I'm thinking of changing my availability, eliminating Wednesday and substituting some other day. Maybe Saturday. We'll see.

Karma is such a bitch.
Short form: Boy Scout organization plans an event for four years, gets permits, etc. Hippie organization decides it wants to have an event in the same place. Person in charge tells Boy Scouts, "Yeah, you guys don't get to have your event there because we're worried about a riot."
Hippie commits crime, hippies close ranks when cops try to arrest hippie, riot erupts. Cops get pelted with sticks and stones.
The Boy Scouts were there to work--conservation-type things, you know--and the hippies were just there to party. Another take on the story.
This is so deliciously funny.
The ACLU, of course, is taking collect calls from the hippies in order to sue.

ZOMFGWTFBBQ, your flat-screen TV is causing global warming. Yes, the 4,000 tons of nitrogren triflouride that the entire industry uses--not "emits", uses--every year can cause warming equivalent to 68,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide! And it's not regulated! It has to be regulated! We don't know how much nitrogen triflouride is being released into the atmosphere! The evil corporations say they're not releasing any but we don't know that and won't know until and unless the government regulates it!
Which 68,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide? The first, or the latest? Because the latest 68 million tons won't cause nearly as much warming as the first 68 million tons.
This is bullshit. That's really all there is to it. Come back when you have some idea of how much gas is actually released into the atmosphere, okay?

You don't use psychologists to solve a garbage crisis unless you are batshit insane. No, the problem isn't that we need new places to put garbage; the problem is that people aren't seperating their recyclables?
Has the entire freaking continent of Europe lost its collective freaking mind?
One guy is quoted as saying, essentially, "We're not here to teach people something; we're here to teach them something." What the fuck does that mean?
The article doesn't say so, but I'd bet this has something to do with European Union regulations. In fact, I'd count on it. Jesus.

...it's 7:30 and I have to start getting ready for work in an hour. I'm going to go sit in my rocking chair and chill.
