Here is wisdom

...but maybe i need a toaster that scorches disney sillhouettes into bread. and i could probably use a webbed up fridge with a plasma display. i definitely need headphones and a tiny white rectangle. i mean, it will take 15,000 songs in my pocket, to shut out all of you bastards jabbering away on cell phones...

...here in southern ontario, we loves our suburbs. we are sprawling like there's no tomorrow. and we are using up some of the best farmland in the world to do it. all of the sprawl, all of the waste, all of the gluttony fed by oil. in the last century we remade our culture around the automobile. we changed the shape of our cities, we painted the landscape with tar and concrete stripes. but the fuel will run out. a dog will eat as much food as you put out. because the dog is wired to suspect that there won't be more of that easy food, so get while the getting is good. humans will devour the entirety of a resource because we are wired to believe that there will always be a little more, because we're kind of stubborn and greedy...


Go and read the rest...
