Friday rant: Dumb and glum edition - Tom Toles - The Washington Post
If Eskimos have 26 different words for Eskimo pies, Americans ought to have 2600 words for stupid. Honestly, I simply don’t know what to make of us. Anybody up for burning down our houses, sowing our soil with salt and selling our children into bondage? We might as well! About 71% of the earth’s surface is oceans, and now we’re ruining that too!
Climate change (yes us), ocean acidification (carbon again! yes us), and overfishing (guess who?) should manage to turn this vast resource into a liquid desert.
