Had a lovely-lovely time at the Tucson Festival of Books.
Strip a tiny bit late, I forgot what time zone I was in.
Um. Here’s a picture of the Tucson Campus, with some of the tents of the fest on the left edge. Dear god, I think the Tucson desert is gorgeous.
Dusty, interplanetary relationship therapist and sex surrogate. Well, they could have been having sex without his knowing it. By his expression, he was hoping not.
…so close to Dustin learning empathy and growing…and then pulled away. Ah well.
And “she” had a double set of hooters, too. Ask Dimitri, Dustin doesn’t know what he’s missing out on with “aliens”.
Dustin must feel so…used…
*wincing at the overuse of “awesome”*
first reaction: ahh, the colours!!! my poor eyes
second reaction: poor former destined ruler of dustinia…
So basically humans are universal estrogen/testosterone bait?
We’re like, the Thai ladyboys of the galaxy? Every species is just going to come here for tawdry sex holidays and treat us as fetishised sex objects instead of people?
…I’m cool with that. Mmm, tentacles.
OH MY GOD MY EYES.
And oh boy, poor Dustin.
Ooooh my eyes.
Talk about used. The Eebs surely used Dustin and his many clones anesthetized orifices in some first rate “Probing” videos. Millions of viewings per planet.
Spit-take! Heeheehee! Danny Thomas lives…
Took a universe to do it but someone legitimately Trolled Dustin.
And the father just sits there with a big grin on his face. Humph. Just think: in the right hands (or hand analogues), this could be the perfect beginning of a Roger Corman family classic, like “Scream of the Demon Lover” or “Not Of This Earth”. (Or would this be “Battle Beyond the Stars”?)
So how do we know this isn’t standard practice among the Tornites? Maybe polyandry, or some kind of open relationship, is a common thing there.
Not that Dustin, a rather jingoistic and conservative Aussie boy, would go for any of that. And like aliens?! Ewwwwwwwww!
Or so he would say.
Funny thing about deserts. over 40 years ago, Dr. Allan Savory calculated 40,000 elephants had to be killed to save their habitat. Other experts agreed and 40,000 elephants were killed. Desertification of their habitat drastically accelerated.
He recently did a presentation on why he was wrong and why every “expert” that insists that large herds of animals, especially livestock, are bad for the land are wrong. Good to see that some of them can admit it when they’ve massively screwed up! http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/03/08/a-bridge-in-the-climate-debate-how-to-green-the-worlds-deserts-and-reverse-climate-change/
Odd how nobody ever mentions that this person’s misguided recommendation is the real reason African elephants became an endangered species.
Allen Savory then went on to found a method for managing land called Holistic Management to teach the lessons he learned along the way.
First thing I noticed was the colors.
Second thing was Barbot’s head, which looks funny sitting in its own armchair. 🙂
Kinda sad for Austrailian dude. I mean it might showed that his stupidity and nationalism might be part of his loneliness.
