It's not farming, building and hunting that hurts the animal population. it's doing it in MASS QUANTITIES from overpopulation.

The american indians managed the land and it's resources just fine, It's the assholes from europe that wiped out most everything because of stupidity.

Just like how the Wolf population crashed horribly due to idiot farmers killing every wolf they see because they are too lazy to protect their livestock properly.

It's effortless to get the snip, then you don't have to worry if the doc does it right where it's non reversible. I.E. he snaps the vas, seals the ends then folds them back 1/2 an inch back on themselves and uses basically a surgical ziptie to hold them there. there is ZERO chance of the Vas reconnecting.

Real men get their Vas snipped. You do not "need" to have any more kids.

No you cant. Once you grow a GMO crop your fields are contaminated with the crap for years. and if your neighbors are growing it, you are FUCKED. as the cross pollination will taint your entire crop and then yuo get fined for growing a monsanto crop without a licensing fee because the genetic markers are there.

Why dont you actually TALK to a farmer, I have 3 in my family and I know the reality of this. You grow what your neighbors are growing because you have a legal nightmare trying to sell your crops if it's patent tainted by cross pollination.

It is not the nutbag "It's poison" argument the wierdows make that is driving their decision. Allowing GMO allows Monsanto to OWN your country's crops. With the United States poised to defend corporate patents with guns and missile strikes, nobody sane would allow patent encumbered life in their country.

Port it? are you really that completely clueless?

You simply fucking compile it with the same compiler flags you used for the first version. Compiling android 5.1 for a 4.4.4 phone is absolutely trivial.

And how about just release the god-damn bootloader lock so if people want to do it themselves on out of warranty hardware, they can. HTC and Samsung HATE their customers by locking the bootloader down so hard it's insane. Latest samsung phones are deemed to never EVER be able to run a full cyanogenmod.

Both. When the batteries are full I pump excess back to the grid.

I still have another 10 years on my batteries (5 years old, batteries last 15 years typically in properly designed solar), so not a problem. The solar panels have another 25 years before replacement.
