...just like the Shakers: The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement

Phasing out the human race by voluntarily ceasing to breed will allow Earth's biosphere to return to good health. Crowded conditions and resource shortages will improve as we become less dense.

Obviously the environmentalist movement carried to its logical conclusion... Devil

Anybody remember the National Lampoon's travelling stage
by Ziks511 / February 18, 2005 12:33 PM PST

show called "Lemmings", a take off on Woodstock, with the premise that "we all owe it to Mother Earth to off ourselves". It was the first place I ever saw John Belushi and the place where he originated his Joe Cocker impression.

It came complete with the stage announcements like "Stay away from the Brown Strychnine. It's been laced with Acid"; and "The Grateful Dead will be unable to appear. They're dead, and we're grateful."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
