Water Torture

water bottlesTake a standard 12 oz. bottled water container and fill it about 1/4 full of crude oil. That's just about how much crude oil was consumed to make the bottle itself and deliver the product to you, the end consumer. Now multiply that by the millions and millions and MILLIONS of plastic water bottles we use daily and you'll begin to realize that's a lot of freakin' oil.

Speaking of which, the plastic the bottle is made from leeches right back into the water you're drinking. So much for safer water, sucker.

Did I say "sucker"? Actually, I meant to say that anyone who pays 10,000 times more to Coca-Cola for the very same thing that comes right out of their faucet at home has to be considered a smart consumer. Good going, gang!

Seriously, unless you're currently living in an environment where's there's no alternative then you don't need bottled water. Ever. The sad truth is you probably consume the stuff as a result of being constantly bombarded by psychological attacks, otherwise known as advertising.

Do yourself (And I know I shouldn't say this because Americans hate to appear altruistic) and everyone else a favor and buy one of those new, inexpensive alloy bottles and always take it with you.

Or, you could just drink out of the fountain.

Rally To Restore Sanity Comes Home!

Rally your ass off!

wanted, fervently, to attend the Rally to Restore Sanity rally this coming 30th of October, but three days, minimum, away from the office wasn't in the cards for me.

So I was elated to hear that the rally has metastacized, in a good way, and is now in almost every state in the union. In addition, several foreign sites are hosting their own rally, too.

The nearest rally to me is in Austin, Texas and currently there are about 3500 RSVPs. (Rumors that a Dallas rally is in the offing, too) But the word is spreading and the numbers are growing. Share this info with a friend or two, won't you?

To find the rally location nearest you go to

This is good news to a lot of people but, seriously, if you can make the Washington, D.C. event then please, by all means, go. Tell 'em Lefty sent ya.

Excuse me, son. Have you heard the good news?
Man: If you’re referring to the new galaxy that was just discovered, the one
containing 800 trillion stars then, yes, I have.

Priest: 800 trillion...?

Man: Just imagine! For this one galaxy alone God would have had to create ten billion stars per second on the first day of creation.

Man: That also means that God purposely violated all the known laws of physics by having the light from these stars travel six billion light years across deep space in only 5000 years.

Man: I‘m now convinced that the prerequisite for religious faith is to have lousy math and logic skills. Frankly, I'd have more faith in winning the lottery. So, thanks for all the good news!

Priest: Excuse me, have you considered playing the lottery?

Woman: You've been talking to my neighbor, haven't you?
