I think the term "aggie" originally referred to somebody going to college to study agriculture and for Texas A&M University, became the "pet name" of somebody who graduated from there (I think the "A&M" stands for "Agricultural and Military", not 100% sure). Anyway, the stereotype of Texas + agriculture = backwards farmer, hick, bubba, red-neck, etc. Also, it's a university rivalry thing; people from one school start making jokes about people from another and this one just sort-of grew outside of university life and so we tell "Aggie jokes" here -- sort like like "blond jokes"... Example: "Q: How many intelligent aggies does it take to screw in a light blub? A: Both of them"
Oh, and Professor "Fulkin Klewlis" ... as in "f*ckin' clueless"
Anyway... I'm not to worried about Mother Earth in the sense that we will destroy Her, I don't think we are significant enough to do that. We have hurt Her a great deal however, and I know that She's going to have to do what She has to do.
But I'm not too caught up in doom and gloom... So we'll experience rapid depopulation, life will go on. Let's be realistic, it's only natural that this would follow a massive population spike (i.e., the last 200 years or so). If we stay focused on the negative, we'll miss the greater part of life, which is all of the beauty in the world and all around us. I don't live in a fairy tale, I like to be aware of what's happening, but I don't like to stay fixated on the negative aspects thereby shortchanging myself and others. Hah! The end of the world as we know it doesn't have to be the "end of the world"
