Talk:825: Guest Week: Jeffrey Rowland (Overcompensating)
The Turkey Voluntary Extinction Movement has to be a riff on the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (www.vhemt.org [I'm not sure what the "t" is doing there] ). Alas, their primary purpose seems to be selling TShirts (their site concludes with the FAQ Question: How do I order stickers, T-shirts, and stuff?)Traveller (talk) 23:06, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
- The "t" is probably there so the acronym can be pronounced "vehement". And the lack of organization is probably because it is no organization but a movement, i.e. just some people advertising an ideology. Their primary purpose is to convince you not to have kids.

Removed the bit about supposed turkey stupidity. There's no evidence (aside from "everybody knows/says" type arguments) to support it, and plenty to discredit the assertion. See, for example: http://extension.oregonstate.edu/news/release/2003/11/osu-animal-scientist-debunks-dumb-turkey-myth Orazor (talk) 10:33, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps the dark matter/consciousness correlation is a reference to Dust in Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials"?
I don't know anything specifically about Jeffrey Rowland's necrosis, but as a general point, I'm going to stand up for the brown recluses here: https://spiders.ucr.edu/myth-brown-recluse-fact-fear-and-loathing L-Space Traveler (talk) 12:23, 5 November 2022 (UTC)
