    's OK - I didn't take offense. Even those of us who come from there will joke about it, but it is also good to remember that there are good things - there, as there are everywhere.

    I miss the cultural aspects - a lot. But I don't like being in big cities more than I miss the high culture, so I make due in hillbilly heaven.

    Agricultural pollution:

    Pigs Poop

    Cows Fart (plus fracking)

    Chicken poop (and a solution for what to do with poop)
    “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

    Here's some info on what one can do with the plastic eating fungi...

    A Mini Farm That Produces Food From Plastic-Eating Mushrooms

    The Austrian designer partnered with Julia Kaisinger and Utrecht University to develop a system that cultivates edible plastic-digesting fungi. That’s right, you can eat mushrooms that eat plastic. In 2012, researchers at Yale University discovered a variety of mushroom (Pestalotiopsis microspora) that is capable of breaking down polyurethane. It kicked off a craze of research exploring how various forms of fungi can degrade plastic without retaining the toxicity of the material. The findings got Unger thinking: What if we could turn an environmental problem (waste) into an environmental solution (food)?
    I'd buy a culture to play with, if it weren't so expensive. Any amateur scientists want to go halvsies?

    WARNING: ANIMAL LOVER RANT
    Now watch the humans blame the fish. Just freakin' watch.

    A guy on facebook commented on a photo I shared about slaughterhouses. It was a calf locked in a cage. He said "Humans are the best things to happen to cows. Cows would've gone extinct if it weren't for us."
    Uh huh.
    Eh hem. A qoute, if you don't mind-
    “If all the insects were to disappear from the earth, within 50 years all life on earth would end. If all human beings disappeared from the earth, within 50 years all forms of life would flourish.”

    -Jonas Salk

    It's the same with sharks. We complain about shark attacks? Well how about we get the ***** out of THEIR HOME?
    If you break into my home, I'm sure as heck going to attack you.
    A guy once told me anyone who loves sharks are freaks and all sharks need to be exterminated. Uh huh. Without sharks the ENTIRE ocean ecosystem would collapse. *please return to qoute above*

    We're so worried about how many likes our selfie can get or who's got the cuter boyfriend, and we don't even pay attention to the fact that we're killing the planet and everything on it. It's disgusting.

    I give you this:


    Can someone tell me what exactly the turtle did to deserve this??

    Oh I'm going to add this:
    Love me for who I am, not for who you want me to be.

    Not really.

    We are just really successful, evolutionarily speaking.

    Hopefully we have the brains to think ourselves out of being too successful, because otherwise we are in for a rude awakening in a few generations...but...

    The answer is:

    Sooner or later or not at all. It all depends on the choices that we are making right now, and in the near future.
