The circle of life and mixed-use condominiums

I don't know these people, but this is from an exchange I saw on a closed forum about the plight of birds smashing into glass buildings. I <3 that last comment so much. (And wtf is wrong with people?)

I am copying this word-for-word.
Person A: In my two years here I've seen a stunned cardinal and a dead goldfinch, one unidentifiable bird being eaten by a squirrel, and this morning a robin. I saw the robin strike the research room window, land with a thud on the patio, and witnessed its final movements. I also suspect that the broken pane on the third floor was caused by one of the red-tailed hawks who frequent our roof. That or someone on the golf course has a wicked slice.

Idiot B: Survival of the fittest...lolololol. I've seen our fox chomp down his fair share of birds and I've seen the turkey vultures devouring whatever they can get their beaks on. Tis the circle of life. Ugly but true

Hero C: Ah yes, who can forget Mufasa's lesson to Simba on the circle of life as he was crushed to death by an earth mover doing the excavation work for a new mixed use condominium.

Lovers in a past life (funny quote)

Ha! "You meet someone and you're sure you were lovers in a past life. After two weeks with them, you realize why you haven't kept in touch for the last two thousand years." Al Cleathen

I should submit this to that awkward family photo blog

I just stumbled across this gem from my childhood which makes me wonder, what was the conversation my parents had before putting this on me? Had they just finished reading "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" and now wanted to try the principles out on their daughter? Did they repurpose a tablecloth or curtains? So many questions.
