We should lock up all the unreasonable people in a small closet (small relative to however many we end up putting in there) and then throw a bag of extremely testy North American badgers in there with them.

Then they'll see what unreasonable is all about.

Naturally, I'm full of crap on this. I mean that's just the sort of thing all the other people that "KNOW WHAT'S BEST" would do.

You'd need more than one bag of testy badgers to deal with ALL of the unreasonable people.

Methinks you underestimate the damage a pissed off badger can do.

Once, when I lived in Idaho, a single badger killed a full grown Bison. Of course, the badger died too, but it died well I'd say.

this gives me the mental image of a really pissed off badger ripping a bison to shreds, and then still being so angry that he just expodes out of sheer rage.

They are close cousins of wolverines. I remember actually seeing an epsode of wild america where a badger managed to fend off a PAIR of wolverines Shocked Shocked

why is everybody defending the forum's ability to have a reasonable discussion? i didn't read the original post as being about 'festers. i read it as an "in general."

the reason it's so hard to have a reasonable discussion is that people's beliefs on these subjects are not based on reason.

mantismag: I keep forgetting to point out that that quote that you have attributed to me is actually me quoting Tat.

badgers are fucking bitches... my friend hit one going 65 damn thing nearly wrecked his car and killed him. He wasnt quite sure what he had hit (they tend to be like little invisible speedbumps.) so he turned the car around to see what had happened... it was late so there werent many cars and he was going to try to get the corpse off the road so no one else would hit it and face what he had... fucking thing started hissing at him got up and ran in the sage brush. You CANNOT kill a fucking badger man. I know several other people (albeit in somewhat less OMFG how the fucking hell did that happen circumstances) that have dealt with them no matter how much punishment youve inflicted on the little sonsofbitches the best you can hope for is to have wounded them.

it is? hrrmph. well it's funnier when you say it. Razz i guess i'll change it. it's not the same if i attribute it to whichever character it was. upon further inspection you embellished the quote with an extra word. i'll leave it for now.

it is quite possible to converse reasonably from a mad position, and madly from a reasonable position, and this happens all the time because it is in the nature of people to be both reasonable and mad, and not at all in our nature to be solely one or the other for any extended period of time, certainly not the time it takes to have an in-depth discussion. but this should not be a cause of concern, since history has shown that the truth can be arrived at from either direction.
