Film Inhabit, re: Permaculture, Why We Don’t Need Monsanto IMNSHO

October 15, 2015

First, this film is not intended to be an attack on Monsanto in particular. That’s just my take.

Home page for the film: http://inhabitfilm.com/

There are a number of excellent points about a holistic look at farming in this film. Farming can produce high yields and increase top soil instead of depleting it. And, in some cases, it may not even need irrigation. This is a really interesting film showing a number of ways permaculture can be practiced in farm country, in the suburbs, and even in cities.

Buy Organics Because Shit Doesn’t Explode

April 18, 2013

First let me state that the victims and their families of this explosion and of the recent explosions in Boston have my deepest sympathy and condolences.

What We Know About the Huge Explosion at the West, Texas, Fertilizer Plant

Wednesday’s fire came one day after the 66th anniversary of the worst industrial accident in American history—the Texas City disaster, another fertilizer explosion that left 581 people dead when a French vessel hauling ammonium nitrate caught fire.

Bailey’s, It’s What’s For Breakfast!

January 30, 2012

I’m not trying to turn my blog into a cookbook. Nor am I accepting money from the makers of Bailey’s Irish Cream for this endorsement, but only because they haven’t offered me any money. But, I played around a bit with recipes and had to share these.

Bailey’s Irish Cream Pancakes and Popovers.

If you already know how to make pancakes and popovers, all you need to do is replace half of the milk in the recipe with Bailey’s Irish Cream. It really is that simple. Don’t skimp on the Bailey’s. You want that taste to come through loud and clear, so to speak.

Yuppie Coupons

Yuppie Food Coupon

Yuppie Gas Coupon

Yuppie Gas Coupon

The former is not original, obviously. The twenty has long been called a yuppie food coupon, probably at least since the 80s. Now it seems that the hundred should be called a yuppie gas coupon.


LipoBlow ™

September 28, 2007

There are approximately 1.2 billion people in the world that are either chronically hungry or starving. There are also approximately 1.2 billion people in the world that are either overweight or obese. This odd coincidence led me to a bizarre conclusion.

(I do not remember the exact source of my numbers. It was probably Plan B 2.o or Collapse, but could have been some other source. If you have more accurate figures, please feel free to post them. It will not be likely to change the point of this post, however.)

So, here is my idea, in case you didn’t guess it from the title. We can liposuck the fat out of the overweight and obese people of the world and either LipoBlow ™ the fat subcutaneously into the bodies of the starving masses or mix it with grains into nice high calorie LardAss ™ cakes to be shipped to the hungry and starving people of the world.

This could dramatically improve the health of the world’s population by simultaneously reducing obesity and starvation. Of course, human fat would not provide many of the other nutrients required by the starving people. But, when one is starving, even empty calories are a good thing.

Is this just the sick humor of a misanthrope making a statement about the state of the world or a workable solution? Which would be more appealing or less appalling, LipoBlow ™ or LardAss ™ cakes?

(The inclusion of humor in both the tags and the categories for this post probably gives me away.)
