Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope, and nice red uniforms - oh damn!Does burning people at the stake contribute to global warming or global cooling?Neither. Especially bonfires.The Busybodies of Brussels beg to differ, what?(Here, open fires are strictly verboten at all times due to fire danger. Wood fires in a fireplace or ordinary wood stove are verboten on some winter days due to air pollution and they have lookouts on a local mountain to spot transgressors.)

QuoteOriginally posted by: AlexEroVery simple:Stop oil idolatry.Stop car idolatry.It's not idolatry, it's that getting oneself and stuff from A to B is so damn useful. Plus, the planet refuses to provide a comfortable temperature year round. And what's with it being dark 50% of the time????

Windscreen wiper: 0.56m x 0.02m x 0.02mBox it comes in from Amazon: 0.60m x 0.46 x0.16mRatio 200.Seems a bit unnecessary. Not to mention windscreen wiper fits through letterbox, packaging doesn't and therefore possibly requires more fuel as one to's and fro's with the delivery retards.P

The doomsday vault is the first to fail 

"that is supposed to protect earth’s food supply in the event of a “doomsday” scenario."


Don’t panic, humanity’s ‘doomsday’ seed vault is probably still safe

fragile? lack of diversification in seed locations ?

is this how they got tropical trees there the last time, the doomsday vault melted and the coconut seeds were sprouting in the north? Can a polar bear crack a coconut?

The Icelanders have already don it!

They have banana plantations at Hvergeradi in Iceland and nice baths that are free (i.e forget Blue Lagoon)
