    Yes I was kidding, but you got my meaning , right?

    I have to agree that humans were not intended to eat the flesh of animals. A creationist may argue that the problem arose when we no longer had access to a paradise where everything(fruit and nuts) grew on trees, and was fresh and ready wherever we wanted something to eat. Being exposed the elements for a day or two without access to large amounts of protein, can quickly transform even the most dedicated vegan into a ravenous beast.

    You are right in that this is off topic, but I only wanted to separate Bob Parson from hunters in general. I think I've done that.

    I see what you're saying. And many years ago, I agree hunting/eating animals was probably something required for survival if you couldn't get your hands on vegetation.

    However, in our current time, most of us have access to plant sources of food whenever we need it. Grocery stores and farms provide us with whatever food we need to survive. Unless you're living in a remote part of the world with no farms, gardens, or stores, then hunting animals is NOT required for survival in modern times.

    But yes I agree that Bob Parsons is not the definition of what a hunter is considered, so I do see your point. He killed that elephant just for his own ego, not because he was hungry and needed to eat or even to feed that village. He's using the fact that the village got to eat the elephant to try and make it look less serious.

    Thanks for posting this video. It is amazing what the Elephant can learn to do.

    I went to his blog and let him know he got my last dollar. Yes I had been with them for a while but no longer.

    Wow thanks for sharing this. I hadn't heard about it until now. Just transferred all 24 of my domain names to namecheap. They have extended their promotion to transfer from Godaddy.

    Sent it on down my FB list. I imagine Uncle Bob is going to get some Nasty-Grams from a couple of the seriously hard-core animal lovers on my list. They ain't a bit bashful when it comes to animal abuse.

    I've never been a big fan of GD, and the domains I HAD there, aren't there anymore.

    Bob Parsons. Douchebag Extraordinaire. :fuckyou:

    Thats horrible, I posted it on my twitter, just because this is horrendous. You would think the owner of go daddy would have something wiser to do with his time.

    I took the video that he posted, and reposted it on YouTube... I think it has more than 12k views now. I also put it up on my Facebook page, and sent it out to my Twitter THREE times...

    It's so disgusting I can hardly believe it's real? After all those April Fool jokes, are you sure this is real?

    It's a sad story but a good initiative from bhw.

    I just pushed it out on my personal facebook, twitter and blog. Hope it might prevent other people from doing something that sad!

    Just to remind you, ok godaddy is bad what he did was stupid and offensive, but there is much worse coming from other hosting/domain companies i garantee you, so don't make too big a deal out of it.

    If you don't like it, transfer your domains to namecheap (like me), but that's all really.

    Yea this is just dumb of him. Not sure what the hell he was thinking. It will not shut goDaddy down but I'm sure it will effect them as a company over all bottom line and stocks.
