  1. The Scientific American article really makes you think. The fact that we are paying so many tax dollars to ship our Ethanol overseas so middle men can profit madly on both ends. While forcing use to by more and more foreign oil. It’s just an insane loop that they have us paying for going and coming. It’s just disgraceful and emblematic of the age that we live. Makes one suddenly think it’s time to occupy something.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
