Opposing Forces  

I had the weirdest moment yesterday. I was browsing the web, minding my own business as usual, when I suddenly came face to face with My Polar Opposite:
evil Captain Kirk vs. Good Captain Kirk - who will prevail?
Invasive Species Weblog vs.

Do you see what I mean? I am frightened. Can we exist in the same cyberspace, or must I prepare for battle?


whoa, I thought I was good at finding strange intersections of view points or highlighting conundrums of seeming opposition

At least the site isn't suggesting introducing all of them to the pet trade.

Had this been a Mirror Universe Kirk vs. Kirk senario, you would be required to wax your goatee in preparation for battle. Fortunately it is as you suggest a simple Evil Kirk vs. Good Kirk senario, where neither can exist without the other.

I would think your polar opposite would be an invasives apologist site, dedicated to the unrestricted movement of plant and animal material across spacial gaps. I've met one or two seed collector / propogaters that might fit the bill, but have not run across their sites

Greenman, you're not going to force me to rewrite this post now, are you?

Nah. "Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes." Walt Whitman
