    Your point?
    ===
    I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to
    humans ("pure habitat"). Want to help? (I spent the previous 8
    years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)

    His point was quite clear. You don't think about what you are saying before
    you say it.

    BS. I think about things more than just about anyone I know. That's why I know
    more about these matters than you do.

    Okay, I will call your bluff. If I had "thought" about what I said, what would I
    have changed???

    Just like when you said that many of the tourists that died in the tsunami
    were there for mountain biking? Those are not mountain biking destinations.
    There's alot of cycling going on, but it's a mode of transportation not a
    sport.

    certainly don't bluff.
