Endangered Species Condoms 61 61

The Center for Biological Diversity wants to help put a polar bear in your pants with their endangered species condom campaign. They hope that giving away 100,000 free Endangered Species Condoms across the country will highlight how unsustainable human population growth is driving species to extinction, and instill the sexual prowess of the coquí guajón rock frog, nature's most passionate lover, in the condom users. From the article: "To help people understand the impact of overpopulation on other species, and to give them a chance to take action in their own lives, the Center is distributing free packets of Endangered Species Condoms depicting six separate species: the polar bear, snail darter, spotted owl, American burying beetle, jaguar, and coquí guajón rock frog."

She could have called Verizon and said "I have a Dell computer with Ubuntu and cannot use my Verizon DSL CD. How can I get online?" When the Dell rep told her that she can do everything she needs to do on this computer (ie, create Word docs), she could have asked "How do I do that?" She did neither (correct me if I'm wrong; I read the article yesterday), and instead called the local media to whine about it. She followed the advice of the "expert" but failed to ask how; that's a lack of problem solving skills, IMO.
