I love panda's to bits!


I was really hoping that Mei Xiang at the National Zoo would have a new baby panda cub. For the last month she has been going through what they call a pseudopregnancy, they act as if they are pregnant but it is difficult to tell if a panda is really pregnant until the baby is born. But she wasn't pregnant...next year maybe!

You're a fool. Why on earth are we spending so much money on keeping Pandas alive? They are singularly unsuited for survival, for all the reasons you've no doubt heard all about. Here's the test. If you put all the Pandas back into the wild, in an environment untouched by human influence, stuffed full of all the things Pandas need, and just let them get on with it, they'd all die because they're so stupid/lazy/etc. Why don't we spend all that cash on an animal that actually contributes something, or one that has evolved a half-decent survival instinct and is only on the brink of extinction because of human influence? We spend millions on these things just so people like you can look at them and go 'awwww'. If they were ugly they'd be long gone by now, and you know it. They are the ultimate symbol of the shallowness of the modern human. Like when people look at hyenas and say they're horrible creatures when in fact they are very social animals, and very protective of their own. Lions, on the other hand, wander around, find a pride, kill the male(s) and ALL THE CUBS, then start impregnating all the females. But no one cares because don't they look magnificent?
I wish you did love pandas to bits. Lots of little bits that could be used to feed animals that actually have a point.
Finally, a piece of advice. When you choose a husband solely on the basis of the fact that he's cute and then he turns out to be a total bastard, don't try complaining to anyone, 'cause it'll be your own fault.
