With winters getting warmer every year, it's only a matter of time before we are up to our necks in industrially poisoned ocean. Glaciers are receeding at an alarming rate and El Nino [irrelevant] only makes matters worse.
It's interesting, though, that with all the talk from liberal groups like the Sierra Club about how industry [use of parallel language to highlight contradiction with previous paragraph] is the culprit, that we come to find out that it might be the SUN ITSELF that's depleting the ozone layer [subtle: not the same as global warming]! In the wake of the recent CBS debacle [completely gratuitous political remark -- nearly all of my slashdot posts contain at least one], maybe it's time we started viewing such activists with a more suspicious eye [joke/weirdness: CBS's logo is an eye -- my posts are full of things like this].
Maybe it's time we stopped looking for more problems on earth, and start looking to controlling threats from outer space [nearly a direct quote from a famous Reagan speech] -- threats like solar storms and asteroids [irrelevant, but vaguely connected to article -- my favorite type of offtopic nonsense]. With our current level of intercelestial preparedness, it would take only one oversized meteor or a solar storm to fry this intergalactic [repetion of lexical elements] backwater [hgtg] we call earth to a crisp. We need to step up efforts to expand orbital missile defense [recall: this article is about global warming] and lunar and martian defense outposts [i've suggested we expand such outposts] or we'll have only ourselves to blame when some freak cosmic event destroys life as we know it.
i would like to draw the reader's attention to the surrealistic elements of the above post. it is my expert opinion that surrealism is one of the single most effective and entertaining tactics in oppressive moderation environments. it allows a radical degree of freedom in subject matter, throws the idiocy of biters into greater relief, and confuses biters and moderators alike, deterring negative moderation and increasing the hilarity of responses -- unfortunately, since this is a slashdot post, all of the responses are the same, but generally, one gets more amusing responses using this tactic.
unfortunately, slashdot trolling is too labor intensive (constantly looking for a new article, having to think of something to troll about even when you don't know anything about the topic at hand, and then write the damn thing in under three minutes) for me and i'm really too busy for any sort of serious trolling -- except dailykos diary trolling (which i highly recommend to anyone with the creativity and cleverness for it). my most recent works there have used surrealism (particularly in the sense of brecht) to very good effect. of course, my skill in impersonation of females and ability to create a convincing narrative voice are crucial to my success and i wouldn't expect any of you to be able to replicate it. even so, i would be interested to read any works of active dailykos trolls, so shoot me a gmail if you have any good material.
by the way, i've been particularly interested in wikipedia trolling these days. some of you may be aware of the outstanding work of "deeceevoice." i particularly recommend to troll afficianados "her" works surrounding the semi- and especially super-conductivity of melanin and its connection to "soul." if anyone has contacts within the wikipedia trolling community or any knowledge about it, i'd be interested to hear about it.
