    Yikes!!!

    I hate to see movies or tv shows, where they cut down trees! I feel bad for the trees! And it does make me flinch! Like in one of my favorite movies, Lord Of The Rings... well, in one of the triology, the bad guys cut down trees to make Orcs. I kept whinning and gasping, "...

    I Do More Than Flinch

    I get pissed off.  The place I live used to have a lot of wild places.  Stores, plazas and restaurants have taken over. I was so mad when Wal-Mart tore down a wooded area to build their store, that I refuse to shop there.  Overreaction?  Maybe. ...

    The Rain Forest

    I Agree!

    I live in Arizona and they are trying to tear down a lot of the desert to put up some weird home thing. I hate it and they are going to kill a lot of the animals that live in that area.

    Trees

    There are more than plenty of open spaces in Iowa. So why do the people in charge of things like state parks think that they need to tear down trees that have been there for a long time, and replace it with more boring prairie-type terrain? This area was originally, a very long...

    Not Just Trees...

    I hate it when people step on ants and millipedes/centipedes... i know some kids love to do things like that. Sometimes, sweet innocent young things like kids can be so cruel. I can never get used to people stepping on snails... intentionally/unintentionally.
