all-consuming fear of sharks.
Since you are completely terrified of sharks and firmly believe that their mere existence is a threat to your recreation, you want them to be slaughtered so that your fun is not in any danger.
You go splashing around half-naked in their home, and when they occasionally nip at the strange thing that is acting like a wounded fish you decide to whip out the big guns.
I mean, what’s next? Let’s go kill all the wolves, they have teeth. Let’s kill orcas, they kill sharks which means that they’re even more dangerous. Let’s kill dolphins, they kill sharks too. Let’s kill lions, them’s got big teeth. Let’s kill tigers, they actually eat people. Let’s kill jaguars, coyotes, panthers, pumas, snakes, spiders, jellyfish, man-o-wars, what have you.
Hell, let’s kill every single creature on this ugly rock that’s ever been recorded as hurting humans ever.
Hey, why stop there? Dogs are super dangerous, they bite/maim/kill people yearly. Let’s kill them, too. Cats can kill people with rabies, better kill them off while we’re at it. In fact, rabies can infect quite a few critters. Let’s kill them too.
Or maybe, just maybe, you’re a spoiled little brat who cries because there’s a chance that a shark might bite you when you go surfing on its turf, so therefore you want the big tough government to come wipe them out. You have no grasp on what the fuck an ecosystem is, and you have no comprehension of what the fuck can happen to an ecosystem when you cull predators. Hell, culling any species is a shitty idea because whatever shortsighted plan we put in motion ALWAYS ENDS BADLY for the ecosystem of that area.
But no it’s fine. We gotta kill the great white sharks off so that you can enjoy some goddamn surfing.
Fucking self-centered prick. Great whites aren’t “herd” animals, either, so you don’t even know shit about what you’re talking about. Do you know what culls a herd? PREDATORS. Do you know what great whites are? PREDATORS. So should we go cull all of their prey too once we fuck up this shit? Might as well nuke the sea, don’t wanna ruin your precious fun time.
I fucking hate people who try to act like it's a hippie thing
a surfer that hates nature though
that's a new one
