"Earth" is a human concept, with variant meanings.  Do you mean Gaia?  But justice, that is a purely ape concept.

Indeed it is.  And we named it.  Both the planet and the concept.

I can name my cup of tea, "Fred" ... but that shouldn't imply that it is animate or human.  The concept with the name in that case, is ridiculous.

Welcome to Fred.  But you missed my point.  I wasn't saying that "Gaia" means anything.  My point as that we have the intelligence to think of whole spaces, domains, terrains, a planet. and a universe.  And no other creature here does.

What if that is a bug, not a feature?

When the aliens arrive, tell them that tobacco, alcohol, and gambling is a "feature".  And then dare them to eliminate those "features" among us.  I mean, if they arrive and if they can, that wouldn't be a bad start.

Getting up in the morning is a gamble.  So is taking a shower.  Are you Swedish?

I'd tell the both of you to get a room, but you already got a thread. :p

Getting up in the morning is better than the alternatives.  Showers are optional if I'm not meeting anyone that day.  In fact, the cats like me better unshowered.  In fact, "squared", they would probably prefer I smeared myself with sardines...

Per my genetic test results I am not Swedish or anything Scandanavian.  French, German, Iberian, Welsh, Scot, and Irish, (in other words, "English") and some one from the Middle East was in my past.  Well, if you are OOA, your ancestors went through there!

I am reminded of a joke with King Kong climbing the Empire State Building and, looking in one window says "get a room".  And the people inside say "we're IN a room". 

But I only joke with Baruch when I bored and there is no one better to talk to.  So get more active!  Everyone!

I liked the joke.  More human, less bear.

I'm always a rational human.  Cavebear is just a handle.  I know the difference.
