Sqiushy, way to delete the graphic picture of the teenage girl you just posted. I took a screen shot of the entire post, username (that would be you) and all just in case you wanted me to re-post it later for you. It took all of two minutes for you to come to your senses and get rid of it huh?. Momentary lapse of judgement maybe? It happens. So, how long should the people of this forum crucify you now for being a pervert?
Now, if you'd just beat it all together. You ain't helping any causes.
Man you People up on you mighty high horses are fckin pathetic. Suppose you self richous hippys have never sat arround a campfire playing rosewood and mahogony guitars to the beat of hand drums made of koko bolo and exotic endangered brazilian wood..
Tradmanclimbs why don't you go play your mahogany guitar by the fireside and burn your Maple, Oak, Beech, Ash, Iron wood, white and yellow birch and cherry as you clearly don't get it.
I myself have been in arboriculture for 22 years and in that time I have removed many, many trees. Most were dead,in decline or a hazard with a target. I also burn firewood among other things but I still have the ability to see that some trees and tree species are far more valuable than others based on many criteria. It is sad that you can't grasp this.
You also mentioned your neighbour who burns juniper in New Mexico as if all junipers are the same. The junipers in the Pinyon juniper woodland of New Mexico consist of three other species of juniper all very common and spread across many states in the west. Juniperus occidentalis var. australis is neither common or widespread as it only grows in the mountain areas of California and NW Nevada.
Saying that we are all a bunch of hippie tree huggers because we feel strongly about this is quite simply a joke as I'm sure ST users are a very diverse group and come from all kinds of backgrounds and environments.
I have no idea what the age of the female was in the photo, and honestly I didn't bother to look and evaluate her age before posting the meme, I read the caption and thought it would fit the boob distraction, but I realized it was a distraction in itself and deleted it..
Sorry for the hippy comment. I do get the part of the really old and cool tree. I also see through the bullshit and recognize a rabid lynch mob when I see one. Lynch mobs being what they are the mob is never as just as they think they are.
you know patrick-based on this article it might be reasonable to think a more appropriate piece of gear being used might be something like a saw blade -it would seem mr kinder has more practice using it than placing actual gear....
