    While a man's campfire getting out of control is a natural cause of wildfires, our pollutions effect on the natural rate at which water evaporates is not.
    Our dryer-than-natural climate has caused the arth's natural warming to have extremes. For example, Colorado's winters no longer kill-off the Pine Beetle that now kills millions of evergreen trees unnaturaally, turning trees into not-natural kindling for even the sun's rays being focused off of a shiny rock, or a lightning bolt that would not otherwise have started a fire.
    Most of our fires are not "wild" anymore. They are caused by mankinds greed, not by mankind's campfires.

  2. bobcat (in a hat)©,

    After a bizarre cliff side accident, all eleven members of the women's outing found themselves hanging perilously from a rope over the edge of the cliff. Ten of the women were blondes and one was a brunette. After dangling there for a only a short while it became obvious that the rope would not hold all their collective weight. They decided that to prevent the rope snapping and killing them all, one of them must sacrifice themselves and let go, to save the others.

    Well they talked about it for a while but no-one could decide a fair way of of choosing who should jump. Finally, the brunette, exasperated by the indecisiveness of the blondes, could see that if nobody acted soon the rope was going to snap.

    To save the others she bravely decided that it must be her who made the sacrifice. She plucked up a little courage and told the others that she would jump to save them.

    After giving a short but very moving speech that she hoped would be remembered after she'd gone, the blondes were so moved that they all started clapping!

    COME ON! What erya doin'? Checking my spelling? (waiting for my not-politically correct joke to pass moderation) I've seen some that take 20 min. and longer to finish being moderated and finally posted.
    "The hell I won't" was the punchline. (shrug)

    No doubt it was something sarcastic aimed at the joking bobcat.
