    What's going on with the fish and birds?

    I don't believe the fireworks theory.

    Dead fish in Chesapeake Bay http://www.wbaltv.com/r/26357581/detail.html

    More dead birds http://www.2theadvocate.com/news/112843019.html

    More dead fish in Brazil http://translate.google.com/translat...ITORAL&act=url

    Seems hard to believe that these are not somehow all related in some way and the direct result of direct intervention of man. Terrorists? A Government?

    Could be. Could also be "yes we know but let's not panic the masses. Let's put our heads together and contrive a story".

    The Date on the Brazil link to me seems a tad questionable

    I'm thinking a controlled fish kill got out of hand and when the birds eat the dead fish...dead bird.

    I wouldn't eat any dead birds you see laying around.

    I think that is good advice pretty much all the time!

    newspaper had a picture of an EPA official with a chem suit and full respirator on (blacked out face shield) He was collecting birds off of a roof. The story went on to explain about fireworks killing the birds.


    um why does he need all that protection from a bird that died of shock?

    You got that right. I think it is similar to the the mandatory evacuation of a neighborhood for several blocks around if someone finds what appears to be a small hand grenade. The very effective AM61 Fragmentation grenade has a killing radius of 5 meters and a casualty producing radius (50% injury rate) of 15 meters with 5 ounces of explosive.

    Now all they would have to do is park their cruisers around the grenade and there would be no danger at all to anyone say 40 or 50 feet away much less in their house. But no they make a big deal out of it. Or the evacuation of a large building on the same scenario.

    I did the demo for my unit in Nam. Had the training and I know what I am talking about here. Just get sick at all the over blown BS when there is a suspicious small explosive found. Thank you, thank you very much

    The worry is there is more to the story than we are being informed of, rather than a PC over-reaction.

    Hmm, did not look at the date. Perhaps you stumbled upon something....it might just be time traveling aliens.
