Ok, I’m going to have to preface this post by pasting in a comment from a past post. As you may be aware, I’m now prefacing that preface by explaining the preface. Ah what does a pirate know about prefacing anyway.
Oh wow! Okay, I feel I have been dumbed by your waxed up lyrical spew that you have placed up all over this page.
I happen to know Laurie personally and while he is a lot of things (selfish, arrogant and darn right annoying sometimes) he is a man of science. He is the type of boy that read and understood 1984 when he was in his 1st year of secondary school, he also used to quote off facts about the latest physicist break throughs (chaos theory, string ect.) and when he was made to come up with a general knowledge quiz’s all the adults that were questioned didn’t even get one question right. Now to me that sounds like someone who lives for science, he believes in it and supports it whole heartedly.
Now IF you had done some research or maybe even just looked at the pro-test website you will have seen that pro-test is for the advance in science. NOT against the ALF or PETA. It quite clearly states in one of the articles (and if you talk to Laurie on the subject of animal testing) that if there was an alternative to animal testing THAT WORKS AS WELL AS IT DOES then pro-test would be supporting that. You would also probably like to know that pro-test only supports testing of animals for medical advancement. Which in my opinion is something that we need. You state that “Man steam rolls over anything to improve our quality of life” well next time you are ill or you have a headache or heaven forbid you actually need to go into hospital about 90% of every procedure and 100% of all drugs you will receive have been tested on animals to prove they are safe for human use. Now you may say “but it doesn’t work!” ie there was that case about a year ago when 3 human test subjects for a new drug nearly died, this is bound to happen when you have millions of new drugs to test every year. Yet out of these millions of drugs only 1 or 2 slip through the net and rarely harm humans. And I am not going to get into a debate on whether we have the “right” to test on animals suffice it to say that we are far superior animals and much higher intellectually. But don’t forget the testing being done also benefits all animals in the home, held in captivity and in the wild. Also I think I should point out that many zoo’s have a better health care programme/animal hospital than more half the population of this world have access too. Maybe the ALF and Peta should go moan about that?
Also dude where do you get off raging into an insult frenzy about someone that you should have no time for or pay any attention to? Sounds to me that if Laurie was like you say he is, he would be having one huge wank over how much you and your friends have just talked about him!
Also I would like to point out that these spotty haired kids that he hangs out with are generally post grads from Oxford uni and the next generation of scientists that will be powering the scientific world in the years to come. Hence when you are old but you don’t have anything wrong with you because modern medical science has cured almost every affliction, except death, remember that you ripped on these people, the people that want to further the human race. If everyone was like you I think we would probably still be tadpoles. haha
My apologies for the grammer, idiocy and general length of this comment. I would also like to point out that I don’t normally cut and paste a comment for use in another post. The reason I’ve done so with this one is because I’ve been getting quite a lot of feedback on my post about the twa…. ahem… student, Laurie Pycroft. I’m not going to lengthen this post further by explaining why I put finger to keyboard about this insignificant little wart in the first place. If you want to know, you can read the post here
According to the author of the comment which has prefaced - or sub-prefaced - this post, Laurie Pycroft is some sort of intellectual God and all round good egg. He even made up “GENERAL KNOWLEDGE” quizzes that nobody could answer. To be honest, that makes him sound like an insufferable little bollox. I mean, what’s the point in making up a quiz if nobody can answer the fucking questions? It sounds to me that little Laurie had to impress upon those around him, the vastness of his intellect because he was the only one who was reminding himself of how smart he was. Poor little Laurie Py. Poor little boobums. Of course, he didn’t discover Orwell to later in life but we’ll forgive him that.
The point that I was trying to make about this little idiot is that he is the type of person who will do anything to be acknowledged. When Pro-test finally evaporate into the netherworld of their collective rectum, Laurie will probably pin his flag to the mast of something else - seal clubbing, for instance - just to promote himself. It doesn’t matter what the cause is because it is quite clear that nothing matters more to Laurie Pycroft than Laurie Pycroft. The one thing that the author of the comment is correct about is that I am indeed serving Laurie’s purpose by continuing to write about him. This will be my last post about the little turd.
I’d like to leave you now with a little general knowledge quiz.
1. On the 17th of July 2001, I invented an alternative name for soap and told nobody. What was that name?
2. On the 3rd of April 1996, the FBI finally caught the Unabomber. What was I wearing that day?
3. And finally… What was I planning on calling my pet budgie before I decided that I didn’t want a budgie?
