    Environmental Pollution, the thread...

    Oh, look...there goes my favorite food...

    (I have lots to say on this topic, but I need to get back to work)
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Not really pollution per say (although its another side effect): Manquakes*


    *I hereby announce an alteration to the term "earthquake"--no longer are we referring to what is quaking, but *what the primary mover is in making it quake*. Plate-tectonics and other earth-driven geological caused quakes=earthquake; fracking=manquake.

    I myself have my eye on the pork shortage,and the chicken shortage. Chicken(and Maybe Turkey) from bird flu,and another bug killing young pigs.

    And the bird flu thing.

    Over 7 million turkeys and chickens euthanized in Midwest this year from bird flu outbreak

    So,maybe,just maybe we will be eating ground up bugs to get our protein.

    I mention this because I thing changing patterns in weather and temps can effect the disease factor allowing them to grow more quickly.
    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.
    Mark Twain

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    The wizard be in: But be warned if you poke him to much,the standard wand of anal probing +10 may be utilized.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    Trust lost,is trust never regained.

    Lisa Simpson's brief bug-eating episode springs to mind. The grasshoppers... oh the grasshoppers..

    To say nothing of the sink holes that open up above old mines. Detroit is built over extensive salt mines. I'm waiting for it to sink into the earth and vanish.

    P.S. The PC term would be personquake. This is the 21st century, after all.

    Detroit gone? That wouldn't be so bad to be honest. Well, unless you live in Detroit.

    LOL - have you been to Detroit? There is some good stuff there, although you'll never see that in the movies.

    Mmmm Detroit. The smell of pollution, and on occasion, if the night is right... Burning cars, oh yum. If you listen hard enough, you can hear the gun shots and the angry drivers stuck in traffic. So precious.

    Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, African-American Museum, Museum of the Detroit Historical Society, New Center, Wayne State University, Center for Creative Studies, Greek Town, Eastern Market Place, Fisher Theater, Bonstell Theater, as well as numerous smaller theaters, like The Attic Theater, the Detroit River (excellent example of a dead, polluted urban river brought back to life - record sturgeon are caught there these days, as well as salmon and lake trout, Belle Isle, Scripts-Whitcomb Conservatory, Dossin Maritime Museum, and more that I can't think of off hand...

    Don't believe everything you see on TV. Every large city has bad parts. Detroit is no different.

    I like to joke. Many good things have come from Detroit. Like the plague for example.
    No but seriously, it is nicer than people set it out to be.
