Today is Earth Day, and there is free ice cream at Ben and Jerry's.

If I want to hear the sky is falling, I'll get my grand daughter to read Chicken Little. I opt for the free ice cream. Eddie

That seems self-defeating, doesn't it? The more Ben and Jerry's ice cream that people eat, the fatter their asses get. The fatter their asses get, the more weight they gain. The more weight they gain, the heavier their SUV becomes when they place said fat ass in the driver's seat. The heavier their SUV gets they place said fat ass in the driver's seat, the more gas it burns. The more gas it burns, the more our ozone hole grows, polar ice gaps melt, and greenhouse gases build up . It's a vicious circle. Aw well. We're doomed. Might as well have some ice cream. the_reject

Did my part. Chopped down a tree, drove around for about 20 or 30 miles for no good reason and have the air conditioning on high. Always glad to do what I can for Earth Day. [;)]

I'll be sure to empty an old can of freon into the atmosphere, wash my driveway (get all that oil and rubber residue into the groundwater), drive a few extra miles (burn more oil), mow my lawn and run it at an extra rich mix (more CO and hydrocarbons into the air), and spray Roundup weed-killer and diazinon ant-killer around my foundation. [;D]

That remind me to mow the lawn this evening...

We're talking about an ice cream shop, and free ice cream cones here. The "A day in the life of" thread is elsewhere. Go find it. . . yours is a great story.

Gee... from the title of the thread and from your opening post, I thought it was about "Earth Day" and how some people are celebrating it. Are you sure YOU'VE got the right thread?

Let's see: This morning I sprayed VOC-compliant wood finish onto some cabinet doors, thus doing my part to contribute in some small way to "global warming". Then, I sawed, profiled and sanded some wood panels to help keep particulate pollution levels steady. All in all, a pretty uneventful Earth Day. [:D]

The problem with the earth is, I can still see some of it. We obviously don't have enough oil wells.[BD] In the immortal words of James Dean, "just keep punchin, boys"

I think I'll help out the earth by putting out several hundred lead bullets from my AR-15...

Wow, a little announcement about free ice cream, and you guys start with this stuff? The sweetness of a good cone might counter the sour acid from all the lemons you've been sucking. In retrospect, I think that a better suggestion might have been a place that offers free cigarettes.

I celebrated Earth Day by taking a couple of healthy dumps.
