Saving The Environment
Do you recycle?
Not only cans for the money, but paper, plastic, glass, hypodermic needles, condoms and anything else that could possibly be recycled?
Are you the type of person who will only drive your solar powered car if you have to go more than 20 miles, otherwise you'll ride your bicycle because you hate to waste solar energy?
If that is you then you need to see THIS VIDEO.
Go ahead, look at it.
You know you want to.

Wait, wait, wait.
YES, the Dihydrogen Monoxide petition is a telling event. The problem is that this was stolen by Penn and Teller from a science project done by a 12-year-old (I think) boy about eight years ago. I read about it in a gardening magazine.
It's an important point. But Penn and Teller shouldn't be stealing their ideas from children.

I remember the e-mail that circulated, and still does.
Penn and Teller are usually pretty straight up guys. I'm like to think that if they DID get it from a kid, they compensated him or at least got his permission.

What a hoot - I got this in my email the other day :p
I'm glad you're posting again Joat. I missed you.

I hope you're right, Joatmoaf. I know about their extreme Christian-bashing, so I don't think they're so "straight-up", but I hope they did compensate the kid (who would actually be an adult by now). Somehow I doubt it.
The magazine, by the way, was Gardening How-To, and the reason I don't have the exact information is that my copy was destroyed in a flood last spring. The magazine was (and probably still is) published by the National Home Gardening Club. The issue would have been sometime between 1998-2000, I believe.

Just a ps:
Not all of us recycle because we think it's The Right Thing To Do. Some of us recycle because the law requires us to, or because we have extreme financial incentives to do so (a 25% discount on the trash collection bill--I'll recycle for that.)
