    I thought this was a pretty neat study. Scary, but neat. They say the number got as low as 2,000....possibly.

    I guess humans started burning fossil fuels to rapidly heat the globe and create a world-wide drought.

    If that's true, someone had better tell WJ that he's descended from Africans. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Endangered species, caged in fright,
    Shot in cold blood, no chance to fight.
    The stage is set, now pay the price.
    An ego boost, dont think twice.
    Technology, the battles unfair,
    You pull the hammer without a care.
    Squeeze the trigger that makes you man,
    Pseudo-safari, the hunt is canned...
    The hunt is canned.

    All are gone, all but one.
    No contest, nowhere to run.
    No more left, only one.
    This is it, this is the countdown to extinction.

    Tell the truth, you wouldnt dare.
    The skin and trophy, oh so rare.
    Silence speaks louder than words.
    Ignore the guilt, and take your turn.
    Liars anagram is lairs,
    Man you were never even there.
    Killed a few feet from the cages,
    Point blank, you're so courageous...
    So courageous.

    One hour from now,
    Another species of life form
    Will disappear off the face of the planet
    Forever...and the rate is accelerating.

    All are gone, all but one.
    No contest, nowhere to run.
    No more left, only one.
    This is it, this is the countdown to extinction.

    You'd have to ask him. He's the one who keeps saying they're genetically inferior. ;)
