“This means you, Leatherface!”
(Honestly, I need to know the story. Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?)
“Social media users who say they witnessed the incident described seeing men wielding chainsaws in the trail leading up to Cherry Beach.
“Two guys with chainsaws covered in blood charging people,” posted one Twitter user yesterday morning.””
Or it’s just a gag. Homemade sign.
Should be “are”, not “is”.
In this instance, “is” modified “use” which is singular. Therefore, “is” is correct. If it just said “chainsaws” then “are” would have been correct.
the zombie lobby is flexing its muscle.

[sigh] Oregon …
lots of drift logs wind up on these beaches. They are excellent firewood. (water only permeates a few inches of the wood; the rest is well cured.) The logs are often massive, so firewood gatherers saw them up on the beach to make them easier to move. A nuisance because of noise and sawdust, and in some places it’s illegal to harvest drift logs.
Knowledgeable, logical, rational; how did you end up here?!
My career as a beach logger hit a snag.
Totally undocumented, but, isn’t it one of the rules of the ocean that anything that floats in the ocean will eventually be deposited on a beach somewhere by the ocean. It is one the ocean’s self-cleaning mechanisms as far as I’ve seen. The only living thing I have ever witnessed, in my life, that is in opposition to nature are us homo sapiens.
OK, this: “Even if we take a figure in the lower range of [extinction] estimates, say thirty-thousand species per year, the implication is still startling…Extinction at the rate of thirty-thousand a year is elevated 120,000 times above background… Homo sapiens is poised to become the greatest catastrophic agent since a giant asteroid collided with the Earth sixty-five million years ago.”

That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
Planet lice; cosmic crotch-crabs. Agitating the hide of a far greater organism, one ridding itself a pestilence. The nutballs are right: we can’t “destroy the world” we live on, at least until we can build a death-star that can actually blow one up, but we’re proving remarkably adept at destroying the only part of the planet we can live in. I’m guessing there’s no Vegas-odds on whither or no we make as they’re confidant no one will be around to collect.
Whether it is age or otherwise it is becoming harder to hold a positive outlook for us as species, if not down right impossible. The question remains, how much damage will we foment before we do ourselves in along with other species of living things.
