Footprints

Zombie at Pajamas Media looks at all the other type elemental footprints we have besides carbon. It’s hard to reduce your footprints, so I want mine to be as big as possible. Thousands of years from now, I want archeologists to say, “Wow. You can sure tell Frank was here.” That would make me feel good.

  1. You could, ussjc. But will you?

    Now, what I don’t understand is how the gaseous elements leave a “footprint.” For example, how do we classify environmentalists who leave a gaseous stink everywhere they go? As a foul fog…print?

  2. I subscribe to the “Last Oreo Theory” of environmental conservation. Let’s say there are only 2-3 Oreo’s in the cookie jar. Because there are only a couple, it doesn’t really matter who gets them, so you might as well eat them before anyone else gets them.

    It’s the same with natural resources. If we’re running out anyway, conservation isn’t going to do much, so I might as well use and burn all I can.

  3. I’m with you, Burmashave. People are always saying how we have to save oil. Save it for what? You gonna put it in a museum or something?

    As long as oil is around people will depend on it. The less of it there is, the closer mankind will be to a replacement. I’m doing the world a favor with my lead foot and my big V8. Not that the world ever thanks me for it. Stupid world.

  4. Yeah, Son of Bob – it’s strange. Her ass gets wider as she works to make sure there are fewer fat kids. What happened to all those fat kids? Is their disappearance somehow related to her ass getting wider…hmmm?

  5. We need to close all hippie health food stores to help offset their methane footprint, and whatever other gases emanate from their filthy, unwashed bodies and their smoking Subarus.

  6. Thanks for the reminder Live Free! Speaking of being on a roll, Marko… Earth Hour. That’s the time when I announce to all my liberal relatives (who doesn’t have them – they’re like the plague!) that I’m turning everything ON in celebration of Michael Faraday, Carl Gauss, Nicola Tesla and James Maxwell. As far as I’m concerned, my liberal relatives can all return to the cave… naked and cold.

    (I know I’m leaving some great people out: Georg Ohm, Joseph Henry, Alessandro Volta, Charles de Coulomb, etc.)
