Now that you mention it, I heard that anti-environmentalists have adopted new kamikaze tactics to combat the treehuggers. So you may be right.

You're catching on. Death is a Darwin Award prerequisite. I notice that the last two were given to idiots who, despite their idiocy, were fortunate enough to live and thus procreate, contributing to the dumbing-down of the Brookhaven area gene pool. Finally, a worthy recipient!

Alright! I'm so happy you finally got the Darwin Award thing right. Congrats!

Yes bt. I was so happy to find a bt approved example of a Darwin Award. I ran into the streets and was joined in by my neighbors for a musical ensemble. My face was filled with tears of joy as I was finally able to conform and meet your expectations.

Damn, sorry I missed all that. Next time perhaps. And it looks like I wasn't the only one that noticed. ;)

All kidding aside, keep up the good work.
