Solar Panels on Every Roof

November 6, 2007

I am not for government regulation beyond the authority granted by the Constitution, however, if the government can mandate things like catalytic converters for automobiles and the like, couldn’t they also mandate that all homes have solar panels on their rooftops? I’m sure there would be millions of square acres of panels generating trillions of kilowatts of energy, wouldn’t there?

So, why not?


What amazing stuff is out there ?

October 3, 2007

I have, in the last couple of days, started checking out Podcasts…..there is a major amount of not so amazing stuff out there on Podcasts as you would figure in a format that anyone can do sitting at home…..but upon closer look – what a BUNCH of cool stuff hidden amongst the rubble…..right now on my MP3 player I have 2 seperate hour long Reggae podcasts, an Alternative Country/Cowpunk podcast, a podcast where a guy talks about boxing, one where a guy reads the most difficult Crossword words (he says the clue and then spells the anwers, a 20 minute long Popeye Cartoon from 1936 and a fan produced program about Weird Al and that was all from the FIRST 2 days that I looked!

I told you all that to say this – I KNEW that podcasts existed and have never checked them out before – how much amazingly cool stuff is out there right on the internet for no extra charge – I bet there is a LOT


Quit Shaving and Help The Environment (?)

September 28, 2007

The thought crossed my mind today that if all the men in the world quit shaving their facial hair, the overall energy consumption and “carbon footprint” of mankind as a whole would be reduced. A lot less shaving cream would be uses/manufactured, as well as razor blades and the disposable plastic shavers. A lot less electricity would be used as well as no man would be using his electric shaver either. Men wouldn’t need batteries for their cordless electric shaver either.

Could you imagine every man, capable of growing facial hair, having a full beard and mustache? And any man with stubble could be pointed and ridiculed for damaging the environment with their vanity! 🙂
