Self-inflicted syntax wound

The Babalu site was FUBAR this morning as you may have noticed. I plead guilty. Two little tags missing. I guess I zigged when I shoulda zagged, I nipped when I shoulda tucked. It’s all fixed now, thanks to the lords of syntax.
As a treat, and to atone for my code-related sins, wrap yoursellves around this:

Humans are just one of the millions of species on Earth, but we use up almost a quarter of the sun’s energy captured by plants – the most of any species.

This is the first paragraph of an article that proclaims that human greed uses up more of the Sun than other species. Yes. You heard right. Humans are greedy, even when absorbing the Sun’s energy. We use up more than the fern. More than the yellow-bellied sapsucker. More than a centipedede. More than ants. More than Periplaneta americana. We are evil and greedy. And greedy and evil. And greedy. And evil. I confess to Almighty Gore, and to you my brothers and sisters, that I have sinned.
Folks, nobody can make this stuff up. This is too deliciously stupid to be fiction. DIckens’ characters are more believable than this tripe. This is idiocy of Einsteinian order, of new heights. If we allow these people to run the planet, I guess we’ll end up in caves — again.

  1. Has someone checked whether July 3rd in Australia is the equivalent of April 1st in the U.S.? How else to explain it?
    This has to be tongue in cheek.
