Ok forgetting normal deployment of technology, and saying everyone in the world has their own personal transporter thing that let's them go anywhere? Yeah I think there would be problems! haha...

...but thinking now, I wouldn't sacrifice rabbits to do it. If the cost was like tway brought up, four rabbits to zip to london or what ever I wouldn't do it. Nor it if was four ants, or four lawyers.

Gelli, you mentioned that you would have a problem with it if it led to the extinction of the rabbits, however if the rabbits were farmed in a sustainable manner you wouldn't have a problem with it? I don't see how one is better than the other? Why does extinction make something more horrible?

Example? Sure ... let's say the Third Reich could kill jews, homosexuals, and other none-desirables at a sustainable rate. That the killing kept a consistent level of supply so the killing could continue at an even rate over a very extended period of time. Hmm.. doesn't sound better.

Brendan and Tway etc.
Rabbits wont become extinct. They spend most of their time making sure of it. But, use lawyers. I want them to become extinct. But not the ones that help people who are poor, or human rights lawyers. Just the others, and those people who come to my door looking to sell me telephone contracts, and the TV licence inspectors. ;)

I was actually worried about the three-toed Amazon sloth.

I understand exactly what your saying. My point (kind of) is that we killed all the Buffalo to eat and made them extinct [bad thing]. We farm cows, again to eat them, but because we farm them they aren't extinct.

Thus, to me the cows are better off than the Buffalo.

And to answer the question of why extinction makes things more horrible, I can't put it in writing. It just does!!!

Yeah. Kind of. I don't have a problem with the basic concept. Just the fact that people use them.

Yeah, he surely is.
Why is there always a Gelli, raining on our parade, as soon as some fun new stuff is invented????;)

because if there wasn't a Gelli 98% of the worlds population would rape and pillage the earth, in fact, i was in a psychology class and we all determined that without a Gelli in the world, society would only last 72 hours without one!..... some people believed it'd only be 48 hours! it could also result in a 67% rise in made up statistics during internet discussions, its a fact

Yeah exactly. He is singlehandedly making sure nobody has any fun. ;)
What good is preserving the earth, if we all have to be bored to death on it, because of people like Gelli?;)
Lucky for us, that governments and industries, dont seem to give a toss, about what he thinks.

You've been on here on TP long enough that you should know better than that.

You shouldn't think that Gelli is being awkward for the sake of being awkward. You should Know that he is

The really, REALLY scary thing (and even i find it really scary), is that actually, some of them do
