“Hey, buddy!  Just checking in to see how everyone’s doing out there,” Jack chirped gleefully into his Echo device.  He happened to be in a fantastic mood and wasn’t about to pass up an opportunity to taunt the Vault Hunters.  The bandits suffered a minor loss recently at Hyperion’s Wildlife Exploitation Preserve, but even if it wasn’t much, the fit they had over one stupid animal was enough to make Jack giddy over his victory.

Not to mention, he also happened to be balls deep inside the most perfect ass in all of Helios.  One of the code monkeys caught Jack’s eye after the kid scored an Eridium mine for the company, and instead of spending his bonus on himself, this guy literally gave his right arm for the company.  Since then, he’d been overjoyed to give a hell of a lot more than just his arm.

This kid, Rhys, was one of the few people who had been able to handle anything Jack could dish out.  He’d been given a safe word, but Rhys never used it and always came back for more.

Republicans Plan to Roll Back Parts of the Endangered Species Act
Some Republicans say it hinders logging and drilling

In control of Congress and soon the White House, Republicans are readying plans to roll back the influence of the Endangered Species Act, one of the government’s most powerful conservation tools, after decades of complaints that it hinders drilling, logging and other activities.

Over the past eight years, GOP lawmakers sponsored dozens of measures aimed at curtailing the landmark law or putting species such as gray wolves and sage grouse out of its reach. Almost all were blocked by Democrats and the White House or lawsuits from environmentalists.

Now, with the ascension of President-elect Donald Trump, Republicans see an opportunity to advance broad changes to a law they contend has been exploited by wildlife advocates to block economic development.

“It has never been used for the rehabilitation of species. It’s been used for control of the land,” said House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop. “We’ve missed the entire purpose of the Endangered Species Act. It has been hijacked.”

Emphasis mine because it’s not like those endangered species need viable, untouched habitats or anything…. oh wait. 

After playing the Son of Crawmerax DLC as Krieg, I think I finally understood what his story is. His name really is Erik Franks, the one Dr. Samuels was forced to do slag experiments on. After the events heard in that ECHO in the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve, she took pity on him due to the similarity of their stories (she was forced to work for Jack to see her wife again, and he was taken away from his husband), but she was caught in the act and became a cavy herself. Dr. Samuels helped Krieg escape, but didn’t manage to follow him, that’s because the “sane inner voice” of him keeps referring to a mysterious “she” that might “still be out there”. Somehow, after the events of the game, Dr. Samuels broke out of prison (probably after becoming insane herself) and helped Krieg with that doctor that wanted to kill him (remember the ECHO at the end of that quest? “SALUTATIONS PSYCHOMAN, I’M SORRY AS A SLICE WOUND SINCERELY SAMMY”. Where Sammy is the nickname Jack gave her). I’m proud of myself.

Sorry for spamming, but I just wanted to share this story with you: So, I was recently playing BL2 for the first time (took me long enough, I know), and I was listening to the German voice actor of Mordecai dropping information about the Wildlife Exploitation Perserve...only he flubbed the line, and called it Wildlife EXPLOSION Perserve, and somehow nobody in postproduction noticed, so the line made it into the game. Damn, Torgue should sue the fuck out of Hyperion.

hdsgjkdfg i love this

mordecai actually calls it that because he wants to blow it up #confirmed

“After a long Hiatus from BL2, I picked up the game tonight and found myself in the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve towards the end of the mission, now I’ve long since hardened my heart to the ‘Final Elemental’ scene, I honestly got a chill when I heard “Vault Hunter, get down.” as Mordecai lets loose a torrent of death on the loaders Jack subsequently send after you. it was cold hard fury tempered with burning resolve to kill that Pendejo.”

The Wildlife Exploitation Preserve

Jay gathered all the equipment he had, his guns and shock stick in his digipack, and his large bowie saw knife strapped to his lower back. He headed off after making sure Della would be safe at the house on her own, letter her know to ECHO anyone if she needs to. He fast traveled to Outlook and set up a Technical. Now he waited for Birdy to meet up with him.


The international trade in butterflies ( and other insects/arachnids) is so much larger than I initially thought. The international trade in all wildlife is much larger than I initially thought.

The trade in these animals will never end until the last individual is dead and then the trade will go on with no regulation because there’s nothing left to protect. People just do not care about the wildlife they exploit, it’s all about the money.
