i don't think that 1/8 of all birds are necessarily at risk..... rather 1/8 of bird species.

no less concerning, just different....

and fwiw, it wouldn't be all that surprising to me to discover that 1/8 of all mammal or amphibian species were also endangered.

The fastest growing population is India at the moment (I'm not completely sure, but last I read) and India has a huge poverty issue and they also have some of the world's most polluted cities and some of the highest carbon outputs.

yes, this would be, but again it'd be a result of something else. trace the problem to the origin and fix it, instead of just looking at a layer of it.

Ok pzabs, I'll get right on putting a stop to all those poor people from pumping carbon into the atmosphere. I think if you do a minute's worth of real research instead of faulty reasoning, you'll see that countries like India are making shit for us.

And Sao Paolo has one of the smallest carbon footprints per capita on earth. How can that be with so much overpopulation and so much poverty? Makes your head hurt huh? Surely they should be held responsible for a huge number of threatened bird populations.

Y! SPORTS

Greedy shoe companies making select sneakers needlessly exclusive paired together with consumer exuberance, desperation, and American gun culture on Saturday long enough to cost one would-be alleged robber his life. Shoppers waiting in line to purchase the latest incarnation of LeBron James’ signature shoe outside Atlanta were being harassed by a reported pickpocket until one patron decided to pull a gun out and shoot the as-yet unidentified man in what is being considered a move motivated by self-defense.

Witnesses told one man in line outside Wish, a clothing and shoe store on Moreland Avenue, pulled out a gun and shot the would-be robber.
The shooter then got back in line, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Police have not charged anyone and for now consider the shooting to be self-defense. No additional information was being released Sunday morning, said Officer John Chafee, an Atlanta Police Department spokesman.

Only 22 pairs of the sneakers were available, but that didn’t stop nearly 50 shoppers from lining up hours before the store opened. The shooting took place at 5:30, five hours before Wish opened its doors to LeBron’s fans.

One witness says the deceased got what he deserved. From the Journal-Constitution:


“He [the shooter] really stood up for all of us,” said Taylor White, who told Channel 2 that he was in line when the shooting happened. “I salute the homie that did that.”

Here is a picture of the shoes, retailing at $180, which caused the line, the panic, and the incident:

What an ugly ass shoe!

I'm still stunned that someone would shoot and kill someone then step back in line to buy a pair of shoes.
