    “Liar as a child, thief as a man.” Littering is the most fundamental way of showing complete disrespect for our lifespace which we share with every other living thing. If we ever caught our children doing it, they would never do it again.

    Sometimes I wonder if the anti-regulatory crowd has an extra planet stashed away somewhere, where they can move once this one is completely uninhabitable. Or maybe they’ve just given up and think “I want to keep more of my money so my children can afford all the gas masks and water filters they’ll need once I’m dead and gone”.

    Throwing stuff into garbage heaps is probably built into our genes. We’ve been doing it as long as we’ve been around. Archeologists love it — in my area, we look at the ancient trash heaps in Egypt to find Greek literature. There was a time when it didn’t matter too much — you could move to get away from the smell — but no longer. It’s a bad habit we’ve got to change.

    Masterskrain, fast food containers are nothing compared to the plague of “disposable” diapers!! However, in ancient cities, the sewers were in the middle of the streets, a little later, “gentlemen” walked on the curb side of the walk with their female companions, so they, not the woman would be struck by the offal thrown out upper windows.


    Today, like in the bay, we just flush our wastes “out of sight, out of mind”. Even with “modern” sanitation stations, a little short-cutting on design and costs, with the occasional raw sewage spill, is acceptable by most as opposed to spending the extra nickel to protect that out of sight environmental site.

    Trolls are those who put forth opinions independent of fact, often to provoke a response rather than a dialogue. They reveal themselves by refusing to acknowledge all the vast amount of information out there on their topic of choice, and then insult those who offer some. See, for example, the topics of Anthropogenic Global Warming (which is well established fact at this point, but not to many posters on this list), evolution, and the like.
    Saying “do not feed the trolls” is a way of saying not to engage with these people, as you are merely providing them the opportunity for the attention and response they crave.

    “One man’s troll is another man’s free from facts fighter.”

    ROTFL!

    Excellent, man, just excellent.

    Bravo, sir! As succinct a description as Webster ever provided. I propose its immediate adoption. Let it be further resolved that hereinafter those person previously known as Troll shall be known a Free from Fact Fighters or 4F’s for short.
    Henceforth let our battlecry be DFT4F.

    “One is real, the Other is an Agenda. (human caused AGW)”

    And agenda perpetrated by nearly every climate scientist in the world not employed by fossil fuel companies.

    “Throwing stuff into garbage heaps is probably built into our genes. We’ve been doing it as long as we’ve been around.”

    Up until the last few hundred years, most of that garbage was basically natural foodstuffs and pottery. As society advances, our trash becomes more and more poisonous. It’s definitely a habit we must change.

    You guys do realize Ayn Rand wrote novels? Fiction?
    .
    She did it for a living, it was her job. I read her books as well as a great deal other fiction. Heinlein makes a more coherent statement in just about any of his books, but I would not base a form of government from his characters.

    The brain chemistry changes over the years. Sometimes notably. Those who work with the elderly (such as us . ;-) may tell you of people who suddenly start to express sentiments they never before expressed. Similarly, those who work with heart-lung machines, have a term “pump-head” for the apparently common insane behavior of those undergoing heart operations etc.
    From what I’ve gathered, and God knows I’m no expert, it is a frequent but not inevitable occurrence.

    @stipple, i agree completely about rand and heinlein. I really never understood how rand was elevated to prophet by the right wing. and i always thought heinlein’s science fiction was much better thought our and written.
