Nov. 5th, 2003

Apparently, my friends find it amusing when I get "worked up" over the fact that we, the virus called humanity, are progressively destroying the environment for our own greedy, selfish, stupid, capitalist gains with no consideration for the consequences of our actions. To the point of imitating me. It is apparently funny.

I don't think it's particularly funny. I'm actually mostly not joking when I, for instance, yell at the Swiffer commercials that they're going to kill us all and we're going to suffocate under tonnes of static cling cleaning cloths. Excuse me for having an ecological conscience. >.

I yell at the Swiffer commercials too, dear. :)

I think they're secretly being financed by Dubya. ;)

The ones that get me are the paper towel comercials talking about how using paper towels to wipe up rather than cloths are the "germ free" way to clean you house.

Can people really be this stupid?

Oh, yes. Especially the antibacterial ones. "You don't need those primitive immune systems! Let technology to it for you!"

Um. That would be "Let technology *do* it for you".

That's what I get for thinking I can be coherent at eight in the morning. o.O

Hold to your beliefs, stand up for yourself, mate. I get a lot of crap myself, especially with the cycling in and my refusal to patronise multinational companies and my boycotts of Shell, Nike/Reebok and Nestle (more political than environmental). And the vegetarianism. *sighs* Get hold of some literature, get your housemates to read it, make them understand that they're buying into the whole disposable planet attitude by their mocking of you, even if they don't buy the products themselves.

And yeah, sometimes it's a good thing I live alone - I abuse the TV whenever it's on. ;)

That's there problem really. I completely agree with you, Swiffer is wasteful. It makes me cringe... and unfortunately, nothing really works better than getting down on your hands and knees to scrub the floor... and I do mean on your hands and knees... it stays cleaner longer for some reason. Dusting was always done in my house with a damp rag, and well, unfortunately some of the smaller-brained people might think that static electricity is a new idea since Swiffer decided to make use of it...
