I'm not really a tree hugger, and sometimes I hate how things change to "save our environment". My question is: Do they really? Or are we making our lives miserable for nothing?
So yeah, here's my list of rants (not that I'm trying to be mean or anything).
[LIST][*]Yeah, I know you drive a Prius, but have you forgotten about what kind of stuff they use to make those batteries that hybrids have? On top of that, new cars are made out of raw materials, which come from somewhere.[*]People who drive 55mph on the highway to go an extra 5 miles on their gas tank (A: that speed limit was designed when cars and big rigs got the same mileage, and B: is it really worth it having someone's great-grandmother FLIP YOU OFF?)[*]The thing against bottled water (or other drinks); it makes me thirsty just arguing how stupid banning it is.[*]Organic food...last time I knew, if it was inorganic, it wasn't edible and i'd be eating the table. (what I'm saying is...don't call the FOOD that!)[*]People who give up their cars as an environmental statement (I could see surviving without a car in New York City or something like that, but in most other places, surviving on mass transit is unrealistic...and there are some things you do need your own car for)[/LIST]
