Congratulations to Al Gore!

You heard that right. I am praising the Goreacle for making his house more energy efficient. After years of hearing him complain that I am living too lavish a life style, he's decided to walk the walk. He replaced all incandescent bulbs with florescent, bringing a toxic metal into his home just as I did. He's added a rainwater collection system (which is one of my dream projects), and even followed the lead of the sitting President and installed geothermal heating.

Welcome to the party, Al. Glad you could get that done before the Nobel ceremony. And if I made as much money as you, I'd do my house too.

Um, whaddaya gonna do with the million bucks you get with the Nobel? I could use some insulation in our walls. . .

Since it's trendy to be green, and people have caught up to me using florescent bulbs in light fixtures (the florescent bulb on my night stand has outlasted two lamps I put it in), you should know that I am one green SOB. I have two Linux computers, and as soon as I can get the right size CD/DVD drive, I'll have three. Linux reduces computer e-waste by 50%.

If you have a Windoze computer and want to be as green as me, send me $250 every year and I will send you a certificate stating that you have paid your karmic indulgence and are as green as me.

Global Warming Hypocrisy

First: Prince Charles--who has licked his finger, stuck it into the wind, and announced that Global Warming (Praise Gaia and her anointed profits [I mean that.] the Al Gore and Tom Brokaw and Prince Charles. Hah-men!) is the "biggest threat to mankind"--booked 62 seats for he and his staff of 20 to fly on a commercial jet to Harvard to pick up an award for his environmental work. He chose the commercial jet because the carbon footprint for a passenger jet would be smaller. Well, it would be if the jet was full. The math is at the link above.

Second: the Global Warming summit in Bali.

Umm. . . Why Bali? What kind of carbon footprint is dozens of flights to Bali so the attendees can tell that Global Warming is America's fault and responsibility? Couldn't they had had an Internet summit to make the point? Nope. Beaches on Bali, man. There are no beaches at Internet summits.

Now here's how to celebrate Jebus' birth: A dress made of chocolate!

And lo the angel of the Lord appeared and said "Have a Chokky, mate! Then follow the star in the sky. It will lead you to the Messiah, and ye shall buy each other expensive gifts on credit with no payments until Easter. The sight of your money rising from your wallet will remind you of Jesus rising from the dead."

"Put Christ back into Chri$tma$" indeed.
