    to me. Just because it seems that way TO ME doesn't automatically mean you intended it that way. Site norms suggest that if one holds this view of a kossak's offering,

    This diary seems like a mojo fishing expo to me.
    and if that is all one can find to say about it, one should refrain from commenting at all. Common sense should dictate the same thing if you are sincere, because you've annoyed me enough to go through the whole thread and rec all the diarist's comments, even though I don't agree with the diarist's take on what Kos wrote. The diarist now has you to thank for the extra mojo.

    Enough fossil fuel remains on Earth to warm it 6 degrees C by 2100 AD if it is all used. A +6 C planet will only sustain half a billion humans. Human population will rise to 9 billion by 2050. Any questions?

    •  Whatever. If you don't recognize the tone (0+ / 0-)

      I can't help you.

      That's why this site gets played by trolls so hard.

      You all bite like blind fish.

        that describes you perfectly. Since the kossak minimum age is 13, I won't post it --but it begins with an 's' and is non-scatological. So all of us who disagree with you are beyond your help, O lofty one!

        Apparently you weren't paying any attention in biology class when your teacher explained that video by saying the blind fish weren't uselessly biting at possible food; they are 'tasting' an object's effluents in the water, to make sure they don't ingest something rotten.

        I'm delighted to admit I subjected your comment to the blind-fish taste test. The comment 'stank like a road-killed skunk' and I "blindly" rejected it. Care to "fish" for more compliments on your people skills? Step right up; I'll be here all active-thread.
