Jehovah Witnesses Cause Environmental Devastation Of Biblical Proportions

Isn't it ironic that religious people want to tell you to believe in God [or capitalism, Buddism, etc], yet ignore/destroy the world they believe their Creator made? Huh?

"Jehovah Witnesses" [are they really witnesses for Jehovah?] drive around [and a-round] seeking souls to save. Yet they violate the very creation of the God they say they worship. Polluting also violates humans  - as we are part of nature.

Here is picture to document their violation upon an attempt to convert moi. They never returned as I confronted them with their hypocrisy. Unfortunately, this victim wasn't seen till later. But would they/we care? We need to stop we viewing our-selves as separate from nature.

Yet the book they preach from, also condemns them [/us?]:
How the oppressor has come to an end!...
All the lands are at rest and at peace;
they break into singing.
Even the pine treees and the cedars of Lebanon
exult over you and say,
"Now that you have been laid low,
no woodsman comes to cut us down."
Isaiah 14 NIV

Tiger Beetles Are Faster Than YOU!

These incredible predators of the insect world help to keep "things" in balance. They are part of the largest animals group on earth: beetles - which comprise of over 300,000 species. Beetles eat many things from rotting corpses to flower petals.  Tiger beetles, as predators, keep grasshopper, caterpillar and other insect populations in check. They are also prey to dragonflies, frogs, bird and small animals.

These guys can run as fast as 2.5m/sec! That is equivalent to 100 times there body length/second. If you compare that to the fastest human sprinter who clocks in at about 6 times his body length/second - that's pretty impressive!

Tiger beetles can't maintain a constant internal body temperature so they raise their long legs to create a flow of air under themselves - cooling off their bodies. You'll find them on roads sometimes but they prefer leaves, forests and less disturbed areas. So if you have land - keep it "messy" - i.e. natural - that way nature can survive. And since humans are part of nature also, both humans and tiger beetles will have a future two-gether. They can live without us, but can we live without them?

Small Spaces Create "Big Food"

It is amazing how much food you can grow in a very small space. And if gather the heat and protect from the cold, the season can begin months earlier. In January, the temperatures inside the greenhouse were around 100F. See previous posts for more....

Here's a picture of the wonderful food springing forth in spring!

The Chinese Take Over Mexico!

You think you are finally free of "them"....then they appear even on remote islands in the Pacific Ocean! The Chinese have a saying: "wherever the sun sets, you will find the Chinese". For more on the Chinese, consult the specialist/comedian Russel Peters!

This is an outdoor kitchen at a small restaurant on Isla Holbox. Check out the "health standards"! A few seconds before the photo, a dog and bird were wandering around.

Note the China [espanol] trying to take over the kitchen, the chef's job, the restaurant, the island ..... Does even our restaurant food have to be made in China? :)

Wild Edible Plant Tastes Tropical

The first time trying the fruit of this plant, I was astonished with the amazing taste. It tasted like a mix of pineapple and mango. Not knowing if it was safe or not, I spit it out. And now, sadly, I never find any ripe fruits. This is the mayapple - a common forest plant in Southern Ontario.

See if you can see the baby fruit:

Too Many Flowers! Let's Talk About Death!

I Wanna Breathe Dirty Air [subtitle]

I wanna feel the air I breathe
I wanna see the air I breathe
I wanna smell diesel in my air

The stronger
                The more putrid
                                The more it makes me vomit
                The better!

I sleep in my garage
                with the car on
I live under the freeway

I take smog pills
                On those few days of little smog

I especially like the summer
                in the city
Fuck the countryside
                                and trees

Give me cars, pavement and farts!
