Hey Paul probably cooked the racoons cousin during his past life as a gourmet chief. As they say what goes around, comes around. At least the racoon (ring tailed lemur actually!), doesn't have a cleaver.
I agree, nothing separates the survivors from the non-starters like Darwinian Natural Selection. The problem is that in spectating on this process, society (regulatory authorities) won't stomach the selection of canidates very well. They will likely step in "for our own good."
So cute animals don't do it. Too bad and all those hundreds of millions of dollars on past ad campaigns, ouch! I think that appealing to a person's sense of reason and desire for preservation both for himself and his freedom to pursue a sport as great as kiteboarding would govern too. It works for me and apparently for some of you folks as well.
I have come to the conclusion that many people won't act to preserve themselves or our access, until "they see the bodies." That is until they are sufficiently impressed by actual casualties and won't seriously considering taking reasonable precautions until the pile of injuries and seroius incidents is high enough. A sad commentary on human nature but things seem to support that conclusion. So what is wrong with a bit of satirical humor along the way, through animals in this case?
